PLEASE TAKE NOTICE...YOU DONT SEE THAT EVERY DAY... ESPECIALLY IN GUATEMALA......... i think that was the highlight of this year... (shout out to the old latino man who rocked that car last week.. word)!!

(she is the woman of the day)(the woman that knows it all)!!!....in other news.. we went to a wedding.. i ended up makin 70 tortillas for the big after party... i started getting pretty good at it.. and for the record i didnt drop one of em... the wedding went super smooth.. step by step the fam is gettin blessings.. they are all getting baptized next week also!! tuesday morning we went to the dentist for elder baquiax.. he had a whole bunch messed up in his mouth.. he had like a 4hr session lying down on that dentist chair.. they dentists are missionarys so my comp was blessed alot.. if they didnt catch him now he would have had to have a few root canals in the near future.. meanwhile back at the ranch.. while i was waiting, i made some friends (who would ev thought), after a while i talked him into practicing his teeth cleaning.. haha my teeth are clean!!!!!!! Did you people see the miners in Chile?? tough life 2 months under ground..but ya. spell check didnt work today.. sorry..till next week..

what an interesting week
this morning we went to mixco viejo.. its a old little pueblo where their are some ruins... ya "ruins".. i think they take that really lightly.. cuz i saw some guy making some.... But who knows.... the bus ride was fun on the way home.. elder johnson and i sat on top, cuz their was no room inside...!! last monday i cut my comps hair!! then i cut my own.. it turned out alright.. not too bad... hehe my first time solo... its a good thing we cut our hair, cuz on tuesday morning we got the message that we had to go to the office for interviews with pres...!! on the way to interviews, the bus driver i swear was training for nascar!! we had about a 5 car lead then we got a record 30 ft. skid mark.. Ive never seen anything like it.. it was magnificent... (im not speeding im just qualifying)on the way home, i had a drunk lady fall and roll in front of me.... it was kinda interesting... i looked at her for a sec.. then in disgust kept on walking... really weird... conference was super amazing, as i expected it to be!! us gringos watched it upstairs in the high priest room, in english of course... we laughed our heads off when uchtdorf said, what does this have to do with flying an airplane...haha the conference answered all my questions i had... i love conference... this week i rained alot... haha whats new.. but we had kind of a problem.. the problem was that the side walk is close to the river like road and the buses create waves.. so we had to play the game of survival.. we dodged, ducked, dove, dipped, and dodged!! it was a life changing experience.. stay tuned.... o ya.. during conference the baptismal font overflowed, thanks to the elders of the zone Florida!! life happends.. and fast... dont mess up.....(thats not really words of advice)....love ya all....
