Dear family,
It rained on Saturday and I was cold. I can´t believe that I, Aleta, am about to say this but...I was HAPPY that it was cold. Pathetic. Today is warmer though. Not hot, just warmer. Yeah, I think that fall is finally here.
Okay so I like the name, Calista, cute. I can´t wait to see some more pictures! Oh and yes mom, feel free to move or even delete some things. I really dodn´t need a lot of the pictures that are in the Kodak program.
So thank you for the letters. Aunt Janie I´m glad that Mike is doing great and it sounds like your life is as busy as always, thanks for the up dates. Jack, thanks for the letter, I´m sure your talk was great, and congrats on the job. I hope you like it.
Something that I´ve started to notice in my life is that most of the time other people don´t know what is best for me. Only the lord does. Trust in him and trust in yourself and you won´t go wrong. Listen to the spirit and don´t be afraid of what it tells you to do, one way or the other. This has really helped me over here in Argentina, it´s helped me a lot to know that the Lord is always there and that when I have fears or doubts about something, anything, he is there.
Oh I almost forgot. I met a little boy who could be the twin of Aaron. okay I realize that Aaron has a twin, Bryan, but this boy, could be the Argentine duplicate. His hair, eyes, shape of eyes, down so his love of cars. Seriously if Aaron has slightly darker skin and brown hair and spoken Spanish , I´d think it were him.
AS for this week... This week just really seemed to fly by. It was a good week here in Tigre. We had three investigators at church this week.
We are kind of at a stand still with him if them, we can´t see him until next week and we are going to invite him to be baptised again. He has been avoiding the subject lately, he feels that it is true and he loves reading the Book of Mormon, especially Alma, but for some reason won´t pray about it. He prays, and he reads, he just doesn´t pray to know if it is true. Today in our companion study we did a practice for him and something I really liked was my companion said, okay, then let´s pray right now together, specifically to know if it is true.¨I loved it and I really think that this will help him, so this is in our plans for the next week.
Also, there is another who is really great. He is 20 year old and lives on the isla. He has been coming to church alone for a few week s now and he really likes it. He definitely has desires, he travels one hour each way and pays 12 pesos round trip. We finally were able to teach him after church yesterday and I´m really impressed with him. One of the members, Hno. Acosta, is going to meet the rest of his family this weekend and invite them to church as well.
We received a phone call last week from a guy, he is 20 and has been less active for 4 years. I´m not entirely sure how the elders found him, but they did. They passed him our information and he contacted us. He has a really strong testimony. He told us that the thing he wants to most is that his family can return to the church as well. We met his Sister and Brother-in-law and nephew. He came to church yesterday and brought his nephew. We have plans to bring several of the single adults with us to meet him as well.
I´m doing just fine here and am enjoying the time I have to serve the Lord.

Well that´s all for me.
I love you all,
