1st letter from Argentina

Well hello from Argentina!Things are going amazing down here and I love it. Well to start I guess is that my first area is called Perico and a city just outside of Jujuy and two hours north of Salta. But things are going good. Staying busy all day long. My comp is Elder Rose from California and he has been here for just over a year. He is an amazing elder. Things are going good just trying to get used to the humidity. It feels as soon as I step out the door my cloths stick and it is just wonderful. The food here is good. I have ate a lot of chicken and potatoes and then today I had beef and rice. but they usually they deep fry the meat. The people are amazing and super friendly. They are mostly of Bolivian decent and they do speak with the costallan. My first night in Perico I taught part of the first lesson and I think Ive tought almost every lesson. Things are good. This place is beautiful. It is soooo green. The mountains(hills are covered with trees and bushes. It looks like a jungle its pretty cool. Today for Pday we went and met a family from Jujuy and worked with the husband with bees. I will send the pics next week. But it was a blast, we got to handle them and take tons of pics with them. President Northcut is awesome and super friendly. We took pics and they will send them to you as soon as I give them your email. So far everything is good and wonderful. its interesting cause we share a big water tank with another family that lives below us and sometimes they will take most of it and the water will shut off at sometime around 1030 or so. well I dont know what else to say other than why did we buy two suits I haven't used them since Ive been down here. And its too hot to wear them on Sundays too. But other than that things are good. Oh and Dad you would love it down here everyone drinks coke, sprite, or Fanta. Its pretty funny. Oh and I know why bob barker always said to spay and neuter your pets. Dogs are everywhere down here. I love it though and on Sunday the bishop made me get up and give my testimony. I thought it was good and I can see an improvement in Spanish. The people are humble, sometimes, it is definitely a third world country. its good though. I love ya guys and love hearing from ya. Just remember trust in the Lord with all your heart and persevere to the end and the he will help. I love everything and I am grateful for the things back home. Cause at least we have carpet, everyone here has tile and they usually share a bed. Its sad but its all they have. Le amo con mi todo corazon,Elder Wade
