Mis Amados,

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! I hope it was great for yáll. Here in Argentina nobody did anything.  Pobrecitos they don´t know the glory of free candy. haha But Elder Clayton and I made some Coke Floats with Vanilla Ice cream so yes I celebrated.  My mother raised me to celebrate Halloween so it had to be done.  I also carved a ´´pumpkin´´ out of an orange haha so there´s that. Happy Halloween!

We keep on working here in Esperanza!!  Our investigator David is slowly stopping to smoke. Only had 3 cigarettes this week.  He is not quite ready for baptism yet so we moved his baptism back to the 27 of November. But the highlight of the week was testimony meeting yesterday in church.  Our branch here in Esperanza all went to the Buenos Aires Temple on Friday.  It was so amazing to hear their testimonies of the temple.  The Spirit of God like a fire was burning in my soul!  I know that the Temple is the house of the Lord.  I miss the temple so much.  All of you Utahans take advantage and go to the temple this week! 

Missionary work is awesome.  It has changed my life and I still have tons of work and time to go.  It has made my love for my family grow, it has turned some of my weaknesses into strengths, it has shown me who I am and who I want to become, and it has drawn me closer to my savior.  I am so grateful for my calling and the opportunity to serve in Argentina.

Well I love you all and hope that you all have a great week. Un abrazo fuerte.

Con amor,

Elder Maynard
