summer is going to go by so fast with all the stuff i want and have to do.
I'm pretty sure the package will show up this month.
We get the call this weekend, we'll see what will happen.(about transfers)
Was a pretty good week, we had some pretty good success. We also had intercambios with the zone leaders. Been studying alot during the siesta, I love the scriptures so much!! We had a huge rainstorm sunday, got soaked going to church and everything was flooded. I also can't believe that i only have 4 months left, I'm sure they will pass by so fast with a new area.
Miss you all!!
January 17, 2017 Transfer to Chacabuco
Still nothing on the package... I hope it's in the mission home or super close to getting here. I was able to pull out the money, went smoothly and was very secure. I got transfered to Chacabuco in cordoba captial the north stake. I'm reading 10 pages each Day since the begining of the year and the Book of Mormon is flying by, I'm already in Jacob.
It was sad livinh my kid but I feel like the area is going to be great, I'm going to try to work my best
Love you all

The new area is great, really big ward and a big area with lots of work to do. Really strong members here and many want to help in the missionary work. My comp Elder Asplund is from San Diego CA, he has 5 months in the mission. Really cool dude, we get a long really well.
My head is spinning with so much stuff lately, but working hard and keeping focused with the work. I'm trying my best not to worry and think about home, school, and all that stuff.
We found a lot of people this week. I'm flying through the BoM. In mosiah
my comp and elder summer have more pics.

Wednesday we had a worldwide missionary broadcast with several apostols and other general authorities. They taught us several things about the importance of teaching repentance and baptizing converts. They also made a few small changes to the missionary schedule and the numbers that we report. It was very interesting to see how the changes they made were truly inspired to help us be more focused on the most important thing. It reminded me of the general conference talk "Good, Better, Best" from a couple years ago. Now, because of these changes, it will be a lot easier to focus on the "best" or most important things instead of being caught up on "better" or "good" things (which obviously are still good, but not as important). Its a great model for our lives, focusing on what is most important instead of procrastinating it for something of lesser importance.
My week has been great, we are working hard and having much success. We had H. and S. in Church sunday. Yestarday we taught a member's grand daughter for the first time, she wants to get baptized this month!!! We are also teaching this really awesome referal from the bishop. We are finding and teaching lots of amazing people here. Love the ward and my comp. The 4 elder pension has nice and lots of fun. Been running every other day in the mornings. I am now in the book of Alma.
I got a package from the Bush family, give the family my thanks! Can you send me her email so I can write here thanks and write back to her letter.
Still waiting on the family package, starting to get worried.
Love you guys so much
