3/7/12 in interviewed a deaf lady! what a blessing!!!

first of all pops. in this mission its sem moleza (no cakewalk)!!! we teach just as much as ever. the only difference from being LD is that the baptismal interviews are a little more spread out, and we have council of LZs at the beginning of the month. other than that. its the same thing, just that we call our LDs at night instead of all the fica tranquilo (it's quiet), im not losing that much time ha. the golf standings look like trash, but it sounds like the americans are playing like trash too...sei la, i never really followed golf. i just liked tiger and like the presidents cup ha. and kobe is still the man. he always will be. i went on a division with Elder Oaks. sadly, no, not the apostle...haha but things are going really good here. loving it, just as much as ever! love you!
