Hey Wade Quiny Cal River Laur Canny RORO Mom and Dad!!

Well mom, you got that right! From now on i'm having 4 fans in my face to sleep.

I cant iron my clothes without sweating to death, when you ask for water they give you coke!
But ya baby i'm back in Poza Rica!!! 

My area is Totolapa. My comp is from Argentina, spitting image of Ferris Bueller i'm not even lying. We are going to have some good times! I'm really just so happy to be back! We came in to a white wash area! Meaning that the president took out the 2 elders in the area and put in two newbies. The good things is like 3 months ago Elder Gutierrez was in the area!

We came babtizing! My area is golden, I don't know what I did but President put me in a chosen area! I am the zone leader now. The members are awesome, the bishop reminds me of an doctor from india. But i'm going to be having some good times here in Totolapa! 

My comp loves this tea called mate! It actually really good its like this herbal tea that the leaves are like alfalfa and you put honey in it and sugar! We have spent last night just talking and drink the tea! It was pretty fun! I feel like that was one of the first times in my mission when Ive a homie that I was freely talking in spanish! Wahoo

We are the smallest zone in whole mission but this month we have plans to be baptizing the most! So life is great! Next week I'm headed to Xalapa for a conference with prez and the other Zone leaders!

This coming week I'll have more things to tell you! 

Cristo te ama!

Hey family damily! 

This week has been a lot better then the past week! Well on Tuesday in my class I shared the poem of Our Greatest Fear! Which was awesome and I knocked them dead. Remember when Mom one summer had us all memorize this poem and she would pay us 50 bucks? Well I never got the money! So after I went on splits with my homie Elder Lopez! He's awesome and has just been struggling in his area.

Well on Wednesday was a day to never be forgotten. Basically no one was answer so it was soo frustrating. And then all of a sudden it started to rain. Pouring rain and there was still the sun shining. But it kept on raining harder and harder. The streets turned to rivers and the cars to boats. We tried to get in a house but they rejected us. My comp was mad at me. I felt like I was in a movie fighting with my girlfriend in the rain. (but with my comp) WE were both walking along soaked with the rain running down my nose. I said, well fine then what are we going to do!? We looked for the first house or building to get in and out of the rain. Well I went to Alcolicos and Anonicos. ha ha It was fun and I talked to a guy that has problem with alcohol. Well that night my comp had a complete break down. His scriptures were soaked and he was afraid that he was going to get sick because of the rain. It was a good experience for him and because of my experience with bad things happening, I didn't break down crying - I just went down stairs and asked for a blowdryer to dry out his scriptures. 

Thursday, my main homie Elder Nordhoff (assistant) wanted to spend the day with us! It was fun!

Friday! We had this activity that I felt so much stress doing because basically the ward told me if I want to do an activity I would have to do it all myself. Which I did! The activity was about the restoration, I was pedro (made my beard out of my pillow!) I found all the costume stuff in the house! Just call me the next Hilary Roberts! It was fun Ill send you the video!

Saturday and Sunday! was meh so so. I got changes and......I'm going to Poza Rica! 
the same place where I was a year ago!

I love you guys so much! I'm so proud of every single one of you! 

Laur stop writing the Elders! 
Wade: I love you dude, wreck it at the parade
Riv: You are soo cute! I'm looking for a mexican boy for you
Kal: Dude you're awesome! I want to see a pic of your summer fort
Quin: You're are the cutest girl in the whole world!
Cany: Don't worry I still spray my comp with water when I'm roning!
Ro: You're chubby! I brag about you with everyone! 

I love you guys sooooo much! Today I played basketball and an old man with 60 years was out running me! 
Ya I have a body of an old man ha ha.

With love Brett

Well Guys I hope the gringo day was awesome for y'all! I hope you guys ate a bunch of pie and hamburguesa and ice cold lemonade! Basically the one thing I missed of course was da fam but also the fireworks!

Right now I'll give a big ol shout out to Donald Trump... I always got your back bud! No really, we American missionaries have been getting a lot of comments and nice feedback from everyone here in Mexico from what ol Donny said. I actually really don't know but I guess he called Mexicans Coca cola crazy... or something offensive (which basically they are a little coka crazy!)

On Saturday the 4th, (Saturdays are always dangerous days because that's when the JW's are out) Well the day before we were given a reference that a member lived in a house close by us. So in the morning we went to check it out. We yelled from the street "buenos dias" crossing our fingers that someone would answer. And a guy with his baby popped his head out and said "diga me" or tell me. So we started to throw our sale pitch and smiled and he bought it. He told us to come in, opened the gate and we got into his house. I was so happy because I was thinking he was chosen! We we sat down, my comp and I. When we sat down I caught my eye with my comp and he gestured to me to look behind me where the TV was. I took a glance and saw it was full of magazines and books of JW material! Ahhh shoot! what did we just get ourselves in to?! We were started talking, I was excited because it didn't seem so bad! I started to relax. Just then the door bell rang and our Reference said "Oh my dad's home!" He opened the door and a guy with an umbrella hat and colorful shirt stepped in the room. (all the signs for a JW) Well we just stepped out of the pot and into the fire! Thank goodness that these guys didn't want to bible bash! They were actually really awesome and they fed us breakfast. And basically asked us about our church. They didn't accept anything, which is really sad because they would have been amazing members. After, the kid asked me about why people in the United States are soo racist. Well that's when he showed me the Donald Trump video! Well that was basically my 4th of July in Mexico. I took that star tie that Mom sent and and put some american flag stamps and put it on! haha

We also had a really cool experience on Wednesday! It was also in the morning. Elder Trejo and I were basically trying to figure out what can we do! (in the morning we never have anything to do) Well we passed this clinic, basically a hotel. But it's like the one that Spanish Fork had when I was little. Its called Cruz Angeles. Well we passed by on the corner and I saw a lady crying with her husband rubbing her back saying everything will be fine. I felt a big prompting to talk to her. I passed by saying ah no we need to go with Arturo. But I felt the prompting again. So I turned back to talk to this lady. When I got to her she had her hands in her face and looked up at me with red, swollen eyes. I told her who we are and that if there's anything that we can help with. She denied saying they are fine. Well I decided to be a little more persistent saying that we believe that the power that Jesus used to heal the sick has been restored. She kinda perked up a little bit. I asked again if there was something that we can help with. She looked at her husband and then she said, "follow me."  We entered through the building and got to the last hall where her mother was. Thinking that it was just her and her husband, we entered into the room packed, full of people. I suddenly got really nervous. She introduced us to her whole family as brothers of Jesus Christ. Well we gave a brief intro to who we are. And what we do. We were able to give a blessing to the grandma. My comp did the sealing and I did the blessing. The grandma was sleeping and all of a sudden before I put my hands on her head the Grandma woke up which kinda scared me. Haha her daughter explained what we were doing. The grandma went back to sleep. We left the family with my favorite song, I need thee every hour! I left the building so happy and full of joy. Later that night, I was thinking how much happier would those people be if they knew!!! We are soo blessed to have dad in our home who has the priesthood.

Well guys this week I'm going to make it to mount everest! I'm going to be on top of the world! I'm going for my Mission mark!

Like fantastic Mr. Fox said Who am I??? why not a bear, a horse! I'm just different and I'm going to be able to give my speech!

I love you! Every single one!!


*Brett sent these pictures of his investigator Arturo (he's blind) but didn't mention his baptism in his letter. So cool!
