Lou Hutchens

This past week would have marked my grandmas 83rd birthday. I just wanted to say that I miss my grandma so much. There isnt a day that passes that I don´t think of the example that she set for my brother and I as we both grew up. She was the perfect example of a true christian woman. She was my mother figure, my rock, and always believed in me. I regret not being able to tell her more before she died, being able to thank her for all she did for me. because in reality, if it wasnt for her I´m not sure where I´d be today, I´m not sure where both me and my brother would be. Every day my grandma is looking down on me watching over me and making sure that I am okay. She raised me to the best of her ability, and its not everyday that a 80 year old woman takes on the challenge of raising a 17 year old boy, but she did a perfect job with me and my brother. Just wanted to give her a shout out and let her know that I have her picture in my scriptures right by her favorite bible verse, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA WE ALL LOVE AND MISS YOU.

This week during a lesson my companion was teaching an investigator, he was rambling on in Spanish so i didn´t really understand what was going on. I heard someone walk through the door of the house but i didn´t bother to turn around and look. 30 seconds later I felt an arm around my neck and someone had layed a big wet sloppy kiss on my cheek. I turned around and it was a girl around the age of in Argentina people kiss on the cheek as a culture thing. It wasn´t just a peck on the cheek, she REALLY layed it on my cheek with some of passion. I was so embaressed. My companion explained to her that we don´t do companion said that my face was so red. Oh well.

I got the chance to meet with a 93 year old woman that we are helping out. She reminds me a lot of my grandma. Just always sweet, a smile on her face, and always looking out for the better good of others. These people down here are so friendly, and so nice. Its amazing how a culture can be so different. I still dont understand what people are saying, but MY spanish is really improving. I´m able to have a conversation with my companion. The only problem I have is understand the Argentine accent. I love SpĂ nish, I wouldn´t be surprised if I end up minoring in Spanish when I get to college one day. Tonight i have to travel 7 hours back to Bahia Blanca with the zone leaders, UGH...should be fun though. The mission president is a great man. 

HUGE shout out to my brother, for just being an awesome and amazing brother. I´m so proud of you and all the work you have put into those puppies and dogs. It´s something I´m so happy to say that I was able to kind of help you out with. But I love you Murph, you´re the man. Can´t wait to get home and one day meet my DOUGHNUT. 

It´s been a tough week for me, emotionally, and physically. But hopefully things start looking up. 

Take care guys. Love you all.
