Don't Cry for Me Argentina

Buenas Tardes,

Currently writing you all a little late this week in the middle of zone conferences from a city named Trenque Lauquen. Just got here a few hours ago after traveling from interviews in Santa Rosa, having finished the zone conference there yesterday morning. That went well and I was able to say goodbye to a few good friends including my "hijo" Elder Christensen.

It's been an awesome week here. It was especially fun to skype with the family this last Sunday. Happy Mother's Day again to my sweet mom. As much as I loved seeing the digital version of you, I remain biased towards the opportunity to be able to see you in person : )

I probably won't write an email this next Monday due to time restraints. I might send a few pictures if I get a sec. I'll give you quick sum up of the rest of my week. Tomorrow is the Trenque Lauquen zone conference, then Friday we are back in Bahia starting transfers and going out to lunch at Villa Ventana with President and Sister Cifuentes. Saturday we have an Asado with the Bishop and his family as well as more transfer duties, and hopefully time to visit investigators and converts (definitely the Laspina family, we might try to do dinner with them). Sunday we are going to Carlos and Piru's new house in Villa Harding Green with the Martinez family to have another Asado (blessings haha). Then Sunday night all the other "viejos" arrive here to Bahia and transfers begin! We then have interviews, a couple chats, and a dinner at the mission home on Monday, then Tuesday morning we hit the airport.

Before heading out I want to thank everyone who still reads this stuff for all the support and prayers from back home, they've been felt and appreciated. It's been an amazing two years out here serving my Savior and the people here. There is nothing more gratifying than to be His representative, and I earnestly look forward to future opportunities to do so.

I testify that Jesus is the Christ. I know He lives, and that because He lives, we too can live happily both now in this life, and eternally in the life to come.

Nos vemos,
Elder Jolley lV
