Hi family! I'm so sorry that this week is going to be another short email! We had lots of fun and the weather was absolutely stunning. It's real now, I'm starting to get super tan and I couldn't be more thrilled. hahaha. There are many people here who ask what ethnicity I am because in certain lights I look really dark and in others, I looks really tan, it confuses people. Especially now, I have a mix between an American, Mexican, and Australian accent, so people really think I'm exotic. Some people think I have a speaking impediment, but really, I'm having a hard time keeping all these languages separate. Ha!
A man tossed a gun to me and I for sure thought my life was over, I thought he was going to do a duel and shoot me, but I tossed the gun back at him and told him that missionaries can't hold guns, he laughed and said how he knew I was a good missionary because I followed the rules. HA! It was so scary!
I caught a dragon fly out of the air in front of an investigator, and they asked how I did that. I told them… reflexes and the spirit. They then asked how soon they could be baptized so they could get the spirit. Hahahahahahahah! God worlds in mysterious ways!!!!!!
MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #nationalstarwarsday
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO MENTION MY TANNESS!!!!!!MOM: Those karate kid pics are epic! We'll have to do fun stuff like that when I come home!!!!!

NATHA: I can't wait to skype you twice! #mothersday #airport. You're technically my second mom, so it's allowed for you to skype me. :D:D:D:D:D::D
RANDOMNESS:***I was walking next to a bush when a kid jumped out to scare us and I punched him in the chest and shoved him back in the bush #reflex. It was a member's kid who was just trying to scare us, but I got the best of it. Don't worry, I didn't hurt him, it just startled him. Ha.
