BuEnO (;..................10/01/2012

Well yup yupper smilin all the time wow...(: 91st day of the mish today!(:
Another hot humid week down here in Tuxtla G-rez has come and gone. The weather wow haha this is the "cool season" and it rains but it's still hotter than Jessica Alba on a friday night (probly not missionary talk but ah well) O yeh the people are for the most part nice, it is a city, I am white, and I am in Mexico so there are some people that don't aprove my presence being here haha but most people respect that we are missionaries so it is all chill.. And it's offish, In Napoleon Dynamite when the principal asks Pedro, "Listen Pedro, I don't know how they do things down in Juarez, but here in the gem state we have set rules that apply to our students." Yeeeahhh... Well I know exactly how they "do things" down here hahah and it's loco!!! But it's all good! All is well and I am so grateful for this oppurtunity to be serving my savior and be blessing my beautiful family(: Time honestl flies here to, and like you all I pray for this time to go fast. Heavenly Father knows how much we need and miss each other so I know he's helpin me out. But I've promised to not take anything for granted so I can get on that plane knowing I did all I could, and knowing with all my heart I "Fought the good Fight." O by the way my homecoming scripture is in 2 Timothy 4:7..(: hahah read it, that's my objective.(: Anyway yup It's 2 o clock here, I am only 1 hour ahead of you all down here so that's good.. I'm healthy, I am careful with what I eat, I drink bottled everything so don't worry.. (: I pray for health everyday, and pretty sure every hour.. I always pray for you literally every hour to.. Man what an experience(:
I sure do miss you all, but yup I will everyday until I get back.. I LOVE hearing from you, P days are where it's at..(: O and only 3 MONTHS till christmas and my half year mark(: I getta call home! Or maybe Skype? We will have to see! Me and my comp I hate to say it, are gettin along but, we have trouble to hah.. He thinks he's my dad with everything, and I have had to tell him we are all missionaries. I know we are both put together to learn.. Because we both need patience haha.. He mumbles a lot and I know it ain't good espanol haha.. It's dificult but it's all good.. I'm sure it'd be frustrating to have a gringo for a first comp, I just wish he'd be grown up enough to realize that this is a new language and country for me instead of lookin at me like I'm dumb if I ask questions hahha some people(:(: haha but ah well, I always have my pics of you out on my desk and he shut it.. I told him the best in spanish to not ever think of doin that again.. haha(: And as nice as I could! But all is well! Don't think I'm havin problems cause it's all good! It's all apart of this haha it ain't easy! And I sure am learnin alot, and I will never forget who I'm representing Jesucristo y my Petersen familia!(: I love you all so much and miss ya..
