Hey i dont think im a new elder anymore, you know why?, its cuz no one writes me letters anymore,( im thinkin this message will help someone to realize to write me a dang letter)....its kinda depressing. but i try and remember what an old wise man once told me; shiz happends then you die*...... haha.. im kinda getting to be the person that just says it how it is.. i dont know if that is the best way, but i like it.. for example, when we are contacting if a dude says; please leave and never come back, i love it. cuz then you know its not his time right now.. and you didnt waste time playing games.. well last week if you didn't know, at the baptism my comp went in the water with my camera in his pocket.. so i let it dry out for a like 4-5 days and tried it out... it didnt work.. but an elder in the district had the same camera. so i tried his battery and it worked just fine.. so today we hit the road to find me a new one.. and we did.. but gee wizz the sucker was 600 Qs thats like 70 bones....(please refer to the*).. i cut my comps hair last monday with my little clippers! and the crazy part was that it acually turned out pretty good, my comp loved it..!!. i told him up front that i was super good at cutting hair.. but really im not... hehe... the only time i cut hair was when i gave Gavin a buzz.. i thought it was nice but Gavin didnt.. he told me it was too short..* i lost last week in the coin toss, so i have the lesson for family home evening tonight!! we always have it with the bishop and his wife, cuz they are a very young couple.. we have a good fun time with them every monday ... and he is a new bishop also.. so we are doing alot of work with him.. he likes throwing on his packpack and working with us, he told us he feels like a little missionary again.. I weigh 164 pounds today..

first off i found a almost brand spankin new pair of rockports with vibram soles in a paca for 65Qs! thats like 8 bills! this week my comp almost died.., no his back just got jacked up from a stretch session we had in the first of the week... i guess he has never stretched before.. he pulled a muscle im guessing.. but the final word was that he could not even walk... and the pain from what he described is... on the scale from one to 10, 10 being child birth.. he told me 12.. (which is just unheard of in this life).... i dont believe him.. haha.. well in other news spain did take the cup home!! now we can actually teach lessons again.. and not have to wait for the game to get over to teach them..hehe..and the baptism this Saturday was just a story almost too incredible to believe....hold up......... i sang to, our song by taylor swift this week, it was inspirational...ok.. her name is krista chon de leon, she is 9 years old from a very active member family..Saturday was her 3rd time is the baptismal font......let us proceed!!..... she is super scared of the water.. if you haven't guessed yet... but last Saturday we were all so pumped and ready for the last time in the font! she was locked and loaded for this moment.. in the first of the meeting no fear struck the little girl.., even in the photos she had a ginormous smile, showin off those pearly whites, even a wink to the neighbor boy across the room.. the hymn and spiritual thought were the best i have witnessed in my entire life.. now the time to get in the water has arrived.. (the father asked me to dress up in white and come in the font also to give some more comfort),, we had a practice right before we stepped in the water! the moment of truth has arrived, dad steps in with a smile and guides krista. a step before she was totally in,, the fear struck and she grabbed a death grip in the pole.. a tear drop smacked the water.... (at this time you can imagine the fam, just stuck with devastation..) now the little girl is full on crying and saying she was scared.. sorry but a long story short, after an hour in the water, swimming and having a water fight, with the whole fam cheering krista, krista, krista! we got her dunked! happy day! happy day! i had some people come up to me and tell me they have never had such a fun spiritual experience in their life!
ok love you all, bye bye now
