I dont have much time to write today because we talked with President he approved a 4th of july activity as a zone on the beach baby!!! were gonna take a volleyball, soccerball, and some sandwiches to spend a few hours playing. however my comp and i have also planned a little presentation on how teh americas are a choice land, and the impact that the independance, and constitution of the U.S. had on the Restoration. its gonna be sweet.
this week was chill. i went on exchanges with an uruguayan and a chilean and got a lot of good work done. were working really hard to fix some things taht are going on the zone and even though we had a lot of success in June were off to a semi slow start in July. Its like a train that never stops moving. you always have to be finding new people while working with the ones taht are progressing the most.
Sadly we are gonna drop our colombian friend Fabian. he started to progress, he was reading, praying, and starting to gain momentum again. then last week he slept in for church and yesterday when we went by he answered the door drunk at 930 in the morning. were gonna give him a break for awhile, but he simply hasnt showed the faith for us to keep passing by. its not easy cause ive come to love guy so much.. we saw a lot of potencial in him cause hes so nice and social with everyone, but he lets his weaknesses get teh best of him.
felipe and Alda are going to the Civil registry today to get their marriage date! we fasted with them over the weekend taht they can get one for this week so all we can do now is hope and pray that it happens. they´re still convinced to do it even though they´re going to lose a lot of money that they recieve from teh government for studies! if they get a date this week their baptism will be on sunday!!
shout out to Al, happy birthday man. 25 years old. how weird to think that time has flown by so fast. you´re like kind of an adult now and everything right? nah man i love and hope you enjoyed the oreo ice cream with graham cracker crust, a tradition that began with yours truly. its chill though im willing to share. Happy birthday love you.
And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood.
Remember the price of freedom my fellow American comrades. I love America.
love you guys have a good week, sorry i still cant send pics. i have a lot of good ones im waiting to send but flipping chilean internet cafes are full of viruses.
