I am outta here in like 6 days!!!!! I got flight plans Friday night and I am so excited! I leave at 4:50 on Tuesday morning and I fly to Atlanta. Then from Atlanta to Peru and then I have a bus ride to get to the mission home. So yeah it is like 20 something hours of travel. I get into Peru at like midnight so its gonna be a long day...
My week this week wasn't anything amazing just the same old stuff. Alright so last Tuesday our devotional speaker served in Lima Peru so we chatted with him after and that was cool.
Wednesday was a crazy day we taught tons of lessons and we got to Skype a guy in Ecuador. It kinda sucked though. Skype is not the best communication when you are trying to learn a language cause the lag chops up words and then you can't see there gestures or mouths moving to figure out words. So that was hard. And his kids kept climbing all over which was funny cause the kids were cute. They spoke a little English so we would ask a question in Spanish and they would answer in English and they would be so proud it was hilarious! Later that night we talked with a investigator named Maribel she is super cool. We got to ask her all about what it is like to be an investigator and how we can make our lessons better. So that was cool but of course it was in Spanish and she is Mexican so she speaks very fast!
Thursday was fine it was our last lesson with Julio but no one told us so that was sad. He is our friend but anyway it was a cool lesson. We have our pamphlets (I hate that word it is hard to spell in English) and one of the English ones goes through all the rooms of the temple. It shows pictures and explains each room but since it was English I had to translate. So that was way hard but he loved the lesson so I think I did an ok job. That night was fun though we got to be trc investigators for one of the new districts. It was super fun and it felt kinda good cause then you can see that you really are learning. I remember that I was there not to long ago and now I can talk pretty well.
Let's see then it was Friday. I got my flight plans and we spoke Spanish all day. That day so that was cool but I also had double class which is when I have 6 straight hours of class instead of having it broken up. I hate having it like that but oh well.
Saturday was the 24th so that meant I have been here one month. Woohoo! Only like 22 months and a few days more!!!! haha! Anyways we had service and had to clean bathrooms again bleh!! Then we had class but our class has just been reviews. Which are good for some people but I get really bored and so I play with silly putty and talk a lot!! Let's see we had double class again cause of women's conference. Oh! but we did play in the rain cause it won't rain in Peru so we have enjoyed the days of rain. We splash in puddles and just lay out in it haha! The only down side is we couldn't play soccer till Monday but on Monday I got 2 goals so that was fun!
Sunday was chill so that was good. I did have to give a prayer in sacrament meeting but then we just hung out and cleaned and stuff till the devotional. The guy was awesome. I don't remember his name but he was funny and he would have us stand up and answer questions. It was super funny! Then we went and watched the 17 Miracles movie. I have seen it before so I kinda fell asleep a little but oh well.
Monday was a normal day it was weird to not teach all day though. We did our practice ones but those don't count cause it is just with each other. But we studied and we started this thing where we go around the room and tell a story or something you like about each person. My district was pretty funny doing it cause not many of us know each other very well. So it was funny to watch. But yeah then I just hung out with Johansen a bit and we all reviewed commands. They are easy in Spanish and we always use them so most the class was us yelling funny commands at each other.
Today has been fine we got up and did some laundry and then we hung out and emailed a little. Then we went and played volleyball, then we showered and now we are emailing again. I need a haircut but I am so scared cause peoples haircuts are either really good or really horrible. So yeah I'm a little frightened. I love and miss you all sooooooo much thanks so much for the packages this week and my next email will be from Peru!!!!!! Love you guys!!!! Be safe and have an amazing week!
