Q & A with El. Backstrom

Well, another week here in Argentina draws to a close.
Time for a question and answer period to inspire me more how to write.

Q: How are you doing?
A: Pretty decent, really. Nothing bothering me significantly right now in terms of health or anything, we're eating lots and lots of soup to augment vegetable intake. Shaving takes way too much time. It's just so time consuming. Probably takes twice as much time to shave as to shower. ah well. what can be done.

Q: What sort of goals have you had this week?
A: Well, Elder Paz and I set a goal to improve significantly the quality of our companionship and language study. Language study, for reasons beyond our control, hasn't been such a success, but in companionship study we set the goal to read cover to cover Preach my Gospel together. I've been learning a lot and it helps to make learning more profound to hear the thoughts of another person about what you read. We also decided to do more practice teaching to improve our teaching unity, and, several painful hours of practice later, we saw a lot of improvement. We found new ways to teach the first lesson (with big pictures. I believe that the larger your picture is, the more people understand it. so we got pictures that measure 25cm by 40cm.) and were able to find various new investigators.

Q: What is your dream car?
A: Why are you asking that?

Q: How is the climate in Mendoza right now?
A: Cold. Or at least as cold as it gets in the year, which means about 4ยบ most days.

Q: Tell me about how sad it was when Argentina lost la Copa America to Chile.
A: We were all sad.

Well, everyone, I think that's about it. Have a good week. Pictures next time probably.

Elder Backstrom out.
