The Last Email

Well, here it is, the last email. This means that the end is eminent.

The World Cup began this week. We have permission to watch the Argentina games, if we have our open the mouths. This is a far better use of our time as we spend time with members and investigators instead of in the street with nobody.

As far as other things go, I'm doing alright. This will be an interesting week. On Tuesday we have a dinner appointment with my first convert. Should be fun.

Well, I guess I'll be seeing you all in about a week and a half.

Let the Penultimate Adventure Begin

So, it's the beginning of my second to last week. Fairly exciting. We have one perspective baptism. It is the grandson of the other Elders' landlord. He recently started coming back to Church since his wife died. At least we have some motivation to work.

My companion and I have been analyzing our experiences the last two years. We have decided that there is a great difference between missionaries in South America South and missionaries elsewhere. One of those is the members. We have virtually no help from the members. That means that we have far more exposure to the common people, or the non-elite. (The elite being the Lord's elite) This has made us very tired of the people.

As for the coat, it was big, heavy, took up a lot of room, and was starting to break, so I left it in Malargüe for some poor Elder without a big coat for the cold winter there.

Many thanks for the flight info. I am very glad to be on only two flights.
