No general email this week : ( His keyboard wasn't cooperating but I got to type back and forth a bit and he uploaded a bunch of pictures :)  The top picture is of the Turrialba volcano but the then there are a bunch from his last area and THEN come the new area photos :)

Aaron: hi mom

Mom: HEY!!!  How was your first week as a "regular" missionary? Hows the new comp and area? tell me all about it!!

Aaron: Turrialba is super beautiful.. I haven´t been carrying my camera because I forgot my umbrella in my last área, but i´m going to take more now.. today I took a bunch. When I´m on the bus from here to Cartago It´s SOO Beautiful, you can see all the valley and it´s amazing. My comp´s pretty cool, we get along well. 

Mom: so are you at an internet cafe in Turrialba? or do you have to go to Cartago to use the internet?  How big is Turrialba?  What's the ward like? is it a ward or a branch?
Aaron: I´m technically in a members house. But i´m sure there might be a café in Turrialba, but who knows. I dont like te wayhat thekeyboard writes so i won be a doing a general mail toay... it´s pretty bigactually.. lotsof Little like neighborhoods... th Ward is about 115o  120 its pretty good, tey´r expanding the church bilding so it´s in construtionuntil like march so we meetin a chighschool

Mom: I can see that the keyboard is CRAZY! haha - as I'm typing that I'm typing crazy stuff too so I had to laugh! :p
Sad for no general but I understand :(
So is your apartment at a members house too?  Are you doing ok?  Sounds like the area is beautiful! 

Aaron: Yeh! We live above the members, they super awesome. I have an ingrown toenail, and Itried to pul t out and cut it but think I just made it worseb not sure.. I´t was bloody and pusy before and it´sstill like that, so who knows haa

last area

Elder Morales

Mom: yuck :(
Pull it out and put a piece of brown paper bag (like grocery sack kind) between it and your skin on the edge where it's ingrown - put lots of neosporin or use hydrogen peroxide on it maybe to kill the infection?  which toe is it? a big toe or a smaller one?
Glad you are liking the new area - try to set an example so you guys can be blessed :)
Do you have a cook in this area? or does anyone do your laundry?  Have you eaten with any of the members?  What kind of things have you had to eat?
I think this was the bishop in Aaron's ward

Aaron: No we dont have a cook. Someone does our laundry. We eat with members a lot. I´ve been given normal food. I ask them for rice and beanshahaha because Ilikeit.  

Mom: that's kinda of funny since many missionaries are like NO rice and beans - but my kid - bring'em on  baby :)
Are you doing ok then? Your messages are so short - is it just because the keyboard is bad on your computer you are using or are you upset with me?  
Aaron: No it´s cuz I type adit cuts ot like half theletters so t bugs me

Mom: ya I see it's crazy - when I get it on my end I'm missing half of what you are typing but I figure it out :p
is it a computer or is it an ipad?
Probably has a virus!!

Aaron: It´s a computer, but I think it´s just super slow

Mom; anyone you are working with? any prospective investigators?

This is the family he spent Christmas eve with - Skyped from their house.
Aaron: Theres a couple and their son, the couples waiting to get divorced and married to be baptized and we going t o work to baptize the son and anoth couple that needs to get married but are kind of poor.. butthey didnt come to church thisweek.they have like 5 times of having gone bt avent beencomingande´re not surewhy.. so we´l see.. but we found 18 new investigatorsthis week to see we findsoe good ones
