Hola Queridos familiares y amigos,
          This last week has been such a blast! We have found so many new investigators and we really could have some potential baptisms that might be coming up pretty soon but we still have to see just how it will go. We had divisons with the zone leaders in our are this last tuesday and it was a lot of fun. We found 6 new investigators in total and we have 3 baptismal dates that we have set up from the week! We still have to work with these investigators but we could potentially have some baptisms coming up in the next few weeks but we will still have to see still. We went and did interviews with President Resek this last friday. We traveled to Chivilcoy a town about 2 hours from Junin and we stayed in the apartment of the zone leaders. They told us there that President Resek gave us permission to skype our families because it was mothers day here in Argentina! I didnt believe them at first honestly but I was really excited about it! We then traveled back to Junin and were able to skype yesterday! It was so much to talk to the family I didnt really think we would be able to skpye until Christmas! It was so much fun to be able to do it and to be able to talk face to face again. Its only two more months until we get to do it again in december! Anyways it has been an awesome week! I am so excited to see what this week will bring! Anyways its been great here in Junin with Elder Alvarez! I wouldnt mind staying here another transfer honestly. We have a zone conference coming up in a few weeks so we will be traveling to Ramos Mejia but we have a little bit of time until then. Anyways love you all hope you all have an awesome week! Until next time that we get to chat!

Hola queridos amigos y familiares,
          This week has been an awesome week! I received my new companion from Mendoza Argentina and his name is Elder Alvarez! He is a way hard worker so I´m way excited to work with him for this transfer and I believe we are going to see a lot of miracles. We traveled on the bus from Buenos Aires until we made it out here in Junín it is a travel I will be getting used to I think or at least I´m used to it by now. When we got here we went and bought some food for the week to cook up and then we were all settled once Elder Alvarez got all unpacked. I´ve been able to communicate really well with him and I´ve been able to learn a lot of new words and phrases that I haven´t learned yet until now. I´m really glad I have Elder Alvarez to help me learn the language a little bit better too when it comes to phrases and that sort of thing. Being a district leader is definetly a little bit different you don´t have a lot of time to just sit and think because you get back to the apartment and you still have things to do but it has made the days fly by really fast having something to do. I´ve been cooking a lot lately and gaining an appreciation for having a mother who would do that for me and put up with it whenever I complained about what we were eating. It has been a great week though and it was awesome to be able to watch general conference. I wished I would have took it more seriously before it really is a blessing to have prophets and apostles that guide us in these days. I loved the talks by Elder Holland and Elder Uchtdorf they helped me remember that we all make mistakes and we shouldn´t be hard on ourselves. Anyways that is what has been going on lately! Can´t wait to talk more next week! Love you all and have a great week ahead! It is a joy every week to be able to talk!

Dear family and friends,
          This week we have just recieved some news about transfers, I will be staying in Junín and becoming a district leader and my new companion will be Elder Alvarez from Mendoza in Argentina! I hope my spanish is on point! I´m also a little nervous about becoming a district leader because it is the first time so we will have to see how it will turn out! It has been a fun 6 weeks though this last transfer! Hopefully I will have some time to be able to go fish more this next transfer too! Hahaha! We have been working pretty hard though and we are going to be organizing a talent show that we are going to try and invite a lot of people to that is coming up in November so hopefully we can invite lots of people and have some success with that. We traveled today from Junín to get to the mission offices here in Ramos Mejía. It was about a 3 hour trip way faster than the last time we went out to Junín! It has been a ton of fun to be out in campo (Country) though! It is way pretty, we will hopefully get some baptisms lined up though. We work in a branch so it is really small and I have the opportunity to bless the sacrament every week. It is a great experience and it always is a honor to be able to do it. The sacrament really is awesome and to think about how much the savior has done for each and every one of us. I was stressing out a little bit with recieving news that I would be a district leader and recieving someone who has less time than me. When I was in sacrament meeting though I felt peace and my nervousness went away. It really is awesome how much our Savior comforts us in moments of stress. He really is a blessing! I´m grateful for everything he did for us! Anyways this is all the news of the transfers and everything that will happen here in the next week. Can´t wait to see how it will turn out! Love you all thanks for writing and it definetly is a joy to be able to write everyone every week! I hope all of you have an awesome week!
