Hey Mom and Dad,

So a few more days until General Conference!  Woohoo.  I have always loved general conference but I think on the mission I've really acquired a more profound love for these 4 days of the year.  It's good stuff.

So this last weekend we baptized Carlos!  It was awesome, one of the best baptisms I've had on the mission.  He was very prepared.  And he's a hilarious kid.

Sometimes I wish I could have a camera always filming what happens during the day.  I always have very interesting experiences, experiences that make me chuckle when I think back upon them but that were very painful or difficult in the moment.  Like how my companion guesses the weather and is always wrong, or when we meet crazy people to teach.  That movie the best two years should have been filmed in Brazil and it would have turned out a little more like Nacho Libre.  I think when I get back I'll hire Jack Black to play my role and make a movie.

Brad remember how you used to flex and ask me to punch your muscles to show me how strong you were and I would give it to ya right in the jugular?  Well I told my companion and my ward mission leader about that and they about wet themselves.  I wanted to apologize btw for all those throat punches.

Love you guys!  Have a nice weekend!

Dear Mom and Dad,

Today we went to the temple and it was awesome.  I love going to the temple.  The only hard thing about it is that eventually you have to leave =/

Looks like we are gunna baptize this weekend, we are only waiting for the 'okay' from the mom.  I hope everything works out.  His name is Carlos and he is 16 and reminds me a LOT of Jess.  Very strange.  I always get trunky when we teach him. 

So Brad its official, you can finally tell people your older brother is now more afraid of you than of dinosaurs.  And if people say that dinosaurs aren't scary you tell them that its just because they've never seen one.  I'm pretty sure i have, and it wasn't as scary as you are.

Me and my companion are getting along well, he's very OCD.  I'm not so OCD anymore so its pretty entertaining to watch him.  I just laugh and say "you're sucha noob."

I've been studying a lot of old conference talks and I was wondering why the heck I didn't catch all this good stuff when I listened to them 3 years ago.  There was one that I liked a lot that talked about the plan of salvation by Richard G. Scott.  I never really had thought about the plan of salvation in such a way.  Usually when I studied the plan I could only see the part about condemnation if we neglected our probation but he showed how it really is much happier.  And there was another one that talked about remembering patience with ourselves and remembering who we are.  I think it was the April 2006.

Well my time is already gone, just wanted to say that I love y'all and hope everybody is happy.  I'm gonna send some pics before my time runs out, loves!!
