Hey mom! I sent an audio recording talking about our week! The Mp4 player that you sent can do audio recordings and I can send them! It is so cool! I will write a weekly email for this week but if you guys feel like the audio recording is better I will just send that instead of writing an email so then that way you can hear about all the week instead of just a shortened version of it. Let me know if it works! It is crazy I have already hit a year! We bought a cake and put a candle in it to celebrate! I turned one! Hahaha! Anyways that was a really cool mile stone and it is literally just less time now than what I have! The interviews went really well it is always good to hear from President Resek when he gives us counsel and stuff like that. The coolest thing that happened this week is we met a member from Venezuela and he loved baseball! We just talked about baseball in a family night we had with a family he knew who Jose Altuve was! He plays for the astros it was really cool! The one thing other than family that I miss from home is going camping and being in the mountains hunting and fishing. That is one thing that I definetly miss. I will probably still be here by next week unless something really unexpected happens. Anyways love you so much mom! I love being able to talk to you every week! Have an awesome week ahead if we don´t get to chat!

Dear Family and Friends,
          Well another week has just flown by and it has been a great week as well! Wednesday we went to do divisions with the other elders in Los Pinos and it was a ton of fun. I went with this Elder named Elder Affleck from Idaho. We went and shared a scripture from Ether with 14 people who were high on marijuana that was an interesting experience. Elder Affleck said him and Elder Dixon met them before in the street and one guy said he believed marijuana is like a potato plant so it isn´t that bad for you. It was really funny! Thursday we had a zone conference and for lunch we went and ate at this restaurant that was really good called Carmens. Friday we had our p day and me and Elder Nash went to another place called San Justo and we went and bought myself a backpack and then ate a
 this pizza restaurant as well it was really good! Saturday there was this guy that drove up to us on his motorbike and asked us what it takes to be a mormon, we were like BAPTISM! That was really sweet! Yesterday we also taught a muslim! He was from Africa and he is here working in Buenos Aires because the work is better but all his family lives in Africa and he is just here working. His name is Jimmy he is probably the most interesting investigator I´ve met down here. We will see how it goes with him. That is pretty much our week though! 

Tonight we have interviews with President Resek and then Tuesday we will have divisions with the zone leaders but we also get to watch the message from President Nelson so we will see if we even have divisions. Anyways it should be a pretty solid week! I know that God is always there to comfort us even in our times of trials and that he does reward us for our efforts. We can turn to him for peace and receive the strength we need! Anyways love you all it has been so much fun to be out here serving the Lord and preaching the Gospel in Castellano. Have a great week everyone and can´t wait to talk to you all again next week and share what happened in the week!
Love Elder Orr

Dear family and friends,
          This week was such a blast! We had so much success in this week! We found this guy named Miguel while we were teaching another investigator and he said how he was searching for a church to be baptized in the way Christ was. We talked about baptism and he accepted a baptismal date for the 3 of february so he is preparing to be baptized then! He is way awesome, he came to church yesterday with his girlfriend and we are going to be meeting with him in the week! He was way awesome but anyways we had divisions in our districts as well! We all worked in our area and it was so much fun we all played this game we invented with a points system and the losers had to buy pizza the next night! It was a ton of fun and we contacted like 40 people in the whole day! It was so much fun! I was on the losing side though by one point but oh well we will do divisions again this week! I´m not going to lose again and spend more money hahaha! Anyways it was a really busy week and we will have another really busy week this week. We have a zone conference this thursday which should be a lot of fun. So the week is pretty much getting booked up already and it hasn´t even started! Anyways it was a great week we had a lot of fun and I can´t believe we are already halfway through the transfer already! Anyways since it was fast and testimony meeting I wanted to share my testimony.
          Sé que hay personas que el Señor prepara. Cuando una persona está buscando la verdad siempre la encontrará. Yo había visto muchos milagros en estas semanas de personas que nos necesitan. Sé que esta es la iglesia de Jesucristo. Yo sé que Tomas S. Monson era un profeta de Dios y que Dios continua elegir nuevos profetas para guiarnos en estes últimos días. Voy a apoyar el nuevo profeta que vamos a tener y sé que la decisión del nuevo profeta va a ser una decisión de Jesucristo a quien es la cabeza de esta iglesia. Comparto estas cosas en el nombre de Jesucristo nuestro Salvador. Amén. Les amo mucho y espero que tengan una buena semana y que puedan hacer todo lo que tengan que hacer!
