July 9, 2012

Sup fam,

4th of July was awesome. We had an awesome day going by different members and eating wonderful food (rice, beans, and carne!). We had to be in our apartment by 7 for safety reasons, so we all took chairs out to the front lawn and watched the neighbors light off fireworks and see some big ones off in the distance. Both of our neighbors were having barbeques (carne asadas) and I guaranteed the other elders that within the next half hour we would get food from both of them. After about 2 minutes, the neighbors to our left yelled to us and asked us how many of us there were. We yelled "somos cuatro!" and then they came over with mexican burgers and potato salad and beans and chips. It was delicious. Then about 20 minutes later, the neighbors to the right of us came over with styrofoam boxes/plates with chicken, beans, and rice. We were sooo full, but it was soooooo good. It was nice to just relax for a while. I think our neighbors thought it was weird because we were just wearing our normal clothes and they are used to seeing us in our white shirts 
and ties.

I get my new companion tomorrow. His name is Elder Wilson, from Las Vegas. I met him at a meeting we had last week and he seems really cool. He's just about to hit his one year mark so he's pretty joven. It will be good. Elder Munsey is the district leader in the apartment and he's getting a greenie! So the apartment is about to get a whole lot younger. It's going to be weird being the oldest missionary in the apartment. 

I'm including pictures from the 4th of July breakfast the ward had; one of the four of us elders that live in the apartment together and one of me with meliza c____ and her family. The other is a picture of our small little zone in the last zone conference. The conference was combined with another zone though so it was much larger than that. 

Love y'all lots!

-Elder Brett
