Not so weekly reprt of a part time tie vender

Well this past week was super cool. We still have a mountain of ties in the room I call the closet. the pile is still huge, and I keep finding ties that i like. I have found and kept three snoopy ties and a cola tie. They are awesome, I will try and get a good picture. Today we went bowling, and I found out that am pretty good. I got second the first round but last the second round. It was fun. The one thing that I have missed from the states (except from you guys, come on) is cheese. Real yellow graded cheese. To make a quesadilla  I have to cut slices off a small block of some cheese that I don't even know. 
This week was good, we do nothing but contacts, but we have two people that we are super hopeful for. one of them works at the airport so he has a weird schedule and the other one is kinda old so the last time we went over he was in pain. oh well, the time will come. The language is getting better though, I can hold my own in a slow and small conversation. But, such is life. 
Love you all and hope you have an awesome week.
Love, Elder Whetten

Diana - October 6, 2014

  Well this week was really good I love the fall so much and I love being so close to the ocean! it is really the most beautiful thing i have ever seen. We where able to watch "Meet the Mormons" and i want all of you to see it!! it is such a great movie I seriously watch it everyday when i get home! 
 We also had a really good dinner probably the best dinner i will ever eat in my life. We has T bone stake made by the best cook i have ever met we had caviar (salmon fish eggs) very different but good. It was the most expensive meal i have ever had and it was AMAZING!!!!! 
 Conference was so good!! I gained so much from it!! I am so excited to go back and read it all!! It was so cool i was sitting there thinking about all of you and i realized that for a moment all of us jason and kelsey mom dad and the girls jesse and anthony and me. We were all doing the same thing at almost the same time listening to the Prophet of the world.  It just made me really happy to think that our family is eternal in the one true church and as long as we all do our part we will all make it together " no empty chairs" I love you all so much and i am so glad to be apart of such a great gospel that believes in order and hard work and love and charity!! I know that this is the true church of God in these the Latter days!!! I hope all of you have a great week!!

so this week was one of the best Ive had here in la cumbre! we got to see a lot of things, pig farms, chicken farms, some really funny exchanges, zone activities and the best par general Conference!!! the week with my companion and i have really started getting along lately and in turn has helped the work, who would've known:P i think in the beginning we were both looking at how completely different we were when i think it was more like we are just really similar! we noticed this and immediately did whatever we could to fix it, and it worked! we now have about 20 possible investigators and one with a baptismal date! the only problem that we have now is the fact that argentines don't believe in marriage:P almost all the people we find aren't married so it just takes a little more time to get them ready but the work is amazing! this week was a really good time to get to know my companion and also the zone. we got to spend a little more time together for the conference so it was legit. but the conference really touched me like never before and i was able to get more out of it. in the week as we invited the less actives and investigators to go to the conference with a prayer and a question, i realized i hadn't yet done that. so i did what we had been telling everyone else to do i entered the conference with a prayer, and have never received more revelation like i did this weekend. my testimony has been strengthened and i realize once again that i still have a long way to go, but that I'm also doing a pretty dang good job. i think the things that i found out this weekend will help me with the next 6 months of life:) conference came and went way too fast! but now we must take what we heard and first apply it to ourselves, or make sure that  our oxygen mask is on before we worry about others:P I've realized that most of the time i have the mask on but that i forget to breathe sometimes haha i gets that's how life is. i love you all!!!
