Well hello everyone and greetings from down south.
Wow can I say that its crazy how time flies when your busy doing good things. But things are going good and they seem to picking up. We continue to keep working and pushing hard to complete with the goals that president has set and may I say taht we are doing good. This week was another tough week but we did what we could and we did alright. We are still working with a lot of people to get them progressing towards baptism. We found some realy good investigators this week and they really want to get baptised. Then we are still working with some of our old investigators but things dont seem the same. We have a kid that is ready for baptism but we just have to teach him most of the stuff and get permision from his mom, but he is a good kid. Yesterday we had three investigators in church and they are super close to baptism. But things are going good and I am loving it down here.
As for my companion and I we are doing good and we are still working hard togeather. Honeslty my comp is such a stud and is amazing. I love working with him and he has so much energy to work and pushes me to have it too. We are doing good and Im loving it down here. Im doing good and I still try to push through the days. But things aregoing good for me. This week was really interesting because there is a guy here that is trying to convert us to the truth. It was interesting because he made us watch some anti-mormon movies and some other stuff like that. But other than that things have been normal down here, if you would call it normal. But things are going good and thats all that I can ask for. I super excited for General Confrence this weekend and I cant believe that its my last one here. But thats about it news down here.
Sounds like you guys are doing good and are loving the good old fall weather. The weather down here has been hot adn just seems to be getting even hotter. I love that you guys are doing good. Jayson good job on your games this week and keep it up. Dad and Jake I love the shirt ideas and it should go good. I love the new color of carrots, super weird. I love you all and I wish all the luck in the world for you guys.

Well things are going good and things seem to be getting better. This week was a tough week and things didnt go quite as planned, but it was still good. We worked hard but we still didnt complete with a couple of the goals, but oh well. This week we taught a lot of people who have a lot of potential for baptism and with some we confirmed when they are going to get baptised. So things are looking up but its going to happen with some time. We have a family that we have been working with for some time now and the kids said that they want to get baptised and set a date in like four weeks. They are a really cool family and they love it all and things are going good with them. Yesterday we had three investigatros in church and I was happy about that. But things are going good and they seem to be improving. We are teaching some wonderful people but they still lack a little bit of motivation.
For my comp and I things are going good. We are working hard and we have a lot of excitment about everything. Our ward is improving a ton and things are going good. They have a lot of excitement because in a month or so Elder Christopherson is coming. We keep working hard and we are doing good togeather. Im doing good and I just have to keep pushing through. Today was a very relaxing but fun day. I have spent today in centro with Rodrigo. He came up and we had some fun chilling around centro. We ate some pizza, with corn, and played pool and then we also took some tours of some cool places. But it was a good day. The weather here has been crazy, super hot and then cold and raining. But things are going good down here.
Joe I just want to tell you good luck with the mission and I honestly believe that youre going to learn a lot and your also going to love it as well. Youre going to have some tough days in that youre going to be tired but dont give up and push forward. I love you bro and I wish the best for you there in Ohio. Work hard and never look back.
Sounds like you guys are doing good and having fun. I love you guys and I wish the best for all for all fo you.

So things are going good and things seem to be progressing. We are working extreamly hard these last weeks and it has been crazy. We have a lot of the same investigators that seem to be improving quite a bit. But things are going good and I love working here. This week was tough working with some of the members but in all it was good. We are working with some of the same families from the last weeks. We found some new investigators and they seem pretty good. But things are going good. Yesterday was a sad day for us because we didnt have any investigators in church. But we have some big goals this week. Most of our investigators are going through some rough times but we promise that these things can help. So we will see what happens.
Well as for my companion and I things are going good. He is still a stud and loves to keep working. He still pushes me to become better and I like that and it honestly helps me to see what I can do. Im doing good and I still keep going no matter what. I just cant believe how fast things are going and that its too fast for me. But Im doing good. I worked with Elder A. this week and it went well.He is a good missionary . So the appartment staid the same and things seem to be even more relaxed here in the pension. My comp and Elder Roca keep goofing around and its hilarious most of the time. Today was really relaxed but also very crazy at the same time. This morning we climbed the hill right behind our house and it has a huge cross on top. It was really cool and you could see the city. It was a cool hike and we basically made our own trail. But we enjoyed it. This afternoon we went to centro to see the other missionaries and we had some amazing ice cream. I had rasberry, mantecol, dont know how to describe it, like a peanut butter crisp, and some amazing italian chocolate. So things are going good and they sould be getting better.
Well it looks like we had a birthday yesterday..... Happy birthday Cierra wow 15 your getting old.I just wish I was there to throw eggs and flour at you, haha. But it sounds like you guys are doing good and that your enjoying your time. Jayson good luck with soccer and mom and dad and jake have fun with work. I love you all and Im greatfull for all that you do.

Well hello and greetings everyone from good old argentina.
Well I hope that your guys weeks are good and that your having fun. Things here are going good. This week was a tough week but it was very helpful for me to see what I can do to get better. We did well this week but it could have been betterbut at least we worked hard and got some things done. It was a crazy week for being the last week of the transfer and with stake confrence things just got thrown around. We are still working with some families that we have been and we found quite a bit more as well. We found a family that there son got baptised and served a mission and now lives in the states for more than 14 years. They are really cool and they like to listen. We have a couple more that are progressing towards baptism but they lack a little bit more. We have one that is really really close to being baptised in the coming weeks. He just needs to find his desear and follow it. But things are going good for us down here and we keep working hard, like usual. Yesterday we only had two investigators in church and they are two kids that we are teaching. They liked it and they want to go more. It was a really good meeting yesterday and they want to continue to progress so they want to do anything. Apparently in November Elder D. Todd Christopherson is coming down to jujuy to see how the work is going so everyone wants to make a good appearnce for him so we have our work cut out for us.
Maybe you are wondering what happened to my comp and I this transfer. So to let you guys know we are both staying here for anouther transfer. Im excited to be with him for one more, because we have a lot set up for this month and I really wanted to stay with him for one more. He is a good kid and loves working and Im glad to be his comp for one more. But we are doing good and Im doing good. Im doing good and I keep working hard. Im still district leader and Im excited to help my district for one more time. Its weird to know that I might actually end my mission here in Jujuy, I dont mind but its weird to know that its right there in front of me. But for now I just have to worry about whats going on at the moment and that the end will come in time. Honestly time is going by so fast and I almost dont like it and I wish it would go a bit slower. Its weird seeing everyone I know going home and knowing that its going to be me in a little bit, but oh well. This week was an interesting week and it was strange. Yesterday we got chased by a drunk guy for about five minutes and it was super weird and freaky. He kept yelling Gringo, Gringo and asked for money. But we got rid of him and went home a different way. But everything is cool know. Today was and continues to be interesting. We got a call from the zone leaders at five in the morning asking if we could go over to thier pension and stay with one of them. So we got over there about six but the front gate was broken shut so we couldnt get in the appartment. We finally got it open around seven thirty and I went directly over to the terminal and my comp stayed there with him. So Ive been running around town with Elder Silva and Elder Johnson all day and its been quite the ride. We got togeather with the other zone leaders and played some pool, air hockey and fusball. So ya thats it for us here at the moment. Sorry for writting so early.
Well I hope that you all are doing ok and that youre enjoying school and work. Jayson I loved the video of you and your amazing smile, keep working on your camara skills. I wish the best for you all and I wish you a happy september.
