hey its my pday.
mexico mtc is literally so great. so many nice grassy areas and its just like huge with a lot of voliebol courts and what not. basically the first day i just got here and ate some cold costco pizza and unpacked. there wasn’t hot water so my shower the next day was like really cold. but then it turns out there actually was hot water, i just turned the wrong knob. im on the top bunk and loving it. the first day i wore dumb black shoes and i got blisters and they are still there and super painful. there are some super nice people here but im pretty sure everyone here thinks im crazy. which i am. our district is so nice and they work really hard. i feel bad cause i get distracted or laugh really easily. also its cool cause theres so many latinos here that just come for 2 weeks. the first night it was just me and my companion in one house which was sorta sketch but then some latino sisters came the next day. its way fun to talk to them in my terrible spanish. but my spanish is getting better. we eat breakfast everyday and then have personal study and then like class and then more personal study and then lunch and then more study and then GYM TIME for an hour in which we usually play volieball and then more study and just like so much studying basically. the teachers are nice and really helpful. one of our teachers is american and one is hispanic but they are both great and funny.
the food is alright. a lot of tortillas and beans and i eat fruit and lettuce and they always have some crazy bread things. i also am still drinking a lot of water, my companion already noticed how often i pee. lolz. but also its sorta lame because girls and guys cant sit together at meals. but i met some nice girls but there their schedules changed so im sad.
oh also the first morning the latino sisters came she accidently woke up at 2 am and thought it was 630. dont worry, i let her know what was up. and then like it was so cute cause during their break they came up to us and wanted to take some pictures with us.
there were a lot of random like rainstorms this week and it always just rains after dinner. and then we were walking home at like 930 and it was raining and then all of a sudden it got sooo bright and it was loudest thunder ever. i was a little scared.
i really miss peanut butter
we get an hour for lunch and usually we eat in 30 and then i lay on the ground for 30. and everyone asks if i have died. its probably not allowed but no one has stopped me yet. also because of my blisters i walk around barefoot alot and its really nice. oh also during gym time i went on the bike. they have a lil gym.
we have this thing called TALL and its just like learning spánish on the computer and like the first time we went everyone was so confused and there was no teacher but it was fun. its super hard to stay focused by like 8pm though. we taught an investagator in spanish like the 3rd day here. so that was interesting. im already sick of my clothes.
saturday didn’t feel like saturday at alll. we just worked and ate and then we played vb like always. TALL is cool and really helpful
wearing a watch is pretty convenient.
there’s like a hundred fireworks everyday and no one knows why. at first people said they were guns so i was a little concerend but then i saw the fireworks. but seriously there are so many and for no reason.
our teachers tell us to sit with the latinos at lunch and talk to them so we do sometimes
sunday was coool. church was nice and there were devotionals about like saying specific prayers which was neat. on thursday they were like “we are gunna pick some people to talk on sunday but everyone needs to prepare a talk.” luckily i didnt have to. i didnt really write a talk.
on monday i wore my hair in buns and some people liked it
on tuesday we were supposed to have a service project but there was terrible planning and we ended up just like washing a building. my district is the best. sorry this email was the randomest thing ever. i love you guys and i misss everyone so much. but its way cool to be here. im learing so much and just like loving it. its so cool to look out and see these like mountains with houses on them. cause sometimes i forget i’m in mexico. i dont really understand the mail system cause this one guy was telling me about it but i wasn’t really listening. ill try to figure it out though. thanks for being so awesome
alsooo i am liking the atmosphere here it is soo spiritual and like we were teaching this investagotor lady. anyways i forget what the lesson was on, but i was bearing my testimony at the end and i started crying. i feel the spirit so much here and i love it. also i can pray in spanish now and bear my testimony. send me some pictures please we can print them out for free. also ya my p day is wednesday and we get to go to the temple every other week so thats cool.
