How is everyone? I'm doing great here in Turriabla. I forgot to tell you guys last time but here in Turriabla there is a huge volcano that is active. Everyday there's tons of smoke trailing out from the top, its pretty cool. I'll have to take some pics. Also here it's pretty jungly, some parts of the area. I've seen a lot more wildlife and stuff. We were in the bus the other day to a part of our area that is like 40 minutes away in bus and its through mountains and stuff, I saw a bunch of parrots and tucans and stuff it was awesome. Also here there is a ton of tourism... there's sooo many gringos here its funny. In fact there are two gringo families in our ward!! they are awesome, one of them is from Mississippi and the other from California. The one from Missi has a ton of land there in the states and he is trying to sale it. He has 12 acres and hes saling it for only 55,000... he said the hunting there is amazing and every year him and his wife would tag out with like 5 deer... I told him that WE are going to buy the ranch from him... He said he'd give us a deal and that hes going to send the info to you dad... We have to buy it.. you know how that is my dream!! Oh and by the way... hurry up with the hunting points Please!!! Also the other gringo family is here studying, the guy is a bird specialist so he tracts tucans and parrots and all that kind of stuff. Also there are a lot of tourist gift shops souvenirs things. So today I went to buy a bunch of cool stuff for you guys to celebrate my year mark... I'm gonna have my last comp, Elder Burgener bring the stuff home to Utah with him and then you guys can go pick it up... ok? ;) He comes home in March next month. Mom you want a new car finally? just buy a Chevy also... so when I get back you me and dad will all have Chevy trucks...!? But i thought you wanted that FJ cruzer? Ford explorers suck mom... come on.. get something cooler!!
So this week I'm suppose to have 3 families get baptised.... But 2 of the families are from Nicaragua and might have some problems getting their citizen papers from there, so we might have to wate a little bit longer, but the other family, from Paraiso my last area, is getting baptized for sure. And President gave me permission to go even tho its not my area still, He told me it still counts as my family cuz i was the one that taught and found them and planned the baptism and everything. So that made me really happy cuz this family is amazing and sooo cool. He also said that i get to go to the temple with them in a year when they can. They re getting baptised on the 26th so a year from that day they can enter in the temple.. so hopefully ill still be here for February 26th of 2013!!
My comp is pretty cool.. he just kinda gets annoying sometimes but oh well. I miss having a gringo comp... its a lot funner haha especially one that you are really alike. Were gonna go paintballin again next month for the zone activity... I'm excited!! Tomorrow Elder Martino from the 70s is coming... so that will be cool to go and hear him.
What else has Majerle and Maddi been up to besides skipping school? That's cool you guys spend so much time with Nana and Papa... i miss them sooo much!!!
Alright well i love you guys tons and talk to you next week.
