Hola and hey!

Dear Family and Friends,

Alright so I want to give you a picture of some of the things that are happening in my mission. So right now my companion is Elder Kyle Evans from Provo and he is a really funny and crazy kid. He has a love for the Gospel and is a really sincere person. I'm very grateful that he is my companion right now! There have been cool a lot of things happening in the town where I live. Apart from the elections which I already told you all about there have been a lot of people moving to new neighborhoods. Many of the people who lived in "villas" or more like ghetto homes were given new houses by the government, and when they moved out people would come and destroy the old house and steal all the bricks and whatever was salvagable. Oh good old socialism huh? :) The whole medical issue is big here to because it takes an eternity to get a specialist of someone that is familiar with the sickness the people have. I have never in my life seen bigger lines for hospitals. They have to go to various doctors and other medical professionals for a really short visit until they can actually find out what the problem is. It's a pretty sad and messed up medical system here.

People keep telling us that the U.S. economy is doing bad but everytime I look at the dollar it keep rising while the peso goes down... Who knows whats going on. We had the visit of President Auidikaitis this week of the Seventy and first counselor of the area seventy in Sur AMerica Sur. He came and had a capacitation for the leaders and then for the zones in general. He spoke very frankly and powerfully. It sure opened up my vision and made me appreciate the principal of revelation and how the Lord calls his servants personally. It was amazing.

We have been eating a lot of noodles and pasta lately, but today to celebrate Halloween we are making tacos and cinammon rolls at a members house who is from the States so we are excited for that!! Argentine food is nothing like Mexican or anything like like just in case anyone was wondering. They don磘 like spice at all so things are a little more bladn, but this week at a members house we had the opportunity to make "quis" which are really good! I will definitely make some when I get home. It is like pasta made out of potatoes.

Everyone is progressing well and it was another fantastic week! I hope you are all doing well I love you all!
