What up family.
 how is everyone? im doing well!! today its raining a lot so we havent
done anything fun!! but its all good. This week we are suppose to have
a family of 6 get babtized on the 17th, that should be good. They are
a cool family, they are really weird, but cool. The oldest kid in the
family, we brought to a youth activity that we had last saturday, and
he LOVED it, thats all he talks about. He had a blast with all the
youth and made a lot of friends, and i think even a lil girlfriend,
thats probably why he liked it so much haha, now in all the lessons
that we teach them he pays attention the whole time and is all
interested and stuff, and when he came to church he was all excited
and stuff and was participating in all the classes and stuff. so that
was really a good thing to bring him to it so he can get babtized. but
they dont know if theyre gonna be out of town that day, so ether the
17th or the 24th, but theyre for sure getting babtized. :) then the
other family is suppose to get babtized on the 24th also, that will be
awesome! :) We are teaching a ton of families.
 So my shoe is totally destroyed, my foot is always wet. haha whats
the email to the missionary mall? i got a new umbrella also, its soo
bomb, its the coolest umbrella ever!!
 Thats sick Buck finally bought a shotgun, is it sick? is it camo or
just black? when are you guys gonna get out and use it? That deer is
from Corner Canyon?? thats so crazy!! To bad we never saw that monster
when we were up there!! I cant wait to get home and just go campin for
a month strait and hunt.
 So my boys are doing good then? thats awesome they came over for
dinner! did you guys just invite them or something? I miss them, T has
lost a lot of weight?? And its not like i like soccer now, its just
not as gay as it was before. haha
 About the christmas call, i think about 2 on the 25th would be good,
but im also thinking about christmas eve, but i dont know yet. Because
my comp has to call too obviously so we gotta seperate the times, But
would christmas eve be a problem?
How is Nana and Papa? i miss them sooo much!! how Grandma? and all the
cousins and relatives? i cant believe Jahron is going to Atlanta
Georgia!! that is sooo crazy!! is he excited?? What are your plans for
christmas week and eve and day?
Well ill talk to you next week, love you guys

 Im doing great! just chillin here in Guàcimo writing you guys, we had a zone activity and we just played soccer and then ordered pizza and played cards, it was fun. Now were gonna go back home and sleep for a little bit.
 This week were gonna have one babtism, but its actually technically a family cuz the rest of her family are members, so were gonna complete a family!! it should be good. We are teaching a ton of families and im way excited, one of the famiilies has a babtism date for Christmas day :) cool huh? that´ll be sick. Were working hard and everything.
 About the Christmas call idk when would be better, i think it would be good around like 2 or 3ish? tell me what you think! Were not gonna be able to use skype tho. I wish! But we´ll talk about the details later! you guys should send me another video clip of you guys, that was sick, but make it longer. We do have our christmas party the 21st of december, so ill probably get my packages then,, but we´ll see! I bought my camera, thank you very much, This week also my shoe tore apart so i need to buy new shoes, but i dont think they sell my size here, so i need to check into that, in the meantime i have a huge hole in my shoe haha classic.
 Everything is going well here in Costa Rica!! I wish i could see everyone for christmas tho!! but i guess i only have 2 left... almost 1 haha
 Well i love you guys, talk to you next week!

what up family!
 How are you guys? im doin great!! the new area im in is cool, its just like la Rita that i was in before. In fact its like 20 minutes away from it, its really close! My comp is way tite, hes from texas. His name is Elder Nelson. Its weird having a gringo for a comp now. The other day i finally got to eat ¨Rice and Beans¨, ive heard about it all my mish but had never tried it before. Rice and Beans is different than just rice and beans, they acutally say RICE and Beans in english to know the difference. Rice and Beans is just rice and beans cooked in coconut milk and like fried kind of, but its only maid on the caribean side because only black people make it really. And our branch president is black so he made it for us yesterday and it was soooo amazing, by far my favorite thing ive eaten here the whole mish. haha
 We have a lot of investigators, we had 3 families come to church with us that are awesome, so i hope all 3 of them get babtised this month, we´ll see! In total were teaching about 6 families that are all awesome, theres this one family that im in love with and i know there gonna get babtized. My comp only has 4 more months than i have, so thats weird too.
 How was st geezy?? im so jealous, i love thanksgiving down there!! I miss seeing the family and stuff!! and the traditional gun shooting with everyone!! Nana and Papa were down there right? That sucks that brennan didnt go tho!! Thanksgiving was just another day here, we actually forgot it was thanksgiving on thanksgiving day. We were teaching this family and then all the sudden after we were like yeah its the 24th, and after we said that we were like... wow... its thanksgiving!! haha
  Oh and also... i lost my camera :( i left it at the bus stop in San Jose, when i was coming to my new area after the change meeting. So im gonna need a new camera also, so if you want to send me one or should i take out money and just buy one? i think the second one would be easier...!! But let me know!! i need a camera before next pday cuz were suppose to be going to a really cool national forest hike thing.
 I cant believe Buck sold his bodyguard, but thats sick! tell his he HAS to get the Banelli shotgun, ill be mad if he doesnt, tell him!! I cant believe how sucky your doin on the huntin thing. Get out there for the 15th time ive said it!!

We also were suppose to have a family get babtized and married yesterday but the wife was sick in the hospital so the couldnt. I was way sad!! But now i have changes, and now im not gonna be able to get them babtized! My new area is called Guásimo, Im not there yet because we just got out of the change meetings and were waiting for the bus to come in 2 hours, so were chillin at an internet cafe. My new comp is a gringo,... weird huh? He says our area is pretty country and doesnt have city so im excited. I was really sad to leave my last area!! honestly i wanted to cry. It was such a cool place with such cool members and stuff! But whatevs.
 I cant believe its already thanksgiving time of year. I miss the holidays over there with the family and stuff!! That sucks that you cant go to st george dad. Thats my favorite place to spend thanksgiving!! And then right around the corner is christmas, that is so crazy! Speaking of christmas, i cant wait to get my package. When are you guys gonna send them? Also can you guys send me a big thing of cetapil, that stuff to wash your face.. they dont have that here!! What are you guys gonna do for christmas? are you gonna go anywhere? Its gonna be so weird here for christmas, without my family, that is so weird. How is papa and nana? and joe and lisa? and the hansens? i havent heard from any of them for a while :( i I cant wait to get home and just go to family parties and see all them again.
 Wow dad... you really suck at hunting, i cant believe you havent filled one tag this whole season!! You need to try harder dude!! get out there more often!!  I just wanna hunt so bad right now!!!
 Majerle i cant believe you broke up with your boyfriend.. good job, you cant have one anyway!! And jeez, that didnt last to long haha Maddi and Majerle, you two are best friends... awkward! haha What did you plan for the night before i come home? Thats awesome that matt came over the other day, i miss that guy so much!
 What else is new? I complete 9 months on the 23rd... i dont know if i feel like thats a lot or a little! Some days feel like ive been a missionary literally my whole life and others feel like its flying by the time. I wish it would just stay constant haha How did you know changes were today??! Well i love you guys a ton. And ill talk to you next week!!
