Skype in 6 days?!? wow! - May 5

Hola Familia!

This week was pretty busy but it was really good. We had a few meetings and things but I am really excited to keep working and finish up strong in Azcuenaga!

I am excited to skype with you guys this sunday!! I am thinking that we will be calling at about 3:00 UTAH TIME. But just be ready and have your email open just in case of a problem. haha like last time when the power went out!

This week we are planning to go and start the process of MARRAIGE for D and R! We are really excited and i am kinda pushing to get it all done before I leave :) I think they are on board, but I will have more info to tell you on Sunday! The ward is already really happy and excited to have them in the ward, we had Ward Council yesterday and we are gonna try to help them get involved with activities and all that good stuff.

Wednesday we had Mission Counsel again. It was really good like always, I am always surprised how fast each month goes by. I found out that I will get to go to one more as a Zone Leader and it will actually be the last one of Pres. Giuliani. I am going to miss him a lot, we have gotten a lot closer since I have been ZL and he is a great example to me. He already told me I can go over to his house in Provo when ever I want ;) But everyone has said that Pres. Zanni (the new president) is really great, strict, but a good guy!

We had a ward activity this Thursday because it was a holiday, I think it was the Argentina form of Labor Day. It was really fun, we played volleyball and stuff. It is interesting because before the mission I really didn't like ward activities at all, but now as a missionary I see the importance of them, even more in a ward that struggles to grow and have that family feel.

So I don't know if you guys realized.... I still cant believe how much time has past. But yesterday P hit her one year mark as a member of the church. May 4th. I called her on Saturday night and she is happy. She had a little bit of a rough patch in the church but she assured me that she is back. I am actually going today to visit my first area in Las Heras. I am really excited to get to visit P, J, The B Family, The G Family, and a few other random people. It will be great!!

We had Zone meeting on Saturday and it went really really well. Everyone left really excited to work and all. I gave a training on Contacts and how important it is to contact people and to reach the Mission standard of 140 contacts each week. We have seen the number of contacts shooting up recently in our zone, and we set a goal to keep it going up!

So i found out that packages can still make it in!! not with food but other stuff. I just have to pay 25 pesos (like 3 dollars) when it gets here to receive it. So I was thinking if you want to send a small package with the ........ and maybe some ...... we can talk more about that on Sunday!

I am really excited to see you guys, have a great week and keep up on your scripture study and prayers!!! Love you guys!

Hola Familia!
Okay I have to admit, mom, my week wasn't very exciting either. I sat down and as I was reading your letter, I realized, hmmmmmmm..... yeah not to much but I will do my best to expand on the stuff I have to make it worth reading :)
So first thing, last pday we went to....... wait for it.... play bowling!!! surprise! haha but it was really fun and I pulled off a 163. (the picture dad sent me of me bowling when I was 5 is awesome!) While we were in the bowling alley, you wont believe what song came on! Mr. Jones! haha it made me think of all the times going for drives with Dad in the Fiat when we had that. like 1000 years ago :)
On Wednesday, we had transfers again. (The worst part about being a Zone Leader) we were in the bus station for a solid 12 hours on Wednesday. Tons of missionaries passed through and it was fun/boring/long/exhausting haha but we had 8 changes in our zone. I am really excited to see how everyone works this next transfer, we have seen a lot of people happy with their new areas/companions/districts. We are also trying to see how we can help more as Zone Leaders so that everyone is excited and working hard. Everything starts with setting the example so we have been working on everything to set a good example.
We are still working with D, R and their families to have a big baptism on the 31st of May. That will be my last weekend in this area and it would be sooo cool to be able to finish on that! D and O his brother are going back to school which has been a little hard because we cant visit them that much, but we are still trying to have FHEs and stuff to help them!
We met this lady named G this week. We feel like she is very prepared to receive the gospel and everything. We were going to go on Saturday and we had planed to give her a baptismal date but on friday night someone broke into their car and lit the whole thing on fire. It was torched bad.... We felt really bad but there is nothing we can do ya know?? But we are going to go tomorrow I think, her daughter is only 12 and already started reading the BOM.
I had to go do my fingerprints for my visa again because they lost the last ones, that was actually really fun because we got to spend time with the secretary Elder Hill, he is really cool and we get along really well. I will have to go again next week to finish the papers for my visa. Luckily they do all the work, i just have to show up and sign a couple of things and wait in lines haha.
Sister N gave us an awesome reference this week! her name is I, (kinda an odd name but she is cool) She was gonna come to church but had to go to her Sisters house. She is 19 and her mom died about a year ago. She had a lot of great questions about the church and when we invited her to go to church she was all in! She is going to come to FHE tonight and we are gonna continue teaching her!
Well that's it for this week, i hope you are all doing well! have another great week and think about what time will work best to call for skype! next week we can organize all of that! love you guys!!
