Letter Home 11/22/2010

hey momma.. well nothing really new except that my camara was stolen so no photos....sorry i was super angry!!!! but there is nothing that i can do about more bummed about all the pictures and stuff that were in the memory card so that sucks...

so what is happening to lydia now?? is there anyone else in the fam that is allergic to amovicillin?? im not allergic to anything that i know that stuff normally genetic or is it random?

ok so i know that adam is a good kid, you were the worried one not me..but its all good, hw will be ok and do whats right..what is he going to do about a mission..i was talking to another missionary and he gets home in 3 months but his little brother leaves 9 days for the mtc after he gets home...that would suck but i guess its better than what happened to jared and aaron not seeing each other at are there any new youth in our ward now any new young men?? has our ward grown bigger in the youth, there wasnt really anyone my age in the ward....but its all good.

so last monday night we ran from a drunk which wasnt really running we were walking fast and he was running but not straight...he fell like 3 times than we talked to the other elders because he said there names when we were waiting for the bus he caught up when we had no where else to go...he was an investigator of the area that is right next to mine...soooo they had some more to teach him but he was supposedly a good investigator and had a fecha so i dont know but that has happened to me too...find our investigators drunk or smoking when they have said theyƱ stopped and stuff, its frustrating but that is the one thing that we always have, sucks sometimes though...

but i had the amazing opportunity to go to the temple has been like 3 months since i have gone often do you go to the temple?? do you go a lot? i really want to try me best to go every week when i get home. but that is in a while so we willl see what happens when i get home....

i love you mom and thank you for your letters...

Calidad is just from Guatemala.. it’s cool. The president uses it to say quality but that’s because he’s from Salvador.
It’s interesting to me to learn Spanish from other countries, different words and accents. I have a gringo accent and it’s still hard for me to say ‘r’… good golly its hard I can’t roll my r’s very well… But everyone understands me… Seriously they are already celebrating Christmas in Guatemala too but they don’t have another holiday. They don’t celebrate Thanksgiving… I get it that it’s easier but its early and I think that water aerobics is a little weird too but it’s to help your knee and how are you with your knee… is everything okay or what’s going on? This week was fun. Our schedule was a little different. We went to sing for another zone and help an area contact during a celebration… so it was different but chilero, it means the same as calidad, also a word just from Guatemala… well I gotta go. Love ya

Well everything is good in Guatemala,

How long has that couple lived in Utah? Jared told me a bit about them last week. But nothing new… this week we started doing things different. I was on exchanges with my zone leaders and I remembered what my district leader told me about the families and all the families we were able to talk to in the cemetery and what my district leader had done, he went to a super market and contacted families. He contacted like 130 families so we went with Elder barret (my zone leader) and we found a lot of people that were willing to listen to us and wanted us to visit them in their homes. Elder Barret is crazy, he’s from my same group but I hadn’t really talked to him before. He’s kinda a strange guy but it’s all good. I understand him a bit more now.

That’s cool you guys are going to Arizona for Thanksgiving and to have fun with your family and mine too…I was thinking, there’s not much time left ‘til Christmas and soon we will be able to talk on the phone. It’s something different to think about. Time is flying.

Letter Home 11/8/2010

OK first thing first.......yesterday i was sitting in bed just thinking and the phone rings...we got new phones like a week ago or something like that so we don't have any phone numbers form the mission..i answered and it was weird i recognized the voice but there was something off. he was speaking in English and was like is elder price there i was like this is elder price...oh elder price this is president alvarado. oh well hi president. como esta. than we switched to Spanish but he asked me where i was from i told him arizona and he said oh well that's what i thought and that is why i was confused..there was a man that talked to me today from Michigan that says he knows your parents i was like well i was born in Michigan and lived there till i was 7, oh well that makes more sense...he wanted to meet with you and tomorrow is p day so i said that would be ok..he gave me this number...i couldn't remember his name it was different, really norht i called him and he wanted to get together today and stuff so i was like ok. but he dodnt know what time so he was supposed to call me this morning at 9. he called at 9 30 and said he was tring to get a ride to the office of the mission and would call me back. he never called back so i called the number again and some lady said that she doenst know who i want to talk to and i couldn't remember his name so here we are i tried t get a hold of this guy but I'm not sure what happened...he never called back and i don't know his name to really look for I'm not really sure what is happening with that...sorry

