Hard times in the mission field

Well, this was an interesting week....
So, Malvina was going to get baptised, right, well, she can't. Her home situation (think...concentration camp and you're about there) makes her not able to come to church or be baptised until she gets out in January and moves to Bahia Blanca. Yeah, we're all looking forward to it.
No progress with anyone else, yeah, it's kinda odd. We had so many people say we could come buy this week that we kinda got overloaded and weren't able to focus on just a few people as usual. This is good, I really like having a bigger workload. We also went out to the tiny little town 30 minutes out (it's 7 x 7 blocks) and found 6 people in a few hours that are awesome. The church really isn't known out there (nor are the Jehovah's Witnesses or anything) and it was like a clean slate to work with. We are the first missionaries to go out there in...well, along time, I'm not sure exactle how long.
Yeah, a long week of walking alot, talking to alot of people, and many many shut doors. But, no guns, dog bites, or yelling.
Pday was good, we had a great chicken lunch, played basketball, yeah. 
Elder Ramirez is going to Bahia to get his Pat. Blessing, and is excited.
He is having problems, I'll let you know how it turns out, I wrote a long email to Pres this week.
Ok, finally got the photos up. There are...16 new ones, of the two baptisms, crossing the river, pictures of Patagones (awesome old spanish part of the city) and some random stuff)
Enjoy!
I honestly do love the people, Mom. Alot!

Ok, so we had to find a different internet place this week, and don't hace alot of time to email, but thanks for everything you wrote me, great to hear what's going on. I'm praying for all of you, thanks for the support, love, and the letters! I got the pack of letters this week, it was awesome.

Well, until next week, I love you!
Your missionary son and brother
Elder Joshua Wartena
