Dear Family and Friends,
Everything here is going pretty well if I may say so myself! My companion is pretty great. He is a great worker unlike the other two and very excited during teaching which is great. We work very hard and have fun. We live in a four person house which is pretty fun. Less long silences of boredom and more people to talk to. My companion is Argentinian so we don´t talk in English but it is great. I am learning quite a bit and there in another gringo in the house so we can talk in English. Overall the house, companionship goes well but the work is rough. I replaced the district leader in our area and the district leader had been there for a long time and it is a hard area. Much more rich and harder to have success. There has only been four baptisms in this area for the last year whereas there was 11 in my last area.
We had a division which is where we switch for a day with the district leader and I went with his comp and he had Yugioh cards which was hilarious. I played Yugioh for the first time in like 8 years that day so that was cool. 
This last week there was a mtc for a day for the youth in Uruguay and the President of our mission was there in our building for it. So people wanted to play soccer on the court and his car was in the way. So he gave my comp the keys to move it, but he was too scared and couldn´t drive the automatic so now I can say I drove the President´s car which is hilarious.
A dog also followed us home yesterday for two hours so he stayed within our gates for the night, gave him some food and water, and kicked him out this morning which was pretty funny too. Not too much happened this week. The area is great, comp is decent, house is good, zone is good, and district leader is awesome. Let me know if you want to know anything else!

Dear Family and Friends!
Hope all is well!
Right now all is well here. Pretty anxious again because I am being changed but I guess we will see how it goes. I apparently have a pretty strong personalitied companion from Argentina that doesn´t speak English so we will see how that goes. He sound very strange and pretty annoying from the sound of things. I am really quite anxious but we´ll see how it goes. I am going to a new area still in Montevideo but different zone so we will see how that goes. This was a pretty dang good change. Quite a few times of frustration but overall went quite well this change. Grateful to have had Elder Adney as a companion.
Work is going well and we had Miguel and Alison´s wedding finally and his baptism so that was great! I will send photos for sure.
It´s been warm recently but man, it has been pouring rain today. Not cool Uruguay. Not cool.
Tell the German missionary to wait for me and I will come back for her! I would love to marry a German girl hahaha.
Hope you guys enjoy the photos! 
Starting to enjoy the work a lot lot more but companions will always be a headache especially considering my love for being alone and introvert tendencies. 
It is really becoming a joy to teach people and see love and light come in their eyes and be able to joke around with them and make a difference. That is the cool part about being here. I always pray for you guys! Take care!
