Back to Normal- August 1, 2011

Hey guys,
How is everybody? Sounds like this week was just one big party for everybody! haha that´s good live up the summer. We are in winter right now, kinda weird huh? It has been raining, and raining, and raining. Which is kind of good because that means more people in their houses (here people have a deathly fear of the rain... one little drop and they are certain they´ll get sick) haha. It has been a little weird having the whole week to work now that the temple is over, and especially since we are opening an area we are pretty much just doing a lot of looking and asking. Things are going fine with my comp, he´s a pretty serious guy....but like I said last week a good worker.
So it´s official, the 19th of this month the mission and the Santa Ana/Belize mission will have a special meeting with Elder Eyering! I´m way excited it´s gonna be great I´m sure. And then the next day is the cultural event for the temple and then the dedication on the 21st, it´s all coming up! Right now all the wards are in a bit a frenzy trying to interview as many people as possible so they can watch the dedication. We won´t be going to the actual dedication, very few will from the whole country. So we will just be watching it from the stake center. I´ve never been to a dedication so I don´t even really know what to expect! haha how bad is that, I´m from Utah and have never been to a temple dedication... Idiot!

The hunt for a new house continues, I just never have time to actually look for one and it seems like we are kind of hurt for options in this area. The limit we can spend on a house is $150 a month. Which is a pretty dang nice house here believe it or not! I about died the other night in that stupid house, a cat dropped in from the roof while I was up going to the bathroom half asleep... fell right in front of me and made some crazy sound. I´m sure if anybody saw my reaction they would still be on the ground laughing haha. Well tomorrow we have a zone leaders meeting at presidents house so I'm hoping that my package has already gotten here and that they will bring it.

Well the zone is doing alright, It´s just been a little tough these last couple of weeks having so many new missionaries in the zone, and all three of them gringos with Latin companions haha. The first couple weeks of the mission are pretty crazy living with somebody who doesn't speak your language. There is one elder in particular who is having a pretty tough time with the language, he just can´t understand anybody I feel bad, haha it´s so frustrating. But he´ll get it it´s just a matter of time. So how is everybody doing at home? the ward? Tell Bishop Welling hi for me and that I'm excited to have him as my bishop in a while here. Hey have you guys been looking into to signing me up for school? Make sure you try that for me please I gotta get going when I get home, start getting rich! haha. Well I'm a little behind today and better wrap it up but love you all thanks for everything!!!!! Have a great week, talk to ya later.
