Okay so this week was awesome I love love being a missionary. My Spanish is pretty good I don’t use notes in lessons anymore and I can talk to people no problem I chat it up with the workers all the time!! Everyone says I speak like a native and that my accent is really good and I can speak as fast as Mexicans too!! But I still have a long ways to go and Honduran Spanish is nada like the Spanish here.
Hahaha this week I didn’t have hardly any total big time Spanish screw-ups so that is good!!! So the first Sunday here was fast Sunday and my whole zona (which is my branch) all bore our testimonies in Spanish. thennnnnn this week was just a normal Sunday so they do this thing where they give everyone a topic ahead of time and then after sacrament they call 4 names and those are the people speaking right then in solo Español. Well they called the 4 names and I was good but little did I know after the musical number they call 4 more people to speak so they call 3 and then last but not least good ole Hermana Oram got to speak in church in solo Español on virtud her 2 domingo en la ccm. It went surprisingly well my talk was pretty good I talked about virtuous words and how we should lift each other up and now that we are missionaries we really need to watch our words. After the meeting the branch president’s wife came up and said my Spanish was very good. She was just being nice I was shaking like a Chihuahua up there.
I totally made a fool of myself in front of the ENTIRE CCM!!!!! i was helping my companion who was playing for the choir at this devotional a member of the seventy was speaking at by turning the pages for her well after the song I was supposed to turn off this light behind the piano up on the stage welllllll I couldn’t get the light to turn off for the life of me and the MTC president was at the podium waiting for me to turn it off and I was hardcore struggling and everyone was just staring at me and like 2 minutes later i got the light of after shaking it and hitting it and then having my companion help me..... Then I was walking down from the stage super super nervous and i tripped on the step and barely caught myself and then I scurried to my seat to have the mtc presidents wife glaring at me. I felt so bad I said a million lo sientos to the mtc first counselor and his wife and told them how sorry I was that I totally screwed up the whole thing and made the spirit leave after the perfect song...... okay maybe its one of those you had to be there things hahah but it was way embarrassing and people still are talking about it..................
Hermana Oram is killing here jajajajajjaa
This week we have two investigators Lugo y Marisela they are both great (well actually they are our techers that just pretend to be investigators and we have to pretend got to their pretend house and it is all super fake but really good practice)
I finally started eating the food here this week I ate all the entree meals and cut out my nutella sandwiches I am literally the only person in the entire ccm that hasn’t gotten diarrhea. seriously everyone is getting sick and I am healthy as a caballo (knock on wood) but really the food is pretty good it looks gross but before I eat anything I bless it that it will taste good and that I will be able to muscle it all down and that I wont get sick from it. Its worked pretty well so far.
My district plays volleyball every day for gym we are actually all super good now and out games get super intense. Hermana nelson (from on the plane and she is in my district) are the only ones who played in high school but it is so much fun our district is super close and we all get along and love hanging out together.
I have memorized so many things in Español not to brag but seriously it is helping me learn so fast I have the primera vision Moroni 10:4-5 and the whole D&C section 4 and a bunch of other missionary things like bautismal invitacion y su objetivo.
Yo se que la iglesia es verdadera. yo se que el libro de mormón es verdadero y que José Smith trudujo con el poder de dios. yo se que dios es amoroso y bendice nos con un profeta viviente Thomas S. Monson. yo se que Thomas S. Monson es un profeta de dios. yo se que Jesucristo es my Salvador y mi hermano y que el murio por nuestros pecados y que a traves la Expiacion nos podemos vivir con Dios.
Sorry my grammar is super bad and I don’t capitalize anything. I love you all!!!!!
