<Happy Birthday Picture>
That is almost what I wanted to say...they didn´t have any cards that sad happy bird-day...so Dad sent me the next best thing. The big 47...I remember the big 46...and it feels like it was yesterday. I remember jess sent me an email with a pic of momma all glammed up to go out to dinner or something. Weird how I can remember that so easily. Time passes by quick, for number 48 I´ll be home and married...maybe I´ll just be home.
I´m glad that everyone is doing well. I forgot about the Olympics until we went to a member´s house and he was watching them...it was figure skating so I didn´t get to hyped up, but it was still pretty cool.
We also started our english course this saturday...it was a little interesting. So we had it all planned out, and me and elder sabin were going to sing the Scientist. So our plans were ruined by the fact that everything went wrong (We didn´t have copies of the test for the people to take and our slide show didn´t work out and there were like 100 people there waiting). So to make the long story short, we sang our song, then, I messed around on the piano for 10 minutes, and then I tried to play Halleilujah, for another elder to sing...let´s just say,that I gotta practice a little bit more on the Halleilujah song. We crashed and burned. But it was alright, the people said that they liked it. Hahahaha wow, I must say that I´m learning to be a little bit more chill when it comes to winging it in the front of a 100 people.
But we also are having a lot of success with our investigators. We had this girl named Eloiza, who lives in a town about 5 or 6 miles away. So we invited her to come to church after the english course and she said that she would be there. So we get to church yesterday and there she was waiting for us. She said that she got up at 6 and had to hitchhike to town just to get here. Then she told us that she wouldn´t be able to go back until 8:40 at night, and she came here just to come to church. Man it was pretty awesome to see someone so dedicated. We taught her after church and she loved it. We are going to talk to her after school and invite her to be baptized. She is awesome. Also Jean is quitting smoking, which is cool, they didn´t go to church so that was kind of a bummer. Carla, also went to church, this girl that we are teaching. She already has an answer about the book of mormon and she is praying about being baptized this sunday...so pray that she gets an answer for me, because I´m praying like crazy. All in all, I´m doing great, I´m loving the mission and I´m happy to be here. Love and miss you all and hope that you have a great week. I hope that you enjoyed the email...I tried to put a little more time into it to keep you up to date on my life...hahahah.
