Not much has really happened I am improving on my Spanish but not really a whole bunch I kind of have hit a plateau I think. this week my zone did an English fast from Sunday-Wednesday so we didn’t speak any English (well the least amount of English we could) it was good but soooo boring it is definitely not as fun to be the only white people in the whole ccm not speaking English but we definitely pushed ourselves. I got to the point where I really started to miss English. My district makes fun of me because I have a totally different personality in Español than I do in English. apparently when I speak Spanish my eyes get super huge and I get really intense and start moving my hand like a rapper I didn’t notice it but I have been working on not looking so crazy like a loca abuelita when I speak Spanish. I don’t need to scare of all those investigators haha.
The food here is so so so good!!!! I literally love all the food even though I didn’t think I would I literally ate tamales every meal yesterday and I have never been so happy the tamales are literally so good!!!!!! Every day i pray for tamales!!!! The green salsa is so good I could drink it I put it on chips everyday at lunch!! THEY HAVE SALSA HERE ON TUESDAYS THAT TASTES JUST LIKE ELMERS!!!!! It is in like this huge vat and I could just drink it its so good!!!!!!!
I haven’t gotten sick!! Literally all everyone talks about is how the food just goes right through ya but I have been holding strong. Everyone is in the bathroom like all day and they elders have all begged there moms to send baby wipes I guess the food is pretty bad on some people.
It smells just like El Centro here I feel like it isn’t going to be super weird being here for thanksgiving because it is exactly how every other thanksgiving has been for me that awful sewage smell, weird Bermuda grass, and really good tamales. You guys are the ones missing out!!!!
This week we watched this old devotional elder Bednar gave at the Provo mtc for Christmas like 3 years ago it was literally the best talk I have ever heard in my entire life if you find it on the internet it is literal gold. He said that it is not enough to just have a testimony a testimony is knowing something is true but we have to live a life of conversion continually living and applying what we know to be true!!!!
Have a good thanksgiving sorry I don’t have much to say or any pics this week it has been wayyyy fast I only have 2.5 weeks left here and then I’m off to Honduras!!!!!!!! It is so crazy!!! I love you all and will talk to you on thanksgiving!!!!
