ahhh whoo i dont have to go to Guaymas today!!
yessss so happy because I actually had a p day today, but wow what a week and what great conference we had so many great talks. I really enjoyed the talk by Elder Bednar and of course Pres. Thomas S. Monson I liked how he talked about following the footsteps of Christ but not simply just walking in them but performing the same actions that Christ performed in those footsteps, its hard to explain how i understand it but I really enjoyed. I also really like M. Russel Ballards talk with the boat and river rafting how true is that talk in this day and age with all the confusion and corruptino of the world. haha Quentin L. Cook about technology was pretty good ;) but also something that i noticed in this conference was there was a lot of talk about parents and the role they play, and i really liked the talks about the strippling warriors and just want to say thanks mom for alwasy teaching me the right thing and not just mom alone but dad to you guys have alwasy helped and taught me the right principles and i know for a fact that i never was alwasy and angel and so im super sorry and im going to say it right now and get it over with you guys really did no best and were alwasy right haha thanks for everything love you guys :) but what a great conference i cant wait to get a english ensign magazine and read em again. but yeah i was able to watch in english haha i walked into the chappel kind of sad becuase i knew i wouldnt completly understand the talks but i sat down and after the first prayer and song a latino missionary came up to me and is like quiere ingles which means do you want english and i was like si si si si haha hey took me to this lil room where all the americans were and i walked in put my fist in the air and mumbeled merica´ haha super funny but yeah me and elder williams were super stoked to be able to watch in english haha but all the spanish speakers that spoke we watched in spanish for fun and i understood a lil bit but not nearly all of it haha, lil bit more time. So ya´ll had mutual at sandy beach huh that sounds fun and sounds like payton is doing good in welding already on tig thats pretty crazy!! and weston went duck hunting didnt have to much success huh well of course not i wasnt there to actually shoot the birds. dont worry big brother two years and we will actually have birds to take home ;) haha and sounds like jordan had a good time in romanina pretty crazy the food haha and sydney still cheering, kind of funny how she used to be the little shy girl and now she is standing up in front of the whole school cheering people on atta girl syd!! haha so this week we were not able to talk to victor and we are going to have to drop him he just ignores and avoids us super sad but hopefully in time he will come back, we are working on finding new investigators and transfers are next week, so we will se how that goes. oh also i went to the hospital this week.... haha :) the presidents wife said i have to go because my acne... i went to the dermatologist there and she barely looked at my face and was like yeah you have an infection haha so thats cool, but she gave me some drugs and stuff and im taking those so hopefully those help, now mom im sure you and krystle are freaking out right now wondering what drugs im taking so ill tell you the names of one because thats all i remember haha its call EXEL, im taking one of those every day and than another pill twice a day and i have to wash my face and put a gel on my face twice a day.... its lots of fun ;) hopefully it clears up :) but if you see some money gone on my debit card its becuase i had to buy some medicine :) but other than that im good :) haha oh and another crazy thing happened. so i know this is going to sound really weird and all and believe me it was and please dont freak out but this actually happened two weeks ago i didnt tell you last week because i felt like you would just be scared, but i think im going to tell you because its kind of a cool story soooo, me and elder flores are walking down the street one night this street we know really well we know everyone on the street and we alwasy visit with everyone but we passed this street and we were saying good night to everyone and we get to this one house who always have people outside visiting with eachother they are really nice and super funny most the time they are just guys drinking and trying to talk to me in english, so we walk past say good night but as we walk past we here a guy yell hey!! soo we stop and this guy starts walking towards... trys to walk towards becasue this guy is soooo drunk he gets to us and i can just smell the beer on him its soo bad i can barely breathe. as soon as the drunk gets to us the people visiting pack up their chairs and go through their gate and inside their house and lock their door so im like oh boy this guy has been causing some kind of trouble... but hey starts talking to us and he is in our face asking us a bunch of weird questions like whats your fathers name? i said Stephen haha ...and do you like Nike? mostly questions to me because he saw that i was american. then he asks who we are and we explain that we are missionaries for god and his eyes get all big and he leans in about 5 inches from our faces and says well im a missionary for the devil, he starts yelling and pounding his chest, and he stops instantly stares at me gets right in my face and says ive killed a missionary like you... i about passed out elder flores or me didnt know what to say so the guy just kept talking he took his pointer finger and put it to the side of elder flores neck looking at me saying i cut him here than moves his hand to the back of elder flores head and says and i cut him here, than i see him put his hands behind his back and hes playing with something in his back pockets and me and elder flores are thinking the same thing like hes got a gun or knife or something and he brings his hands to the front and hes got nothing so were good but than he reaches in his front pockets and i hear metal heating metal and so im like holy smokes im going to die right here me and elder flores start backing up and he just follows, we stop and he stops he starts to pull his hand out of his pocket and i see something silver he pulls it out all the way and its a flipping lighter and pesos , never been so realived in my life !!! but he says that missionaries are the same as dogs and all this stuff and hes killed both missionaries and dogs so me and elder flores are ready to go now and stuff and so we try to explain we gotta go home to sleep now but he just keeps grabbing our sholders telling us to stay, telling us we need to come to his house and stuff, this is about an hour this guy has been talking to us and he starts freaking out screaming devil... satan and than says in the name of the devil i rebuke you or something like that and then hits elder flores in the chest and things are getting flipping weird now so i whisper to elder flores "listo" which means ready?and he says yeah so the same time we just start walking away and we dont stop he yells at us and all but we just kept walking elder flores said that what happended was the first time that has ever happened to him hes been here about 7 months and i just had it happen in the first 3 weeks so thats tight haha but now i have a testimony that the missionaries are protected!! church is true the story probably didnt make sense i have to type really fast but ill try and explain better next week..
