Hey everyone,

Sounds like everyone is doing well! I like the pics of homecoming! i sure hope the weather stays warm as well, its still pretty cold here sometimes which is really a surprise. but other than that im doing well!! haha and nobody said anything about byu this week so im guessing they must not have done so well! haha

This week was good! it was my last normal sunday and somehow the bishop found out so i had to speak this week! i feel like he was inspired because my topic was about the blessing of waking up and going to be early! i had planned to get back and be able to sleep in after quite a while of waking up early, but i think my plans have changed alittle! haha but it was a great chance to kind of say a good-by to the ward! i dont feel like the mission is ending, but at the same time i do because eveyone is reminding me! but i think the best of this week was when i spoke with the stake president, and i also served in his home ward about a year and a half ago, and he mentioned how much i had grown spiritually! i think i have as well, but its hard to tell if one has grown sometimes, but he testified of how one changes so much in the mission. The change i have undergone in the mission is huge, and it was so sweet to see that others have seen my spiritual growth!

Well im not sure if this is the last time i write or not, im not really sure how next monday will work, but if i find time i will try to write a quick note! i love you all so much and i want to thank you all for the love and support you send my way, and have for the past 2 years! i will see you all soon and be able to hug you!! that is going to be great! love you all again,

Love Elder Taysom

Ps. the pics are of me and that elder that looks like dad, and of the catholic church here in mar del plata!

Hey everyone,

Sounds like everyone is doing well! its crazy that there has been some flash flooding so big that it could take a couple of vans with it! i sure hope everything works out and everyone is ok! im still jealous of the heat you guys still have though, its pretty cold here!

This week was good! i felt a lot better and only have a slight cough now! we also had a baptism in the ward of a girl that i taught a couple of times, she was very doubtful about baptism, but she finally worked though it! we are also progressing with some investigators , but unfortunately the family we were teaching isnt progressing very well, but there is hope so we are going to keep up the good work! that is awesome that you guys heard from elder ballard, his talk sounded good and we kind of heard the same things here when elder hales and cook spoke! the church is really focusing on keeping the Sabbath day holy! 

Well i finally went golfing, and i need to practice!! haha but it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be, i had 4 par putts!!!! but 3 of them ended up as bogeys! and id rather not talk about the other 5 holes!! but i will be able to practice in a short while so im not too worried! tanner and dad cant have gotten that good! haha oh and dad i would love that job!! i was about to ask if there were opening like that at the hospital so sign me up please! well theres not much more than that going on! just excited to be here still and thanks for all your prayers and love you send my way! im better because of it! love you all!!

Hey everyone

How is everyone doing? Im doing good and its finially starting to heat up here!! it looks like you guys are all doing good as well! i still hope it is warm up there. even though its warmer here, i still miss the dry heat!

This week was good, but sadly i have been sick for the last couple of days. I dont get it, ive been sick more in this area than  my whole mission! but i guess thats how it works. we are still finding alot of people to teach which is good! i feel wierd at this time in my mission. ive heard of ending the mission my whole time out hear, but never thought it would come, and now that it has it doesnt feel like it! i guess thats how the secound  coming will kind of be right'? we hear about it all the time, but think, " oh thats so far away" but it will come and we might not be ready or feel like it is really here! just some thoughts ive been having! we also had elder tiexra visit the mission! it was great and it was really inspiring! he invited the latins to learn english and the gringos to better their spanish and english! did you know that if you speak spanish and english you can speak with 92 percent of the  members of the church! cool right!

Well even though i dont like to talk about it i guess i better give some heads up! i really like cafe rio pork salads, or anything that mom cooks! i really miss any food that mom cooks! oh and today im going golfing so ill let you guys know if ive lost my shot or not!! well i love you all so very much and i miss you, but ill see you all soon. take care and thanks for everything you do for me!

Hey everyone!

Looks like everyone is doing good!! haha im glad that at least one person could catch a fish! Haha if it wasnt for tan, i think our family would be gathers, not the hunters! haha

This week was good! just working like every other week!. We are starting to find more families!!!!! its too early to tell if they are super prepared. but they said they would come to church and were really receptive! we also had alot of less active people come to church last sunday too! the ward is starting to help us a lot more and we are just waiting for some for the spirit to touch the hearts of our investigators!! this week we are also going to get a visit for an elder from the seventies! it should be good and the whole mission is excited!

To answer some questions im not quite sure what i want to eat first yet. dont really like to think about it, but ill let you guys know! i dont really know why i had the glasses on, they were from my comp, but theyre not real, i forgot to take them off! haha well i got to go, but i love you all and thanks for everything, ill see ya soon!!!
