Dear family and friends,
          This week has been a great week! We finally had our baptism this last Saturday! Patricia was so excited and so happy it was a really great experience for Elder Nash as well! It was his first baptism so it was a memorable day for all of us! We confirmed her yesterday in Sacrament meeting as well so she is officially a member! It was nice to finally have a baptism for the first time in a while! It makes me want to have a baptism every single week! We will just get working on that for this week! This week has just flown by next week is transfers already! We will already find out here in a little bit what will happen. Tomorrow we have interviews with President Resek so I´m excited for them! This last Friday me and another Elder named Elder Dixon traveled out to a city called Lujan in campo. We went out there to sing in a choir for a open house in a chapel. It was really fun it reminded me of Junin! Lots of open space and really pretty! So we sung in a choir and then traveled back with President Resek by car back to our apartments. It was really fun and got to see some new sights! Anyways it was a really fun week and looking forward to another great week ahead! Most likely I won´t be with Elder Nash for the next transfer but we will see what happens sometimes you just never know until it happens. Anyways it was great to talk to you all! Have an awesome week ahead and can´t wait to talk again next week!
Love Elder Orr

Queridos amigos y familiares,
          This week has been a little crazy! We had to move the baptism because Patricia had some health problems but we are happy it was just that. We now are going to be baptizing her this next saturday is what we are going to be trying for! We really want to get it done as quick as we can and I just really hope this baptism just doesn´t fly away! Anyways it has been a really busy week! Our district all joined a choir so we go to the offices every thursday now to practice and it is actually a little fun. I never imagined joining a choir in my life before. It is kind of nice though because I will be able to get my package this thursday so that is pretty exciting! We are going to do divisions with our district tomorrow so we will be going to work in a different area for the day which will be really fun! The members here in this new area are so awesome! We get so many lunches and all the members are really strong and doing a lot of missionary work! We taught someone last night that was friends with some members and their is another family that we will be going to teach here pretty soon that knows another member family so it is really exciting! Elder Nash is getting so good at teaching! He is just improving more and more everyday with teaching and speaking the language! It is so much fun to speak spanish and to finally be able to understand what people are saying! Since it was fast and testimony meeting I want to share my testimony in Spanish with you guys! 

Estoy muy agradecido por la oportunidad de compartir el Evangelio con otras personas! Realmente es una bendición que me trae mucho gozo al hacerlo! Yo sé que el bautismo es muy importante en el plan de salvación que Dios tiene por nosotros. El bautismo es como una puerta para entrar en el Reino Celestial y vivir con nuestro Padre Celestial y nuestras familias para la eternidad. Es algo muy especial! Al estudiar el Evangelio cada día y enfocarme en ayudar a otras personas es algo que me ayuda crecer mi fe en Dios y también desarrollar un amor por la gente! Yo sé que esta es la iglesia de Jesucristo y que solo por medio de la iglesia de Él podemos disfrutar de todas las bendiciones del Evangelio! Les amo mucho y estoy muy agradecido por la oportunidad cada semana para hablar con ustedes! Muchas gracias por todo el apoyo y amor! Digo estas cosas en el nombre de Jesucristo. Amén.

Thanks for all the emails! Have an awesome week and can´t wait to talk more next week!

Queridos familiares y amigos!
          This has been a really awesome week! We are going to be having our baptism this next saturday and we are both so excited! We just need to plan it well with the ward and to be able to have a successful baptism and we are ready to go! This week has been a ton of fun! We went to La Tablada to do divisions with the zone leaders in our zone. I went into a villa for the very first time! It was way cool it is basically just a bunch of homes built really close to eachother and it is like a giant labrynth. It was way fun and a really neat experience! I got to do divisions with Elder Metzner he is from Germany and it was a way fun division to do with him! We contacted 44 people in the last two days! It was the most people I had ever contacted in that much time before! It was so much fun too because me and Elder Nash just made a game out of it by picking people for eachother to contact! It was a ton of fun and a rush! It made these last two days go by so fast! With this baptism coming up it is going to be a ton of fun and a way busy week! We have a lot of things to get working on to make sure the baptism is a success. I´m excited for the week that is coming ahead though! We had a zone conference today and we all ate lunch in a nice restaurant as a zone. It was way fun to be able to have lunch with all these different missionaries. I´m excited to get out there this week and give it all I can to be able to share the gospel with other people and open the doors to the celestial kingdom for them. What a blessing to be able to help others to be able to enter into those doors! I know that this church is true, there is not a doubt in my mind that Christ is the head of this church and guides it through a living prophet just as he had in times of old. I know that only through Him and the principles that He has taught that one can enter into the kingdom of God. Anyways I´m running out of time but this is my testimony that I want to leave for now. It is an exciting week coming up ahead! Can´t wait to talk to you all next week! Tengan una buena semana!
