ARGENTINA COMODORO RIVADAVIA SPANISH SPEAKING MISSION
HOLA HOLA HOLA
Is my english really getting THAT bad!! :O Oh, dear........ What have you done to the house!! You´re going all out this year!! I LOVE IT!! I´m happy to hear and see that everything is going soooo great over there. I REALLY REALLY REALLY enjoyed the smilebox you sent me. I laughed when I saw the picture of Lyndon and Laura. It looks like you´re office really is in safe hands xD haha.
Here in Argentina they don´t celebrate thanksgiving. But on thursday I did get cussed at. Shortly after we contacted a lady and something else happened. My comp didn´t tell me about it until the next day because He knew i would have already been more mad than before. Basically, We started the contact and then out of the blue she says "He´s cute" throughout all this she´s looking at me. After that she said "I want a Gringo Baby" I had no clue what was happening but long story short..... it was a short contact. Despite all the people making me mad here, there´s always something to be thankful for. Sorry, that was all negative. Now to the happier parts of the week.
Last pday we went to a place where we bought churros bathed in chocolate and stuffed with dulce de leche. They also put peanuts and coconut on top. OH IT WAS TO DIE FOR!!! P: I´m starting to be able to talk to people now. It´s not that I don´t know how to speak, it´s that I don´t want to. It´s getting better though....Thankfully. I´m grateful for my comp. Thanks to him I now understand a lot more deep doctrine stuff than I ever knew before. It´s amazing.
I Laughed when you told me I´m tan xD hahaha My comp always bugs me about wearing my sunscreen. You´ll have to wait until Christmas to see how tan I will be then xD haha That´s what happens when Gringo and little ozone layer mix. xD haha
Anyways, Our investigators are doing well. All the baptisimal dates fell. One because they need a paper to get married again. and the other because his father won´t let him. I´m grateful for the spirit though. After the lesson with our 15 year old investigator, I felt that now we just need to wait for the lord to work with us according to his will. The discouragement was taken away and I just felt happy.
That´s all for this week. I´m happy things are going well at home. I love you all so much. Keep working hard.
Con todo el amor en el Mundo

p.s. My comp says packages still make it here, if they don´t want anything inside of it. I still haven´t received it yet. I don´t know. If you wanted to try it again It might go through.
