El. Backstrom saves the goal and other news!

Well folks at home this will be another edition of Elder Backstrom's weekly letter. Still exciting, or are they loosing a bit of novelty already? That's right! always exciting! Yeah!

Well today I have pictures.

You see the three elders in this photo? they've all been special transferred out of here. I alone remain in San Martin.
Here is my new companion Elder Fernandez. I'm not sure if I sent this photo before so I'm sending it now.
It rained and it doesn't usually rain so I took a photo.
I got a much needed haircut and I am very much more attractive and less messy now. it is very good.
Here is a picture of the time that I did math and found out all the days of all the transfers for the rest of my mission. My mother wanted it and I don't know if anyone else but there it is.
Last p-day we were playing football and I made an AWESOME dive and successfully saved the goal and have a trashed hand to prove it (Ha it was actually not bad at all)
Coins from Argentina! I have collected all of the kinds.
Here is a picture of Elder Freeman flossing. I am sending it because he is one of the new elders in the pench but this is the only photo I have taken and have not taken a group photo yet... so. that's why.
So, today I am writing in the afternoon because we had to go to Mendoza this morning. then, for lunch we did an asado which is kind of similar to a barbeque but involves smoking the meat for a long time over hot coals. It is super extra delicious.

The spiritual note that I considered sharing today is from the Doctrine and Covenants. I was having a bad morning, then I read this scripture and it really impacted me a great deal:

Doctrine and Covenants 84-

60 Verily, verily, I say unto you who now hear my words, which are my voice, blessed are ye inasmuch as you receive these things;

 61 For I will forgive you of your sins with this commandment—that you remain steadfast in your minds in solemnity and the spirit of prayer, in bearing testimony to all the world of those things which are communicated unto you.

Anyhow, have a good week everyone!

Chow chow,
Elder Backstrom
