Mathew 15:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Another week. The weather down here in Argentina was absolutely awful! On Wednesday we were out working and then at like 6:00 in the evening it just started to rain so hard! We had absolutely no rain gear and we were only in short sleeve white shirts. No one would let us in and talk to us either! We basically spent 3 hours walking around in ghetto Merlo soaking wet. That is probably the closest I will ever get to swimming on the mission... I hope...
Then Thursday and Firday were even worse. It was so hot and humid it was ridiculous. Honestly probably the most uncomfortable I have ever been in my life. The humidity absolutely kills. At the end of the day when we got home, we were just dripping wet from sweat, hot sticky sweat. And even if we shower and change we cant do anything about it. Sleeping those nights was miserable.
On the bright side, the dog remote I brought down here (a remote that makes a high pitch sound that dogs don't like) is awesome. I use it every day!!! Everyone here has a dog and there are so many dogs everywhere. I just keep it in my pocket and walk down the streets and all the dogs run away like crazy. Sometimes the locals see me do it and the get pretty freaked out. They probably think I am Moses parting the Red Sea or something. 
On Saturday we had one of the traveling assistants work with us. His name is Elder Christensen and he is so stinking funny. He goes home at the end of this month and he is so excited to see this girl he has been emailing that he hasn't seen in like 5 years haha. He is some rodeo kid from Alaska and Idaho and his spanish has such a hard core southern accent. He definetly spiced up that day.
This week we also found a new family. They are so awesome. The were a refferal that some sister missionaries found on a train. They are so prepared. We have already taught them lesson one and we have an appointment with them tomorrow so we will see how it goes!
People here started to decorate for Christmas. It makes me so happy! I even got to hear a christmas song last week in the grocery store.... In english!!!!

Till next week

Elder Townsend
