Hey! This week was great. H-g- got married... I’ve never worked this hard in
my life but the pay off was worth it! The wedding was a little bumpy but it
happened. I don’t feel like complaining right now ha. 
H-g-’s baptism fell cause he was drinking. But he’s now married so when he stops drinking he can
get baptized, and hopefully by then his family too! 
The wedding turned out great. There was alot of people there and the food was good. 
J-s-’s baptism fell because there was no water in the city so we couldn’t do
Baptism at the Lake
it... oh wait I thought I said this week was great. Well it was even tho
J-s-’s baptism fell on Saturday because then we had it on Sunday in the
morning at the lake, yessssss in the lake! The pictures are amazing! 
yeee yeee yeeeee So I’m getting you the pictures and some from the wedding. That is
all my week consisted of. 
And now I’m in Flores with Ch-v-z cause my comp
went to the cap to do something and wont be back till late tonight. 
So yesterday and today I've been with Ch-v-z. He is super fun...  hahaha!  
Well it was a good week even though H-g- was lame. 
A few of the members helped us out a ton and we were very glad for that help (we normally don’t get haha). So the rest of today I’m just with Ch-v-z and we have to go pick up our comps tonight super
late that’s all I have. 
H-g-'s family

 Ok first thing, I have been running around all week getting this wedding and baptism in order but it didn’t happen. So next week it will happen for sure. I’m so sick of getting this wedding going I don’t even feel like explaining why it didn’t happen. 
Basssssically it didn’t happen because the guy who was marrying them had to go to the fair that’s going on, so next week it will all be good. I’m nottttt letting it fall again. 
Other than that we also have J-s-’s baptism Saturday and he’s excited. So next Saturday will be a good and busy day. 
Today we really didn’t do anything at all.  We all just hung out. Changes are coming up soon so who knows who is leaving and coming in the next few weeks. 
Its really hot... I’m melting. 
Um well all this week was all wedding stuff so I really don’t have much to say. ummmmmmmm this is probably the most boring email I’ve ever written and I seriously have nothing to say. 
Things are going good with my comp we are almost half way done with the training program. We are working hard and having fun. 
The other day there was a rodeo and let me tell you, a Guatemala rodeo is nuts!! hahahah One bull was squirting blood out its horn, like a stream of blood lolz. Who knows if that is normal. 
Welllll I see that my letter is short but Elder H-pk-ns sitting next to me was just like screw it I have nothing to say so I’m not writing. So my letter is better than at least one person. 
Letssss seee um the fair has good pizza. ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm did that make my letter longer...ok I give up I got notthinnnnnnng. Have a good week love you all!!!!!!!!

Wassssup wassssup. Well lets start of with how we actually did something for zone activity today!!! And guess what... the zone leaders had the district leaders vote on what we are doing and left it up to me to plan it, with the bus and everything...
The Castillo San Felipe de Lara
Well I got it all planned good and everything went great. We went to Rio Dulce, it was super cool it's in an area where the river leads into the ocean.  We went to a castle called Castillo San Felipe or something like that. It was nice seeing big ocean boats drive by haha. We all had fun.  The bus drive was super long but we made it and I know I had fun hehe. 
Well the wedding didn’t happen this week but the wedding and baptism is going down this Saturday! yeee. 
Also we have another fecha with this kid J-s-. He is super cool and his fecha is on dad's birthday and it also happens to be his birthday too! I thought it was really cool because we asked him to get baptized and to pick a date and he chose his birthday! 
This week I got a really cool picture of me walking on water... I was being me and wanting to see more of the castle and everybody else was in the castle so I decided to take my shoes off and explore some more.  When I was walking back they took a picture of me walking on water. Sadly, you don’t get to see it until next week. It's super late and I need to get back to my area so I’m going to end this email but you guys basically got everything that is going on! Love you all and have a great week!!
El Castillo is located in a very picturesque setting at the narrowest point along the Rio Dulce.

Elder Asdel - San Jose, Peten
Well this week has been pretty good, another fast week. This week our main focus was H-g-. We now have a date for his wedding and baptism. We have been working our butts off getting this organized its nuts, but the good thing is its going to happen. H-g- is ready but his wife doesn’t want to yet. So the tenth of March is the wedding, and the 17th is the baptism for just H-g-.  Hopefully after that we can get the wife to feel ready/want to.  H-g- is super happy. 
Lately it has been supppppppppper hot. But yesterday rained and it felt so good to just get soaked in the rain. We walk alot up and down hills under the sun and its getting old, but what ever, at least it has amazing views of the lake ha. 
This Sunday we had a 14 year old J-s- at church and he could be a good possibility baptism. 
Training is going pretty good I’m liking it alot. District Leader is kinda lame its just more things you have to do but I guess its cool cause I get to choose p-day and stuff like that. 

Catching the tarantula
I got all my pictures copied over to some usbs that I will be sending home soon. Get ready for a load  of pictures haha. 
Speaking of pictures, lets see what pictures I have for you guys this week. haha first I'll explain the tarantula and scorpion pictures. We decided to fight the 2 craziest things we could find that weren’t animals like snakes or something. So we just kept our eyes peeled looking for things to fight as we walked. Well within two nights we had a tarantula and a scorpion. As you can see in one of the pictures I used a cardboard box and a cup to catch the tarantula and my comp used pliers to catch the scorpion hehehe. Well we fought them and it was crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyy it was like a flying ball of fire in a big jar and I thought the scorpion won cause he got the tarantula pretty good but then the tarantula pinned him down and twisted his stinger until it fell off and the scorpion was deaaaaaaaaaaaaad. So now we know a tarantula is more dope than a scorpion hahaha.  The other pics are just random and also one that I thought was a cool tree. And one that is to show you how good wakeboarding would be here haha. 
This week was interviews they were super fast but it was nice to talk to Pres and Hermana Watts a lil bit. hmm what else is there to talk about... The members here are super cool and they are starting to trust us alot and help us out with the work so that is good. 
Today for p-day we went to petencito, it’s like a little zoo and we found shut down water slides... well you’ll just have to wait and see the videos for what happened with those! hahha...
Elder Asdel wishing wakeboarding was a p-day option

Well I’m gunna end this email.  Gooood bye, love you all... have a great week!!
