Well, how about this everyone, I turn 19 in 6 days! It’s MY BIRTHDAY!
I still feel and look like I'm 12 but hey, what can I do about it. So this week was interesting. My comp has been giving me a bad time about my Spanish and telling me that I should be doing a lot better and I just wasn’t going to take it anymore. He didn’t speak to me for 4 days and so I asked him, What's up? I just told him that if he had been in the states for 2 months his English would suck and he has been learning it for 10 months. So after that he was good. I don’t know what he expects. I’ve only been in the field 3 weeks and the members say I’m doing great! He is super impatient but that’s fine, I’m not going to let him get to me and I will just keep working hard.
Well, the teaching went great this week. We have been teaching a family, a mother and her 2 kids. The daughter Elizabeth is 13 and the son Daniel is 18. Daniel is studying at the University and so I have been teaching him English. They are a really great family. We committed them for baptism this week and so I am super stoked about that. SO finally having some luck here in Arequipa!
This weekend was way sweet! I got to watch General Conference and chow down some Nutella and Peanut Butter with my buddy from the District Elder Hildabrant. He’s a stud. I am going to play basketball with him today which is going to be so nice and a change from Soccer. Not going to lie, getting sick of soccer! haha Other than that we really aren’t doing much today. My pensionisste is the best. She is honestly one of my favorite people here and she is a really good cook so that makes it even better. Spanish is coming poco poco everyday and I’m trying my hardest to get it down. It’s finally starting to click though! Freak! haha I can understand every word that everyone is saying I just don’t know about 40% of the things they are saying! hahaha Everyday is better than the last. This week went by so fast! I got to see one of my best buddies from the CCM Elder Brown. He is so cool and we got to chill for a little while we were watching conference. He’s coming to play b-ball with us today as well. Oh, my comp and I are starting to hit the gym every morning. haha There is a gym close to our house that is only 10 bucks a month so boys I’ll be getting swoll everyday! So don’t even worry about it. So that’s my week! Love and miss you guys! Keep on living life to the fullest. Thanks for everything!
