Hey kids! OK, so this week was..well, a little special. so first off it has been suuper rainy. which is cool and all, i love the rain, but the 6 inches of mud and water on every-single-street really sucks. then, on Thursday, i HIT MY ONE YEAR MARK!! cool beans. and, today is the 6th, meaning one year from now i will be on a plane on the way home! crazy kids. exactly one year till you get to see me again. crazy man. i feel like i have been here for way longer but at the same time that I'm not even close to one year. man.

So my area. its really open, cooler, more...chillax kinda haha. but, waaay more mud, goats, and fewer dogs (por fin!). i am now in a branch, a pretty apostate branch. our mish pres said that the church isn't 100% true yet in the campo, and after that fast and testimony meeting, i can attest to how true that is. there was a bit of apostasy going on haha. just lots of little false doctrines. yippie. haha. that's why there are 4 Americans here i guess, that know how things should be! but i am liking it here alot.

We should have had a baptism Saturday, but it fell. she didn't come because it was raining and there was a ton of mud.(Dominicans HATE the rain, FYI). so we have to change it. she will be baptized in 2 weeks. we also contacted a guy named jose luis, he is amazing. super cool. he is like 28, single, and has a ton of interest. has come to church 2 times and is reading all the pamphlets and the book of Mormon. ill keep you updated. he has a fecha for the 25th.

So ya, that's life out here in las matas de farfan! picture time!
