So talking about Connelly´s mission call, me and Skirvin were both guessing Chile also...and we are definitely praying for it, but wherever he goes is gonna be so cool!!! I am excited to write him when he is on his mission and send him stuff! So this week was pretty good. We went to Saenz Peña for the conferencia de distrito. It was super great! The messages were powerful and the spirit was really there. I got to see a few members from Ensanche Sur and then we stayed the night at another hermana's apartment. It was awesome too! We ate pancakes and then we went to the session. The branch president brought a few of my converts and I talked to hna Guevara. She had a lot to tell me. Also she told me a few really sad stories about some other converts but it's alright, everybody has their libre albedrio. We stayed last night in las breñas and we have spent the whole pday with two other companionships. It has been soo fun! We will be staying here tonight again and tomorrow we will get home. And next Monday we are going to Resistencia for an all mission conference! Then we will be in las breñas again. so next week i will write you Tuesday. So how is Connelly? Is he working or just studying for the mission? haha or sleeping and xboxing it up? I can´t tell you all how blessed i feel to be in the mission and how happy i am that i have you all as a family. I love you all so much and i am so excited to see you :) 

Well i should probably get going, but now that connelly isn´t busy with school, you should make him write me more! I literally missed a year of his life so i am a little curious. Tell mom and Austi that they are very loved and well i miss you all tons. Also do you all want Argentina soccer jerseys? The first mundial game happened yesterday and it sounded like Argentina won so if you want there are a ton of jerseys around. I am a little nervous on what to get you all because i have been gone a while and i am not sure if i should bring back a ton of stuff or if i should be more moderate...let me know, but hey i love you all and i will write next week.

I will get some pictures your way in a second. I love you all.

Oh my gosh your email just made me so happy my eyes are all watery!!!!! Austianna is such a good sister!!!! (She drove up to Oroville after work on Friday for Connelly's graduation.) I am impressed and dang i am so glad everyone could be there for Connelly on his special day and of course for mom´s birthday!!! Me and my companion had a moment of silence for you all. I can´t tell you how happy I am to know that you are all doing so good!!!!!!!!!!! I got a letter this week from sister Pitts, brother Pitts and Dayna and Connelly. It was super awesome, the letter from connelly seriously made me laugh until I almost cried! It is now on the wall as a permanent reminder of how great a brother I have. Well a lot is changing your way and the same thing is happening here. Transfers this month were ridiculous! Almost every hermana was changed and did a white wash. I didn´t do a white wash, but I absolutely love my companion!!!!! I won´t say her name yet. I will just send you a pic. No one wanted to talk to us this week it was an interesting week, but I was lost because I am now in Villa Angela and well, I just love my companion! I am doing good! I gave a talk on Sunday and I also had to give the class for relief fun! Today when I get done writing we are traveling to Las Breñas and we will stay there with 6 other hermanas for the night. In the morning we have a meeting and then we come back and then I travel back to Saenz Peña Saturday for the conferencia de distrito and i will see my old rama again. Then we might come back Sunday or we will travel to las breñas again and stay the night and come back's gonna be crazy! I am super excited though! Hey I love the fotos that you sent me!!! you are all so beautiful! or okay there is a word in inglés that I can´t remember but you all look really great!!!!!

Yep my new\old companion is the hna Skirvin!!!!!! We are still kinda in shock that we are comps...Also, I am so excited to see where Connelly gets called!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh our last pday we went to the zoo again. It was awesome because all the animals were eating, they had like 15 cougars, and they were are growling at each other and there were several animals that were missing, and some were out of their cages but oh well. Oh it is also getting colder here every day! during the day it is doable but at night it is freezing!!!! and our new apartment is... eh we can´t flush our toilet paper...what a bummer no!

love you!

June 2, 2014 Sáenz Peña, Chaco, Argentina

Dad, that was the best kite adventure I have ever heard!!!! I am so proud! That lame man on the lawn mower just doesn´t know that you can fly a kite at any time and at any age...all the cool people are doing it. It sounds like we are gonna need more string when i get back though :) I am so excited to see grandma and grandpa´s new house! I can´t believed they moved. 

I am in shock right now....Connelly is gonna graduate!!!!!! He is so old!!!! How is mom doing? mission papers? Is Austi coming up too? I am so excited to see those pictures! Also its gonna be mom´s birthday!!!!!!!!!!!! What an exciting week! I also have transfers tomorrow...i am nervous as we are expecting big changes. 

This week...well, I watched a huge double decker bus crash into a huge electric pole. It was pretty funny because he was backing up in the bus parking lot, yep and we had a sketching lesson with a women who told us her whole life story without breathing and i was in shock like whoa! 

It has been warming up again, well the sun is super hot but the shade is like ice. It's interesting. Walking to church on Sunday was sketchy because there was a fog covering everything so we couldn't see so well, and it was cold, but it was good in the end. The reciente converts aren't coming to church because of the cold, so that has been sad. Pte Heyman has been really stressing retention lately, but really we do our part to retain the people, but they still have their agency and Satan has a way of making people think it is okay not to come to church. It's frustrating. Yep, but all in all, life is good! I am happy and like you said, I am just trying to make the best of every moment. 

Oh in reply to Patty´s comment. I tract all day long. We have about 4 to 6 lessons a day and we are just looking for people who wanna listen and are willing to go to church and change their lives. But to be honest i really don´t know the definition to tracting(yet she's doing it everyday. Reinna's awesome)...this language thing has just made me real confused, what is inglés and what is español...I have no idea. I love you sooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you have a great week!!!! Love you all tons! Tell connelly good luck for me and take tons of pictures!!!!!!!!!!!

PS. Oh i got your letters with the corrections! It was awesome because you corrected me on some things that I figured out right before I got your letter. Every day the language gets a little easier, but it is a never ending process of learning. :) I love it!
