Hello family"!!!!! Hows things going? I'm doing good here. My week went well. Not a whole lot of new things but I'll tell you how my life is going. So our baptism from last week received the priesthood yesterday. That is always a great thing. His brother Vicente will be baptized Friday or Saturday. There is a wedding at the church Saturday so I think he will be baptized Friday. So we are teaching lots of great people but lots don´t go to church. that makes life stressful. We are doing our part but they have to do theirs. Well church was good...great yesterday. Pres Johnson attended our sacrament meeting. He and Sister Johnson both spoke. Poor sister has been here almost 3 years and still has lots of trouble speaking. They both talked specifically to the investigators. There were 8 investigators at church yesterday so that was great. One of the lady's we are teaching received an answer to her prayers... hahaha ... this one is good. She was having a bad day nothing was going right, her husband got home from work and tried to calm her down and make her feel better but it didn´t work. The cat as well tried to make her feel better by rubbing up against her leg but didn´t work. Later on in the evening the cat got up on the back of the toilet and peed in the toilet like a human being......ya she said that she laughed really hard and it made her feel better and that it was a message from God. I don´t think I will ever know haw to even connect that experience with an answer to my prayers but hey she felt like it was. Talking in animals my nightmares of dogs are back. Wednesday we knocked on a door and there was a dog out front. So I like doggies and pet him .... he ripped my hand off... Just kidding but he attacked me like a rabid squirrel in the middle of nut season. Luckily he never got a good bite on my leg but is was quite a wrestle to get him off me. I even punched him in the head and gave him a good kick. Well lets talk about shoes. I bought the mission shoes but they ripped my feet apart as well so I sent them back. I am looking for a good pair to last me but haven´t had lick nor time to find any. Not to mention the price of shoes here. I'm poor. (missionary) It would be something like 50 us dollars for a good pair of shoes here. It is easier for you to put money in my account than to send shoes. And who knows if the shoes you would send would work for me. My feet have become ridiculous here. They don´t accept just any shoe. Cobble stone streets and walking a ton kills my feet. So I have to have good supporting shoes. The Adidas was a joke... we have to use black shoes so I thought about spray painting my wonderful Adidas black. Tennis shoes in the mission field that's my dream that won´t happen. So if you could just throw some money in the bank and I will look for some shoes that are durable and that I can handle the walking. The package you are sending, did you send ties? And the hot wheels nascar car my comp is like you and stamps with his hot wheels so wanted to give him a cool one. Maybe in our old toys under the house there is a nascar one. I don´t remember. Well I am out of things to tell you all but most important I LOVE YOU!!!! Have a great week tell everyone hi for me and give everyone a great big hug. Tell my cute lil niece and nephew that they need to color some pics for me. Muah love you all talk to ya next week!!!ELDER RAPP
