Well how do I begin? I think I´m just gonna use bullet points to describe a little of what life is like here:
-Día de Padre (and Día de Madre) is HUGE here. Yesterday there were fiestas everywhere!
- Almuerzo (lunch) is the biggest meal here. It´s interesting but I kinda like it! Cena (dinner) is more like a bedtime snack.
- We eat mostly papas (potatoes), arroz (rice), and pollo (chicken). And also pan (bread), like little rolls. The food has a lot of different flavors, but it´s pretty good. Our pención makes the best food!
- There are perros (dogs) EVERYWHERE in the streets here! It´s seriously a miracle that I haven´t stepped in any dog poo yet hahaha.
- A lot of times we ride in motos to get around. They´re like if a motorcycle and a tricycle had a baby. I´ll send pics!
- Our shower water is pretty cold... at the warmest, it´s like pool water temperature!
This week we had another baptism, a jovencito named Ramiro. He is an awesome kid and I really admire his faith and testimony. He was confirmed yesterday in sacrament meeting and it was awesome. Another investigator we have who´s his age came to church by himself (and early) and I sat there amazed at the faith of these kids! I started crying (which is pretty unusual for me) because I totally felt the Spirit and am so happy to be, in some part, helping them and our other investigators come unto Christ. It´s the best feeling!
We also went to Immigrations this week and all the Norte Americanos were there. I´ve been stressing about my Spanish lately, but my comps said I can talk much better than some gringos we saw there who have been here like 6 months! So that was definitely a confidence booster!
So all is well! I´m gonna attach some pics :)
Love yáll :)
