one of my favorite drinks called Pritty Limon, almost kinda like Mountain Dew, with a sandwich called a Lomito, it has eggs, ham, beef, tomate, lettuce, mustard, and mayo. So its like a heart attack in a sandwich.

Jarret and Rodrigo
Well greetings from good old Tucuman!

Well I honestly cant believe how fast time is going. And before we know it its october, crazy huh? Well things are good and work was good this week. We worked pretty hard this week and got a lot of things done. As for teaching some of the people we had was alright. The family that the mom is the only member we havent had the chance to teach them this last week. We went by and they werent there and then we came back about an hour later and still werent there, so we havent seem them at all this week. And the sister of the member, Marisol, is going good. She is reading more of the Book of Mormon and loves the lessions and the only thing keeping her from gettign bettter is going to church. She wants to but just lacks a bit of motivation, but we are going to work on that to get her to come to the confrence. Other than that things are going good. We have a guy that we found a while back. His name is Jesus and he came to church yesterday. We have been teaching him off and on for a while and then we challenged him to come to church and he came on his own so that was pretty awesome. So yesterday we had four investigators in church. Then one that we just started teaching kinda is in Lules, another area wich has its own branch. His name is Franco and is a friend of one of the members and seems to like going to chruch. So things are going good and the member that we have waiting to go on his mission still doesnt have his call and has been waiting for about two months now. So he should be getting it I hope.

Well other than this things are going good here in Manantial. Well this week is the last week of the transfer which means mostlikly my comp is out of here and I stay, but you never know what happens. Well some news from today is that I saw Rodrigo!! He came down this morning to chill with Elder Rose, Donaldson, me and our comps. It was pretty cool. We cooked tacos at the church in the other area and then chilled and talked about some cool things. It was so nice to talk to him and just to see how he was. I have honestly missed the guy and I was so happy to see him. He gave me a couple of gifts and we sat and talked. So that was cool and I will try to send some pics of us. Well we had the zone confrence this week and as usual it was good. President talked about obedience and then shared some ideas that we can use to help our investigators pray and make better commitments. So it was good. Then we went by the new pension to see if it was ready to move in. And when we went over it was dirty, because they were fixing a couple of things and were painting the walls so everything was dirty. But I think we are going to move in this week. So ya we got some things to do this week before everything comes to an end. But things are going good and should be better this week. We are going to do some divisions with the Elders in Prospero Mena and then go to confrence this weekend. Im excited to watch confrence. We have to go to the stake center and there they have a room for the missionaries that speak english so I get to watch it in both if I want. But Im excited. Well the weather is different as always. This last week we had a lot of cloud coverage and then some rain so everything was wet. And then today it was hot hot hot and its only going to get hotter. But things are going good and I love it here.

Well sounds like you guys are going good and congrates on the baby blessing Ben and Robyn. Dad the rooms look awesome and that you guys did a good job on them, and good luck with the other job. Mom sounds like you had fun in Boise and that things should be getting better. Jake keep running hard and keep improving. Jayson thanks for the testimony and I hope that you serve also. I love you guys and I love reading what you say. Good luck with everything this week and I will always keep you informed. Love ya all.

Te amo y un abrazo grandisimo,

Hola y 10 meses!!!!‏

Well hello family and friends.

Well I cant believe how fast time flies by. Well things keep on going here in Argentina. But everything is good and Im loving it. The work this week could have better but we made due. Well this was good and full of surpirses. We are finding more people. Last week we found a family where the mom is the only member and hasnt gone to church for years but we started teaching most of the family. They seem to be going good and also they have thier problems. But they seem to be progressing little by little. The father seems to be the most interested, which is a little bit different because most of the fathers are tradicional. But they are good. Then we are teaching the sister of a member. She was actually really surprising. This week we went by to see if she read the part we marked, not only did she read the part but started reading from the begining and is in second nephi. So she is going good and has been to two different baptisms and she loves them. Other than that most of our investigators are ok but could be better. But the hardest thing was seeing one investigator in church. Its been the same for two weeks and Im tired of it. But its the hardest thing to get them to do. But things are going good and should be getting better in the coming week. As for the kid in our ward that is waiting on his call, is still waiting. But there will be two that will be serving from the ward and the other is going to La Paz Bolivia.

Well as for us this week was good. Well this week was a week full of surprises. Well Rivera and I are still working togeather and we teach without problems now so thats good for us. Well on monday I went and bought me a gift. I got a real argentina jersey, so thanks for the gift. Well as for the new pension, we are still working on things. We will know what happens by wendsday. Well for most of this week we have been without power. They shut off the power on friday and we didnt find out till friday night and then we went to go pay on saturday and the place was closed so we had to wait until today to pay. So we should have power by now. But ya that was a fun experience. Then on saturday we did divisions with the elders in Tafi viejo. And I was with Elder Silva most of the day. He is a cool kid. he is from west jordan and his mom is from venezuela and his dad is from el salvador, I think. But we had fun and did some good work. Then that night we went to Tafi to get my comp and we didnt get back to manantial hasta, forgot the word, a little past midnight. So it was late and we had to get up early to get ready for chruch. Then at church I had to give a talk and it went well. I talked about the responsiblity of the members in fellowshipping investigators and new members. And a lot of people said they liked it so I was happy. But this week was good and I just cant believe how fast its going.

