Wow I think I am regretting ever wanted to come to Argentina so bad. I am really missing the paraguayan humbleness, dirtiness and especially the language. I didnt really realize how much I loved being able to speak a little bit of guarani hear and there. The people here are a lot richer and cleaner, but they are also ruder and closed off. When I got here to my area it was left a mess....I feel like I am cleaning up someone elses disaster. The ward is super small and there are more than 300 non members...only 20 active. I have been pretty stressed because once again I am training and I am starting out at ground zero in the area again...another church to build up again.the misionaries before didnt quite do what they were supposed to so I feel like no one has confidence in them. We are slowly gaining it back. My companion is from Idaho and is super cute. She sometimes gets a little too worried and takes it out on me but I am really just trying not to get angry and put myself in her shoes. She speaks great spanish for only have 6 weeks in the mission! But she doesnt have much confidence with it yet. The spanish is kind of harder here because they speak in a different accent and definitely a lot faster! I am slowly getting used it.
