This week has been an off week for me. You know those days where you wake up and it just feels like you are moving through water? And then everything seems to move at that speed. It was a interesting feeling week. Everything seemed to have a sway or a spin to it. Haha, I was a bit Space Cadetish this week. Not to sure why.

But the week was good none the less, We had divisions with Elder Balcaza, my former companion,  It was a wonderful experience to see and hear Elder Balcaza Bear his testimony with the Arana Gonzalo Family. It was a wonderful experience to see how much they have grown through the Eyes of elder Balcaza.

We received a reference from Victor, a returned missionary in our ward. We were fairly hesitant in contacting the house. I'm not sure what it is, but I can contact a random house easily and with out fear. But when we know that the person we are about to talk to has a mutual friend. There is a perceivable pressure that is added to the situation. We walked up to the house and began talking with a very animated Hugo Basket (Probably misspelled) He and Victor have been friends since childhood and have always been very close. Hugo is very religious and has been attending a Prayer Circul for the last 6 months, We invited him to church this coming Sunday based on the fact of how much he respected the focus that the family receives from the church, however, he wasn't able to make it the which was a let down. He told us later that his religious life revolves around his wife and we haven't been able to meet with her yet. But we have been told she is super nice. Just hoping we will be able to catch her some time and talk to her!

But that reference will have to be handed off to the next elders in the area. I am being transferred to Oberá Argentina as of tomorrow (Tuesday) And also Elder Baldeon will be being transferred and they will be ¨white washing¨ the area. Basically meaning that two elders new to the area will be coming in. My new companion is going to be Elder Cross.

More information about my new area next week!
