Well guys, things have been going great this week!
Anthony was able to recieve the Preisthood this week and ordained to be a Priest! Hes super happy about that and has been helping us with the missionary work giving us references and what not... This week was Semana Santa,, although it wasnt very santa haha,, there were pools, beer and hookah all over the streets people were going nuts! But the only good part about Semana Santa was the tons of Habichuela con Dulce they got.. LITERALLLY we ate habichuela con dulce about 3 times EVERY day this week.. what is this mysterious food you may ask,, well.. its a famous dominican meal for this time of the year, where they put BEANS together with SUGAR and eat it! sounds weird right? it is at first hah, but i like it a lot better this year than i did last year.. i guess that comes with being "aplatanao" 

This week wer were able to help out this awesome member named Jonas get his empenada stand up and running again (pictures included)..something i love about this guy is that no matter how rough the situation hes always got a huge smile on his face!
 
As well this week Elder Beecher was finally beat as the missions tallest missionary :( we found one taller,, and hes here in the zone,, his name is elder Burrel from Jamaica!! super cool guy! Heres a picture with me next to them both, just so you see how tall they really are ;) and keep in mind, im usually a foot taller than the average dominican haha!

Have a great week guys, happy easter!
