I can't believe how the time has flown by! I found Brittany the other day. Actually I've seen her several times in passing, but never long enough to say anything of note. So I'm gonna have to find sometime to say hi. I did see Eston Humphry on Wed. I don't know if you know him, he's from Oak Harbor. Any way things just keep plugging along down here. The spanish is coming, much better than it was. I still make tons of mistakes and am not very good, but I guess that's what the MTC is for right. So we actually exceeded our goal of 40 lessons in Spanish last week, we taught 43! It was great. One day we taught 9 I think and by the end of the day our brains were in pain from all the thinking:)
Oh thank you for the package! The Elders LOVE the markers. I pulled them out and their faces just lit up. Kind of funny the things we get excited about down here. Oh my teacher was even more excited than the Elders. The jackets are cute thank you.
Someone tell Jaime thanks for the email. I'll try and write her a letter this week!
Oh so something fun , our Relief Society speaker on Sunday was Sister Dalton. She is amazing, she talked a lot about what power we have because we know who we are. I know that I am a daughter of the Most high God. There is power that comes from that, I can use that power to teach and to help others know that they too are children of God. One of the other things she talked about that I liked a lot was to Smile. Ok so I think I've got this down pretty good. I do smile a lot. She reminded us that this is a happy gospel and we have so much to be happy about. Others will want to know what it is that causes us to be so happy.
Um let's see.. Oh I heard some one say this week that Missionaries are like Diamonds on black velvet. I thought that was prety cool. We are sent out to the world to teach the word of God, and that sets us apart. We stand in stark contrast to the things around us. We are a focal point, and others will be drawn to us and want to learn more. That is so true!
It's crazy to think that I only have 2 1/2 weeks left here before I'm out in Argentina doing all this for real. I'm kinda excited though. So what else....So this is so short, I'm writing kinda slow today.
Oh Mom, don't worry about a muffin, I've got plenty of goodies to last awhile. As you gather things together for another package can you get my spanish dictionary from my room, it's the picture one and also the verb book. I keep meaning to ask for them and always forget.
Oh so there is an Elder in my district, Elder Robinson from Gilbert, Az. It's really funny he reminds me a lot of Matt. Just the way he talks and a few mannerisms, so we were at dinner the other day and we talking and he said that I remind him of his sister Emily. So I thought that was pretty fun. The Elders are so entertaining. I don't remember If i told you about the time that we went up to the temple for a walk on Sunday and Elder Robinson had a back pack. Well he pulls out a bag of cookies, awesome, followed by....a pillow, genious. folllowed by an umbrella. So he lays out, takes off his shoes, falls a sleep on the pillow and uses the umbrella to block the sun. The things these Elders come up with.... I'm so glad I know them.
Well, that's it.
Love you all,
