|Friends along the way|
I’m sorry I didn’t write yesterday. I was in the middle of transfers all day and traveled the whole day. I made it to my area safely yesterday night at like 6 :30. It was buenisimo!!!! HAHA just kidding it was a long day of traveling!!! I left Cultral co with my heart torn out of my chest at 5:50 in the morning. I traveled to NQN by huge double decker bus with pretty much beds and arrived at 7:30 in the morning. Then I left Neuquén and arrived in a famous city called Bariloche at 3:00 in the afternoon. After that I got on another bus and traveled from 4:30 to 6:30 to El Bolson. Then from El Bolson I traveled to my area which is very remote, and stuck way up in the mountains like Park City, with a lake and way more trees.
The Most beautiful place in the mission. I am told. My area is called Lago Puelo. It means lake of the many waters. Right now I’m so blessed to be in this beautiful area. Reminds me so much of home!!! haha rivers lakes and huge pine trees and rains all the time!!! :)
This week was good, and we did some good things in the last week of Cultral co. Mostly said by to investigators and families that we had met and wanted to say goodbye to. I seriously am going to miss that area with all my heart. I saw some many changes for good, and for worse and really grew as a person there. It was so nice and really beautiful to me... but REALLY UGLY TO A NORMAL HUMAN EYE! haha and on Sunday that passed was mother’s day in Argentina, so happy mother’s day mom, from Argentina!!
I want to talk about the things I have learned there. I really feel like I grew as a person and really learned a lot about myself. In speaking of that, I mean humility, patience, I hope that is how you spell it in English. But I learned how to love every person and really know how to look on others instead of look inside on myself and change what I do instead of what others do. Cultral co really has a special place in my heart and really I don’t think i will ever see it again and it makes me sad to think that.
We ended up not having much success like I have said in the past but I am really looking forward to seeing big things happen with this companion and this area!!
My new companion is named Elder Ogden and he is from Idaho. He is a really good worker and he got to the mission with my best friend Elder Hill. He has 17 months and we are really getting along well. We have been able to talk and work hard for this first day. I’m super excited to tell you about the changes that are coming to Lago Puelo!!!
I love the my mission and I know that the church is true. I know God loves us and I will never forget!!
