The End of an Era

Wow... Where to start

108 weeks of writting home, and this is the last of them..

My letter will be short and simple (like they always have been)
Ive came to realize that the simple things in the gosple are the things that truly help us through times of need. The simple act of kindness, love, caring, service, listining, or showing someone that you truly care has the potential to turn a life around.

I have been honored to be able to litteraly put on the name of Christ for these past 750 days and preach his gosple. I have seen the Lord`s hand in this work and have felt his guidance. I came to know what I`ve sang my whole life ´´I am a Child of God´´

All of us, at one point, lose our eternal perspective. The challenge is to regain it as quickly as posible. To help investigators, less active members, my companions, other missionaries, and myself recognize our eternal perspective has given me the opportunity to realize many great and wonderful things. It has helped my testimony grow to an unimaginable height. 

I think Doctrine and Covenents describes it best. 

 31 My people must be tried in all things, that they may beprepared to receive the glory that I have for them, even theglory of Zion; and he that will not bear chastisement is notworthy of my kingdom.

I know that this Church is truly the Church of Christ. I know that he has been down to the lowest of lows to help us reach the highest of highs. Joseph Smith saw God and his Son. He recieved an answer to his prayers. That changed my life, and the life of those I have came to love in these past 2 years. 
Ill never be able to express truly how I feel right now, and how I`ve felt. 
God lives, and he loves you. If you don`t TRULY belive that, get on your knees and look for the answer, then get on your feet and find it! 

I love you guys more now that I did 2 years ago, even though I haven`t even seen you.

See you in 10 days!

Hi guys. Im not going to lie. I dont think youll ever get a super awesome email updating you guys about my week and all of its crazy adventures.. Today it could be because of the hours of futbol, the trip to another pueble to eat at a members resaurant (hes from the states, so we obviously ate good) or maybe the kilo of icecream that we put away during the day. But I am tired, and I don´t think I´ll get around to writing a crazy awesome email like I usually do.....

Also, due to the fact that I don´t have a camera and haven´t passed myself the pics from my comps camera, this turned out to be a pretty lame email.. 

Sorry guys.

Maybe next week (dont get your hopes too high....)

Sorry guys for the short update. This week we are in the Capital of Tucumàn to visit our old areas, so we want to take advantage of all of the time that we have.

As for our week, it was solid. We had a 18 year old kid come to church last week, and we took his dirrection and set up an appointment, and we honestly feel that this family is super prepared! 
we got there and taught them for the first time and they were super receptive!!! They are excited to keep learnin and reach they baptismal goal for the 24th! 
Other than that, we had some solid meetings and conferences that really helped a lot. 1 was with President Chaparro, his counsilor, the district president, and some special guests. and wow. It was a good time for revelation!!!

Sorry I still don`t have any pictures...

The Bus Life

Big, fast update...

Last week we finished strong. Finished in the sense of elder Apolinarios training. we were able to have a whole lot of fun together for 3 months. 
Finished also in the sense of, even though I only have 1 more month in the mission, I have been sent to another, final area. 
Sunday afternoon President Chaparro called and gave me the news that I would be headed to Concepcion, Tucumán. So, sunday night we put on the hiking shoes and went to say bye to all of the people that have helped and impacted me in these last 4 months. The saddest, (pics from last week) was saying bye to my good friend Javier. We have worked hard to activate and excite javier to put some goals and reach them, It was hard for the both of us to see me go earlier than we were expecting. He gave us dinner, and I gave him the tie off of my neck.
Monday I enjoyed an 8 hour bus ride to my new area, and now we are workin hard
I am with Elder Mendez. He is from Quito, Ecuador. He started the mission 1 transfer after I did, and we both started in the same zone, so we´ve kind of known eachother. 
This week we have traveled a LOT! our zone is a spacious zone full of lots of bus rides. On wednesday, we did splits and I was honored to work with elder Figueredo. He is from brazil and is about to complete 1 year in the mission. Then on friday, we had some last second baptismal interviews, so I was able to work with a good buddy, Elder Brundage. then we had a slumber party in our apt. 
Our apartment is actually really really nice! So thats a blessing. today we cleaned it up even more, its nice to be able to come home from a hard day of work and not be grossed out by your house. Its nice to feel at home!! 

Sorry, but my camera broke (idk how) and im not too worried about finding a new one. My comp takes lots of pics, so ill be sure to send them your way once I get them from him!

Love you guys! 
See you next week!

Also, they put me as a zone leader, wasn`t expecting that even more than the first........ but what evs."

I actually have time this week, I just don´t know what to write...
This week we had to travel, a lot! 
My comp had to go to Salta to do some paperwork in order to be legal here in Argentina, then we had a conference on the other side of salta. For those who don´t know, slata is kindof like a U, and we had to be in the two tips, and we live in the middle...

other than that, we keep trying to find people to teach, and more importantly, trying to help the branch get excited to help us, and to become better in all aspects, like starting on time, providing a welcoming invironment for the investigators, showing up and preparing when they have to give talks, ect....

I now have less than 50 days in the mission.. Its kinda wierd, but it still hasn´t kicked in...
