How is the memory card holding up? mom its 32gb its holding up great i haven't even come close to filling it up yet.   Time for a new one? nah and if i need another i can find them pretty easy down here.

Well this week was very exciting and it all started last Monday after i wrote you guys, kinda sad huh just after writing something exciting happens and i have to wait an entire week to tell you guys about it. well last pday we were all gathered together as a zone to take a picture and play a few games, we started off with basketball, then moved on to a dodge ball like game, and then moved on to missionary tag. you guys remember how to play right? no ok here´s how you play. you need to have an even number of people and everyone stands in pairs scattered throughout the room or gym or area. and one of the pairs is split, one of the two has a dodge ball and is trying to hit the missionary that is unpaired, but this missionary can run to one of the pairs and form a trio, and when that happens the missionary on the other side of the trio has to leave and find another pair in order to be safe and not get hit with the dodge ball. well we were playing this game and having a great time, right up until something confused my companion and elder Mejia's (zone leader) and they both took off running and collided head first with one another, well elder granda fell to the ground and we all saw blood spewing from both of their heads so we carried them into the bathroom to get them cleaned up, but when we saw what we were dealing with we called a taxi to take us to the hospital elder granda and elder Mejia's had both split open their heads and needed stitches. my companion got 11 stitches three on the inside and eight on the outside, it was pretty grew some.  But because of that and doctors orders, we have not had the opportunity to work very hard this week which made it a very stress full week and wore on me pretty hard. but my companion is all good, no serious damage but he will have a scar for the rest of his life.
But all is good. president manning told me that they have people working in my visa and not to worry and so that's my advise to you guys as well.
