Then at 8 we have personal study. I study at my desk with my fan, and my comp, he studies in the other room, then comp study, and we usually study PMG and we watch these mission training videos, well actually there is an actual program that is brand new for everyone. So I learned two things this last week. 1. Why we don’t read newspapers, and 2. Guatemala is dangerous! I learned them both from reading newspapers. There are so many deaths and such, its crazy! I am grateful that San Jorge is super chill! So yesterday the 11th was the elections here. We have been on lock down for 70 hours now!! Super dangerous out there! Ha-ha just kidding! And don’t worry, I was a good boy and voted, I voted for Manuel Baldizon. I feel good about my vote, I feel like he will do good, He won and Otto something won to, so now they will run against each other for president! I’m kidding we can’t vote! But Google Baldizon, he seriously looks like superman. We did however have to be in by 6 pm on Sunday night, but things were so chill in San Jorge, but in Zacapa things were crazy I guess. Well the pictures took so long loading that I don’t have any time now, sorry but at least you got the photos! (I hope) I miss you guys I won’t lie but I love it out here! Things are great. Let me know if you have any questions and also what I can do for you. Oh side note 2 things; I got the letter from Bristol’s so thank them, and I sent one back, and also I gave two blessings this week! I was scared out of my mind and I did it in very broken Spanish, but hey I DID IT!!
I found out that San Jorge is the hardest area in the mission, as far as everything, a lot of problems; we have lasted longer than the last 10 missionaries! So that is good right? I think we will stay here a long time because we are (I think) making progress, so ya. Dad you cursed me by saying your mission is buggier then mine, now you cursed me with a scorpion in the house! It was with Elder Roberts and he was terrified so I had to catch it and kill it, and it was a good sized one too!
We are going to the capital again tomorrow (yes that is 3 times in the last 3 weeks) for a mission conference. Another 5 hour bus ride, this time we are leaving at 5 am, but I like it, it is something different from our daily routine. Question if you sent me a gift card to McDonalds could I use it here?
Divisions went really well, by the third morning I realized it doesn’t matter if we have different interests or taste we are both here for the same reason. All of our lessons went very well! Dad also glad to hear you are relying more on the Lord, he is there for us, we just need to have the faith to put our trust in him! And another thing the talk by President Eyring about opportunities to do good reminded me of the time we did service for Sister Jewkes on Christmas, I am so grateful we did that, and I am sorry I didn’t want to do it at first. I love all the memories we had together. Mom with the Mustang to Idaho! I thought about that when I was hanging out the bus (because there were too many people) with the wind on my face reminded me of that. And I thought of random things like going to Denver for the Jazz game, thank you for all the different memories both of you!! I love it here and it has made me realize how much I love you guys!!!! And how blessed I really am! Life is great. Well I am out of time but hope you enjoy the pictures! I love you and sorry this week was very scattered! If you have any questions reply back and I will answer next week. Love you guys so much!!! So I am going to switch over and do general emails now....love you!
