Sorry I didn't write last week. Pday adventures took up a lot of time. 

Everything has been pretty normal on this side of the earth. I am currently in Necochea for pday and prepping for the zone conference we have here tomorrow. Last week after a couple nice days of work in our area, we traveled to Mar del Plata for a zone conference with the missionaries as well as a Stake Conference presided by Elder Bragg and Elder Salas. Both went well. I didn't feel quite as "in the zone" as usual this last zone conference, but the stake conference was really cool. I loved the messages shared by President and Sister Cifuentes, Elder Salas, and Elder Bragg. They bring such an excitement to the work and make me just want to stay here another two years. 

Soo updates. Because of traveling and schedule clashes, we haven't seen Piru for like a week and a half. We keep trying to teach her, but she's either never home or we aren't in town. Shoot! We're hoping we can see her this week after we get back from Necochea. That lady needs to get baptized already cause she's been going to church for more than a month and she's progressing a lot. 
Besides Piru, we lost our investigator Alan because he became a full time truck driver. The dumb part is that he doesn't stay put so we can't even refer him to other missionaries. Shoot! Byyyye Alan :(
We've been tearing through the area book lately and have found some great new investigators. Updates to come as we see more progress from some appointments this week.

I love this work and the blessing I have to be here with these people.

Con amor,
Elder Jolley

Finally pulled off a round of golf for pday! Have been wanting to do this for a while, but the golf course is Bahia is closed on Mondays. Luckilyyy I just happended to be in Necochea today where golf is half off on Mondays! What a fun time with a great group of guys. For not having golfed consistently in more than three years, I was connecting pretty well today.

 Had something stuck in my tooth... :)

 The taxi drivers helped us find a lunch spot on the way home. A nice choripan with some salsa criolla on top. Not a bad way to finish a solid pday!
