Winter, what!!! I dont like being cold.‏

, Elder Stevenson(I think) , Rodrigo and Jarret
Well greetings my family and friends!!!

Wow I honestly cant beleive that its almost July, just this week. Time just keeps on going by but its going good for me. This week was a good week and full of crazy stuff to do. It felt like it was a longer week but it felt like it went by fast as well. It was a full week full of events and meetings. For work it was a harder week than usual, but still good. We found quite a few people this week that seem that they have desears to learn more about the gospel. The hard thing was getting our members to start to work with us a little bit more. Im basically tired of our ward mission leader, he is a good kid in all but lacks quite a few things. He is basically wasting our time but I guess we need to find more to work with but it would be nice to have a good ward mission leader. We worked a lot and got some success. Yesterday in church we had one kid that is investigating there. He is most likely our closest baptism in this area. But things are going good and will keep getting better.

Well as for us we are doing good. My comp is doing good and keeps improving in his work ethic. This week we had divisions with the zone leaders which was fun. I went to the zone leaders area to work with Elder Barraza. It was a fun time and I learned a lot from him on what I can do here to help my area. Im doing good but my knee is starting to give some more problems, especially with the cold. But things are going good for me. Yesterday I was sick for a little bit and I had no energy to work and to do anything, but I worked. The weather keeps getting colder here and it might snow in the comming days, who knows. We had our final confrence with President and Hermana Northcutt. It was a really good one and it was kind of sad that it was thier last. President talked a bit and shared some personal experiences on how God had awnsered his prayers. It was really good and we took a lot of pics with them, so I will send them. Today was a good day for me because I got to see Rodrigo. It was a good time with him and we talked a ton. Elder Dibb and his comp were with us and we did some fun stuff. We went and boweld with him and he loved and didnt do so bad. It was a good time with and I loved seeing him. I was happy this week because as a district week completed with two of the goals, so we are probressing and Im supper happy. So that was basically our week for you.

I love you guys and Im happy for everything that you do for me. Sounds like you guys are doing good and are enjoying your summer weather as we slowly get colder. I love you and I wish the best for you.

Les amo,

Es Junio!! Where did the time go!!!‏

Well hello and greetings my friends and family from the good old Argentina!

Hello everyone and wow its June. I cant believe that we are now into June and that the time is just going by fast. But things are going good for us down here in Santa Ana. Well lets start with the news about the area.... things are going good, but lack a lot until its going to be strong. But things are now going into place and we are seeing a difference. We have some things going for us here in our area but its going to be awhile until we have a baptism. Today I talked with President and he said that our area is hard and that the work we are doing is great. And that we are not going to see most of the results while we are here but in the future if we leave it good this area is going to be a really strong area. So that gave me some energy to keep working and pushing along. Its tough here but its not impossible for us to complete. Yesterday we didnt have any investigator in church and very little members as well. We still have a little bit of our investigators that are progresing, but not as fast as we would want. Apparently everyone has thier own time here, so Im learning patience with everyone. But things are going good and we are starting to focus a little bit in an area that is really poor and humble, so I hope that we get some success there. The thing is sometimes is that the people dont want to change and or they are really lazy, but they are good people.

And now for some news on us. We are doing good and my comp and I continue to get along and we learn more from each other each day. Elder Stevenson is a good kid and has tons of energy to do stuff. Im still trying to be an example to him and show him how things are done. Im starting to give him a bit more control with stuff, just to make him feel comfortable and willing to work. And as for me things are going good here. These week has just been crazy with a ton of stuff going on. We are still planning the activity and we got lucky because there are two holidays that we can choose from to do the activity. But the hard part is planning on what we are going to do. But we have several ideas that we are thinking about. This week I did divisions with Elder Luthi and we got quite a bit of stuff done, but in his area. My knee has been giving me some problems this week. I dont know if its because the change in the weather but it has been bugging me. But its not too bad to keep me from working. The weather here has been nice and seems a lot like fall. But things are going good and should be getting better. I honestly cant believe that its now June and that May is now over. Time just seems to be going fast here and its going faster. We have transfers this comming week but I dont believe that we will change. But thats about it for us here in Santa Ana.

Sounds like you guys are doing good and are enjoying your nice summer weather, lucky. Good luck with everything. And tell uncle dan that I will be praying for him. I love you guys and I wish the best of luck for all of you!!

Les amo,
