Busy Day

No pictures again from Nick.  He's still having trouble with his camera.  Hopefully, he can send some this next week.  In the area he is in, the Mission President plays soccer with them every p-day.  Today was his first p-day with the President.  I think he's going to feel the effects of playing soccer tomorrow.  

Long story short, I've been soo busy today... .We tried to do too many things at once. 

Every Sunday night we stay at the assistants house and just sit and watch them take numbers and talk to people from 9-10:50. Then we go to bed at like 11:30. Get up at 6:30 the next morning to go play football (soccer) with President at 8 am. 

We played until, 2... I'm pretty burned... and everything hurts. 

Then we went to Antea again (the largest mall in South America).. found some dope ties, bought another shirt, ate subway... typical mall stuff. Then we took a taxi and we barely got back to write a little. 

Oh, about the phone call, I'm gonna call you guys next Monday, at like 6:30 pm

About the shoes, I decided to buy new ones. The assistants are going to Leon today so I'm sending them with money to buy nice leather ones for cheap, cheap, cheap. 

As far as my area goes... It's so hard, but it's gettin' there. We have 2 parts. 

1.Centro (downtown)... all it is is stuck up rich people that really don't want anything at all. But we talk to them anyway in hopes that someone will accept, when after a 20 min talk they're like "nahh, I just wanted to ask things"
Also it's kinda hard to pay attention when there are group protests/advertisements for the election of the new Governor of Queretaro. Also the fact there are break dancers all over, and (once again) transvestites. Nothing like having a 30 year old man dressed up in a short mini skirt whisper "hey little white boy" to you... 

Nothing like america. 

2. Hercules. The ghetto. It has sweet graffiti all over though. But for the most part, it's a ghost town.. no one really wants anything. But we're gonna keep trying.

Umm in other news. Our ward has like 180 people that attend it. I haven't seen one so big in my entire mission. I got to share my testimony this week though.. Only the fact that everyone went over and when it was my turn it was 20 mins past the hour.

But in the 30 sec I had I shared my simple testimony about how the gospel has given me everything. And how I know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my mom and my dad who taught me good things as a little kid. 

It's true. Thanks for everything really, I'm excited to see you guys next Monday. See you soon.,


PS  Oh... also happy birthday dad, what are you 50 now? See you Monday!
