Short and Simple, Sorry...

Dear Everyone,

Sorry for the delay in writing. I will explain, after I tell of a few other things. Well, we had a baptism on Sunday. We finished the transfer with 5 baptisms. We won for the most baptisms in the zone for the transfer. We got the mission tie for that. YAHOO! We are the best.

And as Dad perfectly guessed, we did finish the transfer this past Monday. AND, my companion left. I am with a new companion. But not just any companion.... I am training!! I have a newbie and that is my reason for not writing because everything has been really crazy. Monday I found out that I was training and then I had to stay with another elder in another area so it was really crazy. We didn’t have time to write. Yesterday I went to the trainers meeting to receive instruction and to receive my newbie! Well, my newbie is an American. Straight from northern Utah. Elder Warren!! He is about 8 inches taller than me and so it is kind of funny walking down the street. He is a really obedient missionary and it is going to be really great working with him. I am really excited that I get to train. He is learning Spanish little by little and is still in culture shock. I don’t have much more to say. I am just in a frenzy right now. Hopefully next week I have more to say. Just things are really crazy right now.

And just to let you guys know, well, more like, do you remember Virginia in 9 de Julio? Well, she got baptized this past Sunday also! The family Henderson did a little documentary of it and gave me a copy of it because she mentions my name in it. I was crying when they showed the video yesterday. It was really really cool to see. I am so happy for her. Anyway, that's all I have right now. I’ll talk to you all next week and Ill send some pictures of me and my new comp. Love ya!

  1. So Scott says that Argentines are a "little sketchy" on rules. Is this true?

  2. Hi Picketts!

    This is Elder Warren's mom, it was so great to get your phone call, I now know about 100% more than I did a few minutes ago! It was so sweet to read your son's positive words about his "newbie". They will be a great team! I hope to get a chance to chat soon!

    Thanks again,
    Diane Warren

  3. Hey Diane,
    Nice to see you found the blog. I'm sure our kids will make a great team. Allen is very easy to get along with and very friendly with people. There is a picture of the meetinghouse in the "older posts" at the bottom of the page. The branch is quite large, about 90 people every Sunday. Allen loves it because it is mostly made up of Bolivians (who do the manual work in Argentina) so they are very humble people. Feel free to call Jen anytime, she'll be glad to speak with you.
