   Hello everybody!! I hope you all are grateful for Thanksgiving, because I sure miss it haha! But now worries, being here in the missions is worth every second of it. Just make to sure to eat lots and lots of pie for me! Tan Man, I am also pretty jealous that you got to meet Lute Olsen. There arent very many coaches out there like that man. Jordy and Naes, way to go with spirit days and sports! And Jordan, you looked just like Buddy the Elf haha! Dad, college football is sounded super exciting! Mom, I look forward to teaching seminary with you and we can be companions haha. The best companion ever! Wow it is crazy to hear how everybody is coming home now! But who look is the lucky to be here, this guy!!!
    Well this was another incredible week! To begin, yesterday was the primary program here in Pringles. And I got to be the lucky one to play the piano for them (mostly because i am the only one who plays haha!. But it is just amazing to see how strong and powerful these children. Also a huge example of Christs teaching about how we need to humble ourselves and become like little children to obtain the kingdom of God! Sure, at times they are a little rowdy and crazy, but they are even more pure and special!
    So Darío is doing great! He hasnt smoked since we taught him the word of wisdom, which was about a week ago. So everything is looking good towards his baptism on Saturday. He just needs to keep going strong during this week. So please keep those prayers coming. I know they are helping him so much, along with Elder Rabanales and I! We werent able to see Javier and Estefani this week because of the work schedule of Javier. So we havent been able to really verify with them and see how they are doing. But hopefully this week! But we found another family this week, Familia Jofré/Diaz (kind of a mixed family), through a very interesting experiance haha! On thursday we were working in a part of our area on the outskirts of the city. It is the more poorer part of our area. But we were looking for the house of an inactive family. But a pretty sketchy looking guy named Cristain Jofré, stepped in front of us asking us who we were and what we do. To help you picture it a little better he has a pretty crazy limp (later we found out he had been shot in the leg last week haha) and a huge scar going down from his ear to his chin. So we explained to him about us as missionaries and after he told us ´´I knew you were specail. I need your help because I want to change and be better´´. So Cristian took us to his house and as we entered 3 more guys were in there waiting for us, all of them looking just like Cristain. One had this big white patch over his eye and another had his arm all wrapped up. Long story short, we sat down with all four of them and the Mom of Cristian, and we taught them all. All of them are tired of how they are living, filled with theft and drugs, and truly want to change. Then on Saturday, we were able to teach Cristain again where when we asked how he was he answered saying ´´man, i have been so good since you guys passed by´´. And at the end of the lesson he asked us ´´so what do I need to do to get baptised?´´. So now he is working towards a baptismal date on the 27th of December. It will definatly be a long repentence process for him, but he is willing and able! What a blessing to be part of such a change in somebody!
    The last miracle of the week happened yesterday during church. Bishop Rojas called us into his office along with an older couple that were recently called as ward missinonaries, Hermano and Hermana Coco. He asked us to open up a new section of San Luis to the gospel, called Quines. It is about a 3 hour drive from here in Pringles, so pretty far. There is one family, the Familia Rosa, that live there in Quines. They make the 3 hour drive every other sunday to come to church. So now Hermano and Hermana Coco have been specailly called to help us get out to Quines where missionaries have never worked before. We are seriously so excited to head out there. Literaly just like little kids on Christmas morning. What a special blessing to open a brand new area like this. Who knows, maybe one day in the future there will be a branch or ward there in Quines!
    Well, things are going great here in San Luis, and so much of this success is coming from all of your prayers for us. Thank you so much for everything you do. I love you all and hope you have a great week!
