Things have been great here!! I have really really enjoyed it here. It is a lot of work but it is totally worth it.This is by far the BEST decision I have ever made in my entire life… I get along with my companion really well. Its funny I have only known her for a week but it feels like we have known each other for months… She is crazy about working out so it helps keep me motivated! Everything is super busy here. A few days ago we had an earthquake here. We evacuated the buildings but it was just a small one. It was scary but really exciting actually haha! Today the alarm went off again so I started pushing people and started running out the building tell everyone to get out just to find out it was only a false alarm. lol! This week has had its ups and downs. I got blisters on my feet, gave me my nametag spelled wrong, and didnt give me a house key. But thats ok because we got all of that fixed :)! The first few days my compainion was struggling with homesickness. I left her a necklace with an encouraging note on her desk. Everyone is doing fine now though. The food here is really good but it hurts my stomach! Some of the girls here all gave each other nic names. Im hermana giggles. Hermana corbin is Hermana sweet blood because mosquitos like her blood hahaha!!! All of the other sisters laugh at me a lot because I guess Im funny? hahaha! We have been teaching an investigator all in spanish. The first time was really really hard because I didnt know what I was saying and he looked at me like I was crazy sometimes hahaha. It was really embarrassing… But it has gotten a lot better. I dont have to use as many of my notes anymore. Its amazing how the spirit can help you and guide you. That does not surprise me about kelci hahahahahaha… She just has such a big heart and huge care for animals. I dont know why but I am just completely focused! God must know what I need hahaha. I wont have time to write everyone because I have 22 emails and only have 1 hour… Its sad…. I love you so much.. Be safe and take care. I loved the Easter Stuff you got me!!! P day is seriously like Christmas here! Especially getting emails makes it the best day of the week. Its the best! Hope you all have started the “Rosetta Stone”. I love you all so much!
