Wow and Greetings family and friends!
I honestly cant believe that this is the last week. Time is just going by way too fast for me. This last week has been pretty good and we have been busy. We didnt have a baptism last week but this week we are planning for a lot. We are teaching quite a bit of people and they seem really good and should progress later on. We had four investigators in church yesterday and it was amazing. I love seeing the hand of the lord in all things. It was a blessing we had to be able to complete with our goals. Today we are going to have a baptism and it should be really good. I love this place and Im going to be sad having to leave it. But I know that its in good hands. The ward is growing and I hate to see it grow without me but its all for the good.
As for my comp and I we are doing good. We are working hard and things seem to be going good between us. Im the first comp that he is "killing", so its a new experience for the both of us. He is a little bit nervous for having control of the area but I know that he is going to work hard and improve it. As for me Im doing good. Im just trying to work hard this last week and I try not to think too hard in whats left. Things are going good. I just cant believe that this is my last letter to you guys. I still remember the MTC like it was yesterday. Time is just going by way too fast, but I guess that the way it is. I love this place and Im going to miss a lot. My knee is trying to hold on just a little bit longer, but its there. Today we had interviews with President Levrino and it was really good. He is a really good guy and I love how I can trust in him. We didnt talk to much today because he is waiting for my exit interview with him next week, crazy! Today he mentioned quite a few times the word marriage and it was really weird. We had a little training meeting before and to show an example on how to ask a question, He asked me "elder wade will you get married in the next month and a half" Everyone started laughing and he got a kick out of it. But things are going good. Today I spent most of the morning talking with the hermana that lives in front and also buying some stuff for you guys. So today is going good.
Sounds like you guys are doing good. I love reading your letters and seeing the things you have to say. Im also excited to see you all in the next week, crazy huh?! Keep up the good work and see you soon. I love you all and I wish and pray the best for you all.

Well hello everyone and greetings from down south.
Well things are going good and they are progressing. This last week was very interesting like all first weeks of the transfer, but it was a good one. We worked hard and we found and tought quite a bit of people this last week. We found fourteen new investigators and they seem to be pretty good, we´ll see what happens in the coming weeks. We ended up teaching 34 lessons all week not including less actives. So it was really good and I loved it. Well we finally had our baptism this week and I was thrilled to finally have one. It was really good and you could feel the spirit really strong. Her name is Lidia R and she got baptised on Friday and confirmed on Sunday. Yesterday we only had one investigator in church. But things are going good and they seem to be getting better everyday.
For us down here the things are going good. My comp is a really hard worker and we get along alright. Its weird being with a latino after so long with gringos. But he is a good kid. He is the only member of his family and the youngest. So he is a big example of why he is out here. For me things are going good and they seem to getting better but faster everytime. This week we worked a ton and things went well. We worked hard everyday this week, that when we got to the pension we were wasted and super tired. It was a really good feeling to feel that way. I know that we are here doing the Lord´s work and He wants our all from us. The weather this week has been pretty crazy, first hot and then it gets cold and rains a little bit. Its really starting to bug me a little. With all this change in the weather I think that Im starting to come down with a little something. But I will push through it. This week we are looking at a couple more baptisms and I super happy for that. First we have to get some married and they have thier date for this Friday. Here you have to have witnesses and they choose me to be one of the witnesses. So Im getting ready for that. On Sunday we had a visit from a member of the seventy Elder Spitale, from Cordoba. It was really good and he talked about the goals that the area has for us down here. One of them is that there are more full time missionaries serving in Argentina from Argentina. It was good and he quoted Pres. Monson from two confrences ago saying that it is a commandment for us to leave on the mission. He also stated that we shouldnt have to think or pray if we should go or now. Its a command from God to leave. I was really good and I loved it. So thats the news that we have down here.
Sounds like you guys are doing good and loving life. I loved the pics and thats quite a bit of pumpkins that your have there Brian! I love you guys and I wish you a happy Halloween!!!
P.S- Halloween really doesnt exsite? down here, but I´ll eat a lot candy anyways!

