Well I apologize in advance for the lame letter this week! There are some weeks where things just keep flowing into my mind (like the cheese thing last week that was killer) But this week I cant really think of much that happened although it was an eventful week!
 So first off this week I hardly spend any time in my area due to 2 more Consecha´s and also 2 Intercambio´s! The first with Elder Harris! We had a good time and he´s been working real hard in his area! He made this Banana-Oat (and other ingredients i cant remember) Milkshake-power drink,, turned out pretty good! haha, but The next intercambio I had was with Elder Lemus from El Salvador,, and this was the 15th, aka the day I completed 6 months, so he had the privelage of me burning a tie on his roof haha (dont worry mom it was an ugly tie) Also on the intercambio with Elder Lemus we were walking and some crazy fat guy was sitting shirtless in the shade and suddenly when he saw us, his eyes lit up with a bloodthirsty anger and he started yelling crazy stuff at us,, It was actually pretty funny!
 Hmm so what else happened.. Well This week, with all the intercambios and new contatcts I had the chance to meet a ton of new people! I realized how much I enjoy getting to know more people haha, It´s been pretty exciting out her because literally thats what I´ve been doing out here,, Meeting new people and make new friends! Wow I really cant believe I´ve got 6 months out here already! Feels just like yesterday I was leaving the house,, So yup I think that pretty much does it for this week! As always I love ya guys and hope your week is awesome! Talk to ya soon!

Well Another good week here in the DR!
This was a pretty eventful-super tiring week! We got to spend a bunch of  time with the Zone this week starting off with Interviews with President Corbitt which is always cool and a little nerve racking haha! But after this we started doing something called a Consecha for other area..And this consecha is basically when all 20 of us in the zone squish into a little beat up van and head out to an area to contact in one group.. and we contact tons of people so the missionaries in the area have more to work with.. and believe me it works! We did it in our area this saturday and we now have 59 people to find and teach! So yea it should be interesting,, We´ve got a lot on our plate now haha, including a Ward activity that we have to put together for the 6th of Feburary, so If you wonder how I´m doing this next week,, I´ll tell ya now how im doing.. STRESSED! But happy nonetheless!(yea that rhymes!) Its great to spend the week with the Zone, I´ve got some good friends here and its pretty fun to see them nearly every day haha, I´ve got a pic i´ll send to you guys! It was a pic we took today at an activity we had in a little City named Yamasa, which is like an hour and a half away from our area! We played water volleyball and dumped buckets of water on each other.. Pretty good time,, The Tall one next to me in the pics name is Elder Beecer.. and i drenched his 6 fot 6 body  today in the activity, he was ticked lol!
 Hm.. so What else this week,, sorry My thoughts are a little scrambled I´m pretty tired from this activity.. But also I bought some Cheese this week! It´s a pretty good type, i think its called goula.. Its a little expensive, but usually it´s what I eat for dinner.. It´s a type thats a little more mild, so it smells a tad, but its still really good! Well I think that about covers the week over here! Hope things are going good for everyone back home! 
Love ya guys,
