ok ok ok so this week was sick.  Dad told me to tell about the life a CCM (spanish for MTC) misssionary so here it goes. wake up shower eat and then personal studying by 730.. grammer/spanish starts at 830 and thats mixed in with some simple lesson on the gospel.  usually at 11 we teach our first investigator.  This is the best cuz we actually are giving lessons everyday with our companions and its not scheduled out at all.  you just get two week for 2 investigators.. one morning and one at night and you just teach.  at twelve theres lunch and then we do this computer spanish study from 1 to 2.  2 to 3 is physical activity and then by 330 were companero studying or personal studying. 430 spanish again with other teacher and then dinner at 6.  then theres more spanish and our other investigator till 9.  then we plan for tomoro and then get ready for bed.  ya not very exciting but the teaching is going really good.  i think me and my comanion are the only ones to commit someone to baptism in our district which was sick. haha even is cool when its fake.  anyways the temple was great again today.  i had to lead around all the new north americans today while we were outside the ccm but next week well be on our own.  our new latinos in our room keep locking the door for some  reason and they locked themselves out the other night and were on the second story.  so we got a bench bullock (big marine kid) stood on it and i i stood on his shoulders then unscrewed the screen and climbed in through the window all just cuz we didnt want to disturb presidente.  mostly cuz he doesnt speak english so ya its hard to talk to him.  anyways that was cool.  o ya k so my teacher hermano granados told us this story about some guys who went to iquitos like 20 years ago.  this will probly seem like im making this up but its legit.  so some natives came up to this campionship and said there village needed help so the missionarys of course were like ok.  ended up traveling for 2 days down the amazon river to get there.  they get there and the natives tell them theres a giant snake that has eaten 4 of there people.  10 meters long and as big as a basketball rim around.  they missionaries had machetes and the natives gave them one rifle.  they circle the village for two days with a little native guiding them.  this was all in spanish but imma doing good at spanish so i think this is all right haha. anyways the snake some how swung down and smacked the little native breaking all his ribs.  this is where the spanish got confusing but all i know is the whole villege ate the snake for dinner that night so they killed it haha im not coming home till i have a story to top that. iquitos is gonna be sick.  we had a great devotionalk last night about how simple the message needs to be.  focus soley on the doctrine of christ and the spirit will do the rest.  it helps everyone here alot cuz all we can do is be simple here in spanish.  its humbling for me because i like to go deep but i love the change thats happening in my tstimony through the spirit.  ok im out of time but i love you all.  i got my email from speny but nothing from cj.... are you kidding me?!?! haha keep it simple
