¡What a week!

Hola everybody!
     Sounds like everybody is doing great! Jess, Im so glad to hear how great you doing and fast you are healing up. The Lord truly is a God of miracles, and your accident is just another example of that! Im sure its been tough being stuck in your pench all day, but you are a strong girl. Thats for sure!! Sounds like the funeral for Brother Nogales went super well! It will be tough for the family, but im glad to hear that they have so much love and support! And another accident in the ward?! Holy cow! But im so glad to hear that everybody will be ok and will recover! So I didnt even know that Amanda was pregnant at one point, let alone has the baby. But that is awesome and must be so much fun for Preston and her! Sounds like holoween was super fun! Ty and levi looked so cute as fix it felix and wreck it ralph haha. Unfortunatly, Argentina doesnt celebrate it here. So it was just a routine day for us. It was wierd, we didnt even realize that it was holoween until that night when we were back in the pench. I looked at the calander and it me, it is the 31st. That means it´s holoween haha. Grandma and Grandpa, I got your package this week. Thank you so much for the music and sweets. Its always so great to get some real candy form the states haha! Thats one thing that Argentina lacks! And basketball season starts up this week. That will be super fun for the girls! Elder Andrew Miller, I seriously couldnt stop laughing about your barn raising. Everone here was probably just thinking ´´who is the gringo haha´´. But Iv always wanted to participate in one of those, so I am a little jealous about that haha! And Dad, sounds like U of A should have a good basketball season. You can keep me a little updated on that haha! But I have my oen season here right now!
     Well, the first week of training went pretty well! I was way nervous for it, but it has been way crazy to see how much better my spanish is than I thought. And it has been a huge blessing, because now I I seriously have to trust in the Lord every second of the day since my spanish still isnt that great! But Elder Evans is doing good, slowly learning a little more spanish each day! The first transfer is always difficult though, especially when you are learning a language haha!
    We have a family in our brach, Familia Lucero. But they are so awesome, and basically just adopt the missionaries. But we had lunch with them on Tuesday, and after we ate Hermano Lucero was like ´´time for dessert´´. And knowing me, you can bet I was excited to hear those words. But instead he had us take out our scriptures and each share a little something. But this family is just so humble and such a great family. But Hermano Lucero was so right. The scriptures truly are like our dessert. It sweetens our lives so much, and we dont even have to wait until after dinner to use them haha!
     This past weekend we had stake conference. So we traveled to our stake center in San Rafael (2 hour bus ride). But it was so awesome. First of all its always so fun to see all of the other missionaries there. Then we got to hear from Presidente Avila and then also Elder Sala, a member of the 70, and then Elder Zeballo, for the presidency of the Area South America South. So it was so awesome and so much fun!
      Patricia is still doing great! We had a lesson with her this week about the importance of family home evening, and she has started holding it in her home with her daughter and with her husband as well. So we are hoping that this can touch the heart of her husband a little bit and they can get married.
      We also found another golden investigator this week. It was a reference from a family in the branch. But his name is Tito Garcia. He is like 67, and super funny, kind of a little femi as well haha! But we had two lessons with him last week. The only problem is that he smokes 3 packs of cigarettes every day. But it´s ok, he is determined to quit and we have another lesson with him him later today after P-day.
      Well, thank you all so much for everything. I can feel all of your love and prayers everyday as we were are biking through the blazing heat!! I cant wait to hear from you next week! Take care, please lets take a nice long breaks from accidents at home ok haha! I love you all so much!!
