Hunting in Costa Rica

January 16 2012

Hey family.

 How is everyone there? i miss you guys. I'm doing really well, working hard here in Paraìso. This area is way cool, i love it, its probably my favorite area I've had so far.
So yesterday was awesome, the golden family that we are teaching came to church and they loved it. They are SOOO coool and chosen haha The only problem is is they have to get married and stop drinking coffee. But they are willing to do it so it should work out fine. They have a baptism date for the 28th of January, and they are gonna get married the 27th also. They are sooo awesome, I'm in love with this family. They have two little girls, one 4 and the other 2 years old, they are so cute, the 4 year old LOVED primary class and cant wait to go back. The husbands name is Roger and the wife is Elisabet and they are soo funny. They want us to come over like everyday and teach them. Roger already has a strong testimony of the church just after like the first 2 lessons that we taught them, and he said he knows the book of Mormon is true. They have received soo many answers that the church is true, They told us that one day they were talking and fighting with each other and that they decided that they need some type of religion in their lives to help them, the next day we showed up and started teaching them. Then after like the 4th lesson they told us that they have completely stopped fighting and they've never been happier now that they starting reading the BOM and listening to us. Saturday night Roger woke up and 2:30 in the morning and couldn't sleep, and then started reading the book of Mormon and read about 80 verses, 2 chapters of 40 verses, and then after prayed and said he felt this burning feeling and never felt happier, then went to sleep and sleep like a baby. The next morning woke up at 7:00 to get ready for church and said hes never felt more rested even tho he had lost like 2 hours of sleep. He is awesome, i just hope everything works out well for the 28th.
 This area is sooo cold, we have to wear like sweatshirts here and stuff, its freezing. But hopefully it starts heating up. Also we contact about 15 families each day, which is like a crazy amount, and its awesome cuz there are just so many, but a lot of them don't progress at all. My comp leaves in march, but were pretty sure that hes gonna finish here and end with me, one of the assistants told us that its most likely gonna happen. I have been thinking a lot about what i wanna do for work when i get home, i still wanna be a dentist, i know I'm smart enough, i just don't know if i would be able to put my mind to study for that long. I also really wanna be a hunting guide so bad, i would love that, but if i do that, that would be hard to be married cuz I'd be gone so often. I don't know, we will see. 

  I think the trip back with everyone should be like 2 weeks after i get back, it would be awesome! And with everyone too!! So be looking for resorts and tell me some of the ones that you are thinking about and stuff. I cant wait!!!
 Also when do we gotta put in for our bonus points for the tags for hunting and stuff? February right? Do you remember my log in for that dad? if so you can look up my account there and see how many points of have and for which i have points, then you can put in for bonus points for the same locations for the next year... that would be awesome!!!! DR. Later didn't know what any of that meant? cant he look it up online or something? OD means right eye, and OI means left eye, also where it says ¨lejos¨ that means far sight. Do what you can to figure it out, cuz now that i realize my vision is a little of, its bugging me more.
 So in Costa Rica the church had a youth conference thing in the whole country, It was called ¨SOY¨. Like 5 of the youth in the ward that I'm in right now went and said it was awesome, there was about 500 kids and it was the first big thing like that ever in Costa Rica for the youth. Also Wednesday, Elder Nelson of the 12 apostles is coming and all the missionaries and members of Costa Rica are invited so were going.
Well i love you guys a ton and
I'll talk to you next week.
