Que Pasa?!? Pretty much I'm just ready to get out of the MTC! 5 Dias mas! We are are all ready to go but just not ready with spanish. Haha! But I'll get it!
Last Friday I went on splits with the missionaries in the Oeste mission. We got on the subway and went forever away! We get there, and then I've never seen a more poor place in my life! I was walking up the street and there was this mattress that was like paper thin laying in the gutter and the family would take turns laying down. I don't think I've ever seen something like that before - but then a thought came to my mind and I pictured all of these people in the Celestial Kingdom with their families. This is why this work is so important. These people that have nothing, can have everything if they accept the Lords gospel and turn to him!
Fridays are "wash days" for them so when we went out with the missionaries it was a party in the streets! Music was blasting and everyone is outside! I heard the coolest spanish reggae rap song! It's probably good I can't understand the words yet to it but it was bumpin!! haha
The first house we were teaching these people and their house was 15 by 20 ft and made of tinfoil! We taught them the importance of coming to church. They want to get baptized first but need to get married! The family accpeted the challenge to come to chruch i think.. haha if thats what i understood! All I could do really was just pray and bare my testimony! It's pretty cool though, the people help you with your spanish and not just laugh at you! We go out again tomorrow! I hope I can understand them more this time around!
I've been doing really good here. The only thing I have been really stressed about is the language. I am not doing very good with it but they say it will come. The people say to not worry about that and that the Lord with help you gain what you don't have. I can't lose hope on that. But after hearing not to worry about the language I have just been focusing on the Book of Mormon and the lessons. Then i realize I didn't do my best studying for the language. I'm nervous since i really didn't do my part with the language that I'm not gonna get it. I just need to not lose hope and everything will be fine!
It's all going good! I'm not gonna send my Ipod home because Hermana Romney put music on it for me!
And I don't know if I can call yet but if I have the opportunity in the airport I will! If not I get to email right when we land and get to the mission home!
Love and miss you too! Next time I talk to you I'll be in Puerto Rico!
