hey mom and dad.
wow another week has gone by! it was a pretty crazy one though haha. so, friday night everyone shows up for the wedding and was waiting very impatiently cuz the groom wasn't here yet so, what do they do? well, lets jump on the missionaries back cuz surely they aren't freaking out too. have you called them? yes, phone is off..did you tell him to get here early? yes, told him to get here an hour early.. have you gone to his house yet? yes, twice.. well did he say he was gonna be here? YES!!!!!! when was the last time you saw him? this morning when i walked half way across the city of porto velho getting everything squared away. ....what was the last thing you ate? rice and beans like always in this town..... have you ever kissed a girl? yes, wait, that has nothing to do with him not being here!!!!!!! haha i was about to strangle members, mom and dad! i just started asking them the exact same questions back to them cuz i was sick of it. haha. but he did finally show up. he was late cuz his cousins plane got delayed and he was waiting at the airport to pick him up. but they did get married, and it was way nice. they looked so happy. then they were baptized on saturday, so things turned ot really good. it is a huge relief for us and them. they were at the ward activity this week and are making tons of friends here. it is so good to see. the members are really good about taking them in too. we have another baptism this friday too. a little niece of a member moved in with them and came up to us last week and asked when she could be baptised. haha we have been teaching her everyday since then, and the family decided it's best this week for everyone. and she has already been going to church for the last few months, and her mom wants her to be baptised too so we will baptize her this week. the works been good here. we are working really hard, but it is all paying off. i have walked holes in both of my shoes now. haha. but i think i am gonna be able to get another month out of them, then i think am gonna either try to find some all black nikes or get a pair of these boots that everyone gets here. i'm thinkin the nikes might be a little better to walk in and not wear out quite so fast. so i will be styling in nikes. they are fake here, that they sell in the streets, but they are cheap and last along time. o, my packages finally got here!!!!!! the zone leaders went to manaus yesterday and brought them back with them today, so that's cool. i am going to get them after i get done with internet. I'm pretty excited for christmas haha. o, guess what me and elder hobbs made and ate today? biscuits and gravy!!!!!! it was so good! his mom sent him some packs of stuff to make it. i was in heaven. i am getting a little tired of rice and beans haha. i was talking to bishop the other day when we were eating at his house, and he s going to byu in provo in 2013. and he was asking what we eat there cuz he heard we hardly don't eat rice and beans. i looked at him and said, "to be honest with you, i forgot everything we eat there cuz i have been eating so many rice and beans here haha. so if you could give me a little list that would help haha. but i got to run mom and dad i love you guys
