February 16, 2015

Hey Family!
So I will start off by answering dad’s question. We got invited over once for dinner I think I told you about it, and we went to the wrong city and called the lady and she was giving us street names that we could see but we couldn’t find their house and it took us hours to realize we were in the wrong city. Anyways, that is the only time we have been invited to dinner. Mostly we eat out, cook pasta or cheap store bought lasagna. We get up about 7 am on P-days, because we play sports later in the day so we don’t have to get up and shower and stuff.

So the work has been a little slow here because it is finals week for a lot of people but after this week it should speed up a ton. Hannah finally got back to us.  Hopefully we can meet with her soon.
Funny story… The missionaries before us had a street display they had set up and there was some dude that started to sell porn over the table they had set up (not good). They told us this guy was super mean and crazy. The other day we were going to meet with Pricilla and we had Gustavo with us. We went into the store waiting for our train and we saw the guy. Gustavo knows him and now he likes us and we always say hi. We also gave him a valentine’s card.  He always sits on his bench and drinks. It is sad but we are glad he likes us and that we made friends.
Handing out Valentine Cards
Another funny story…. There is this German couple who do clean checks and they thought they made an appointment with us but they made one with the wrong elders. So they called us and told us they were at our front door waiting for us and we told them we were busy and they said they would be back in two hours. We finished up what we were doing  and then we went home to clean and they were at our front door waiting and so we snuck in through the basement and cleaned our apartment really well and then we snuck back out and went to the front door and they were there thinking we just got home. So we went up and they were super amazed at how clean it was. We even had little house slipper for them. They hardly checked a thing. Elder Anderson was telling me how strict they are and how they check everything. I have even heard stories of her going around with a black light. Haha. They were super impressed because they thought they caught us off guard and it was super clean. Little do they know? hahah
I am so glad aunt Jean is doing better. Tell her to be careful and take it easy.
The Valentines we handed out
Hey Abby the Language is okay. I can sort of understand some people at church when they talk slow. My companion is cool. He is leaving the first part of April to go home. That is awesome you beat the Ak Elite Black Team.
There are only two of us in the apartment. The other two have their own apartment somewhere else. There were sisters in our apartment before this so that is why we have to separate apartments.  The light here is normal it gets dark around 6:00 pmand gets light sometime before 6:30 am.
Well I will try to put some pictures up. Sorry my letter isn’t too long.
Bye! Love
