Sorry i didnt write you last week. its a funny story. So ya P-day got moved to friday again cuz of new years right? but they were like no use the internet on wednesday to email your parents. you got 30 min. i was like. ok perfect. but wednesday came around and when we went to the church that morning there was 2 missionaries sitting in there. and the church here is the headquarters of our mission.(where the assistents and secrataries work) so these 2 missionaries are from curitiba but have already sent there papers in and they have an opportunity that while they wait for there call to serve here in our mission. so there sitting there and Elder Galletti the assistants like ok elder arroyo and elder Dos Santos get these 2 new missionaries and go work. so we got to go out with them. so i got so worked up in helping him and teaching my appointments that i totally forgot to use the internet until the next day. then i was like aww well i´ll just wait till next week. so here i am writing away!. but ya new years was great for us too. me and my comp had no one to eat with again so we stayed at home and bought a tub of ice cream. there was tonz of fireworks that we heard... cuz our apartment faces another apartment. but it was good!. but sounds like you guys had a blast!. but ya oh and me and my comp found a family really elect. i like them a lot. but what else happened this week... oh a drunk guy almost stole my pen lol. we were in the ghetto and this drunk dude saw my pen in my shirt pocket and was like hey can i borrow that and i was like uhh... sure.. thinking he would like write something. and he just started to walk away. and my comp was like. dude come back and my comp snatched the pen lol. oh ya so my comp. is elder dos santos. he is taller then chris i think!. hes huge and hes black. so no one messes with us. hes way nice and a hard worker!. so ya im here in Vila Izabel and its almost in the center of curitiba. there is a lot of apartments and few houses. so its a little harder to work. a lot of closed rich people. but its good. in my area we have Walmart! Mc Donalds! Subway! and many many more things!. its amazing. i went on a division with an american elder and we went to subway for lunch and it was legit subway. amazing!. i miss america. ok so what else did you talk about in your emails??
