Wow, last week of the transfer. Only one left. One more transfer, one more general conference, one more fast Sunday, one more chance to do this right.... Once again we didn't have anyone in church. UGHHHHHH! these people drive me insane sometimes. They promise, promise, promise that they'll go, and they don't show up. SO FRUSTRATING! But, luckily, this weekend is general conference, so we'll have a lot of people that go to see it. This Saturday we went to the temple with 25 de Mayo. It turned out really well, and everyone that went (especially the converts and investigators) really liked it. They all said that they noticed a different spirit. To get to the temple in Buenos Aries, we have to travel 2 and a half hours in a van. Ha, and you all complain about having to go 40 minutes to mesa!!! Now, we'll have a temple like 5 minutes away! That's so awesome. Well, I'm glad everyone's doing well and i hope everyone has a great week. I love you all!

I just about fell out of my seat when i saw the ticket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Ugh this is insane. Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. That is a really, really good question. I actually don't know how to respond to that... Hmm. I think at first it would be cool to just invite family and extended family. friends can be at the house after president weathersby releases me. Yeah. That'll be good, i think. Well, looks like everyones doing well at home. Any big news besides that bear turned one? Haha. Holy cow emma went to prom?????? Shes getting old... We all are! O_o  Well this week was full of its share of challenges just like any other. Lately, we haven't been able to get people to come to church. Its frustrating me a ton. I've got like 8 more chances to do it. Oh, and i haven't tried my account yet. OH!!!!!!!!! Do you remember the Rose family that used to live in our ward? or maybe they still do. I cant remember. But anyways, one of our members was showing us pics of her baptism, and she said, "This is elder Rose." I looked closer at his face, and realized that it was totally him!!!! Ya know, brother Rose, who worked on movies and playes guitar. He served in SALADILLO!!! You have to get in contact with him! His converts want to hear from him!!! Well, imma send a bunch of pics. Talk to y'all later!

The eggs from one of the member families. They got it from some farm I think. But anywaysss. hows life at home? Everyones STILL sick? Woww must be a pretty nasty bug. Yes, I have my debit card, and yes i would like to have a little extra cash, for souvenirs and stuff (; So if you could figure that out, thatd be great. Things are going okay here. Frustrating as ever, trying to get people to come to church. Its the same story as always, but I'm just getting tired. I've been doing this for a longggg timeee. All I want to do is end my mission well. I hope God will help me do that. Time's FLYING! Other than that, everythings well here. The weather is gorgeous, fall starts the 21st of march. Ha so that means it'll be super hot again when i get back. But, we have AIR CONDITIONING!!!! =D I've also been practicing my Portuguese with those discs you sent me. I've basically got the pronunciation down, i just need to learn more grammar and vocab. I'm thinking about doing Rosetta stone or something when i get back to learn it better. Well, I'm gonna send a ton of pictures. I love y'all!

So, here we are at the beginning of another of the few weeks i have left. In my email this morning, i had to fill out a paper describing the details of my flight home. Man......... that sure felt like a bag of bricks falling on me when i saw that in my inbox! It just makes it seems all the more real... time is short, short, short. And here I am, still trying to make the most out of it that I can. This week was pretty good for us. We found a lot of people, but it looks like most of them aren't going to be able to progress very well. Church this Sunday was.... weird. First off, it was raining like crazy the hour it was supposed to start. So, not a SINGLE person showed up until 11:15!!! By that time, there were only 45 minutes left of church. Including us four missionaries, there were only NINE people in church!!! It was so crazy. And my companion was sick Saturday so we couldn't work all day. Hopefully this week will be better than the last. I've only got a few of them left... Have a good week! I love you all!