But it sounds like you guys are doing good and I enjoy reading whats going on in your lifes. Well I forgot that the weather down here is getting warm and we are now officialy in spring and they tell me that it gets hotter like 120 so Im not happy about that. Jake good luck with running and run hard, you too Maria. Dad I hope everything was good with the docter. And mom thanks for the news on the stake presidency. I love you guys and I wish you luck in all the things you do.

Te amo,

Elder Rose with his "Kids"
Elder Foster and Jarret's zone

Sept 13

Well hello family!

Well I cant believe how fast time flies by here. Im trying to think of the things I was doing a year ago and it doesnt feel like it was that long ago. Well things went good this week. First of all we had our baptism this week and it was awesome. The spirit was so strong during that time. His name is Pablo J... and he is such a stud. During the service he was crying just a little bit. But he was way excited to be baptised. And then last night we were talking with him and he is thinking about serving a mission so we will see what he wants to do. but that was such an awesome experience. Then on thursday we had a zone confrence with three two other zones. And Elder Foster of the seventy and he talked to us about Ward council and how we can help improve things. He kind of droped it hard on the people here. He said that people think that things from the states dont apply to them down here, but he said that the church is the same everywhere. But it was a good time to see people I havent seen for awhile. For work it has been going pretty good. Last night we found a family where the mom is less active and no one else is members and she has five kids and her husband that are interested. So it will be interesting to see what happens with them. Then a couple of our investigators that are improving just a little bit are strugguling so I hope we can improve that. But things are going good.

As for us things are going good. The baptism help get us excited for more things to come and things are going good. Well the weather is hot and seems to be getting hotter. We hit around the 90s this week and there is humidity so its just plain uncomfortable to work but we get through it. Well as for the new house we found one and we are just waiting for the people in the office to talk with the owner and we might be moving this week, but I´ll let you know what happens. But things are going good. Well I found out this last week that "my brother" elder rose´s last kid has family from rexburg and you wont believe who they are. Brian Larsen is his uncle so that meens that his grandparents are the Frankmens. When I was talking with him it was wierd to here that. His name is Elder Graham. He is a cool kid. Oh I forgot to tell you that Elder Foster is from Rigby, so that was cool and I talked with him about home and what you guys do. So thats cool. Other than that things are the same. But this means that we only have two weeks left of the transfer. So we will know who is gone by general conference. But things are going good and Im fine.

Well I always love hearing from you guys cause I learn new things each time. It sounds like you guys are doing good and enjoying yourselfes. Well Cierra happy late birthday and I cant believe that your 14, thats wierd. And Jake good luck with that ankle get it better then you can kick butt. Dad sounds like you have your hands full with everything I wish you luck with everything. Mom and Jayson have fun in school. I love you guys and Im gratefull to have you as my family. Good luck with everything you do.

Te amo y te extraño

September 6th Letter

Well hello family and boy does time fly.

Well I honoslty cant believe that its september and that its just going by fast. Well this week was pretty good and we got a lot of the things done. So we should have a baptism this saturday. Pablo!!! So he is pretty excited for it and his girlfriend, who is a member has really been helping him progress. So it has been fairly good with him and I just hope that he wont have any problems this week, but its the week of and there is usually problems but we will see. As for the others they are going good. Victor is now proressing more and is more involved with more of the youth so thats always good. And we have anouther Cyntia she came to church yesterday and liked it and enjoyes the lessons, but with here we need to talk with here parents, which is always the hardest part. But its going good and we are continuing to find people and having people progress. And we had three people in the church yesterday and if they come consitently they will progress even more. But things are going good. I just wish they could go better, but thats the life.

As for me and me comp we are doing good and still working togeather. This week was good and as usual we enjoyed it. This week we watched a new movie for missionaries called The District 2 and it was about how we can improve things in the areas and shows how other missionaries are working. It was good and to learn some things that maybe me as a missionary can improve and continue to work on. But it was nice. Then on tuesday we did divisions with the zone leaders and I was with Elder Lockheart. It was a blast to work with him. He is from San Diego and he went to BYU-I so we talked about rexburg and what we like there. So it was fun but I also learned many things that I can use while working. I love going on divisions with the zone leaders because they seem to know a lot and things that we can use to improve. But its going good for me down here. Well my spanish keeps improving and I keep learning different tricks I can use. But its going good, there are times where I feel frustrated but I just learn to deal with it and do my best. But I love it here and the people are amazing and the members are nice and willing to help. But for me its going good. The food is treating me good once and a while. My favorite fruit down here would be the manderin oranges and the mangos are recently growing so in a little bit we are going to have mangos. But I love it down here.

Well it sounds like you all are doing good and loving the three day weekend. Dad I hope that finding wood was fun and that you enjoyed your time. And I think mom got me a brace but talk with her. Mom have fun with school and keeping up with jake and jayson. Jake good luck with the ankle and a fact of me is that I never threw up during or after a race, so feel special. Jodi and Maria have fun up in Alaska and Maria keep running sounds like your doing awesome and your times are good, keep it up. I love you guys and I look forward to reading and writting you guys. Te amo tanto

Te amo y tengas suerte,

Elder Jarret Wade
