Hey Famjam,

I just want to let you know how everything's going.  My mom said my last two letters have been super, super rushed, because I have been so busy.  That is good, because "time flies when you're working hard!"  (Quote from my Mom.)  

I'm in the place that we write. I just wanted to let you know how my area is right now.  I'm in Moron, which is a pretty ghetto, inner city place--but it's super cool!  Our ward is just absolutely fantastic.  Our bishop is from Uruguay and he's insane and we love him!  The world cup of futbol is going on right now and everyone is obsessed because of that.  It is hard to teach people. Our bishop is also obsessed with it and he talked about Uruguay being in the world cup in Sacrament meeting.  He talked about yelling so much he couldn't talk.  He was yelling over the goal Uruguay made.  We have a ton of super awesome families in our ward right now.  They're super capo!  I can't even describe them, they are just super cool and they work hard.  I don't know, we've just had a great time so far.

One of our investigators this week, finally made the decision to be baptized, and she's super capo. (I don't know any other words.  Oh my goodness, I don't know any other words besides capo.)  She finally made the decision to get baptized this Saturday.  Our bishop was so happy when he heard we had committed her to baptism.  He kissed us!  He kissed my companion on the nose and he kissed me on the cheek really hard.  He's huge!  Our bishop is 6'6 or 6'7.  I've never seen an Argentine as big as him.  He's really, smart, really capo and really crazy!  He's so fun!  

We've made good friends with the ward, they're all really cool.  I've been working really hard this week and we've found a lot of new people.  It's a great area, but no one had been working hard before I got here.  We've got to get the area going again. There are a ton of great people here, they just have to be found.  

I love you guys and I hope you're all reading your Book of Mormon--at the least fifteen minutes a day.  If you're not, I challenge you to do that and if you're not a member, I still challenge you to do that.  Read your Book of Mormon every day for fifteen minutes.  If you don't have one, ask any Mormon and they'll give it to you.  I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. 

 I love you all.  Have a good day!

Bye

Haha just kidding pretty normal, hard work, lots of rejection, and a few miracles :)
