Buenas y Feliz Año Nuevo!!!‏

Well hello everybody!
Well it was sure great talking with you guys even if it was just for a little bit. But I loved it. Well things are going good here and should be interesting this week. Well yesterday in church we had two investigators come and they said that they loved so we were happy to see them. We have been working with them for a while and it was great progressing in thier part for them to come to chruch. But it was good and then we spent most of the night with my comp saying goodbye to everyone. It was tuff for him to say goodbye but its good for him. And he will get used to it. other than that things are going good and this week should be really interesting.
Well as for me right now Im doing good. This morning we got up and I took my comp to the terminal at 7:30 and waited with the zone leaders untill the other elders came from the pension. Then we got Elder Ward´s new comp, Elder Araya from Chile. Then we went back to the pension and then went shopping and then just chilled until about now. But ya Im doing good and just waiting to get some news about my comp. From what I heard from Elder Michealson, the secretary, they wont leave Salta until about 3-3:30 and then its about seven hours so I wont probably get him until tuesday night or wendsday morning. So ya just playing the good old waiting game. So for tonight and tomorrow I will be working with the other elders. But ya just looking forward to see what happens.
Well it was sure great to hear from you all and to hear how you are all. Sounds like you guys are great and having fun and enjoying the good old cold and snow. I wish we had snow, its about 120 right now and Im sweating like crazy. Well like you guys said I dont have to much to say since we talked the other day. And mom I would also like some socks also thanks! But I love you all and I miss you and I cant believe that I only have one more call and thats in four months. Thanks for everything.

Les amo,

Well hello everybody and Feliz Navidad!!!

Well I honestly cant believe that this time is finally here. Its gone by way to fast for me. Well this week was good but not good in the same way. This week was by far one of my hardest weeks here. It started out good and then went completly bad. We only completed with one of the goals and the rest we didnt even come close. We only had three new investigators for the week. We were knocking basically all week and didnt get a single thing. All the people that we found said that they didnt want to listen and shut the door in our faces. But we are hoping that this week will be ten times better. But we have some people that are somewhat progressing and moving to baptism but it doesnt look like we are going to have any this transfer. All the people that we are teaching have a hard time coming to church but always have friends of members that always come, whats the deal here. But its going good and things should be getting better this week.

Well other than that things are going good for me and my comp. Elder Roca is doing good and is learnig alot, I guess the thing now that he does that bothers me is that he is always complaining about everything. But I just try to ignore it and just work. But he is doing good. As for me I could be better but theres not much I can do. My knee is about the same and doesnt seem to be getting bettter or worse. Other than that things are good. Like I said before things havent been so good. Now I know how you felt dad when we made fun of you being bald. I was walking in the street and there were a bunch of people and they started calling be baldy and then just started laughing, so I know how you feel now. But I dont care anymore its just a thing that I have here. Last friday we had zone confrence and it was awesome. It was good to see president and the Hermana. At the end we had a Christmas presentation and it was awesome. President was reading parts from the bible and there were some of the elders acting it out. So it was special and you could really feel the spirit during it. So that was about the only good thing that happend. But eveything is going good here and should be getting better. I dont know what we are going to do for christmas, other than call. So I let you know next week.

Well it sounds like everything is going good for you guys up there and that you are enjoying the cold. Oh this week we got to about 110 degrees this last week and it was hot. I wish we had snow, I miss it. But it sounds like you guys are fine, other than Jakes chin, thats sucks sorry bro. And Grandma Wade I did get your email, thanks a ton. I love you guys and Im excited to talk with you guys this week. Best wishes.

Les amo,

Wow estamos en Diciembre‏

Well hello family and friends.

Well things were pretty crazy this week. But it was a good week. Elder
Roca and I worked hard this week to complete the goals and we
comlpeted with most of them. But we did it. So we started to teach a
bunch of young kids that are getting involved with everything and they
say that they want to listen to the lessons so we are happy and we are
getting a lot of help from the members to teach with us. So things are
going good. I dont know if we are going to have a baptism this
transfer but we are trying hard to get one. Just the thing is nobody
wants to come to church. So ya we are working with that. But things
are looking up and should be getting better.

Well as for me and my comp we are doing good. Elder Roca is getting
better but is starting to complain about the heat, so thats kinda
bugging me but I think he´ll get used to it in time. But he is doing
good. Well the big thing this week was my knee. So I finally got my
results and nothing was really bad just a few things with my miniscus,
but the doctor says that all I have to do is push through it. So thats
what Im doing. Dont worry on sending anouther brace I bought one and I
dont like the thing, it bugs me and it gets really uncomfortable. But
oh well. But if it gets worse they say that I can get a shot that will
take the pain for about a month, so we will see what happens. But
things are going good and I cant believe that time is going by so
fast. But its going good.

Well it sounds like you guys are doing good and enjoying the cold
weather. I wish it would be a little cooler because its getting
hotter. But sounds like you guys are enjoying the seasons and
everything that comes with it. I miss you guys but I know that Im here
for a reason. I love you guys and I wish the best for all of you.

Les amo,
Elder Jarret Wade

Wow Time flies by!!‏

Well hello family.

Well hello everyone and I cant believe that we are almost in Dicember, it goes by way to fast. I honestly cant believe that two weeks have gone by here in Santiago. But things are going good. This last week we worked hard and completed all of the goals that we had set, so I was happy. In church was a little bit different but it was good. We had four kids that we didnt know show up for church and we found out that they are friends of two member kids, so that was really nice. Then all this week we were working hard but most of the appointments that we had fell through but we somehow improvised and did well. So it was a good week this last week. We have a couple people that are slowly improving and I like that. Last night we taught a lady and we talked and read 3 nephi 11 with her and she loved it and then we left The Testaments with her to watch with her husband, I just hope everything goes good with them. But everything is going good and Im slowly getting the hang of everything.

Well as for me and my comp we are doing good. Everday we learn from each other and we are doing good. I can see him improve everyday and how he gets more confidence when he talks. But he is doing good. As for me things could be better. I went to the doctor wendsday and he was playing with my knee and he moved it a certain way and boy did it hurt, and after I reacted he told me that I most likely had a ligament tair and was working on my miniscus, so I wasnt happy after that. Then I had an appointment thursday for a MRI and then when I was there they told me that they didnt accept my card so I had to come back the next day and do it. So I went back and paid for the MRI and while I was waiting the doctor came out and told me that they couldnt do it because the Air conditioning broke so I arrainged for anouther time for saturday. Finaly on saturday I did the MRI but they told me that I wouldnt have the results until tuesday night. So tomorrow I will find out what has happend with by knee. So most of this week I have been frustrated with everything. But other than that things are going good. This morning we didnt do a whole lot we went shopping then we cleaned the pension. then Elder Brisolara and I got bored and built a golf course in the pension, it was fun and I ended up winning. But other than things are going good and time is going fast.

Well it sounds like you guys had a great thanksgiving and did a lot of fun things. Dad sounds like your getting your time on the radio and having fun. I love you guys and I love getting you letters and reading how you are. Thanks for all of the support. Good luck with everything.

Les amo,

Elder Jarret Wade
