Father's Day

Happy Father`s Day and Happy Anniversary! I would first like to start off by saying dad I love you so much. There is one thing that I can`t stop doing on my mission and it`s thinking about you dad. I hope one day you will realize the impact you have made in my life. There are some very dark days in my mission where I just feel like it`s time to come home and the first thing I think about is you. You really are the biggest strength in my mission. I love you and I hope that you had a really good father`s day. Second if you didn`t do anything for your anniversary I hope you still had "fun". hahaha.... If you are thinking right now... he`s a missionary and shouldn`t be saying this... Well I`m still Colton Llewelyn and I make the joke that we should be handing out more chastity pamphlets especially to the dogs.
The white handbook it states do not be preoccupied with writing your family everyweek!! How can I not!!! My family is the best thing in the world!!! This is the thing that keeps me going so please keep on sending them! Well if you were wondering! MY HALF BIRTHDAY AND 4 MONTH MARK ARE ON THURSDAY!! This week was pretty good! We found two people who are ready to be baptized but one has work on Sunday and the other is 16.... Which makes things difficult but this week we will make them a for sure date!! I was also thinking that for my half birthday I am going to go all out and buy a Fanta grape flavored in the glass bottle and maybe buy some Tortrix to top it off!
Today while shopping in WalMart I recieved some very good advice from a 67 year old man. He said,"Woman are like the ocean." I feel that one day he will be famous for this saying... haha ok he just talked to us for 30 minutes. That`s the way in Guatemala. If they see a gringo (white person) that is preaching the gospel they think that means they just want to talk about Jesus so they talk, just them, for an hour. I can usually get in a word but it is usually adios. It is very rainy here. It rains everyday and the streets turn into rivers. I like to imagine myself frolicking in the street but no we just contact houses and they usually look at us like we are crazy. Your standing in a river asking if you can come into my house.
Well I love you very much family and I hope all is well with everyone!! Have a good week and thank you for sending the photos of the cabin!! That really is the craziest thing! I wish I was there to see it but I`m here in Guatemala preaching the word!!!!
