Busy Week...Sorry I Missed You on Monday

Happy Thursday!!

I know, you are all thinking, "uhhh what happened? Today is Thursday." Well let me explain.

At the end of every month we have a a meeting with Pte. Salas to discuss how the month went, what we are planning on doing in the coming month and so forth. This month, President and the asistants decided to have the meeting on Monday to spend P-Day together. Elder Lorimer, Elder Moore, Elder Antúnez and Elder Bullock all came Sunday night to stay the night because they had long bus rides to come into the city. So it was good to see a couple elders and hang out a little bit Sunday night. Then Monday morning we got up and got ready and went on over to the mission home for our meeting. As we are all hanging out eating the breakfast they had for us, Sister Arnold comes in. Sister Arnold is the wife to Elder Arnold, the area president. Seeing her there, meant he was there. What a surprise. We had an excellend meeting with him all morning. Talking about the Lord's work, lighthouses, consecration, and other subjects. He also told us to tell our families that he loves us and prays for us just like our families. After Elder Arnold spoke he quietly left and we continued the meeting with Pte. Salas. We then ate lunch and hung out and played soccer the rest of the day there in the mission home with the president and everyone. We got home at nine that night so there was no time to hit the cyber.

"That's all good and well," you are thinking, "but today is Thursday, what happened to Tuesday and Wednesday?" Tuesday I was busy working with Elder Lerma (TX), we had a great day, full of work, full of fun. Wednesday, I was busy on exchanges with Elder Bryant (AZ), so again I wasn't able to go to the cyber. But now here we are, Thursday, and I am finally with my comp again and we are able to inform our families of how everything is.

I am doing well, although, slightly ill. Monday I went to bed with a wicked fever, a wickeder congested/runny nose, and the wickedest sore throat. Everyday there has been some improvement but I still sound like a frog when I speak and still can't breath. But, as we know, no unhallowed hand will stop this work, so I continue finding, teaching, and baptizing. I love my job. Too bad they don't pay, or I'd do it professionally haha.

I'm glad you all had a great Easter weekend. Mine went well as well. Here the Easter tradition is hallow chocolates filled with little candies, they are called "Huevos de Pascua" which means Easter eggs, although they are not eggs haha. They also follow the Catholic tradition of not eating read meat, so I had fish for the second time in my mission, I miss sea food!

Aiight, love you all, I'll be writing on Monday and calling on Sunday! Take care, catch ya on the flip side, chau.

Happy Monday! Things are still going wayyy good. Elder López is a stud. He is great missionary and a great person and in seven short days has made his way into the legendary companion ranking. Thanks to my new comp my Argentine slang is on the ups. Now I'll be going home speaking Porteño as if it were my first language. (Piola means chill/cool).

Yesterday was a great day, we had 15 investigators in church. That was way awesome. We had a new family of five go, and a couple others. Funny story, Miryam (the sister of Marcelo and future member of the church), was surfing the web and says she just happened to come across the Levi's Quest page. It's nice to know it's still running and that I have at least one follower. Cool fact: in Elder Flaherty's district, all the missionaries are from Arizona, so we call it a District of Zion (or District of "Zona"). Now we are working for a Zone of Zion (or Zone of "Zona") haha. This weekend we should be having some baptisms!

And I don't know if you remember but my birthday is coming up pretty soon, so if you wanna send me some American goodies or photos or anything, that would be super amazing.

Let's skip to the miracle of the week. Yesterday there was a fifteen year old young man who was in church. I didn't know him so we got to know him. Turns out he is a friend of a member, he has been going to seminary for several weeks now, but had never been to church. He enjoyed it and accepted to get baptized. We have an appointment with him tomorrow, super piola ;).

As we conclude another week of awesome, I'd like to give a shout out to everyone who supports this work and supports me and puts me and more importantly those I serve in their prayers. Love you all have a great week!

Paz, amor, chau, besitos,

What A Week - Wedding...Baptisms...New Companion

Alrighty, let's start with transfers, shall we?

Elder Antúnez left to a town called Cruz del Eje. I stayed in 9 de Julio. My new companion is Elder Lopez. He is from Buenos Aires, Argentina and just came from the city of Villa Dolores! He is super awesome and we are going to do great things in our ward.

Speaking of great things in our ward, we had a super d00per weekend. Friday morning Marcelo Paz and Silvina Navarrete were legally wed. Elder Antúnez and I were there amongst the family and the friends. We took pictures, we threw rice, we did it all. It was way awesome. We then did our missionary thing, and finished the day with the wedding reception. We ate, we danced (not really, but it was a little tempting), and we were extremely happy for the Paz family.

Saturday was a super busy day preparing the baptismal service. It was an incredible baptism for Marcelo and for Milagros (Marcelo´s younger sister). It was honestly one of the most rewarding moments of my mission. I love the Paz family, and I am super excited I still get to see them, and baptize the two people that still haven't done it. Although I am one who has never liked to stay in an area too long, I love my current ward and I'm excited I get to stay and continue working, especially with my first Argentine companion.

Sounds like everyone is doing good. I hope the Coral Pink trip is amazing. I, like Tate, cut my golden locks on Saturday. It was past missionary length, but was not like Tate's hair haha. I am training Elder Lopez on the Zone Leader scene. He is so excited and sincere though that he'll get it down in no time.

Aiight, love you all have a super awesome week, I'll catch y'all on the flipside.

Work...Fun...Work...It's Worth It

One more week completed of work and fun and work. Tuesday I was privileged to work with Elder Tyler Payne Goodman of Prescott, Arizona (his twin brother was my companion in the MTC). He came on over to 9 de Julio and we had an awesome day. Had a lot fun, did a lot of catching up and a lot of teaching, contacting, moving, and serving the Lord. It was way good, and even though the two Elder Goodmans are different, it kinda felt like I was in the MTC again. It was a great day.

Friday was April Fool's Day. It was also the day in which Marcelo and Silvina Paz made the final step to getting married. This Friday Marcelo and Silvina are getting married! They are an absolutely amazing family and I am so excited for their wedding and their baptism and their life in the gospel. They loved General Conference. They went with notebooks and an open heart with the intention of learning and being able to more closely follow the Savior. We also had other people in conference. I myself really enjoyed conference, but I wasn't able to see the last two talks or the prophet's closing remarks due to an unexpected hail storm that messed with the satelite. It's okay though, I'll read it when I get home. I'd do it here, but the Liahona always gets here late, especially when it's the Conference edition.

So I'm doing great. This is the final week of the transfer, so next Monday, you'll be updated on some changes (which I'm pretty sure will occur, but you never know). I hope you are all doing great. I love you all and hope you have a super week.
