So guess what... THE GRINGOS ARE STAYING TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!! We got transfers and we started screaming and dancing like psychotic people and we were so pumped that Elder May forgot to tell the rest of our district they didn't have transfers either, since he's the District leader!!!! hahahahahaha we woke up in the morning with some missed calls and some very angry district members! It was awesome especially for Elder May because he had never had a companion for more than a transfer so I was the First!!
News on our area: We will be having a baptism this weekend and 3 more planned that are almost positively sure this month. We had another investigator but he couldnt get baptized because of some marriage problems. it was pretty sad but I know that he has the testimony of this church and he will wait for as long as it takes, which will be pretty awesome. I am just really excited cuz we just found a freak ton of people the first month and now a lot of them are getting baptized hopefully!!! This transfer has been the greatest of my entire mission, with an awesome companion and the most hard work I have ever done in the mission. I have worked super hard in Cortazar but never like this.
Some more weird contacts have happened during this week. We had one guy that was super drunk come up to us and start wailing about how he wanted to be more like us, tall like Elder May, with our colored eyes, and my hair of "gold". It was kind of sad but we cant exactly help someone who is in a state like that. Another time we were waiting at a bus stop and this guy riding a motorcycle passed by us, took BOTH hands off the motorcycle and pointed at us, and screamed something unintelligible. Then the next second the front wheel jerked to the left, and so he thrust both hands back on the handlebars swerved, narrowly avoiding hitting a car and swerved back to the road (almost colliding with the divider) and sped off. Elder May and I looked at each other and started busting out laughing! it was pretty memorable!

1)Elder May got a haircut and didnt want to go throughout the day with an itchy neck, so he stuck his head in a bucket of water
2)I bought my first and last sandwich from a gas station. It was awful and soggy........but it was food
3) I got a blister and popped it. With my sewing kit. The missionary life is glorious
