Wow anouther week has now gone by and it seems to be going faster.
Well things here are going good and are slowly improving. Well this week has been pretty crazy and hectic. It was a rough start for the week and things were really hard to get, but we got most of them. My comp and I have been working hard and we have been getting used to each other. This week was anouther hard week to find new people to teach. But we are making plans to make improvements and to improve the area. We have a couple people that are improving and the only thing that they lack is to come to chruch. One of the members said this week that she has been praying to see people in church. And we finally had someone come, and we werent expecting them. It was a teacher and said that his son wants to learn more. So we went over and taught his son after lunch. It was a good lesson and he even accepted a baptismal date!! So that was basically the highlight of the week. I just hope and pray that this week gets even better.
Well as for my comp and I we are doing good. I can see an improvement in the way my comp acts and works. Im super happy to be with him and to help him improve and make a progress in his mission. He said that he hasnt felt this comfortable working since his trainer. So Im glad to have made that impact on him. And about me things are going good. My knee hasnt been giving me to many problems and I feel better. This whole week I was basically sick but today I feel ten times better. I finally have my voice back but I have a cough, but I guess thats a good thing. I guess a crazy thing that happend is that every sunday I get attacked by the same dog everyweek. Its a members dog and its a big young Rottweiler, but it just wants to play. But things are going good and should be getting better. Today was a good relaxing day. This morning my comp and I we went to the offices and picked up some things, I still havent gotten you package. But after that we went to Mcdonalds and ate some good old hamburgers. I honestly got stuffed, but it was all good. The only choice of drink that they have is Coke so thats what I had, thought you would like it dad. But things are going good down here and Im loving it up.
Im glad to see that everyone is doing good and is enjoying thier time. Jake congrats on getting the job and good luck with that, at least its not fast food. Mom I forgot but happy Birthday!!! Wow 42!!! crazy how fast time flies. I love you all and Im glad that you all had fun with Jakes graduation and everything. Good luck everyone!!!

Well hello and wow anouther week in the books here in Salta.
Honestly things havent been normal at all this week and it was really weird. This last week was a really tough week and we worked harder than ever to get stuff done, but we did. We taught a lot of people and we found quite a bit of people and some even accepted baptismal dates,yay!!! But sadly none of them came to church yesterday, "too cold." But it was a good week and quite rewarding if I say so myself. We are still working with some families that we found a couple weeks ago. We have a couple that are moving towards baptism but very slowly,but I guess everything has its time in the mission. But thats about it for this last week.
Well with the mission changing, there have also been some changes between elder Grzelak and I... emergency transfers. Well apparenty there were some nessary changes and my comp and I were effected by them. I am now with Elder Stevenson from California, Riverside. They told us this morning about the transfers and they told Grzelak that he had to pack everything and leave today as soon as possible. So this moring was super crazy and full of crazy stuff. But we are going to see what happens the rest of this transfer. Im going to miss Grzelak, him and I got a long amazingly and we were doing stuff that hasnt been done here in Santa Ana in almost a year, so he is going to be missed. We had our first district meeting only as a district and we also celebrated Elder Ward´s birthday, and elder Luthi made the cake, chocolate with dulce de leche in between and a banana cake on top with frosting, super goood! But things are going good just crazy with all the changes and everything. The ward is doing good and we are planning to do an activity in the coming month, because honestly the ward needs it, unity. Oh ya today we ordered a pizza and they said that it would come in fourty minutes and it ended up coming about an hour and a half later, I was frustrated. But thats about it for us here in Santa Ana.
Sounds like you guys have your hands full with everything. I love you guys and I wish the best for you all. Jake push yourself hard this last week, dont get senioritis. Jayson take care of your arm. Good luck with everything and I cant believe that this week I hit 18 months, crazy!!!
Les amo y suerte con todo,
