Dec 1, 2016

Dec 1, 2016It’s now December in Buenos Aires and it feels pretty weird with it being super-hot here.  We celebrated American thanksgiving here last week and that was pretty awesome.  We had a huge turkey dinner followed by a devotional from Elder Anderson; he gave a great talk.  It was a great time, but I don’t think Argentines know how to cook turkey as well as they know how to cook steak, but it was still pretty good.  The food here is still incredible, the other day we ate cordon bleu (I think that’s what you call it).  Everyone here treats you like a king.  Even when we go proselyting people give us a lot of respect for what we are doing.  This week when we went tracting, just before we got on the bus we know it would rain but we didn’t think it would rain that much, but it did; it poured.   All I had was a shell jacket, so all my cloths got soaked, and we barely saw anyone in the streets, but we still talked to everyone and were having success; it’s great. When we go tracting, they take us on a bus with your companion to an area at 12 noon and say meet back here at 5pm.  They pull up a map and tell you areas that are restricted because they are too sketchy.  You get your own designated tracting area.  It can be hard to get in the door, but people will are very friendly and respectful.  I think they realize we represent something really special, but there so lazy cause of cesta’s, which is like a four hour nap after lunch, which is in the middle of our tracting time. 

I’ve been studying a ton about Jesus Christo lately, especially in john and I wanna go to the holy land sooooo bad after my mission with the boys - that would be so cool. 

Last district meeting we set a goal to speak straight Spanish the entire week, which has been sooo hard to do but were we are totally capable of it. It’s weird to think I’ll be leaving this awesome place soon, I’ll miss it soooooo much; it’s been the best.  There’s a picture in the cafeteria that I love to look at everyday; I picture it being me and Lance, it looks just like us.  I hope all is still well with everyone back home, I pray for you guys all time here, love you - Elder Maller
