Is that a dead chicken in your pocket?

The work never stops

A typical meal when I have to cook
So tired after a long day of work

Companion one also tired

Companion two also tired

Hello my loving familyyy.

well, I'll get right to answering the questions.
There were changes yesterday, but there were just mini changes to accommodate the temporary missionaries, on the 19th there will be changes again, which I believe will affect me, i think im out to one last area in the mission. but on tuesday the 19th I wont be writing either I don't think, not until the wednesday. but next tuesday I will be writing on tuesday.

I think a good time to go back home from picking me up will be on the thursday morning. Cuz then i can get home at in the afternoonish and still be able to enjoy that last wednesday here. The wednesday that you see me will all be taken up with the mission home stuff. you wont see me until the late afternoon on the wednesday. Antigua is about 1.5 to 2 hours away from the capital where we will be at, so maybe the first night we should stay in the capital. Then go to Antigua. Antigua is pretty central, but I did want to go to panajachel, and we might want to stay a night there, cuz i want to drive up to Quetzaltenango to the new temple one morning, and panajachal is a lot closer to it than Antigua, like maybe 3 hours closer. But we are going to be waking up early every morning anyways so we could wake up extra early to make the longer drive. I'm used to waking up at like 4 to get to places early haha. but yes, rent a car, that will be the only way to do it. You guys might just want to fly in on wednesday morning, Cuz i dont want to guys doing too much without me there, especially if your going to be in the capital.

The Guatemala temple picture gift you will make for my converts sounds good, yeah, like 20 will probably be good. Families are Forever is spanish is (Las Familias Son Eternas) that would make a good little gift.

So I neglected to wish you a Happy birthday last week, right after i left the internet I thought, OH NOOO! I forgot to wish mama happy birthday!, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!! from the pictures you sent me you are looking younger than ever. Also I like madi's brown jacket, maybe I'll have to steal it when i get home, like how she steals my clothes haha. but yeah, all you guys are looking great.
I received that envelope with pictures that you sent me as well, everyones looking buenísimo. jaja

Things are all good here in chimaltenango, all three of us here are getting along great.
we are working with a family named the family “R”, that are a really young hip couple, they are really cool and nice, we are pushing for them to be baptized on the 17th, but they feel that it it rushed, but hopefully it will go through. i want to baptize again before I leave this area.

We contacted this really old typical guatemala native the other day, he hardly even spoke spanish, but he had a dead baby chicken in is hand, and we were like what the heck, what are you doing with that, he said he was going to throw it out, but then he put it in his pants pocket. hahaha, we were all laughing after, he actually put a dead chicken in his pocket. it was funny.
you'll have to meet some old guatemalan natives here one day, they're so funny haha, just so out of the loop.

oh ya, so for that last package, just like some facial wash and clearasil, and what ever good stuff you see. I donno, and q tips maybe. surprise me.

and wow, only 14 weeks left. time flies. Elder Tanner is in my district and he goes home in 2 though. so we always talk about baggy things together, what we're going to do when we get back home and stuff. we're going to hang out next time I go to Arizona.

but yeah, these next two changes I'm telling myself that I'm going to workout good every morning, and maybe I'll buy some protien powder or something, and get some of that muscle mass back.
that reminds me, if you guys can pay off my credit card that would be great, i took money out cuz i ordered another suit., and just to have some spare money if i need it.

I think thats all i got this week. Sure love you guys. Take care, and be wise.
From Guatemala, With Love,
Elder Hopkins xoxoxoxo
