9 Months and Mission Conference

Hey everyone!! 
Sorry about yesterday and not getting to email. We had a giant mission conference in Resistencia with all the missionaries to say goodbye to President Heyman since we are getting a new President next week. Our new President, the person who is in charge of all the missionaries and who they´re companions are and giving trainings and where the missionaries are, etc., etc. , is President Franco and he is from Buenos Aires, but has lived in the states for 30 years. 
And, I have 9 months in the mission!! Crazy how fast the time is flying! Also, this last week there was supposed to be a giant flood here in Goya, but nothing really happened. The river got really high and covered one house that was on the beach, but that´s the only thing that happened. The river was supposed to rise 25 feet and reach downtown, but it only went up like 6 feet. So, we got all ready with food and water and then nothing happened. It was kind of a let down, but better since nothing got damaged and no one got hurt. 
And, this last week we had dinner with la familia Melgarejos where they taught us how to make Marinera (not the spaghetti sauce) and it was super good and I can´t wait to make it back in the states. The week was really good and the conference was really cool to have one last day with President. 
Almost the whole day yesterday I hung out with Elder Warth which was really cool and we got subway for lunch!!! The only subway in the entire mission just opened like a month ago and President surprised us with that for lunch!!! I love stuff from the states!! Everyone should appreciate every minute they live there, since the people here can´t even imagine in their wildest dreams all the benefits that we have. 
The quote I wanted to put in from this week is actually from my zone leader, Elder Harris, from a meeting that we had and he asked the question, "How many times can we give a first impression?" The answer is clear and it was funny when one of the Elders answered him seriously by saying 1 haha. But, I really like thinking about this and how we have to always be living in a way that we want others to see us since we only get one chance to make that first impression of who we really are. 
I hope that everyone has a good week and I will have A TON of pictures next week from the last 3 weeks and the conference since the computer I´m at is once again broken.... :( Thanks to everyone who wrote me and I hope to hear from you soon!

Les Quiero,
Elder Joshua Clarine
