Hello Everybody! Love all you guys and here is a little update from Elder Dyl.

Got my "kid" on tuesday Elder Sherle. (Im training elder sherle and am his "father") Elder Sherle is from Boise Idaho and plays ball! We get along great and I know he is gonna be a sick companion! I will not lie, it is a little difficult that he speaks basically no spanish but we are gonna have success. I know it!

We found a cool guy named osman this week and he came to church with us. As we were walking to church he lit up a fat cigar. We are gonna work on that this week.

Also the other night as we were walking home through the jungle, a teenager came up to us and told us that there was a group of about ten guys waiting to jump us and rob us. I went straight dora on those dudes and boots and I took a different river home.

God is always with us and has a plan for everyone of his children. I love all of you guys. Take it super sleezy this week!


Como estan locos? Things are stilly pretty sleezy(this means “sweet/easy” in Dylan’s vernacular) down here in esteli and im still having a great time. Aside from being groped and nearly assulted by a pack of teenagers, it has been a pretty chill and uneventful week.

Got some news this week that will be pretty crazy. On saturday we got some news that my companion, Elder Sotay, would be leaving esteli and will be going to work in puerto cabezas on the other side of nicaragua. I recieved news that i would be staying in esteli and would be training a new guy. At first I was like cool im a little nervous but as long as its not a white guy ill be good.

Spanish is life now and so now whenever i have to talk in english it is just a pain in the butt. My spanish is pretty good but not anything close to where i want it to be. I remember thinking, president isnt crazy, he wouldnt put two brand new americans together, but then again we do only get 30 minutes to write home so who knows haha.

Our zone leaders sent us the picture and name of the dude i would be training and gosh dang it i got a white one. I have tried several times to trade with other missionaries in my area but no one wants the white guy. I am going to try to explain to president that im the phil jackson of esteli and need my kobe or my michael! I hope president is in a fantasy league because i am calling for a re draft. All jokes aside, i am excited for the opportunity to have my first kid ( in the mission trainers are fathers and trainees are their kids). Its gonna be tough that really neither of us know mexicaneese very well, but i know God is gonna help me and my companion.

 classic scripture to end.

And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.

Love you guys so much. Take it super sleezyyyyyy this week.

Hello Ladies and Gents. Your weekly update from Mogly. Its great hearing from you guys everyweek. Keep the emails and dear elders comin porfa. This week the winner was bryce with that awesome touchdown. I honestly teared up a little bit- one because that stiff arm was so beautiful and two because i felt a little bad for all the little pipsqueaks out there trying to pull bryce's flag. Man among Boys!!!

I will start with the bad news.

New rule was implemented in the mission this week- we only get 30 minuntes on the computer. So ya haha. It stinks big time but i am having a good attitude about it grandma dont worry! I now get to take a big nap in the giant hammock in our house and have more cookie eating time. So its good.

Good news. We have a bunch of people we could possibly baptize this month. Pretty stoked for that. Nicas are funny people. Everyone wants to get baptized and knows its important. The problem is that no one ever wants to go to church. These nicas love sleepin in and love planning trips to disneyland on sundays (i dont actually know where they go but i figure most people like disneyland so that is my first guess).

I love all of you from the bottom of the rash on my butt that is now currently developing!
I dont know how sleezy my emails will be in the future because of this new rule buuuuuutttt, i will try to bring a little humor to the table every week.

Take it sleezy. Love you guys.

Hello people! Hope you all are doing well and having fun with the crazy school year life once again.

This week i got an authentic Nicaraguan baseball jersey. Los Boers baby! I even got a big 25 put on the back of it. Needless to say, my companion thinks it is a little weird that i sleep with it and wear it 24/7 around the apartment. He also doesn't understand why i wear two socks. I told him i think its weird that he pours syrup on his fruit loops and that he air dries (after showering) his ENTIRE body using the fan every morning. We are even for the time being.

Today I ate snake, which was pretty sleezy of me if i do say so. While we were waiting for the food we went and messed around with some monkeys, that are all over the restaurant, and poked a crocodile with a stick. I was served an entire boa constrictor along with some rabbit. The rabbit was like slimy chicken and and i honestly cannot tell you what boa tastes like. Tasty yes, or i think so. I was hungry. It was a little difficult to find the meat amongst the hundreds of tiny vertebrae and left over intestines haha. All in all a cool experience and you will have to come down to Nicaragua to find out what it really tastes like. As we were leaving, we were informed that next week they would have bull testicles. We will be making a return visit.

Also in other news, this week i was assaulted. One of our younger lady investigators gave me a kiss good bye on Saturday night. My companion and i are constructing some sort of apparatus to put over my head to prevent this from reoccurring in future visits.

This week it rained. Now when i say that I'm not talking about the wussy off and on sprinkle that we get in California. It rained. Very, very, very hard. The entire city was flooded and for the first time since i left home in may, i was actually cold. My batman blanky has come in handy ;).

Saying that i should have brought a wetsuit is very much an understatement. I waded through knee deep, muddy water for the majority of the last week. It was fun for the first five minutes as i thought "Im so bear gryls wading through this crazy river in the jungle with my back pack over my head." Then i realized that mud and water in the crotchal region all day is not as a amazing as i hoped it would be. Dreams crushed and rash developing.

My companion, more than i, needed a wetsuit this week. We were walking along in downtown one day and all of the sudden he vanished. He had fallen into a giant manhole that we were not able to see because the entire street was flooded up to our knees. He emerged a second later gasping for air and had to swim to get out of the whole. It was amazingly hilarious to watch this fat little Guatemalan kid, in his big yellow over coat, swim around and emerge from the giant brown puddle. We had a good time and always kept a good attitude even though we didn't have wetsuits (i failed to explain to Elder Sotay what a wetsuit is haha) and were muddy, wet, and exhausted.

Attitude is everything. That has been the theme of my mission so far and i am quickly learning how a good attitude allows us to truly do hard things. Found something cool in the bible this week.

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts

I'm having some crazy experiences down here and I love all of them. Love the hard things and remember God is always with us.

Love you guys. Take it Sleeeeeeeeeezyyy.
