Leaving for the MTC

Tuesday, May 21, 2013


hola familia,
So basically elder jarpa got transfered haha. We were all kinda surprised since he doesnt have much time here but yeah. My new companion is elder ullua from cordoba argentina. He has almost a year on the mission. Should be a pretty good transfer but we will see. Elder walker got transferred which is sad but I'm just glad that he didnt go down south cause those that go south today arent coming back cause it will be a different mission next month.. Elder mcnab is going south haha.. Me and elder harrison, walker, brown, and alder are really glad that none of us went south.. I would have been way sad if they did. I'm sad elder mcnab is but oh well. So from our original mtc district only the utahns are here now :) haha the 3 others that werent from utah are in different places now so yeah its pretty funny and crazy. Elder arosticas new companion in savio will be elder solum who was here in this ward when maschwitz and savio were one area and then split. He was here for 9 months. Lots of time.. and now hes coming back to finish his last 3 months here haha its going to be nuts. Everyone here loves him and misses him so it will be interesting but should be good. Elder whitzit is now in my zone too haha. And mom I have some bad news about your package you sent me.... elder walker had it in his hands to bring to me when they had a training meeting a week ago. And he accidentally left it in the church and I asked hermana lowry today and she said she hasnt seen it and doesnt know anything about it.. So either a member put it somewhere or someone stole it in the church... so hopefully it shows up.. but could you just send me a small package asap with the gel and I dunno a treat or something? Dont worry about the rings anymore.. I dont want you to buy new ones. If you want to buy a new one thats the same as austins and jacobs I'm fine with that but dont worry about the others.. So besides that it was a good week. So me and elder walker did divisions the other day for the last time which was really good and fun. On saturday there was a ward baptism of the daughter of an hermano that works for the mission and helped us move into our pention an everything. And it was her birthday too so in the cultural hall afterwards they had a bunch of party stuff and food. The dad works in the offices a lot so he knows the lowry couple that are in the offices and do all the financial stuff and so they came with elder jorquera and his companion from the offices so it was cool to chill with them. Also an ex missionary that served here in savio was there that had come back 8 months after his mission and married a girl from savio and they live in the states now and his parents live in provo. It was cool to talk to them and the wife speaks english pretty well. They have a cool story cause they met his second to last day on his mission haha pretty nuts! On saturday night we made tacos with familia diosque our investigators cause I had told them about tacos cause they dont really have those here much and so they wanted me to make them for them so me and elder walker made tacos as you can see in the pic and they were really really good! We taught something and it was a really fun night. Sunday they didnt come to church like they were supposed to... :( but maira and juan came with us to the despedida sunday night. Sandy and yamila came with us too. It was way fun! I got to talk to flia gutierrez from tortuguitas and my friend franco from tortuguitas was there too! It was so good to see and talk to him! And also I saw flia vallejos from palermo. And all my mtc district was there except elder walker so it was way good to see all them and say goodbye to elder daniel who just finished his mish in maschwitz. But yeah it was fun. Now we just gotta get new investigators. Maira has a date on the 2nd and we are going to put one for the same day with manuel so that will be sweet. The parents still need to get married... so yeah that was a very brief description of the same. It was a crazy week. Also tomorrow night we are gonna have another missionary activity so hopefully we have a good turn out this time.

Wow sounds like lots of stuff at home happened this last week so thats good! Thats crazy that austin moved out already! Where does he live? Thats good its getting warmer there. Here it is now reallly really cold.. the mornings and nights are way cold but during noon its usually warm and sunny. Its kinda weird. But we already broke out coats and scarfs for the evenings.Thanks for all your words mom and your love and support. You really are the best! your my hero!! :) Sorry I cant respond to everything but I love hearing about everything either way. les amo mucho!! :)

Elder Buxton

p.s. normally on pdays we have to stay in our districts but on transfer days we dont know the districts yet so after internet we are gonna go hang out with elder whizit in escobar. Should be fun :)
