Dominican Fam.
Well this week has been pretty good here in the D.R. Very Very hot and sweaty! But still pretty good, I feel like the spanish is coming along at a decent rate, and ive been making a lot of friends here.. Like a lot of friends, lol people i didnt even know were my friends in the street coming up to me like Heey my brother or How are you my friend! For example.. About a month ago some guy named Junior tried selling elder hutchins and i this phony watch and we told him to get lost.. But now every day we pass him he stops us and talks and the other day he actually greeted me with a hug lol (hes not gay hes like a gangster) he always introduces me to his other friends.. he has like to other friends named junior haha. And they all live around our nieghborhood, so i feel like if we ever get mugged theyll protect us! 
  So something pretty funny happened this week. E. Alva and I were sharing with a less active member and suddenly his crazy non pork eating aunt comes out of the house and startes saying AMEN AMEN to the scriptures we were reading and started praising the lord! THEN she started going off on some rant about how the mormons are founded from the illuminati and that were an apostosy and that every single church is an apostosy and then she busted out into spontanious prayer, and prayed that Dios would fix the problem with the U.S. Government.. Whats that problem  you might ask? Well according to her the U.S. government is working undercover with the Catholic Pope to overthrow all other governments and make them all have church on Sunday.. She also says that the ¨dragon¨in the war in heaven is the United States.. After her crazy ciritisim and prayer she just left... BUT we had the last laugh cause the scriptures she was AMENing and Praising were directly out of The Book of Mormon!! lol
   Im not sure if this next part is destiny or what.. you tell me! So the other day some guy came up to me and just started reading my plaque.. outloud kept saying my name and i was like yes? He said oh nothing,, my wife just has the last name as you! I was pretty shocked like whaa? so his wife came in the store and was like hey thats my last name!! Haha she was a little bit whiter, but still dominican so i figured it was whatever, but she said it was her grandpa who came from england ( and my great grandpa came from england which is the same time period) so i was like ahh crap we´re family lol! Her name is A Beard (something else they have 2 last names) so we put down an appointment for them and gonna pass by and share family history! And they live like 5 minutes from our house so that makes things really convienent! Ill try to get some pics to send next week! Well thats about it for this week! Hope everyone back home is doing great! Miss ya!
