Dec 23, 2013 Pre-Skype Call for Christmas

Hey! I don’t have a lot of time! This has been an interesting week. The other companionship in our Ward and in the pension got a new companion. His name is Elder Atchley. He likes working with computers and playing computer games and dungeons and dragons and stuff like that, so it’s like cool and stuff but like none of us have anything in common and so it’s been hard for him. He is just straight out of the MTC and so he doesn’t speak Spanish very well. And he is not used to walking all day And so his companion, Elder Hankins is trying really hard to one connect with him, and two help him. So I try to help as much as I can.

We have found a new investigator. Her name is Elve. She has a super strong testimony and a bunch of Faith! We met her and she was just telling us about her and what she’s gone through it was insane! She is definitely prepared and elect. But we haven’t seen her since Monday or wed, I can’t remember, we are going to stop by today.

That’s super cool that you got to go in the temple! I want to see more pics of it. I think Camilia is going to usher for the open house. And Spencer is working in it and everything! Haha. But it’s okay! I can’t wait to go! 18 months! Whoo!

So it’s really hot here, all the time! And they are having a lot of problems with the energy. There are power outages like crazy! Luckily it hasn’t hit our pension. But a lot of the people in our area have been without lights for a couple days! It’s horrible. And so I was sitting here writing and the computers and the lights shut off! They just barely got everything working. But ya. Things are good. The ward loves us. We don’t really have much plans for Christmas yet. Tomorrow we are going to eat lunch with the President and the entire mission. And some people have said they want us to stop by but we don’t have much set in stone. My Spanish has gotten better and I am understanding more and more each day! Oh. They also told us that we were going to be without water for a while. And I wasn’t going to get dehydrated. We filled up the Fridge. IT ended up that I don’t think they turned off the water. Or they did and turned it back on before we got home so that was good- Planning on the roof with my Planner that looks AWESOME! Soda, music. Almost everyday! It feels so good up there at night time.

Oh ya they changed out schedule because it’s been ´´dangerous´´. We have to be in the pension at 8 o clock and study language 8-9. And we have to leave a whole hour earlier in the morning. And it’s hard because the people in Argentina really treasure their sleep. They sleep from 1-10 and 1-5pm Everyday! And it’s almost everyone! Member’s nonmembers, their dogs! Everyone! It’s super annoying! So usually in the morning. It’s just walking around talking to the drunk people on the side of the road. Haha. Send my love to the Ward! I am praying for them and if love them! Wish them Merry Christmas and tell them that I said remember why it is called CHRISTmas. In Spanish ´´mas´´ means more. So remember put Christ first and everything More lately. ! Love ya!
