hey guys, its been sooo long!! hahah
sorry that i wasnt able to call back last night. it kinda went down the way you thought. like we got back a little later than i was expecting and then i was like, ¨ehhh well my comp needs to talk to his family.¨ so i just let him go in and talk. like no worries though. it was cool cause we were able to hear each other and everything. it sounds like things are going well. there were a couple things that i wanted to say that i didnt have time to mention last night. im planning on leaving like all my short sleeve shirts too cause ill never wear them after. seriously, never haha. ive got enough long sleeve ones that ill be able to use any other time that i need one. but if theres like any reason why you think that i shouldnt leave either of these behind, let me know.
well we werent really able to talk a lot about my week last night. but it was honestly a pretty crazy one. but the thing was, we seriously had hardly any time to actually work in our area. on tuesday, like i mentioned last week, we had to take a nice double decker bus for 6 hours to get to adrogué. the first time i took that bus ride, it was somewhat fun. now im just over it hahah. but my comp and i had a ton of time to talk and stuff. and i talked to this one lady for a really long time too about the gospel. it was weird to be back in adrogué though. it felt alot like christmas cause it was kinda colder and there were alot more people and stuff. but then on wednesday we had a leadership meeting for all the zone leaders of the mission. i got to see all my friends and stuff. but that meeting was also pretty sad cause whenever some missionaries are about to finish, president stapley asks them to bear their testimony. and it seriously just got to me really strong. like when it was my turn it was just so weird. it kinda hit me that there wasnt that much time left. its a good thing that the tears dont go shooting out of my eyes that easily cause it was definately tough. there were some of my friends and people that i might not see again or atleast for a couple more months. but overall, it was a good meeting and alot of fun. that night we spent the night in the mission home so that we could take the bus early in the morning. we left around 8 on thursday and got back around 2ish. its so crazy how much that ride actually takes out of ya haha.
the rest of the week was just us racing around our area to try and get in some lessons with people that we´re teaching. i think one of the coolest things that happened this week was that monica´s step son (monica is the lady we´re trying to get married and baptized) got home from his mission in ecuador. its sweet cause hes really excited to help in the missionary work and really wants his step mom to get baptized. so hopefully he keeps up helping us and everything. i know that he told us that hes got alot of references of friends that he wants to give us...score! haha
mom, here we were allowed to go on skype to talk to the fam too, but i decided not to do it for 2 reasons. first, my comps family didnt really know how to do it. so i was just figured that we could both talk on the phone. second, i figure that ill be seeing you all in just a little bit, so i just thought that id wait. but yeah, i know some people that did it. but i think that it would make them kinda trunky so im kinda glad that i didnt end up doing it. dad, it was good to hear ya last night. thanks for not giving me the entire run down of my flight plans and stuff though haha. its probably better that i just dont know about that stuff yet. sean, dude happy birthday again. hopefully you liked the little seranade that i had prepared for ya haha. bummer about the lakers and everything. but hey, not all of our teams could win while ive been here on the mission. no te preocupes, en un ratito empieca el futbol americano hahah. paige, we´re probably not just gonna have to go to the wave this summer. im in need of a tan, so im thinkin that we should get some beach days in there too hahah. bridg, havent heard alot about jilian in awhile...are you already sick of her? hahah where have i heard, ´no mom ill always take care of her!¨ and a couple months later, moms the only one feeding or walking the dog hahaha.
hey guys so i was thinking, and this might actually be the last email that i send. like next week, im not sure if ill be able to write or not. like id say that you should write and stuff just in case, but since its the last week, i dont know if im gonna be able to write. but we´ll just see what happens. if i can write again, we´ll be hearin from each other next week. if not, well you all know when we´ll be hearin from each other hahah. but either way, i love you all!
