9 months

well i havent reached nine months yet, but almost. another week has been lost in the sands of time. how crazy.
Well i guess ill give you the good news first. Hno Gustavo was baptized on saturday, and confirmed yesterday. on friday night the zone leaders told us that another area had a baptism planned for the same time. so we had to wait with the family for like 30 minutes outside of the church. ha its crazy how it seems like a baptism never goes through smoothly. I think satan does everything he can to prevent them. but his power is basically nothing, so the baptisms always go through. before the baptism gustavo went to change into his white clothes and he was in the changing room for a long time. I started getting nervous and wondering what was going on. my comp went to check on him, and when he came back he said that gustavo was praying. its amazing to see how he changed so much from the first time we met him, to how he is now. On sunday he was also ordained to the office of a teacher. and on the 14th of this month he is going to the temple to do baptisms for the dead.
Well i guess I should also tell you the bad news. but im low on time, and my keyboard is retarded so it takes forever to write. I fill you in next week.
So its time for changes again. they wont tell us untill tomorrow, but im pretty sure i will stay here for another change. I hope so at least. I like it alot here. Im good friends with the members, and they help out a ton with missionary work. and we are starting to have success with some of our investigators. so hopefully i will have another change, but if i am called to paths that i do not know, Ill answer dear lord with my hand in thine... you know the rest.
Well hna josefina came to church again. when we showed up to her house to invite her she said i dont think ill be able to go today, and she started to tell us some difficulties she had been having in her life. we talked to her a little and after a while she said, ok ill do everything i can to go to church. we continued talking, it was mostly her taliking and us commenting on what she said. but after a little more time she said, i promise you that ill be in church today. and sure enough she came. it was cool how we hardly said anything about going to church, but the spirit told her what she needed to do.
Well its cool that schools already out. im sure everyone has gotten really good at x box these last few days. ha. i wonder if you could send me some tomatoes and some rasberries. but if not at least save me some.
well crap i wanted to write more but im low again on time. so ill finish up now with a poem that i wrote. but its in spanish.
Si Quieres
Si quieres caminar en mi tereno, te matarè
Si quieres comer mi comida, te matarè
Si quieres tirar juevos a mi casa, quemarè tu casa
Y si quieres ser mi amigo hasta el fin de tus dias, me vale, te matarè

well thats it, i hope you like it. have i good week and dont be too lazy with your summer. read the scriptures and say your prayers. always look for people to serve and with whom you can share the gospel. I love you all.
Elder Jacobson

I translated Justin's poem and all I can say is....I can't explain the crazy kid! ha ha

If You Want
you want to walk around my land, i'll kill you
you want to eat my food, i'll kill you
you want to throw eggs at my house, i'll burned your house
and if you want to be my friend until the end of your days, i'd better, i'll kill you
