May 24, 2010 New companion: Elder Scoville ~ 600 inactivies?

Hola Family!
My companion is incredible! I love him already! He is an obedient Elder and excited to work and I love it! We`re going to have a good time in Palmira.
Elder Scoville is from El Dorado Hills, California and attended the same High School as Austin Collie. He said that he was really good. He is a new Elder, in his third transfer of the mission and speaks spanish really well and has an incredible attitude and desire to do right. I love him! We are working hard, being obedient and looking for ways to improve every day.

As you know, every day in an adventure and there are new things to do every day. The ward is great! There are about 20 strong members and the rest are inactives 600+ people. So we have our work cut out for us. I feel that the best thing for this district to do is to focus on the inactive members. That is what we are going to do, and that is what we have to do. I feel we will have a lot of success here. We are being obedient and trying hard

Well, Palmira really isn`t the big city, but it is a big city compared to General Alvear. I`m still getting to know the area, but there is an awesome panaderia right around the corner that I love and have already been to three times. It`s pretty incredible, I need to stop going. Anyway, back to the point.

Today was a pretty incredible day! We went to Mendoza, the big city and played around getting documents done went shopping, I bought a new vest for winter that is coming up. It`s hace frio here in Palmira and I will enjoy my sweater. Anyway, it`s good to tell everyone that things are going well and that I love you all.
Until next week, I love you!

Elder Hoglund
