June 11, 2012

Finally got some photos over to you. Hope they sent. Now I dont have to much to
time to write haha. But Im glad to hear things are good at home! For the
weather, it was really nice the first couple weeks we were here, but this week
got really cold! haha. The members have been telling us it is suppose to warm
back up though to where it was, so that will be nice.
Its so hard for me to remember my week because we do so much! haha. But the
highlight was Ayulens baptism. A lot of members showed up and it just turned
out well. Hermana Gonzalez gave a talk on Baptism and Hermano Godoy spoke on
the Spirit. Some of the young girls in the ward sang a special musical hymn and
we had empanadas and cake afterwards. Ayulens parents came to the baptism and
really liked the service and church and were going to start teaching soon.
Hopefully that will go well.
Other then that the week was just a regular week. Elder McGarry and I played
basketball today, that was a good time! Even though Im horrible at it haha. Tonight
were making dinner for the Gauna family, kind of scared because were not the
best cooks! haha. But Im sure itll be alright. Hermano Gauna is a member but
his kids havent been baptised and confirmed yet so we hope to get to know them
a little bit more so we can begin teaching them. Hope it goes well!
Elder McGarry has some crazy bug living in his foot! I wont tell you how he has
to get ride of it because its pretty gross haha, but, just thought Id share.
Dad I forgot to answer your question last week! We definitely do not get to
take Ciesta haha. Its difficult to get work done then because literally
everyone in town goes inside for about 3 hours, all the stores close and nobody
is out, its pretty weird!
Things I miss: Dr. Pepper! none of it here. Chipotle. Craving it like crazy!
Hot Water. We have to boil water to bathe with because our water heater is
currently broken! Sucks.
Things are fine though! Just staying focused and worked hard. We have District
Meeting in Posades tomorrow, so another bus ride.
Alright, well I love you all! Hope everything is good. Talk to you next week.

build a nice chapel. Its nice inside!

Hi Family!
Alright, I´ll try to answer questions and give you all a little more
info. I would appreciate if maybe you guys could send like 1 big email
a week from both of you, just because it takes up a lot of my time to
read them all.
Ituzaingo is really cool. I´ve learned a little more about it this
past week. It´s a big vacation spot! A lot of people from Argentina
come here for summer to hangout along the river, it sounded like you
guys figure that out when you looked it up online.
There is so much to talk about I can´t even think of everything so I´m
going to tell you the important stuff. We already had a baptism! A
part member family had there 10 year old son baptised along with there
8 year old son. I baptised Ismael and Elder McGarry baptised Noel.
There the Vazquez family and they are relly cool people! Also, We have
a baptism schedule for this coming saturday. A you girl named Ayulen
is getting baptised, she was taught by the sister missionaries before
and we finished up teaching her the lessons. She is very excited, she
made here own inivitation and gave them to us to pass out to the
members here.
Ituzaingo actually has a very nice church building! I´ll snap a
picture of it and send it soon.
President Hayman is an awesome mission president, when we were in
Resistencia at his house and he explained the reason we have so much
success in this mission is because we have the hardest working
missionaries and the Lord has prepared the hearts of the people at
this time, and it´s true! The people here love talking to us and are
very receptive to the message of Christ and the Gospel.
I´m have trouble remembing a lot of questions! So I apologize if I
dont answer all of them. Elder McGarry and I have been working hard
and I´ve been trying as hard as I can to learn this language. It´s
been very difficult but I know that it will come with time, we pray
for the gift of tounges each day. We have a zone confrenence on
Wednesday and I´ll get to see some of my old district from the MTC so
I´m excited for that!
Anyways, I hope everything is good at home! Sorry my letters are short
but we dont get much time to write.
We´re just teaching a lot for now and trying to grow this small
branch. Baptism on my first full week of being a missionary, not to
bad if I say so myself! haha. We´re going to keep up the hard work
Love you all! Talk to you next week.
Elder Deniston.
