HOLA!!!! That's crazy news about Andrew. I hope he goes back soon.This week was pretty good. We had zone conference and it was awesome! President Ayre talked to us a lot about doing everything through the members. The actives, less active and recent converts. Our mission has a goal of 2000 baptisms this year and we are close, so President Ayre is really pushing us to have more faith and expect miracles. We visited an active family this week and their niece just moved in to live with them. She is from Paraguay and she is 16 yrs old. She went to church and she liked it. Her name is Milagros and she is awesome! She is a little timid but she is loosening up. Please pray for her. I am still playing tennis at least once a week. The last time we played he beat me 6-4. It was a long set. Its been so fun playing. It doesn't feel much like Christmas here. Its mainly because of the heat. In the stores there are a lot of Christmas decorations and all that, but it is just different without some cold. We do have Christmas music though so that's good. But I am still loving it!!! Mom I have not got the package yet. I hope it gets here. About calling, I am not exactly sure at what time I will be doing it but I will probably be doing it between 4-6 Argentina time. What do you guys think about that? Mom I love the pictures! Thanks for everything! Love you guys!

HOLA!! How was thanksgiving?? Thats awesome that you guys played a family football game! I would of loved that! For thanksgiving me and my companions didnt have lunch so we made german pancakes! It was super good!!! Other than that thanksgiving was just a normal day here in argentina. Everything is going really well with my new companion. He is working really hard with the language so i am loving that. He is constantly studying spanish! I speak almost all spanish to him. This week we found a lot of new investigators but not a lot progressed. Saturday two teenagers came up and talked to us in the street and we invited them to go to church and they came! I think they are more interested in us being from the states but we are going to work with them so keep them in your prayers. There names are jason and darien. I played tennis again this week but didnt play too good. I lost 6-3 but the set took like one hour. We had some awesome games. My backhand is just horrible. Thats about it for this week! Thanks for all the prayers and everything else. Love ya!

Hola familia! How's it going? This week went pretty good. First off my companion is Elder Brady from Holladay Utah. He is from the same ward as President Ayre, His Spanish is alright. I am trying to find ways to include him more in the lessons. He is awesome and super funny! He loves our area La villa! Yesterday Alejandra and Gloria got baptized!! It was an awesome experience! I have loved teaching them. They have both changed so much! I know that your prayers helped them out a ton so thanks for that. Right now we really need to find more people to teach. We are finding quite a bit of people then dropping them right away. Tito was also baptized. He is an awesome kid. I want him to serve a mission in a year! The sad thing about him is he is moving to Bolivia this week so we have one more week with him. His baptism was awesome also!
That's about it for this week. Sorry it is so short. Have a happy thanksgiving! Love you guys!!!!
