Week 18 in Buena Vista

Rumors of a transfer are coming!  Everybody make your best guess!

Subject: “Can I give you my word as a Spaniard?”

No good! I've known too many Spaniards!

Yeah, I still can't seem to get onto the family server, so it's another picture-less week, I guess. Except that I might attach one or two to this email to make up for it.

Anyway, I have no incredible stories from this week. It's been a pretty calm week as far as missionary work goes. We lost a couple investigators, like the Siliezar family, but nobody else was very eventful.

This week was very much geared toward members and such. Carlos, one member that helps us a lot, invited us to eat lunch every day with him, which is fantastic. He's a great cook. And almost every night we had dinner with members. I was definitely not complaining about that.
On Friday I went on interchanges with Elder Astin in Casa Blanca, which was incredibly fun. He has the same amount of time on the mission as I do, so it was fun to work with and talk to him again. He's also my zone leader, which is awesome.

Elder Huaman called me on New Years Eve from Belize to wish me a Happy New Year. That was a lot of fun.

And it looks like there will be no pictures this week. My camera won't connect for some reason. That's lame.

Carlos also came over to our house on New Years, and since we couldn't set off fireworks we watched him do it. And then we played Uno. It was fun.

Okay, everyone in my zone has finished writing, and I am almost out of time. I just have not been able to think of anything this entire email, so it's probably ranked number 2 or 3 on my lamest weekly emails. Sorry about that.

Yeah, that's about it. I started a new paragraph hoping that I would have something to say by the time I started typing, but I don't. Oh! But I did just remember that I have changes on Wednesday, but we still don't know where I'm going. That'll be exciting for next week! You should all place bets of where I'm going. I figure your guesses will be about as accurate as a drunk game of pin the tail on the donkey, but it might be fun. How about this: If somebody can succesfully guess where I'm going (the city at least) before next week, I will buy them some kind of El Salvador souvenir. That should make things interesting. NOTE: My mission only covers the departments of Santa Ana, Ahuachapan, and Sonsonate. That'll narrow things down. Also, I'm not going to Belize.

That's all I've got for this week. I love you all, and it was good to hear that Lindsay only lost like $500 with the business. What's $500 anyway? A small, broken-down car? Five days at Disneyland? Pocket change.
