ARGENTINA COMODORO RIVADAVIA SPANISH SPEAKING MISSION
Hola mi mamá
This week has been pretty good. I still have another week in the transfer. This transfer is 7 weeks instead of 6. They do this so the MTC and the mission fields are all coordinated nicely. :) I will find out transfers though this week so i´ll tell you all about it next week. This week we were able to visit some people and invite them to come to church. Only 1 person came though xD hahaha We had a big lunch on friday with one of the councelours of the bishopric and they made us tacos xD hahaha My mexican comp was pretty happy about that. They turned out really well. In argentina they eat more pasta and asado than tacos.
That´s cool to hear that grandma and grandpa will be comming to visit for spring break. :) Tell them Hi for me when they get off the plane :D It makes me laugh that colorado is so wimpy with the snow xD hahaha Here we had the first day of autumn so it will start to get cooler pretty soon. Lots of things are going to be different when I get back, repeating winter and fall again, going from sea level to high up in the mountains. I hope I will be able to breathe when i get off the plane xD hahaha
I love 3rd nephi when christ is teaching the people as well. One of the things that always gets me is trying to think of how christ must have felt when he saw all the nephites. I´d imagine that he must have looked down at his hands and feet and thaught to himself of what he had just done. The atonement is something that I am sure that I will never understand completely and perfectly but one thing is for sure. I know that he lives. I know that the atonement changes lives when we begin to comprehend it. I´ve seen it change people and it has changed me. I hope you guys have a wonderful easter and remember and reflect on christs atonement. :) I love you guys. I hope you have a wonderful week :D

This week has been Great!! Our new investigator we found last week has been very interested to learn about what we believe. We showed him some videos teaching him more about christ´s atonement. We watched one called "falling plates" and it helped him understand a lot more. Even though he is just a teenager he is in the vicious cycle of drugs and alchohol and he wants to change. It´s cool seeing the atonement change people´s lives. This week is the last week of our 7 week transfer. I am sure I will be getting transfered to another area, my last area. At the end of this week I will almost only have 4 months left. I´ve just got to make the best of the little time I have. x)
It´s always exciting to hear about what you guys are up to. I can´t wait to see the photos of your skiing trip. Are you guys going to monarch? One pday when my email wasn´t working I looked at the trail maps of monarch and aspen and It´s so cool to see what fun things they have up there. Just send me photos and I won´t be jealous. It´s great to hear of all the fun stuff you guys have planned. :) Don´t worry, when I get home I will help talon develop more of the adventure spirit so he won´t be a wuss puss. xD I just hope he doesn´t wuss out when it comes to cedar point.
I got the photos of the new room. I will look at them after I finish this letter. I hope you guys have a good week and enjoy spring break. Love you guys!
