It's Cold and Snowy!

Thanks for all of your letters this week. They meant a lot for me. This week has been really good and it just got better when I read your letters. This has been a good area so far. I have been getting to know it and I am getting along spectacularly with my companion. He is a great kid. He’s from Blackfoot, Idaho; or close thereabouts. I’ve attached a picture of him. He reminds me a little bit of Michael. Ha-ha. But yeah, we get along good.

Elder Carter

Church yesterday also went well. We had a visit from the stake president here in Tucumán and he did a little chat after church with the ward council and us. Apparently that was a result of something that the last elder that was here did. So we are recovering from some lack of confidence issues and such on the part of the members towards the missionaries. But things are going well. It is just a matter of working like crazy so that they can see that we are different. I really like the ward. It is smaller, but it has good members and they actually have callings unlike the last area so the load is just a little bit lighter.

We have found some way cool people in the last week. Given, they are newbie’s, but they seem really promising. We also received a really cool reference from a member of another ward here in Tucumán, so we have really good people to teach and I am really excited. We are working hard and have good numbers, good people, and I am happy. Really that is all I can say, the only way to explain it. There are still things that I am working on but I am progressing. I have dropped some bad habits and am now working on others. But all in all I am extremely well.

Sorry if there are a lot of typos in this email, the keyboard isn’t great and my fingers are extremely cold. [Mom cleaned up the email!] That is the other thing. The weather took a cold turn last week. It has been snowing for a couple of days and it is still really cold. Seems like I have all the luck, it is the first time in 90 years that it has snowed here. Ha-ha... and about the travel plans. They sound good; I’ll work on filling out the schedule and all that. On Tuesday morning I am free to go whenever you want to pick me up. If you want to see me on Monday night I think that you can as well. What day are you planning on getting here? I would suggest Monday so you can get over the jet lag and whatnot from the trip. But yeah, I will be thinking about all of that and I will let you know. Thanks for all your good advice guys and for your love. I love you all. Take care. CHAUUUU!!