OK so this week we had zone conference. it was interesting and stuff. I'm almost positive that i have never had a zone conference like that. this new missionary that we have well its a couple...they are crazy he was a public motivational speaker and is trying to help with the enthusiasm in the he had a board with like 5 balloons on it and a dart. he picked someone to throw the dart and the balloons had a name in each one and the name of one of whoever got called had to go up in front of everyone and demonstrate being enthusiastic. well you know me I'm not the most enthusiastic person..well my name was in the first balloon that got popped. so i had to go up there and teach a principle being enthusiastic in 30 seconds. i wasn't enthusiastic enough so i did it than he made me do it again and than he said sit down and talked for a minute. than said OK everyone give a round of applause and i had to do it i ended up yelling and sounding like a baptist preacher i felt weird that we were clappping and yelling in the chapel but it was actually really fun...a lto different than usual...

but yea that was the main thing that happened in my week and divisions with my zl that is crazy..nothing really new. love you

hey so i got the other letter about all the details and stuff. i think its cool to about your mission and the rain so i can understand why you like to hear details now..

ok so i told mom abotu what happened with the guy and stuff but brief overview..he talked to president alvarado adn gave his number to him so i than got the number and stuff from president and called him he was supposed to call this morning and tellme wahtr time to be at the office but he never called so that is was happened...but yea now im feeling fine, i ate something the other night and got sick but it was jsut the night. i threw up adn than felt better and took some pills that my comp gave me and felt better but that was about it....

we are doing good we found like 10 new families this week and havent had time to go to all of them we contacted in a grocery store which was an idea from my dl adn it worked really well we hear normally trhe same excuses and its easy to tell when they are not interested because they start lying adn just going through a list of excuses starting from im busy to im they jsut list off the same old pretty sure its universal..sometimes i think that they are all taking classes in there churches to know what to say to "get rid of us" but when they really dont watn to talk we dont force them we calim the privledg of worshipping almighty God according tothe dictates of our own consiounce and allow all men the same privledge, let them worship how where or what they may...i thik igot it right.

yea so im doing good and really focusing on what to do and whta to do better. but yea, i have a question about i guess you can call it doctrine. so is it wrong to eat the sacrament bread after that has been blessed?? i saw that yesterday and i dont hink that it is right but what can i do if the bishop is the one doing it???so jsut a question that i wasnt sure about. love you pop

ok so just to clear something up in guatemala we only use suits on sundays adn for meetings like zone conference or when we go to the temple im not sure but im glad that its like that....its either sunny or raining.
so yea, how are things going in byu?? anythimg crazy. so what time were you in spain? did they have any festivls or celebrations during you time there??
it seems weird to me, to be here and doing all this stuff. its awesome to be on a mission but i dont understand why all this is so interesting to you guys it eems prety normal to me, i hve 15 months this week and its like how do i say that.....estoy acustumbrdo a ser un misionero. everyhitng is going good the language is good and i understand everything that i have to teach and its just that sometimes its shocking to realize taht you guys think the smallest detail issignificant.
ok so a col experience....we wre contacting in the cemetary. and it was time to go, we were suposed to meet up at 2 and it was 2 15 but i still had a folleto. so i saw a girl like 20 or something it was a thing were it possibly could have been her daughter or her sister i dont know.. but i gave her a folleto and left. but when we were looking for everyone esle we were walking and than that same girl was in front of me....i had a prompting to talk to her so i did. she had been looking through the folleto and she thought that it was really interestingg. so i took her info and the missionaries are going to stop by. i should have opened my mouth the first time instead of being in ahurry....but i thought of that scripture in doc and covenants its not good to run by when there are people who we could talk to...lvoe you
