Happy Halloween from Comodoro Rivadavia Argentina!

Good morning family and friends!

Happy Halloween to all those back home, I'll be with you again for the next! Here they don't celebrate Halloween or thanksgiving or St. Patrick's Day, but they do have the Day of the Children. Anyways, I'd love to see all of your costumes because I love Halloween and really miss it.

This week was different. Not in terms of what we did because we walked a whole ton like always, but more in people's responses. We have found a lot of people that are worried about or have seen spirits. I'll just say it was a strange week in terms of the things we've heard.

Other than that, we both have been sick with a cold... One day is super hot and sunny, and the next is freezing cold and windy.

The family Centurion that we are teaching came to church again this Sunday! Now Tamara only needs to be taught the rest of the  lessons! When we asked why she wanted to get baptized, she said she wanted the Holy Ghost. We finally got her to start reading the Book of Mormon again, but she has a hard time understanding it.

There are so many amazing people we are teaching. I love the mission, regardless of how difficult it is...

Best wishes for those back home! Eat some candy for me!

Love, Elder Bartlett

1-4) We went to Rada Tilly last P-day and saw sea lions!

5-6) We had an asado for Argentine Mother's Day!

7) We shoveled some really nasty above ground sewage for service. Yay!

I'm Back!

Dearest Family and Friends,

I apologize for the lack of information, or lack of email! The mission is going crazy and there are a lot of things on my mind. Going crazy in the sense that the work of the Lord is moving forward! So many miracles are happening that I can't write them all, but I'll give you a few!

We are finding so many people to teach! It is difficult to find them actually in their homes, but there are a lot! The law of fast continues being tried and true... as soon as we ended our fast everything picked up, people started actually talking to us! Thank you for your prayers at home, they are being answered. We are teaching several families that are preparing for baptism or preparing to come back to the church after many years, and I feel VERY strongly the Spirit guiding me. It is so amazing.

Sorry I forgot my camera today... next week I'll have pictures of Elder Teixeira! Super awesome elder ready to teach, testify, and baptize!

Love all you back home,

Elder Bartlett

Guess who's training?

My companion, querido Elder Souza, is going to Rawson! My old area! We didn't think anything would change... But the Lord has spoken. He also said that I am going to have charge of a brand-new, shiny Elder! I'll have more information on Thursday, I think I get more time to write because I have to leave now! Talk to you all later!
