I'm chilling here in the Cyber, next to my homie Elder Lopez!! I love it here in Xalapa! It's a big change from Plaza Verde. It's cool and hip and big and a little high class! It's just the work is a little bit harder.
I keep thinking of the poetic words of Dad before I left for my mish! He said hey son don't fret about the language one day you'll just wake up speaking and thinking en Espanol! Well I feel like that promise came true! One day we were just walking and talking and I realized that I was just talking and thinking in Spanish. I felt a little shocked that I was thinking in spanish and talking it! I laughed!
The new house is really small. I'm sorry I haven't taken any pictures my address is Z mercado and the colonial is sebastian or something I really don't know but I'll figure it out! It is a really small place. It's just two rooms - the first room is the study and kitchen and the second is the sleeping area and there's a sheet separating us from the shower and the toilet! But I like it.
Yeah Mom, I have a phone but It's a brick or here they say es un cacahuete! No mom, we don't have ipads. If we had an Ipad we'd get jumped right on the spot!
I'm eating good! I'm still trying to save me money. I'm a little bit behind on the money sitch because of my wallet being stolen. So one time we were walking just leaving a charla and right after we had to go to the noche barrio which is like a 40 min walk. We were late and I didn't have any money to pay the taxi so I was thinking what we could do! I had my head down thinking and walking. And all of a sudden I saw 20 pesos rolled up laying on the ground looking like a cigaret butt!! It was just the right amount to pay for the taxi! (manna from Heaven right)
Well this week was chill. I'm a little sad because Elder lopez and I have been finding great people, but not great enough to accept the church! We have a family that we are teaching and the dad is reading the Book of Mormon! It's just that every Sunday he gives us excuses why he can't go to church! I don't know what we are doing wrong. We are going to work with them (Jaun y Nancy) for a little while longer!
The ward here is awesome!! I love working here! I had an interview with the President last week! I love the interviews with President Greer, he is a great guy! He made me District Leader.
I love it here in Mexico, I can't imagine being anywhere else. Really, I don't have the words to describe it! The people are so loving. During my interview with the Pres I'll admit I cried realizing that 10 months of my mission has gone by. I don't know if I'm doing everything that I can. I am working hard.
I love you all!
