Hola familia,
how are you all? sorry that my email wasnt very long last week. haha Thats crazy about the highschool for the girls, when is it going to be built and ready? That will be cool for them tho especially to be able to go together. thats sick! Majerle is gonna do dance again huh? thats crazy haha
Thats awesome there were 4 elders on your plane ride home mom, what are the odds of that haha I cant believe you watched them meet their parents!! Tú estas loca.
So yeah everything is going great, we had the other babtism last saturday and it was great. The guy that we babtised is 54 years old, he is a doctor and he is like the smartest man ever, i swear hes gonna be a general authority or something!! Yesterday i gave to blessing to confirm him a member and the holy ghost during the sacrament, it was hard. haha but cool. and then in priestquorum, we confired the aronic priesthood to Juan(the guy we babtised 2 weeks ago) and also to Gerardo(the other babtism) and right after they both volunteered to bless the sacrament next sunday... crazy huh! haha it was way cool! :) Yesterday we had about 80 people at church to so it was way good!! And yes when i babtised Juan i remembered the C word haha and its ""conmisiónado" is spanish haha
           Yes we have been working hard this last week, we walk so much everyday i come home at like 9:30 and just fall on my bed!! But we are exploring our area a lil more, we went to this one part of it where there a ton of more houses and we contacted a TON of families! Last we we taught two new families and a guy, and all of them are our new investigators. They are awesome!!
   Thats crazy about the rattlesnake... why didnt you kill it and skin it?? haha I cant believe Megan died, that is so sad!! How is scott doing now??
  But yeah Spanish is going good, i can feel it getter better and better. I cant understand a ton and speak a ton. All the gringo elders say theyre jealous of my spanish cuz its way better than theres was when they started they say! so that makes me feel a lil better when im frustrated with the language!! Last friday and our zone meeting president Galvez came, it was cool, he taught us a lil and then showed us a talk by Elder Holland of the quorum of the 12. its fregin sweet, you guys should watch it. it was a talk by him in the MTC last january... look it up!! Dad you better be gettin that bow out... the season is almost here!! I better get some picks of you with something more than just your bow(an animal)!! Oh and the food is good, we eat at this hamburger place every night that is right next to our house, it has THE best hamburgers ever. and they are sooo cheap!!!
Well i love you guys, i hope you guys are doing good!! talk to you next week,
Pura Vida!!
