So we got to host this past Wednesday!!! it was so awesome!! it was pretty tough though... There was this kid that I hosted for, and his luggage that was probably 50 pounds had no wheels on it! So I had to carry his heavy luggage and all his new books for almost a mile!!! it was not too fun haha :) But guess what... I got to host a kid from Hurricane!!! I'm not sure if you know him or not, but his name is Elder David Whimmer... He is going to Mexico on his mission.. I use to always see him at mission prep, but it was awesome that I got to be his host! he was pretty happy too to see a familiar face. :)
So want to hear something funny... one of my best friends in our zone, Elder Hansen, doesnt get Dear Elders throughout the week like me, so whenever I get one from you, he always acts like it is for the both of us! haha! He will be like "so how's our mom doing today?" or "so whats mom up to tonight?" and I always let him read the letters... It is so funny and I think he really likes reading my Dear Elder letters. He is such a funny kid, I will miss him! (He is going to Cordoba on his mission)
So to answer some of yours questions... I really think my spanish is coming along! I can understand mostly everything that I hear in spanish. I cant really say exactly what I want to say in spanish... but I can get pretty close! :)
So a couple of kids got sick in my district over this past week... They are all better now, but I never got sick!!! I think it is because of all those pills you guys have me taking to keep me healthy! so thanks for those. :) oh and thank you soooo MUCH for the package!!! it is awesome having that shirt for gym time! and tell dad thank you soo much for the pistachios! everyone loves them and we eat them every night haha :)
Thank you for sending me Tyson's email! I really loved hearing how he was doing! it sounds like my schedule is about the same as his, Wake, eat, study, eat, study, bed! haha But I am absolutely loving every second of it!
So there is still no word on our visa's... all of the kids that are going to Mexico have received theirs. But i'm not too worried about it. It would be pretty cool if I went in the states for just a little bit. :)
Well thank you guys so much for everything you do for me! I love you guys sooo much and you are in my prayers always! I hope you guys have a fun time in Park City! send me lots of pictures from that :) I love you guys! The Church is True!!!!!!!
Love, Elder Lawrence

Finally got to see/ talk to Sister Schimbeck! :) we talked for like 45 minutes! it was so awesome to see her! we can't be alone in the picture, so I grabbed my companion and she grabbed some girl from her district! haha it was really funny cause we can only shake hands :)
