Christmas Skype - Tucuman

Thursday, December 25, 2014

[Merry Christmas! So Neil was checking the computer all day because we were expecting to hear from Alec late morning, but it wasn't until about 3:30 in the afternoon when he tried to contact us. It was so good to see Alec and talk with him! We were able to speak with him for almost an hour. He and his companion were using the computer at their church in Tucuman. Alec looks healthy and seems positive and happy! 

We can't believe his missionary service is on the home stretch. I know he has been blessed and has blessed those he has come in contact with; and our family has certainly received many blessings because of his service to our Heavenly Father in spreading the good news of Christ!]

Week 15 - Tucuman

December 22, 2014

I will be calling you on Thursday probably around 10 or 11 your time!

So yeah, its been a good week. We had a great time in conference. I learned a lot. I am enjoying my time here with my comp. It is really hard with him sometimes but luckily I have built up a ton of patience and it hasnt run out with him ;) jaja no but I have a good time! Its crazy how Christmas has come so fast. It feels like last week was Thanksgiving even though I havent had one for over 2 years. I dont know what to say right now. jaja

Week 14 - Tucuman

December 15, 2014

I bought the glasses in downtown Centro. I dont think our district will go back to that place but we are planning to go with other elders. 

I will be able to call on Skype for Christmas. I will do it on the 25th. I am not sure at what time still but me and my companion will talk. We dont have a sure place to do it from yet but we are looking. We arent sure if the cybers will be open. Usually they always are. 

This week we are going to have zone Christmas conference. We will be with all three zones of Tucuman. We are about 70 or 80 missionaries. 

I hope you all have a great Christmas. I miss you all a TONS! I miss all the family!  

So I have to go. Sorry that I wasnt able to write much! Time right now is getting hard to manage. Its ridiculous! I also received my trunky papers from the mission to start getting things ready to go home.  

I will see you later! I love you all! Tell everyone hey and that I think of them often! Cuidense!

Week 13 - Tucuman

Monday, December 8, 2014

My week was pretty good! It got really hot!

The pictures or painting was at a members house. That was only the first coat. But yes that is Elder Mendoza with me. [see email of 12.1.14]

I didnt get to go to the Christmas thing because it started at 10 here. 

We are doing good as companions and as a District. We are starting to have big problems with getting people to church. We had stake conference last week and a guy made a question. He was talking about the sacrament. He said "Would we go a week without taking a bath?"  Thats obvious that no we wouldnt do that. Then he related it with the sacrament and how it cleanses us. I liked it a lot and I think I will focus on that point. I hope that the district can do it to!

Today we went to El Cadillal. Its a cool place. There is a lot of thing that you can do but we went to go some waterfalls. Some people gave us bad directions so we never made it but we stopped by a little pond place and took some pictures and ate lunch. It was nice. President gave permission for the district to go together. 

I have got some pictures for you. I accidentally cut my hair a little short also but it looks good! haha
