Hey Mom :D

I can`t believe that in 2 or 3 days I will be hugging you. Prepare yourself for the best hug of your life! :)  I`m sure going to be thinking a lot of the plane ride back. I still don`t feel it hitting me yet but I feel that when I get on the plane it will all come down and get to me. Ah GOOD NEWS. When I get to Buenos Aires president salerno arranged for us to go to the temple. That will be a nice experience. :) I will have lots of fotos and things to tell you about in a couple of days. I will see you soon :) :D

Hola a Todos!!!!

I hope you all have had a fantastic week. Here`s our week summed up. :D This week we placed 4 baptisimal dates!!! We have been super busy lately with all our investigator. If things go acording to plan this week we will have 4 baptisms. We hope that graciella and her grandkids will be able to be baptized. This week we have been facing a bit of oposition but it has only served to make us stronger in spirit and testimony. It`s sad to see just how hard people can be but I just remember that it`s not my job to soften their hearts. That job belongs to the spirit. The best we can do is invite them to do something with their faith and share our testimonies. We have done a lot of that this week. I know that this church is the only true church on the face of this earth. This gospel is truly precious. I love being a missionary and sharing it with others. I`m down to 13 days left so i`ve got to make the best of the time I have. Next week will be my last letter to you guys so ´till then I hope you guys have a great week and know how much I love you all. :D

Hola mi querida mamá :D

It´s wierd to think i only have 5 weeks left but i´m more charged and excited to work than ever. It seems that as the time passes I get more excited and anxious to work. We have been super duper busy this week with getting to know the other missionaries. There are 2 new sisters and 1 new elder in the zone. The new missionaries have a certain spirit about them that´s nice. :)

 The other elders in my district also had a baptism this saturday. They have been baptizing a ton!! With all the baptisms that they´ve had. They´ve kept me busy with doing baptisimal interviews. 

On sunday all the members that went to the temple shared their testimonies. I could feel the spirit very stongly as they shared their experiences. The temple truly is the lord´s house and I am excited to enter once again in 5 weeks. The blessings of the temple are divine and I know they are true. The members that went have really served as a great example for me. I can´t wait to see you guys and tell you all about these wonderful experiences and to hear about the things that have happened in my absence.

I´m glad that you guys are getting everything all situated for my homecomming. I think it´s a lot better getting back and having everything begin all at once. haha It will be a trial for a little moment to get adjusted to everything but in the end it will be good for me. I would much rather have it be that way. :) 

For now that´s all for this week. I will write my group letter to tell everybody about graciella and her family. 

Have a good week muver dear. :D

Hey Everybody

I´m going to make this letter short and sweet. We had our transfers and it is for certain now that I will be spending my last 6 weeks in the area i´m in now. I am in Trelew in a ward called union 1. I hope all you guys are having a great day! :D

We found a new family to teach. They came to the church twice and they also came to a baptism we had. They are so nice and we are going to invite all 8 of them to be baptised this week for this comming month. :D The work is going onward. Have a good week you guys. I know this church is true and that the lord is working miracles in not only our area but throughtout our whole mission. "He aquí, Yo estoy con vosotros hasta el fin del mundo, amén."

p.s. On June 30th president rogers goes home and the new mission president will be comming. :D

WOW!!! There is just so much news happening since our last letter. Dang!!! Where do I start? 

Thanks for the birthday wishes :D I feel old! XD hahaha On sunday we ate empanadas with the guerrero family. They are super great members and they made me a cake and everything. I´m pretty sure they sent the photos to my facebook or yours. Idk I´ll have to check :D On my birthday a lot of the members took a bus to go to the temple in buenos aires. It´s so wonderful to see the sacrifice some of the members make to be able to go. The bus ride is about 24 hrs long and they stay in buenos aires for about a week or so. They should be betting back around saturday. If only we could go to the temple that would be cool. I need to go when I get back!!! :D 

I´m happy you guys enjoyed father´s day. That gorcha pork roast sounds really good!! When it comes to food when i get back I´m good with anything american. i miss a good ol´ american hamburger. I will probably want to eat anywhere. I´m not picky :D I will cook argentine for you guys when I get back too so that will be rico. :D 

Our week has been so busy. Our new investigator, graciela, has come to church twice and this last time she brought her grandchildren. In total they are a family of 7 or 8 individuals. This week we are goign to invite them all to be baptized. :D They are for sure our biggest miracle this week :D 

I´m happy that you guys liked the photos :D It´s been a while since I´ve taken some mainly becuase comodoro rivadavia was so ugly xD haha I will try to take more photos from here on out.  In puerto madryn i´m pretty sure that those are humpback whales. idk. I will send more photos especially with these 6 weeks I have left!! Transfers came and it looks like I will be staying here in trelew to end the mission. I love this place and we have so much work to do. I´m not homesick just yet. xD haha 

President rogers leaves aregentina june 30th. When you see them you have to tell them that I said Hi :D 

I got grandma and grandpa´s card with the 20 dollars. :) In cash I have about 65 bucks  In pesos i have a ton so I think i´m good for travel.

That will be cool if you get the flagpole in the new house. I´ve bought an argentine flag and I think it will look really nice. :) I am also thinking about buying another argentine flag that will be super big. You´ll see when i get home ;)