Well this week was a good one and we had many things going for us. It was a full week of running around and trying to find and teach our investigators. We taught quite a few and they were all really good lessons. There are quite a few things going for us down here. We planned on having a baptism last saturday but we didnt have it because she ended up going to Salta at the last minute. So we have around 3-4 planned this week. Our investigators are doing good and we are helping them slowly but at least we are helping them. We should have one getting married this week so that she can get baptised this weekend. For the marriges down here you have so much paperwork to do and a lot of running around. But we should be getting them married this week. Yesterday we only had one in church, almost tw but he came late. But the one that came to church should be getting baptised this week as well. So as you can tell things are going good.
We you might be wondering what happend to us in the transfer. Sadly to say that my comp Elder Lessing got transferd to Tucuman. It was tough when we recieved the call saying that he was leaving. We both wanted to stay togeather for one more, but I guess the Lord had different thoughts over everything. So Im now with my last comp, Elder H from Chile. He seems like a good kid and has a ton of energy to work. So it should be weird because I´ll get to know him and then I leave. But its going to be fun. In our appartment we are two gringos, Elder A, from South Jordan, and me. And then two chilenos, my comp and elder R. Im happy because I will be able to work on my spanish some more before I come home. Im doing good and I keep pushing along here. Today my knee has been bugging me and I dont know why, but I´ll push through it. Last Saturday we had a confrence with Elder Aidukaitis of the seventy and it was really good. He is from Brazil but speaks spanish and english really well. He talked a lot on how us missionaries can become better and teach and baptise all the people that the lord has planned for us. I liked it and I learned a lot; which Im going to apply these last months. But things are going good and shall be getting better. Our neighbor´s dog still hasnt had her pups but they should come in the next coming weeks. Im excited for everything that is happening and thinigs are going good.
Sounds like you guys are doing good and your enjoying your summer almost winter weather. We just seem to be getting hotter and hotter. I love reading your letters and seeing the pics of everything. Thanks for everything that you do for me.

Things are going good and they seem to be getting better. This week was a really good week for the both of us and I loved it. Our lessons this week were amazing and I loved everyone of them. We have quite a bit of people who are getting ready for baptism, for the most part. Most of them still have problems but we are working with them to get rid of them. But yet again ther were many different problems for us as well this week. This weekend was perfect to have investigators and we tried so hard to get them to come but only one came and we didnt even get to know him until saturday night. But for the most part our investigators are doing well and I guess we just need to find a little bit more of them to keep working well.
As for my comp and I we are doing good and we just keep on working hard. I love working with my comp and he is just a super stud. We keep working hard and pushing ourselves to get better. This week showed a lot of improvement in our teaching and I loved it. Im doing good and I just keep pushing myself to hold on. Things are going good and they seem to be getting better. This week was weird because with the confrence this weekend it pushed our scheduel a little weird. But it was all good. I loved watching the confrence and its going to be weird not seeing as a missionary. I was a able to watch the priesthood session in spanish and it was really good. I like being able to watch it in spanish and understand it, but for me its better in english. But it was really good and I liked it. I was able to see a lot of members from Perico that I havent seen for a long time. So I like it. But things are going good and I love it here. Today we helped the hermana that lives in front of us. We cleaned the garage and burned a lot of news paper. Its wierd because we burned the paper and trash in the street, not good but oh well. And while cleaning we found a foosball table in there and my comp and I had a preatty intense game. But thats about it.
I love to hear that you guys are doing good and that your enjoying your time up there. Just keep up the good work and enjoy your time. I love you guys and I miss you.

