ode to imperfection

Well ive been trying for the last 15 minutes to write a powerful ode, but i couldnt even figure out where to start. come to think of it i wouldnt even know the difference between an ode and a love sonnet. i guess in the end its all poetry, and poetry is for sissy´s. hate to tell ya edgar, but you should have picked a more manly profession. like lumberjack for instance. or deep sea welder.
Any way. another week has passed. things are looking good here in the new people (pueblo nuevo). my comp and i have fallen into a good rythm. we study and plan together daily and i feel like we are working effectively. right now we are teaching 3 families that could be pretty posotive. on saturday we taught one of them about the sabath day and they all said they would come to church. its pretty common for people to say that then not go when we go to get them. but when we got to their house they were all ready and happy to go. we were in an area far from the church so we all had to mount in a tuc tuc, which is a tiny cart like the pit stop vehicle in the movie cars. there was like 8 of us. so that was cool, we had a whole family in church, and alot of people are starting to look posotive. we havent seen too much success yet, but it wont be long. we just have to pass the tryal of our faith.
on sunday i helped a member with his english homework and i kept not being albe to remember how words should be. ha it was just with the perfect tense. for example i was supposed to write a sentence like i have ran to the park. but it kept coming out like i has runned to the park, or i haved ranned to the park. or the worst one was when i said WHERE MY HAT IS AT. ha
what else can i say. today i almost wrote president asking him to leave me in my area, just because of all the things that are going on right now. ive never asked for anything in the mish before and i thought i deserved it by now. but when i thought about it the president receives the revelation from the lord of where im supposed to be. so obviously he will know better if i need to stay or go. honestly i would like to say, but ill go where im sent.
well i hate to say it but im out of time. for some reason my letters to president are getting longer each week. so sometimes i run out of time fast. but thanks for your support and prayers. congradulations to everyone for another school year complete. and to jordan for his new job, which no one has said what it is yet. have a good relaxing week. and thanks for the pictures. i love you all. have a good week
