Dear Family,

How is everybody doing this week? Thank you for the messages and for your support. Thank you all for writing. I am happy that you had a good experience with your aunt Dad, and that really shows how blessed we are for being in the Gospel and knowing these great gospel truths. I know that your aunt is resting from all of the griefs and pains of the world that she had been experiencing. 
Congradulations Hans!! That is way cool that you are an asistant to the president. That means that you are a great missionary and that your President has alot of confidence in you, and even more, the Lord has alot of confidence in you. I am happy that you are having fun and that you have that new responsability. Keep up the good work!!
That is way cool that you, mom and dad, were able to go up to the mountains and spend time with grandad and grandma. It has been about a year and a half since i have seen a mountian so i can just imagine the beautiful white mountains. I love nature and i love to ponder upon the beautiful creations of our Father in Heaven! In fact, where i am at there arent even hills, so i miss seeing mountains, but there are some pretty amazing fields here.
This week we were just working like always. It rained and there are very few paved streets here, so the mud is a little coplicated, but it is all good. We have been teaching several people and i have realized that love is really important in the work. I knew that it was and i want ot help the people here because i love them. This week we were talking to a lady that we have been teaching for a week, but she always refuses to be baptized. i felt alot of love for her this last lesson that we had because she doesnt understand, but has felt the spirit before. I felt a little sad that she hasnt accepted baptism yet, but i know with a little more effort , she will get there. 
Thank you for all that you do!! I love you all and you are always in my prayers!! I am happy and i am very grateful to be in the mission and to be able to help out the people of Argentina gain salvation. I hope that you all have a good week!!! Be safe and always remember to read and pray!!

Love Elder Shane Larson
