Well thanks for your letter, makes me laugh about cutting peoples heads off for your dead flowers. I guess that is why I was the favorite, I would try and do that kind of thing. But this week was good for my companion and I. Had a service project in putting on a tin roof and building walls for a family of recent converts. We had a good time, and well won lots of confidence with them. It was also pretty sweet cause I actually got to use a hammer and my hands and I even cut myself. It had been a long time since physical labor. And it was super funny cause my comp. had never used a hammer in his life. Also big news, president was here Wed. and had interviews. he is super happy with the zone and my comp and I. So my comp and I will be together another transfer, but we are changing areas. We are going to Quinta Bosch, which is the stake center. I am happy in that well we need to be there cause it is the stake, but sad cause I love the ward I am in. We have made some good friends and love a lot of people in the ward. but it is for the best. Change is good to progress. What else. I went on interchanges with the new gringo in my zone Elder Hathoway. He pretty cool kid. He served in Tennesee for 3 months and 3 months in the MTC so he has adjusted to missionary life and is doing great. He doesn't speak much spanish and well I can't believe I was worse then he was about 13 months ago. our RS pres didn't believe me. So I must be speaking ok now. But always room for improvement. Haha oh yeah, a funny something, about 3 weeks ago my comp got an email from a good friend telling him that one of his ex girlfriends is coming to the colombia bogota mission. not saying north or south, and well we brought it up in interviews, and president got a little serious after we explained and asked her name, and he said well lets see, called the secretary and asked who come in Oct. well turns out Flor, the girl, is headed to Bogota north!!!!!! and well president grinned and said, you know what my father would say about this elders...........OH CRAP........I about fell out of my chair from laughing. It was great. I will never forget. that is my week. was pretty good. i am also learning about making baby clothes. I do lots of service in a fabric-ing place of the RS president. She is awesome. Sister Amparo. and lets companion still likes natali, thinks she is cute. and yeah.. cant believe preston is going to graduate in 2 weeks and that you guys will be on the lake in not to long. time is flying! Ok i love you all, i know the church is led by our Savior through his mouthpiece here on the earth who is Thomas S. Monson. He is a stud, if anybody that reads this and sees him in the next week or so, tell him i said he is a stud........i am grateful for such a great family that I was blessed with and where I live. Love you all have a great week
love your son brother and friend