Well hello everyone and greetings from down south.
Wow can I say that its crazy how time flies when your busy doing good things. But things are going good and they seem to picking up. We continue to keep working and pushing hard to complete with the goals that president has set and may I say taht we are doing good. This week was another tough week but we did what we could and we did alright. We are still working with a lot of people to get them progressing towards baptism. We found some realy good investigators this week and they really want to get baptised. Then we are still working with some of our old investigators but things dont seem the same. We have a kid that is ready for baptism but we just have to teach him most of the stuff and get permision from his mom, but he is a good kid. Yesterday we had three investigators in church and they are super close to baptism. But things are going good and I am loving it down here.
As for my companion and I we are doing good and we are still working hard togeather. Honeslty my comp is such a stud and is amazing. I love working with him and he has so much energy to work and pushes me to have it too. We are doing good and Im loving it down here. Im doing good and I still try to push through the days. But things aregoing good for me. This week was really interesting because there is a guy here that is trying to convert us to the truth. It was interesting because he made us watch some anti-mormon movies and some other stuff like that. But other than that things have been normal down here, if you would call it normal. But things are going good and thats all that I can ask for. I super excited for General Confrence this weekend and I cant believe that its my last one here. But thats about it news down here.
Sounds like you guys are doing good and are loving the good old fall weather. The weather down here has been hot adn just seems to be getting even hotter. I love that you guys are doing good. Jayson good job on your games this week and keep it up. Dad and Jake I love the shirt ideas and it should go good. I love the new color of carrots, super weird. I love you all and I wish all the luck in the world for you guys.

Well things are going good and things seem to be getting better. This week was a tough week and things didnt go quite as planned, but it was still good. We worked hard but we still didnt complete with a couple of the goals, but oh well. This week we taught a lot of people who have a lot of potential for baptism and with some we confirmed when they are going to get baptised. So things are looking up but its going to happen with some time. We have a family that we have been working with for some time now and the kids said that they want to get baptised and set a date in like four weeks. They are a really cool family and they love it all and things are going good with them. Yesterday we had three investigatros in church and I was happy about that. But things are going good and they seem to be improving. We are teaching some wonderful people but they still lack a little bit of motivation.
For my comp and I things are going good. We are working hard and we have a lot of excitment about everything. Our ward is improving a ton and things are going good. They have a lot of excitement because in a month or so Elder Christopherson is coming. We keep working hard and we are doing good togeather. Im doing good and I just have to keep pushing through. Today was a very relaxing but fun day. I have spent today in centro with Rodrigo. He came up and we had some fun chilling around centro. We ate some pizza, with corn, and played pool and then we also took some tours of some cool places. But it was a good day. The weather here has been crazy, super hot and then cold and raining. But things are going good down here.
Joe I just want to tell you good luck with the mission and I honestly believe that youre going to learn a lot and your also going to love it as well. Youre going to have some tough days in that youre going to be tired but dont give up and push forward. I love you bro and I wish the best for you there in Ohio. Work hard and never look back.
Sounds like you guys are doing good and having fun. I love you guys and I wish the best for all for all fo you.

|Liver and noodles|
So things are going good and things seem to be progressing. We are working extreamly hard these last weeks and it has been crazy. We have a lot of the same investigators that seem to be improving quite a bit. But things are going good and I love working here. This week was tough working with some of the members but in all it was good. We are working with some of the same families from the last weeks. We found some new investigators and they seem pretty good. But things are going good. Yesterday was a sad day for us because we didnt have any investigators in church. But we have some big goals this week. Most of our investigators are going through some rough times but we promise that these things can help. So we will see what happens.
Well as for my companion and I things are going good. He is still a stud and loves to keep working. He still pushes me to become better and I like that and it honestly helps me to see what I can do. Im doing good and I still keep going no matter what. I just cant believe how fast things are going and that its too fast for me. But Im doing good. I worked with Elder A. this week and it went well.He is a good missionary . So the appartment staid the same and things seem to be even more relaxed here in the pension. My comp and Elder Roca keep goofing around and its hilarious most of the time. Today was really relaxed but also very crazy at the same time. This morning we climbed the hill right behind our house and it has a huge cross on top. It was really cool and you could see the city. It was a cool hike and we basically made our own trail. But we enjoyed it. This afternoon we went to centro to see the other missionaries and we had some amazing ice cream. I had rasberry, mantecol, dont know how to describe it, like a peanut butter crisp, and some amazing italian chocolate. So things are going good and they sould be getting better.
Well it looks like we had a birthday yesterday..... Happy birthday Cierra wow 15 your getting old.I just wish I was there to throw eggs and flour at you, haha. But it sounds like you guys are doing good and that your enjoying your time. Jayson good luck with soccer and mom and dad and jake have fun with work. I love you all and Im greatfull for all that you do.
