Then on Friday we had Trámites, which is Visa stuff, I ended up not doing anything except being other missionaries companion but it was fun! Except me and Elder Gonzales got split up, and him and a different missionary decided to go to the other missionaries first area for fun. I was able to spend some time with Elder Derbez and his companion though! But instead of going back to Las Flores after Trámites, we had to wait for Elder Gonzales to get back. He also left his backpack in a remis (taxi) ,so we spent a couple hours getting that back, and ended up sleeping in Cañuelas and coming back Saturday morning. We barely missed the bus on Saturday morning so we had to pay 600 pesos to come back to Las Flores in a remis haha. The other option would be wait for 3 hours.
Today we had grilled cheese sandwhiches, tomato soup, and ´Gibson Potatoes´ ,cuz I wanted Elder Gonzales to get a little taste of America, but we have to go to Cañuelas in a few hours to attend a training thing for District Leaders early in the morning tomorrow in Buenos Aires haha. I hope we will have enough money to pay for rent.
On Sunday we had an amazing sacrament meeting. Our congregation of 24 members and investigators was crying after the Branch President bore his testimony for a second time. He´s the best, definintely a general authority some day, he bore his testimony after me and talked about the power of missionaries and how though I couldnt speak well i could express my love and invite the Spirit. He also served where my companion is from! So thats cool.
Well I love you all and am glad to recieve all your emails and hear from you, even if it takes awhile for me to respond. Im also glad to hear my sweet little cousin friend Grace has decided to take upon herself the name of her Savior! She will feel blessings for the rest of her life for what she did this last week! Same with you Paden, my big friend (theres an Aquabats reference for ya)!
One month in the field! They say the first month or two or three go by the slowest, but this month seems like it went by kinda quick. Anyway, recently in Las Flores its been raining like crazy. Our shoes, bikes, and slacks have been pretty much caked in mud recently, but its kinda fun.
First of all, big welcome home to my brother Wes, big shout out to his dedication and his commiting to live in the wilderness for 50 days, and of course his beautiful beard. Winston is now the only brother who has yet to show off his beard. Yes Ethan, that means I finally admit what you had was, barely, a beard.
Wooh! How yall doin? I made it! The flight was long, but it actually felt really short. I didnt sleep at all. I mostly just played Sodoku. It went by quick, but I was super exhausted when I got to BA. First things I noticed were the humidity and how everything is green. Love em both.
Well that was quick. We got our travel plans on Friday. We leave Monday morning to fly to Atlanta, then from there strait to Buenos Aires. We will land around 9:30, and we will land in my mission. I know a few elders going to BAS as well, and most of my district is on the same flight. Super excited and ready to not be ready.
