Down to one!!!

   Well, I have felt super wierd this past week. Lots and lots of change. But hey, change is good! Jess, welcome home!! And what is your email? Sounds like you did so good at your homecaming. Even with all of the british words haha! Sounded like a great time with all of the family as well. Oh and i didnt recieve any of the pictures at the airport or anything, so if somebody could please try sending those again that would be wonderful! Dad, i bet that was a special experience for you getting to release your own daughter. Maybe we can just send President Kartchner on a little trip when i come home as well!! 
   Well I am now here in my area of Pringles, San Luis. San Luis is very different than any where else i have served. It is all city and a lot cleaner than San Juan and Mendoza. But it is a great place and i love it so far. It was a pretty crazy week last week. We were just always running around having to do something. Thursday night we had to pick up four missionaries from the bus station at 1:30 in the morning since they had the special trainers meeting in Mendoza and then the 5 hour bus ride afterwards. But it has been super good. It is a big change being a Zone Leader, but nothing i cant handle. The area is great here. We share the ward with the Sister Training Leaders, and the ward is absolutely great. It is actually the biggest ward in the mission. Still only about 130 active members, but way bigger than some others. Like in Chimbas we would have about 30-40 asistences each week! So i am here with Elder Olaya from Manizales Colombia. Tj, where is your Mom from? But Elder Olaya has been just great. I got to know him pretty well when he was in my first district here in Argentina in Maipu. So it has been way fun with him and he is probably the hardest working missionary that i know here in the missionary. So i am way excited to keep working with him. We are working with a lot of investigators but the problem is none of them arent really progressing. They have desires to learn more, but not really to act upon anything. But that is alright, we both are really excited to work a ton and get them all progressing. Plus we also found some awesome people this past week that could be golden if we can get in with them!
   This week we got to do some service for the husband of one our investigators husband. Her husband, Davíd, has always been kind of a tough one and wouldnt talk to us. But he excepted our invitation of service. So we went to work with him where we built bricks...or blocks, i forget which one they would be called haha! But afterwards he allowed us to share a message with him. He was still pretty tough to teach because he doesnt really believe in a lot of religious things, but the service was at least able to soften his heart enough to listen!
    We also found a man on Saturday named Sergio. He ended up being a member from farther up North who moved down here to San Luis to find work. But he has a lot of desires to come back to the church. We met with him and had a deep lesson with him, kind of having to teach with tough love. But in the end we were able to set up some solid goals with him to help him overcome a few things and return back to church fully prepared to embraze it! 
    Well we are super ready and excited to work this week. We have a mission wide conference with Elder Viñez of the 70 and lots of citas set up. It will be a good one! Thank you all so much for everything. I love you all so much and have a great week!
