Hello Family!!!

So i am doing great here!!! Todo bien, todo tranquilo!!! Tengo animo que Erik se va casar pronto. Que Bueno!!! hahaaha No te precupes Erik que no me escribe, yo sé, está bien. Me alegro que estés feliz and tengas tanto animo.

To answer your question about if i can hear people scream goal in the streets... thats a positive. We didn´t leave the pension yesterday because Arg. played and we wouldnt have any success so we stayed in and i read my scrips and took a little nap. The thing here is they like shooting off fireworks from there front yards when Arg. Scores. They also like to yell and blow plastic trumpets. The when the game is over they like to drive around honking. So it is pretty loud here. Pretty crazy. I dont want to see the day when they lose because they are crazy and happy, i dont want to see them crazy and sad/mad... no thank you.

Other than that, the investigator that was baptized was interviewed yesterday para que califique de recibir el sacerdocio arónico. Entonces, estamos muy felizes por eso. Y Wilson, él es muy animado porque quiere predicar el Evangelio y recibir el sacerdocio tambien. Le encanta el Evangelio y no es un miembro todavía. hahaha La misión es tan increíble! Estoy leyendo las escrituras como no otro!! Me encanta las escrituras. El Señor me ayuda mucho. especialmente en las escrituras en las semana pasadas... es loco per verdad. no me lo creo. he aprendido tanto sólo porque Dios me permite.

The President is about to leave and the new one is coming in. It is pretty crazy. Time is flying by really fast and i cant hardly belive it. I am learning soo much i cannot even believe it. The scriptures are my best friends and i love feasting upon the words. All is well with those we teach. Daniel that we baptised will recieve the aaronic priesthood soon. He was interviewed yesterday so that is awesome!!! We met with Wilson who cant wait to be baptized. It is kinda funny, he told us that he had a dream a while ago that he was being taught by a North American "Chilean" or latino and a argentine ( a member that teaches with us). I thought that was pretty cool!!! who would have figured hahaha

I like telling funny stories that happens. It is always with my comp. We were working saturday and there was news that it was going to rain sunday. There were alot of clouds out though and i figured it was going to rain. i took my umbrella and my coat and we left. So here, ther is like a mist that is all over before it starts to rain or after or when it cant rain rain, it mists. So it started to mist Saturday and we got wet a little bit. We didnt have any appts. so we went to a members house and we had a little lesson. Then we had to walk about 25- 27 blocks away to go to another appt. with Daniel. We start walking and it starts to mist and then rain. then it starts getting harder. My comp has a coat on that isnt waterproof without a umbrella. After the first 10 blocks i looked at him he was drenched. I had a good laugh with myself. Then at 20 blocks he looks liked he just got out of the shower. He was walking fast so he could get to the house of daniel so that we could get dry. He was completly soaking. I couldnt help to laugh because he was soo unprepared and he knew that i had my umbrellas but because it was notified that it was supposed to rain sunday he didnt think it would... hahahaha good times..

It is hard to keep up the physicality on the mission. I am trying to by lifting my laundry balde (cubeta) with water and things on top of it. Doin push ups and also my abs...i need to start doing something or it wont look pretty when i returen home... hahaha

That is all the good funny stuff that went on. I have been edified greatly from the scriptures!! I hope that you all are reading because i love reading the scripturtes now! absolutley love them!!!! I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that the scruptures are the words of God!!

I want to tell you that i know, without a single doubt that he was and the Book of Mormon is true!!! The Church of Christ is on the earth and we are very blessed to be a part of it!!!

I pray for you all!! Peace be unto you all!! have fun Be safe, Do all that you are suppose to!!! Have fun to erik!!!

ps. Members tell me that since Erik is getting maried without me being there that erik shouldñ´t be allowed to come to my wedding... you might want to think about rescheduling erik ;) chiste

Love :) Elder Larson
