I received the pictures from Sister Mabel (?), and thanks! You're adorable :) Too funny, I have to tell you--her email was all in Spanish, so I copied and pasted it into Google Translate, and this is
how it translated:
HELLO SISTER .. BREAST OF ELDER KOEVEN ..
WHAT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.??.
VERY WELL WANT YOU!
YOU CONTROL YOUR CHILD'S ORDER THE ELDER KOEVEN .. THESE PHOTOS!
HAVE A GREAT MISSIONARY IN YOUR FAMILY
HE IS A YOUNG GOOD!
I sent a special greeting ..!
FROM ARGENTINA TANDIL!
SISTER CINDY WITH JOY .. ENJOY THESE PHOTOS FROM YOUR CHILD .. ELDER KOEVEN!
SHARE LUNCH WITH YOUR CHILD AND YOUR PARTNER IN OUR HOME ...
MABEL A GREETING!
I think I get the gist! Although I'm not completely sure, at the end, if she is telling me that she had lunch with you and your companion at her house, or if she is inviting me and my husband for lunch whenever we are all in Tandil... :) Regardless, very fun, very nice, thank you!
Yes, you got the pictures! I always knew Google Translate was a little messed up, haha!
We are still looking for a house. The whole week I was looking for a house in our area, relatively close to the Church, but we could only find two little apartments and they weren't too great... and then we found out that two more Elders from a different area were going to live with us and that we needed to find a house for all of us.
Over 68 new missionaries came or are coming to the mission in the next month. And 4 of them are coming to Tandil, and 2 of them are going to live with us. So yeah, had to kind of start the search over again :p I'll tell ya, it's been difficult because we have to find a house in an area that will suit all of us. I guess if I have to keep walking 30 minutes to my area everyday, I'll do it, but if I can change that, I will... But yeah, we'll find something :)
It's good being District Leader... The biggest thing is just making sure the other Elders are good in their area and are doing ok :) It's fun.
Thanks a bunch for that money, Mom. And yeah I'll make sure that I don't just blow whatever you give me for that back up. I may need a little bit of money to send some letters, because it costs like two dollars a letter to send. But that's not too big of a deal right now... Terrific attendance :)
In the next couple of weeks we're going to go to some of the tourist sites here and I'll have some more pictures for you.
Haha yeah, tell Brian and Mark that I said Hi. I played Halo with them online...
Así que bueno, Muchísimas gracias y te quiero mucho.
Nos vemos Ma ma! Chao chao!!.
Oh and btw, I am still waiting for that pringles can and the other thing you sent me... we'll see what happens...
