So my Birthday, Conference and Zone Conference made it for a pretty wild week! It definitely wasn’t the same as home but the members here made sure we were all set. On my birthday this last Thursday we had zone conference, which I thought was an awesome way to spend the day. We talked a lot about why we have goals and that by setting goals and always remembering them we can accomplish anything. Apparently they always bring in dominos for zone conference so I thought that was freaking dope! hahaha They also had costco cookies there!!! Not gonna lie it was pretty dang awesome. Everyone sang to me too but that isn’t my favorite thing in the world, as you know. Before we left for Frontera we walked by the temple and it is super cool as always! For my birthday that night the bishop and his wife made me a cake and empanadas it was freaking dope! They help us out so much it’s the best. Friday another Hermana in the ward made me a cake called carlota and it is soooo good. The people here are so awesome they really would give you all they have if you asked for it. Also, thanks for the birthday package Mom. I think I’ll be good on the snacks for a while. hahaha.
The people here are really awesome it’s so dope! The Spanish is actually coming along pretty good. I can understand most of what it said it just takes me a little time to form sentences. Transfers are on the 22 and there is a good chance I’ll be getting a Latino comp because my comp may start to train some of the new missionaries coming in. We have 26 new missionaries coming and 22 going home so my comp will probable train another gringo. Oh there’s no way the hammocks gonna fall. There are these huge hooks in the wall. They have them everywhere because it’s so hot sleeping in a bed!
Holy balls conference this weekend was so sick!!! The bishop let us go to his house and watch it in English which was way better because the Prophet and Apostles have so much expression in their voices. I can’t believe they are changing church to 2 hours that is crazy! I think that will make it easier to get investigators to go to church knowing that it’s only 2 hours. It may be just an hour less but that will make a huge difference I think! Wow! 12 new temples that’s going to be awesome! They are spreading all around the freaking world, it’s insane. hahaha. I think one of my favorite talks was by Elder Bednar with the rope thing and that by these changes and this revelation we are only strengthening the gospel and the Lords church. It was so cool to see everyone speak. I love conference and it was nice to take a little "break" from the regular mission day lol.
Today for p-day we went and played soccer with the whole zone. It was super fun but you can only play for a little while because it gets so dang hot in the middle of the day! Hahaha at least my arms and face are going to get freaking black down here! Oh and you would be proud of me mom. I used your nice little cookbook to make crepes this morning! Tasted like homeJ hahaha.
The weeks are flying by already. I seriously can’t believe it. Lets see what happens this week!
Love you all! The church is true.
