Nov. 20th 2017

This week has been really interesting, we were in a trio up to thursday until Elder Winward got sent to another area. Now it is just me and Elder Nash and it is honestly kind of nice we are back in a normal companionship because it is hard to talk to people in the street when there is three of you. Now it is just the two of us and it is a lot more easier I think. Elder Nash is a capo! He can communicate really well with people and he understands a lot of spanish! We had a baptism coming up but we have to reschedule it so we need to have another interview and see when we can be able to baptize her. We will probably get it this week. We went to help an english teacher with an english class this week for a service activity. It was weird to talk in english to all these Argentine kids, when I finally did speak spanish to them it totally blew their minds that I knew spanish it was so funny! Our district we have all four elders from Utah so it is really fun. The other two elders live above us so we always see them and it is really fun! It is kind of fun to work with a bunch of Utahns because we seem to think alike! Hahaha! We got a lot of work to do this week! We hope to have this baptism come through for us but we will see how it goes. I read a really good scripture today in 3 Nephi 18: 30 I thought about how great it is to help other people to come unto Christ and it really is a blessing to help others to come and be baptized and repent of their sins. You get to see this great change in their lives and it really is a great blessing to have a front row seat to watch it. Im grateful for the opportunity I have to be here in Argentina preaching the gosple and I just feel so happy that I cant even explain the joy I feel! Just being able to participate in this great work is a priviledge and a great blessing. Anyways this was a cool scripture I read and that is what I had thought about. Anyways love you all and can´t wait to talk more next week!

Dear family and friends,
          This week has been really fun and a lot of new changes and crazy things that have happened. So I arrived to my new area in Ramos Mejia and it is called Atalaya. There was 4 of us Elders in the district but one of them had to go home because he had really bad scoliosis so we are in a trio for now and we might join some other elders in a district so we will see what happens. It has been a ton of fun though! A lot has happened and it has definetly been a new experience to train! It has been a ton of fun though! We are now walking so we don´t have bikes anymore and the area is so much smaller than Junín. Elder Nash my new companion is awesome! He is a crack up he has a really funny sense of humor! He is great! We have a baptism coming up on the 25th of November so it is really nice to just walk into a baptism hahaha! We aren´t doing laundry in a bucket again thank goodness and honestly I don´t think I ever had too because there are a lot of laundromats in the city. We now will have pdays on thursdays now which is really nice because we get more time to do other stuff. So now on mondays we write our families and do our district meeting, and do all of our planning and then thursday we just have a whole lot of time to do other stuff so it is actually really nice! I´m not even sure if I will be a district leader here anymore because our district just disappeared so we might join districts with some other elders that live right above us because it is only going to be us two in the district. I am eating pretty well though too! With all the changes and the crazy stuff that is going on I´m eating pretty well por suerte. It is always a little stressful for me to move into a new area because I don´t want to ruin everything the Elders before me had worked on but it is just part of the experience and I need to just put it in the Lords hands. I read a really awesome scripture today and had a really cool thought. I read from 2 Nephi and I can´t remember what chapter or verse and I don´t really have time to look for it but it talked about how Nephi wrote to persuade his children and his children´s children to come unto Christ. It really made me realize that how the prophets not only wrote scriptures because they were commanded too or they just wanted to reprimand people but they did it because they loved their children and they wanted them to recieve a remission of their sins and receive salvacion one day. I just had that really cool thought and just wanted to share it with everyone. Really they loved their families and they cared about their salvacion. Anyways love you all very much I already have to go but I hope you all have a really awesome week! Love you guys! Can´t wait to talk more next week!

Dear Family and Friends,
          Well transfers came and I´m heading back to the city! I will be in a area called Atalaya which is close to the mission offices in Ramos Mejia. I will be a district leader again and finish the training of an Elder that came to the field last transfer! My new companion will be Elder Nash I don´t know where he is from but I will find out pretty soon! I have been in a new zone everytime I have moved which is crazy and I can´t believe I´ve already got 4 areas and I haven´t even hit a year yet! It is crazy! It has been a ton of fun in Junín though! Really neat city and a lot of cool sights and places to see! I will definetly miss Junín but I´m also excited to go to a new area and apply the things I learned here in my new area! So that is exciting but we will see how it all will work out! I´m pretty excited! Sorry I couldn´t write a whole lot in this email but I better go. Love you all and have an awesome week! Can´t believe how fast the time is flying by honestly!
