I was ticked i didnt sleep at all and my comp either and than we got a call in the morning at 7 that we had to go to the bus station and take a 1 hour bus ride to mochis for a capacitacion with our presidente so we got on the bus and half way there the bus broke down... haha so we had like 35 people on this bus cram into a sprinter van bus thing haha im dead serious this sprinter van pulled up and im just like youve gotta be kiddin me haha we cramed 35 people into a 15 passanger sprinter van bus thing haha i hope you get what im sayin we did that for the 30 mins until we got to mochis and we were like an 1 late to the capacitacion and when we got there president had every companinship put there names on a piece of paper and he was going to draw out 2 companinships to do practices in front of everyone there were like 25 companinships and the first names he drew were Elder Tanner and Elder Hernandez haha so we had to practice having a lesson with someone who doesnt wnat to go to church i was super nervous haha because the assistants and all the big important people were there and when we finished pres. was like well what did they do good and we got a ton of good comments and one of the asistants said he like the way i taught in such and such a way ahhhh it felt so good haha so that was an awesome way to start the year not sleep, capacitacion, and give a leson in front of a bunch of missionaries whoooo. haha oh also my backs doing alot better haha i changed the way i sleep so no worries ;) haha i got a package the other day from grandma tanner with tie pins tell her thanks so much :) So our investigadors
