Wow, that week went fast!‏

My lovely family and friends,

I love You! Mom, thank you for the letter. How are Scott and Betsy doing? How are Uncle Nick and Aunt Phylis? I´m really glad you got to have such a fun time in Bremerton. Yeah, Tigre is really pretty. Apparently it is a major vacation spot for people who live in Capital, the down town part of Buenos Aires. So on the weekends it is really crazy. It is spring right now, so the weather is beautiful, very much like May in Washington. We even had a few overcast days last week :) It was a nice little present from the Lord. The only thing is, in the summer it´s going to be crazy busy! There is a big river that runs right through it which means lots of humidity. So that should be fun! At least it will be an adventure, don´t worry I´ll tell you all about it.
Oh and something I was going to mention but almost forgot, until I read Jack´s letter.... the FOOD! SO GOOD. It´s a good thing it´s hot here in the summer, cause apparently you just sweat off all the weight you gain from the food. There is a lot of pasta. Most of the time it is home made and amazing. One of the members served us steak and papa fritas (french fries) the other day. Seriously one of the best steaks I have ever had. Resturant quality. Oh and the ice cream is amazing. Oh and one thing they use ALL the time......Potatos! Yeah, I have had them several different ways and each one is great. OH and the soup, yum! SO basically the food is great and I need to get recipies before I leave.
Dad, that´s great to hear about your poetry, keep up the good work to you too.
Aunt Janie, the apple sauce sounds like fun. I hope you got it all done and have room left in the basement :)
Oh somebody tell Daniel S. congrats for me. Hey how are my friends in the Singles Ward, Tamsin, Lissy (are you still alive), The Atkinsons, Wilson´s...everyone!
So as far as what I´ve been up to...One of our investigators Olga is so ready! She just needs her baptisimal interview and we are good to go. She has been having a hard time because she feels alone in her decision, Well we went and picked her up for church yesterday and that made all the difference. She finally got to meet friends. She was so cute walking around and everyone she met she wrote down their names and their phone numbers. Then in R.S. they were talking about baptism and the teacher asked the question ¨who needs to be baptised¨ well, she was looking for an answer like, every one over the age of eight.... But Olga just smiles and raises her hand high up in the air! It was great.

Well I think that´s all I have time for this week.
I love you and pray for you,

PS. Mom, the mission president´s wife said to befriend her on Facebook. She puts up pictures of the missionaries from time to time, from zone conferences and things. So yeah you can check that out.
PPS. Jack I got the pictures, thanks.
PPPS. Brandi hang in there. I love getting your emails.
PPPPS. Yes I feel much better by the way.
PPPPPS. Now I really got to go LOVE from me to you!
