2nd to last transfer.....

Hola Familia,
Wow so I feel like so much has happened since the last time I wrote you guys.. so Im guessing your wanting to know about transfers first. Well in the end I got transfered! and my prayers were answered and I'm back in capital :) I am now in constitucion 1 in the congreso stake. I am now with elder cutipa who is from peru and has about 6 months in his mission. So basically I am doing to die (in the mission) here in capital which I'm happy about :) and elder cutipa only has 1 transfer in our area so he could actually kill me (in the mission) if he stays another transfer. And something awesome is that right next to our area and right now as I speak we are like a block away from the boca stadium!! :) You guys dont know how stoked I am to go there one of these p days! Right now we are with elder franco who finishes his mission tomorrow and then it will just be me and elder cutipa. We live with 4 of us right now in a pench that is 10 times better than mine in maschwitz but we are supposedly moving this week to our own pench which has air conditioning so we dont die during the summer! I'm so lucky! elders pray hard here to have a pench with air conditioning during the summer but there are very few. Okay so last week was a really really crazy week. On wednesday we had a mission tour and elder viñas of the seventy came and spoke to us. He is one of the counselers of the area presidency and used to be in the first quorum of the seventy. It was awesome and I'll talk a little more about that at the end. Also that same day I did divisions with elder walker and he came with me so that we could go eat the 4 of us at cubillas house which we did and it was great. We also ate there last night too like always :) all week we had lunch and dinners and I had a list of things to do before I left which I think I got most of them done which is really good. On saturday it was elder goodwins birthday and there was a complication and so on accident we had 2 lunches.. we were sitting at yamilas house after eating for the second time for like 30 min just on the edge of vomitting. And then dinner at night too.. it was nuts! We were so sick.. haha. Sunday we didnt go to the despedida cause we couldnt get anyone and I wanted to stay and see people anyway. Yesterday was really hard saying bye to everyone.. :( I had a whole list of people to see and at what times. It was pretty crazy! Then I was up til 3 in the morning talking to members, elder arostica, and packing. It was hard, crazy, sad, and happy all at the same time. yamila cried a lot... that was hard. But I know she will be okay. Most of them will be coming to my despedida in december soon anyway so that helped to know that. Man I feel like so much happened last week but its just too much to tell.. elder arostica left too and is now in pompeya 2. That used to be part of this zone but they split the zone 2 transfers ago and now we arent in the same zone.. :( we were sad about that and talked for hours last night while we packed. Besides that it was a very very hard start of the week with monday raining hard all day and we couldnt do anything for pday and then stuff at home and here and just the beginning of the week was not good and the end was crazy and kinda sad. But thats what I loved about the mission tour cause elder viñas talked a lot about the atonement and how it has helped us in our mission. That meeting helped me to realize that why I was able to bear up all the things that were happening at the beginning of the week actually with ease too was because of the atonement. I honestly felt the power work in me and I knew that I should have been way way worse but because of that power I was able to carry my burdens with ease. I actually kinda realized that cause when I got more casual during the end of the week I felt that power go away and it was harder to lift up the burden. I learned a very good lesson though. So yeah thats a tiny sum of some of the stuff that I can think about right now haha. I'm going to miss all the people in maschwitz a ton... :( but I'm very excited with my new area and to get to know new people and to finish in capital and I feel like I have a pretty good companion. I guess we will find out!

I'm glad you guys are all doing good and keeping busy. And I'm so glad to hear that ashlee is getting better! :) tell her to keep it up :) yes I'm getting very excited for my last general conference in argentina :) I'm stoked! It's gonna be great! haha cow heart isnt that common here I dont think. cow stomach is pretty common though but I dont like it very much.. well I guess thats it for now hopefully it continues to warm up here cause I'm tired of the cold. les amo a todos! :) chau!
