Smuggling Samoans in the Trunk Is Only Natural

Yay italic is back off! I accidentally turned it on during typing of last letter and couldn't fix it! Also library was closed monday so we couldnt email then. 

However this week was great! We did work. I played There Is Sunshine in my Soul a lot this week on the ocarina, and got an awesome new person to work with. Super prepared and awesome. 

Also for pday last week we got haircuts at a member's and my friend left their phone there. So we had to go back. But their house is in Fort Riley--a military base. You need id to get in. He forgot his wallet in Manhattan. Can you see how this is going? So we went to go get it, and instead of dropping the other missionaries off and my comp and I getting it, we put a Samoan in the trunk and smuggled him into the base, like Han Solo. If we got caught we probably would have been arrested. No bueno. I dont plan on doing that again. 

I do plan on catching another possum and hopefully I plan to work my way up to an armadillo eventually. That will require some preparation on my part though. 

The new pants are working great! I wear them so I would know. And a happy note! I convinced my companion to buy me a soda at a gas station! Free soda! Yay! Also my apartment is kinda bland... maybe if you could send me some clay snowman things. That was a joke that probably didn't make sense to most of my readers at home, but to one, they will understand.

We put an investigator by the name of Marjen on date. She is cool and super distracted; it took longer to put her on date than it should. However it happened now! She is on date for the 2 of November. Fun fun fun. 

I learned to ride my bike with no handlebars. I could do it alright before, but now, I am going over bumps, through grass, and up hills! and I go like this while doing it: 

"I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handlebars, no handlebars
I can ride my bike with no handlebars
No handlebars, no handlebars
Look at me, look at me
Hands in the air like it's good to be
Alive and I'm a famous rapper
Even when the paths are all crookedy
I can show you how to do-si-do
I can show you how to scratch a record
I can take apart the remote control
And I can almost put it back together
I can tie a knot in a cherry stem
I can tell you about Leif Ericson
I know all the words to "De Colores"
And "I'm Proud To Be An American"
Me and my friend saw a platypus
Me and my friend made a comic book
And guess how long it took
I can do anything that I want, cause look
I can keep rhythm with no metronome
No metronome, no metronome
And I can see your face on the telephone
On the telephone, on the telephone"

You get the picture right?

I love you more than I love riding my bike with now handlebars.

His New Satchel Saves the Day

Well this week was rad. Get it? First off that package arrived perfectly! It [a new satchel] is waterproof and it saved four Book of Mormons! That day I would have used my backpack, but that arrived so I didnt, later when we were biking it started to rain... 70 degree sideways rain. And my pack [the new satchel] was dry inside!! Awesome. 

Conference was good, lots about family, it was awesome. I dont have lots of time for writing right now but I will try to go fast. We put two people on date this week it is good. One is awesome, totally prepared. The other lives with a member family and is like the dad for them.  Super awesome lessons with them. 

I miss conference with you guys, not as good. I bought lots of candy for it and used 70 dollars of my 150 a month on it. Then didnt get to eat it cause we watched it in the church... estoy triste... anyways in conclusion, the package was so awesome thanks so so much. Love you, I now have MoTab Showtime, Alex Boye Spirit, Piano Guys one and two, Essential Missionary collection, and David Arch. The last one was so good, great idea mom, love you so much!!

In Which Brady Wrangles a Possum

Before I forget I need to answer your questions: I will not be transferred. We are staying. Yay. Thanks for sending, I am very excited! I will love to smell that Thorin hair, I miss that little buddy.

I keep forgeting my camera so I cant send pictures. But me and my comp caught a possum! Awesome! It was smelly and after a while it just started playing dead. Loved it. 

Also I had to give a talk this week, no bueno. No se como compartir un mensaje en espanol... I found a book of the hungry catipillar in the nursey and sort of translated that into spanish for them, then compared it to repentence. Everybody me and my spanish. 

But this week we had a really good lesson with someone that is taking a while--her name is Marjen--about baptism. It was good. But she is also attending another church and they are pushing her to be baptised also. Right now she is listing towards the other because she identifies well with the music in that church. I feel like we can get her though.  

Also on thursday, three days before the baptism, the branch pres called us and told us he wanted to push back the baptism so he moved it back three weeks, lame. But nothing we can do. Hope it gets better soon.
Thanks so much, and other than that not much happened this week. A lot of service and possum snatchin'.

Also I forgot to tell you I went to a setting apart for a missionary this week. It was awesome and great. The stake president looks like a pirate.

Also the possum pooped in the towel we were holding it in. We didnt notice, but God watches his children. We miraculously had the sheet there when he pooped. We spent a lot of time just holding it without the sheet and it didnt poop there.
