Random culture note - They use public transportation a lot more here. Buses can get pretty crowded, but luckily we have ones that stop right in front of the places we have to go for meetings.
I always just read the newspaper for the comics so I will try and keep the news simple so you can get onto the funnies. Last night we were supposed to hear transfers around seven. There was a strong possibility of me leaving so I was a little antsy, when the phone didn´t ring by 9 we were a little worried. Finally at 10 30 last night we hear that we are both staying. I am excited because my companion, Elder Gillis, and I get along really well. We have made a lot of goals and are improving TONS as missionaries. He is going to be District leader so I will be going on a lot of divisions now but that could be exciting. My mom just sent me some cool mini toothbrushes in my PACKAGE that I will have to try. (Waking up this morning and getting the package felt just like Christmas!) Anyways, life is good and sometimes funny . . .
FRANK AND ERNEST - 2 words embarcaciones (voyages) and vacaciones (vacation). Elder Gillis couldn´t get the two straight and asked everyone how their voyages were going.
PARDON MY PLANET - Every day during companion study we read a few pages of our missionary rule book. Usually it’s a pretty dry part of our study, but one day I started a beat and Elder Gillis started rapping the rules. I may not have learned a lot from that read through, but it was a lot more fun!
DENNIS THE MENACE - Sometimes I just like doing random things. The other day I gave my companion a SLUG BUG out of the blue. Since then we have started playing the game every once in a while. The other day while walking on the rail road tracks I gave Elder Gillis a slug bug and he looked around SUPER confused and was like WHERE?
Well I got to go! I love you! Have a great week! Sorry it was short!

3 - BUG
(It reminded me of my brother´s bug so I had to take a picture and make a matching face!)
