Querida Familia-

It was great to see you guys! I cant believe that it was the last time that i´ll do skype with you. Im glad everyone is doing good. For those that didnt skype with me on sunday, i´ll share a lot bit of what happened last week. 

On thursday we had a Multi zone conference. An area Seventy came, Elder Salas. My companion and I had to leave at 1 in the morning on wednesday night to take a bus to Formosa capital. We got to Formosa at 5:30 in the morning and killed a few hours in a coffee shop waiting for the church to open. It was so nice to see so many of my mission friends. As well Elder Salas´s talk was really great and helped us me out a lot. Then at 5 pm. we took a bus back to Campo and got there at 12:30 at night. Then we woke up bright and early the next day to get ready to go to El Potrillo! We went to Potrillo from Friday to Saturday. We got all the members from el Potrillo together and had an activity. We taught all the priesthood holders how to consecrate oil and how to give blessings. Then we gave them all their own oil containers for their key chains and they all had to consecrate their own oil. It turned out super good, I dont think they could do it on their own yet because the spanish is hard for them but at least they understand the basics, and they could read out of "The Family" phamplets when they need to. Then we played a game with them where everyone stands in two lines facing each other and everyone puts their hands up against the person in front of them, and the first people in line have to run underneath everyones hands and when they get to the end of the line then the next people start running. And you do that in two different groups and see who wins. They LOVED it. At first they were hesitante to play games but after a couple rounds they were dying with laughter. It was really fun. Then we bought sodas and cookies and ate with them. It was a huge success. 

So, transfers came! I am still the branch president here in Estanislao del Campo! But, my companion left to Corrientes and I have a new companion now! His name is Elder Rossi. He is from Argentina, from a providence called Mendoza. HE IS AWESOME. Im so happy to have an argentino! He is super humble and nice and we are already great friends. Its going to be such a fun last transfer. I am so relieved. I will be training him to be the next branch president, so we will be busy going to all the members houses and Ill have to teach him how to do all the branch stuff. He has 6 months in the mission. I am stoked. 
​These are my zone leaders we´re at the multi zone, we´re all really good friends.

​This is a cool canal in El Potrillo, we come here to take a break and eat lunch! Looks kind of like a future painting of mine, right? 

​They built this fence around their meeting place, this is what we transported that one day in that diesel truck with that truck driver. They´re gonna plant stuff in here.  

​Mi gente en el Potrillo! This is where they have their sacrament meetings, underneath this tin roof!

Thats about it! I hope you have a great week! Dont get trunky!
