Was Up Man!

hey everyone. i hope everyone went and read alma 5 last week and thought about it. and if not do it this week.

as for this week it was pretty good. just working hard everyday.. i went to an actualy gym for the first time in 5 months today. ive gained 2 pounds the whole time ive been here! which is a christmas miracle compared to some people here who gain like 40. but a good week. 

this week were were teaching a member. i think shes one of the oldest members in the ward. shes 80 somthing. shes a stud. she only has one tooth and so she kind of whistles when she talks. in the middle of the lesson her 30 year old son comes sprinting in the house drunk as can be with a machete in 1 hand and a cigarette in the other. i thought i was going to die. the first thing the drunks do when they see me is try to speak english. so he just kept yelling WAS UP MAN at me till he go tired. then he sat down and listened to the lesson till a cat walked by. so he started mewoing at the cat and finding food to feed it. it was a sweet experience. word of wisdom everybody.

we baptized micheal this week. hes uncle baptized him. everytime i see the picture of his baptisim i just laugh. i dont know why. the old lady with one tooth is in it showing off her new bible. too funny. i love the people here. they make me laugh alot. i hope everyone has a good week. keep working hard, and trusting in the lord

keep fighting the good fight, survival.

Listen Up Ya'll

hey everyone. this week has been sweet. everyone pay attention to this letter.

ill start off with the funny.

so it was our investigators birthday this week. and as for tradition here, they crack eggs on your head when its your birthday. so i roll in to a members house and our investigator (who we were going to put a baptisimal date with) was sitting there in the house waiting to get taught. the girl in the family walks over to me and puts an egg in my hand. and im just thinking what the freak is this. then i remember its our investigators birthday. so i sneak over to him all smooth, hit his hat off his head and smack him on the back of the head with this egg. ( in this moment i forgot that im a missionary and not a punk anymore) i ran away laughing waiting for the investigator to come over and laugh with me... but no... he got super pissed. and just runs out the door pissed of and runs to his house. so me and my comp sprint after him anf finally find him. and i begged for forgivness. haha. and later that night he accpeted a baptisimal date and is getting baptized this friday. SI OMBE

so that was pretty bad. 

but this week i wanted to challenge everyone to read a chapter in the book of mormon. its ALMA CHAPTER 5. please, just take a couple minutes out of your day and just read it. im not going to lie, its a bit harsh, but its the truth and its what we all need to here...

so if you got this email, ill be expecting a email this monday hearing what you think about it. sorry if this is difficult homework.. but really, think about this scripture and how you can change your life accordingly.

sorry for preaching, just love you all. haha

everyone have a great week. keep working hard. keep fighting the good fight. survival.
