haha i didnt really realize, but we have been talking about me being done with my first year for about the past three weeks. but the funny thing is that its still not here. ha this wednesday is the big day. i dont think ill do anything special. I was thinking about burning every article of clothing i possess, but my comp reminded me that we are out of matches. so i think ill just give it all away. or maybe ill burn it and then give it away. you just never know. the one sure thing is that i will be needing you to send 6 pairs of pants and 12 shirts, or i am going to be preaching in the nude.

well this week went by well. your prophecy was fulfilled about changes. neither i or my comp had changes , so we are both here in san pablo for another 6 weeks. im pretty happy. like i said i like the area alot, and im really hoping to do something special here. something that will be talked about for years after im gone. or if not ill settle for some baptisms. either way there is work to do here in san pablo, and im the elder for the job. cool experience with the book of mormon. this morning i woke up feeling weird. not sick or anything, just like kind of mad, or annoyed and tired. i dont really know what it was, just a bad spirit i guess. so i put on some Mo. Tab. and started reading. i read only a few chapters, but afterwards i felt calm and content. The book of mormon is so saturated with the spirit. its like a sponge soaked in paint, you cant even touch it with out getting some on you. Its a shame that i didnt utilize (sick word) it more effectively.

So it looks like we are going to be changing our house. the owner keeps trying to punk us. when the missionaries started living there she charged 800 quetz. later she charged 900, and now she wants 1000. its a pretty shrude business tactic. its not really fair, its probably not even legal. but it does make more money faster. maybe you guys could implement an idea like that with fortress. let me know how that goes. so any way we have been looking for a new house. its kind of hard because we dont have ksl. com, and we dont really know that many people. but the members have helped alot, and we have about three possibilities right now. I let you know how it goes

well no exciting stories this week. it was a week of normal. i guess the most unusual thing was that we didnt get chased by any dogs. ha i didnt know this about myself, but i have a pretty serious phobia of angry dogs. whenever they come barking at us, my fight or flight kicks in and i take off running. ( i guess it should be called flight or.... run away defense) but im learning to keep my cool and stand my ground more. usually if you show them that your not afraid, they are afraid of you. except thats not always the case, because i know some people that have been bitten. Only one was seriously injured, but he had that coming.

Im glad you got my letter, i didnt send one last week, but ill get one in today. Im PUMPED to see what fantastic adventure dress boy will ... complete next. ha well its time to go already, this was kind of a weird email. but its sent with much love I hope you all enjoy your labor day, and do lots of labor. I miss you all, but not too much. Im working hard and trying to make you all proud. i love you all. Adios Elder Jacobsonps.
