well i dunno about you guys but i didnt think i would make it this far - Only 3 months and gone - Yup my camera got robbed.  haha please dont show dad this email or i might get assasinated.  Ugh i set my camera down when i was buying something at the tienda outside of parque natural y despues nada.  Ugh im such a dummie! but lets be honest how long did we really think i was gonna go for without losing the only valuable thing i had.  And right before we went in parque natural!! noooo! the animals there were so cool i wish i had pictures.  Pucha. But ya attached is one pic of our whole zone on the bridge that was above all the crocodiles.  It was sick.
Also we got mail this week! Thankyou to the Draper and Moss families.  Your Christmas cards were awesome hope all is going well.  Also T thankyou for everything! The tarjitas de los articulos de fe are gonna help alot.  And the Priesthood line of authority is so rad too. Now I can always carry it with me.  And also loved to see the pics of all the other missionaries in our stake they all look like theyre doing well.  Also got the christmas card from the pennocks.  haha only jane and nate in the photo. and then there were two... classic.  Nate looks like a stinkin man.  Geez luiz but jane still little baby girl haha just kidding you both look great.
Ok first a strange expierence for this week.  We went to visit a family se llama la familia Berospi.  When we walked in the house it was just decked out israelita.  Like everywhere.  And this women told us about this revelation she had about a straight annd narrow path which was good but then she told us how this man (who was one of the posters on the wall apeared to her and spoke to her.  His name was ezequil and i think hes some leader in there church but he looked exactly like mr miagui to me so i dunno.  But then at the end we prayed with them and they all faced the wall, kneeled, raised there hands and heads and the dad prayed for like 15 minutes.  Me and my comp just prayed on our knees, arms crossed, head bowed and listened.  It was cool to see that tradition.
Anyways the work is going very well here.  We have two couples who are going to get married this saturday.  And baptized the following saturday.  One we´ve had planned for a while but the other was because of an awesome spiritual experience this week.  We planned a family night for both of these familys in the house of member and invited the first councilor in the bishopric to come and give a small lesson about families.  It was so powerful.  This family knew marriage is ordainded of God after the Family night.  It was so special and were so excited for them.  Also we finally rescued this menos activo family that reminds me so much of Steve, Moses, and Ray.  (the mom doesnt remind me of Jessie haha) but ya this guy Junior and his wife Lisbet were rescued this week and are now getting to church every sunday and living all the gospel principles.  Its awesome.  
Wow ya alot of good things happening here.  Hope all is well back home as well.  Much love
