Alma 17:11

And the Lord said unto them also: Go forth among the Lamanites, thy bretheren, and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls.

Talking to people.. some cool, some crazy

¿Que Pasa familia? It sounds like you guys are doing a lot of fun
stuff! I love autumn when the trees change color! Its the best
temperature too! Its really hot here today and ive been playing soccer
for a couple of hours so im reeeeaaally sweaty right now! Jajaja lol
(mexican hahaha) ME GUSTA! haha anyways, a lot happened this week!
Monday we got to go out and talk to people, they gave each of us like
5 folletos (pamflets) and a Libro De Mormon so we could go and talk to
people and maybe teach a lesson! So we piled on this bus ( ill have to
take pictures of the busses here, they´re so crazy, talk about pimp my
bus!) and it was so full we couldnt close the doors so we had to hang
on! Oh yeah and my favorite part about this ride! You know how in the
Dominican kids pee on the side of the road and stuff? well...
appearantly adults do that here too! Only it wasnt pee...... hahaha
did not expect that to happen right off the bat! Then we got there and
it was a very VERY poor part of town, so there was a lot of hired
security guards around nicer buildings. Anyways, some poeple who were
horrible at spanish got latino comps. but me and Elder Jacobs speak
enough that we didnt get to :( so we walked around and tried to talk
to people, but they had either talked to other missionaries or they
didnt want to talk. Even worse than not being able to talk to people,
this INSANE old man talked to us for probably 30 minutes. He kept
mumbling and saying he was a Jaguar and growling at Elder Jacobs,
which was funny, but also scary! So when we had about 30 minutes left
we ran accross this guy. He said he didnt believe in any gospel
because he thought catholics were wrong and no one else was right
either. So i gave him a L de M and told him to read it and pray to see
if it was true. Then we talked a bit and I got his address and his
phone number so that the missionaries in the field could contact him.
He was very excited and said that even though he didnt believe in any
religions, we were like angles fighting off the devil, because we help
people make good decisions. It was really cool! I really want to know
what happens with him! haha it was funny, my compañero doesnt speak
much spanish, and he has a really hard time following conversations,
so the guy would ask him something and he would just look at me like
WHAT? it was really fun! Its a lot like mexico and the dominican here,
i havent really seen the run down parts of the Dominican, but its a
lot like the poor parts of mexico ive seen. But its way green! After
we prosolited (i know i cant spell¡ :) ) we played volleyball in the
pooring rain! It was soo fun. Then earlier this week my visa came
through so I went to some government building and signed stuff and had
a picutre taken! YAYA Done with that stuff! I hope! oh and some other
good and unrelated news, in Spanish there are 2 past tenses Preterit
and Imperfect. They have confused me since the dawn of time, but this
week, I FINNALY GOT IT! it was the best! Spanish is hard but its
slowwwwly commin! For our Pdays we have personal study in the
mornings, then we have breakfast in a bag, then we have free time
until 1 i believe. And there is a bunch of vendors that come and sell
stuff, so I had to buy a Guatemala jersey today! Plus I bought a
leather book case for my scriptures, They are hand made to order and
you get to pic the pictures that they burn into the front and back, so
mine has a picture of The Title of Liberty on the front and a mayan
ruin that they say could possibly be the tree of life picture on the
back! ITS GOING TO BE SAWEEET! so excited! Its nice to hear you almost
have a functioning primary! That is going to be great! Also i miss
american food sometimes, we had fried chicken this week and it was
heavan! Its so weird to think that i only have like 3 weeks left here!
WHAT? where has the time gone! Oh yeah and thank you so much for the
package! I got it on wednesday! I love all of it! The playdough
especially! and all of the halloween candy! Plus the pictures, i
havent had any pictures this whole time so its very nice to have them!
Thanks for all the support from all of you, im glad to hear that you
are all doing great! AH i only have a minute left! okay love all of
you! I love doing all of this work for the lord! THANKS FOR
