Aug 14th

this past week was so good! we taught twice as many lessons as we usually do. so we were super happy.. nothing too exciting has happened tho.. we are still in a trio, but we're killin it. and the area that we inherited because of it is super hood, so you know i'm having a good time with it. so, transfers are next week! and half the people in our zone are almost guaranteed to leave, so there is gonna be a lot of changes. elder portillo is probably going to leave and i will be getting a new companion. but there is a small chance that i could go, if president wants to move  me back into the spanish program, which i kinda hope is what happens because i miss speaking spanish and i miss the culture.. so yeah. so mom if you send the package this weekend, send it to the mission home and they'll make sure i get it

today we are just hanging around in manhattan. right now we are at the apple store next to the temple.. on the way here we stopped in harlem to check out rucker park.. and i dunked it there so that i could say that i've done it haha but yeah, we might go see if we can find MTV, or the natural history museum cuz elder poulsen has never seen it.. so yeah. i love you guys and i miss you all very much! have a good week :)

things are going well i suppose! its been a bit of a slow week. we had the mission leadership council this past friday which was really good as always. we didn't have any new announcements we just talked a lot about how we could become a consecrated mission. it was awesome! things are looking up, our mission president is truly amazing, he does so much for us! so, yesterday, an elder went home who was serving in our district. so his companion needed somewhere to go and he got assigned to us! so now we are in a trio ! haha we spent a lot of time yesterday going back and forth between the 2 apartments to get all the stuff because he'll be living with us for the next two weeks until transfers where it will be easier to assign him a new companion. today we are going to stay in pretty much all day to make sure our apartment is clean and then we're going to the other apartment where nobody will live for the next few weeks to clean it up because it is a MESS! haha but it's all good. things are going good , i am happy, God is good! i love you guys, byeee :)

things are going well i suppose! michelle is doing good, we haven't seen her for a week and a half because the members that were gonna come with us have canceled the past 2 times.. and we cant go in her house without another male because she's a single mom.. so it's a little frustrating! but we're having an activity at the church on saturday and she said she's coming so hopefully we can get back on track with her! our other investigator alexandra really wants to get baptized but she's having a lot of trouble giving up smoking and so we're trying to help her work through that.. but things are good! yesterday we had zone conference. it was awesome. President talked a lot about becoming a consecrated mission/missionary and i think it really motivated a lot of people (including myself) to make the changes we need to to become more dedicated to the work that we've set out to do! the beach was really fun last week, the sand was really hot tho. and it was really hard, so i was really wishing i could have just jumped in the water. and while we were there some girls started trying to talk to me and all this nonsense it was pretty funny. today we are going to ground zero because portillo has never been and if there's time we're gonna try to go to the museum of natural history, so it should be a good day :) also, did you guys hear about the dress code changes? if you haven't, look on, its pretty cool! i'm gonna need money to buy a new bag because we're not supposed to have backpacks anymore.. but yeah. thats really it! I love you guys, i hope all is well :) bye!
