Crazy new post

Hola familia!
   Thats crazy work is so busy dad... but thats good right!! How many employees do you have now? Is the business growing back to how it was? Yeah you better break out the bow... but DONT touch my arrows or my broadheads!!! You all are going to scofield?? when are you going? ugh im jealous! so you drew a deer tag and then just gonna buy an elk tag over the counter? thats sick tho! 
   So ive had my new comp for about 4 days now, Elder Cerrato from Honduras, i dont know what to think of him... haha Hes definately not Vasquez... who i miss like crazy now! He doesnt talk very much and we dont have anything in common and i dont really like him... but its all good! haha And i pretty much teach the whole lesson because he doesnt talk much, but hes a hard worker..
  Clark has his new comp now that lives with us, his name is Elder Fernadez and hes from mexico like vasquez. Hes way tite and funny. Oh and i have my book, Exploring the Land of the Book of Mormon.... Its SOOO freaking awesome!! its about 950 pages and it is so amazing!! Dad get on the internet or go to desseret book right now and buy it and read it!! Ive never read a cooler buy except for the BOM its self haha it talks about the Olmecs(Jaredites) and the Mayans(Nefites and Lamanites) and how they were the only civilizations alive during the time period of the book of mormon and it has so much proof of the book of mormon that its crazy!! You HAVE to buy it!! Im already on page 150 haha
   We have a ton of new families, we have 2 differnt family babtisms for the 13th of august and 1 for the 6th also. One of the families is a family of 4 and they are awesome.. the only problem is is they arent married, but they can get married the same day and their babtism. They have two kids, 8 and 11 years old. I have pictures of the last two babtisms but i forgot my camera at the house.
  Oh and by the way i had a gun put to my head on saturday night... haha classic!! So we were walking by our house saturday night knocking doors and stuff and we see this lady named Jamie. And it was weird because i met her once before. The first time i met her she just got robbed and ran and found the closest people to her which was us... this was like a month ago. But saturday night we passed by this house and Jamie was just leaving, it was her moms house, and she was like can i walk with you guys so ïts safer and so we were walking a little and we were talking and setting up an appointment to teach her and everything and the we stopped walking and challenged her to be babtised the 13th of august and she said yes. And then right after that these 3 guys come up to us and one of them pulls out a gun and says give me your stuff.. but all this is in spanish. haha and the one with the gun goes up to her and takes her purse and then points the gun at me and says give me your bag, i said no way man and then one of the others tried to take it from me and i pushed him and then said leave and they ran away! They were all like in their 20s or so! And they got away with her purse and my comps agenda thing. I wanted to beat the crap out of them but they had a gun so it wouldve been awkward!! But can you believe it.. the same girl that was robbed a month ago that we met, we see her again on saturday and she gets robbed again..... crazy! But then after we called the cops and helped her and walked her home. Then we went and got a hamburger!
     Then the next morning at like 8 we were walking to pick up this family that lives in Leon Trece to bring them to church right.. and we get to their house and were knocking they door and all the sudden a guy tries to grab my bag... and he had a bag over his right hand and said he had a gun in it. So i grab his left arm and twist it and push him off me and tell him to leave and then we argued for a little bit and stuff and then i was like sit down. So he sat and i was like your going to hell if you do this anymore and then he was like i know i know. Then i asked his why he does this, he said For the money. and i was like yeah but its wrong and told him he can change. And this he was like how? and then i said well first of were going to church right now and you should come with us. and then we started talking a little bit and stuff and he was like im sorry gringo, your cool. I he said i was about to stab you before i came up to you but i dont know why i didnt. and this he lifted up his shirt and showed me his 12 inch knife haha and then gave me a hug and left. haha he was like 28 years old or so. And then the family finally came out and said they couldnt come to church that day :(
   But the past two days have been a little crazy but its all good. haha But today was awesome.. we had an activity with our both our wards, Garabito and Clarks ward Tibas. So all four of us went, me clark fernandes and my comp. They had xboxes and ping pong and fuseball and food and drinks and soccer and stuff. It was way tite!! I was killin it at soccer today, i scored like 5 goals against like all the amazing costa rican players haha but im wayyy tired now! But it has been a great day!
  Um in the package please send more socks, the same ones from missionary mall. My black watch that matt has, but he is going to bring it to you i hope soon. And idk a Elk calender from Kings camo if they have it yet... but if not just find another elk calender. And idk what else.. name some other things that i might need..?
  Well i love you and will talk to you next week. :)
