C Ravis Davis aka Parley P. Pratt

Dear Fam ok i got this email but not the one from last week. i think the problem might be that you are copying and pasteing? but i dont know. but thank you for the emails all the same. if i get that package mom ill give to the office but life is good down here in zarahe.....guatemala. im loving my comp and life is good. There is a drink here called atol, its sweet rice milk. Possible the most delicious substance i have ever had the opportunity to sup. just throwing that out there. also down here we get called jovencitos. i hate it. Because joven means young person. in a ward there is a president of the jovenes, the young men and women. But the people in the calle call us jovenes or jovencitos. it bothers me because its kind of like ´kid´. hey kid. no, i am an Elder of Israel, thank you Mr. drunk guatemalan bus driver. 4 months. weird..... oh also here the poeple point with their lips. just like in the rez. also a little demeaning to me. and the gringo? they say pooching there lips at me. Ugh. annoying casue they dont like gringos so they are a tad rude at times. hmmmm. oh ya here is something cool in the mountains about 30 minutes away from palin is a little town called san vincente. its actually very close to the volvano i see all the time. its small and there is no church presence there. no chapel the nearest one is here in palin and no memebers. its cool cause one a week we go there and i feel a little like dan jones or parley p pratt. the people have never ever ever seen a mormon missionary. we are pretty much the first elders there- so we go and preach Jesus Crucified to them (as it says in the bible....somewhere). Its challenging though casue if anyone wants to come to church they either have to ride a bus for half hour (long and expensive) or drive and very few have cars. but i think we found one family that might be interested and if they are and get baptized we can form a branch and then we can have elders live there someday. its very cool. But things are going good. mom in respionse to your question about that lady she TRIED to go to the temple but thats when they realized her record didnt exist. and she didnt think it was funny at all. she said her baptism was special to her and if the church didnt recognize it then.....ya she was un poco enojada con nosotros. not much else. i cant believe that the baby is coming so soon. crazy. and davis huh? cool. here is a list of names from here katie asked me for...a little late but.... EmersonGustavoCarlos (we have 4 carlos´ investigating right now)RonnieMIguelWilsonMoroni (my compa´s name)Selvyn losts of really outdated american names down here. like harrison wilson etc. i retroactively vote emerson....or Gustavo. All is well here in guate and i wiush you the best, until next time Elder CR Davis Palin, Guatemala. ps here is the website of the place we live lasvictorias.com.gt Dear Fam
