Well hello and greetings from good old Argentina. Well things are going good down here and we are working hard as usual. The weather down here is good and you can tell that we are in fall and slowly moving towards winter. This week was good but not great. We didnt finish all of our goals for the week but we did get most of them. Yesterday we had 5 investigators show up to church and they werent the ones that we were expecting, so that was nice. It was cool cause we are teaching a family that is very catholic and the showed up to church and loved it. And the daughter has a friend in the church already so thats nice. But we havent found a whole lot of `peòple this week and are teaching most of the same people. But things are going good and the investigators are slowly progressing. Well some great news.... Rodrigo finally told his mom that he was baptised yesterday!!!! and she accepted it. So now we can take things a little farther now. So we were happy about that and we are going to teach one of his gypsie friends tonight. Oh ya gypsies are everywhere down here and they are interesting. They dont know how to read, write and other stuff cause they dont go to school and they are always trying to steal your money, by any means posible. But ya things are good here for work. And we hope to have some baptisms this transfer. But thats that.
Well some news about me and our life down here. Well first the llama. Llama tastes pretty good and is quite healthy for you. The meat is lean and has a different taste and there is not a whole lot of fat on it. But it wasnt bad. that night we ate both beef and llama, so we could tell the taste and there is a huge difference in it. But dont worry I wont come home and kill the llamas. The food down here is good and Ive gotten used to it, and its good sometimes and other times you wonder what the heck you just ate but you dont ask. But its good, I love it. I got a little sick this and wasnt feeling to hot but still worked. I wasnt able to eat a whole lot and just felt an awfull ache in my stomach, but it has mostly passed so thats good. But things are going good and we are working hard. The other elders are awesome and we are always goofing around in the pinch at night. And its nice too cause we have some of the same tastes in stuff and always telling stories.
So for calling. I have calling cards that are for international and I think it would be more if you called me cause Perico is on a totally different program then anything else. So we will see. I think we are going to call a couple days before to set a time up with you guys so we know when to call. Be ready. So if I cant call or something we will figure something out. But it sounds like you guys have your hands full with all sorts of stuff. Dad congrats on the pups and have fun with them. And tell tiki not to eat his foot thats bad for him. Jake have fun at the dance with kylie<329.gif>. Mom have fun with your paper and Im sure that you will do fine. Tell Joe congrats on the baby. I love you all and I look forward to calling and talking with you. I love reading what you have to say about everything and Im sure that there is more to say but not enough time. I love you all very much.
