Before I start about anything else, I just had a pretty cool moment here. When I was back in the Riverton Farms Ward a few months ago, around the time when I got my mission call. I met a missionary in the Reunión Sacramental called E´ Tinoco. He was called to Mendoza but he was waiting for his visa and serving in our ward. He even remembers the family a bit and a lot of the ward. He taught Cody Baker, Jason Hill´s friend. Well, odd enough I am sitting right next to him right now in the Ciber. He recognized my last name. Fun eh?
So you may want to know how the new area is and all the deets within. Well, I have already given you a moderately thorough description of my new comp. So I´ll just describe the area. Godoy Cruz is a great zone. My area is called San Ignacio. It is very much smaller than my last and has a lot more in it. The ward is very amazing. They have a new bishop and he is just a stud who will be very awesome to work with. It is kinda weird, because we have to share this area with a companionship that work in the offices. So what is basically happening is that the mission just threw my new comp and I here because a lot of new missionaries came this transfer and not enough left. Ha. So it is my second experience with "washing" an area. But this one is to the extreme. Ha. The definition of washing is just two missionaries arriving in the area at the same time, because it usually happens that one stays in the area every transfer. This time we don´t have anything to work with so we have to go find everything ourselves. We have been in the streets a lot trying to talk to a bunch of people. It is such a small area that is seems like everyone has already chatted with the misioneros before. We have a couple that could be pretty good though. And with the ward helping us, we are going to have bundles of success here!
We have a disabled pet dog(not really a pet, most dogs here are territorial and come by the house a lot) whose name is Jalepeño and always looks like he is pooping. His legs must be some sort of paralyzed or something because it is definitely not normal. He is really nice though and likes hard bread.
Right now, we are sitting in a ciber in the mall. I´m pretty sure this room is used for a club every night. Ha. They just barely started blasting Party Rock by LMFAO and the lights are flashing and stuff. I think they really want me to get up and dance, but I will refrain. Ha.
Thanks for the pics. Ha. I really liked the cartoon and mallory´s pic of her squinkies. I´ve never heard of those, but they sound like fun.
So the Giants won the Superbowl this year eh?
That sounds pretty fun that it was a poopy week. I hope everything gets better with all of the season sicknesses. Ill make sure to keep you in my prayers.
I´ll have to ask some people about this parade thing. It sounds like it would be pretty fun. I don´t have too much more time to write because these computers countdown with time and Ive only got a bit left.
Thanks for sending the package. I got mail from a kim, the tophams, and a few other friends this past week because we have visited the office a few times because we are really close to it now. They did not have a package there when I passed by on friday. Hopefully it comes soon. How did you find a Lower Lights CD? Ha. What else is in the package?
My eyes have been starting to hurt a little bit lately. It has been harder to wear the contacts without them irritating me pretty bad. I wear my glasses more than usual. Because of that, a lot of the members in my last ward called me Clark Kent. Ha ha.
I don´t have time to send any pictures today. Next week will be a ton hopefully.
Thanks for everything!
Love you all!
La Iglesia es verdadera!
