Hey Family!!!!
I am glad to hear that everybody is doing well up there. that weather of hans looks like it is pretty cold. I am nit sure about the weather here becasue it changes soo quickly it is unbelievible.We can leave the pension with alot of wind and alot of clouds and then after 30 mins it is perfectly clear,then in another hour it loooks like it will rain. It is a little complicated, but is all good.
This week it seems like my companion and i have worked hard. We were ableto go on intercambios again and that was a good time. we had alot of success onthe exchange. it was pretty fun. time is goin by super fast that i cannot beleive it nor keep track of it. It seems like it just slips aways and then we are ending the week. We have been trying to find people to teach here and to invite to be baptized. Sometime the work gets hard and we get busy and i forget to do some things or there is not enough time to do all that i want to do. The mission is really helping me shape myself. I love the mission and i learn alot everyday. I am very happy that i have this opportunity to serve all these people and gain so many experiences-. Like hand said, it is also fun hearing about everbody else having success too. 
I love you all and i am thankful for the letters!!!!! Thanks a bunch dad for the genealogy and for the preisthood lineage!!! I love you all and hope that you are all doing good and that you area all safe!!! My prayers are with you all!!!!!1

Hey Family!!!!!
I am happy to hear from you all there at home and i am glad that you are all doing well!! I hape that you can feel better mom and that your knees can get a better as well. I didnt know that there was turkeys on our street. That is crazy!!! it seems like all of the exotic birds want to come live on our street.
Well, this last week went by really fast and even today is just flying by. I cannot belive it. last week we had exchanges and it didnt go too well until we had a great lesson filled with the spirit with the one girl that we found when elder combs was still here. The next day her mother called and told us not to come back because she is not a believer and doesnt want us to come back. it is sad, but i know the spirit was super strong in that lesson so i hope for the best.
On wednesday and for the rest of the week it was cloudy and it rained all afternoon wednesday. My comp and i got soaked. we had rain coats on and they did nother in protect us. that same night we had a meeting witht the mission pres., the stake pres. and the area 70. It was a fun meeting learning how we can improve the work here. I am happy that i have the privledge to work with some very sprirtual men.
Mothers day was yesterday here in Argentina so that was pretty cool. It is kinda weird because it is the only country that doesnt have mothers day in may i think.
The work is moving forward here. It is a little difficult finding people in this area, but we are still working at finding all the people willing to listen. It is fun doing this work, i love it!!!!
Well time is flying by super fast and it appears that everybody is busy there at home. thank you all for you notes and for the prayers!! They mean alot. Keep on being examples!!!! I love you all very very much!!!!!
Love Elder Shane
you all be safe now!! my prayers are with you!!

Hey Familly!!!!!!!!!!
How is everybody doing there at home? I hope that everyone had a good last week. I am busy wrking hard here with my companion.  we are working really hard in trying to find more people to be baptized. I work really well with Elder Molina and we are starting to do alot of good work here in tolosa. Other than that, everything here is going really well. Today we went to a catholic cathedral. It was super huge and had alot of "interesting" things inside of it. there was obviously an apostasy becasue some of thethings that are inside ot the huge building are against some commmandments that we recognize as being basic. it was a good experience though and had some very beautiful stained glass.
During this last week we had another meeting with the president. i love getting to know the president and i love getting to work with him and his wife. they are great people and it is really a joy to work with them. We are working good here.this last week there wasnt a whole lot of new things going on. My companion and i are really trying to work hard. He has 6 weeks less than me in the mission so we will both be ending around the same time, therefore we are really trying to step it up. I am happy that levi went over to give you guys the gifts and what not. Mom i still owe you a gift,more that a hug, but dont worry i shall return with a little something from the arg for you too!! That belt dad, is from the huge beaver look creature. it is the largest rodent inthe world, maybe you have seen it on discovery. I forget what it is called but here they call it a carpincho. I am also glad that you all liked the pics the stories and the candies. I love those candies too, but i have been trying to hold back so i can come home in good shape!! :D That was way cool that you got to meet elder combs. He was a great companion and i was able to learn alot from him, we also had our share of laughing and good times that i know he told you time is running short now, i have to get going.... i love you all and i hope that  you are all safe and doing well!!! I pray for you all always!!!

about school... i would like to start the next semester. The online things sounds great too because i would like to get a start on things and what not. I would also work in the warehouse because that was a good job. I really want to study hard though when i get back home. I have gained a love for learning and reading so i am excited about going to school. Other than that dad, i am not sure. I think the online sounds good until the next transfer because i want to start as soon as possible but i want to make sure that the credits can be trasferred.

Hey Family!!!
I am gald to hear that you all had a good week!! That is great!! Here it went well for me too!!! My companion and i are here working super hard together!!!  I love working with my companion because he has good desires and he is a hard worker, plus, we get along great! It has been pretty fun so far, and before when we were together it was super fun as well. As for this week in the work... we had a meeting for the leaders and we were watching conference on saturday and on sunday. That was grreat!!!! i love conference and i love hearing from the leaders. Pres. Monson is a really strong leader, and super funny as well. He is a great speaker and has a really sweet spirit as well, how lucky we are to live in this time with a prophet from God like Pres. Monson.
Other than that, it has been tranquilo. This letter seems soo small.. another cool thing that happened this week is that a family got baptized in between sessions yesterday. they are from a neibhoring ward so we were there to see tham and support them. It was super cool and it was super special too because of the special circumstance. We also did a service project cutting up a vine of a lady and helping her clean her backyard. It reminded me of you mom because she always does it herself and then we were there to help her reach the things that she couldnt reach and do.
In my Pdays i just usually hang out with the district or the zone sometimes. sometimes we play soccer or we watch a movie approved by the mission. We go out to eat and do the chores that are necessary. Other than that we write home and we relax. Then at 6 we leave to go work. I like chillin on pdays so that i can be well rested for the week. I have also picked up on drawing so that is fun as well.
Thank you soo much family for your support and for your prayers!!! They really do help! I love you all and my prayers are with you all!!! i hope that you all ahave a great week!!!!!!!!!!!
