Can’t Think of a Clever Subject Line. I Had One. I Know I Did.
Things in Peru are going great. It’s hard to believe how much faster this week went. I think I needed two things that I didn’t have my first week: hard feet and a soft heart. Now I’m working on inner thighs that never chafe.
I’m not sure how much my Spanish is improving, but I can at least have comfort in knowing my English is getting worse. No, in reality, Spanish is getting a whole lot better. People are generally surprised when I tell them it’s my second week in the campo, so I am very grateful for that. If I listen, I can usually understand 80% of what’s happening. Listening seems to be the problem at times.
Thanks for the picture. I almost forgot how good I look in brown.
You are all the best missionaries. I’m sure the fireside was great. I just feel terrible realizing now that I was such a lazy missionary just a few months ago. Thanks for being good examples.
Ooh, and none other than Craig C Christensen of the presidency of the seventy is coming on Wednesday and speaking to the Lima West and Central missionaries. No big deal.
It’s great having a district leader as your trainer, not only because he’s a good missionary, but also because I get to see the strengths of all the missionaries during splits. That has been helping a lot.
Also, I’m not sure how informal the Peruvian word "bacan" is, so I figure if I use quotation marks, I’m safe on the rules. [note from Mom: I looked up the word “bacan,” and it is Peruvian slang on the word “bueno,” but it means more like “cool” or “wicked.”]
Love you all! Don’t worry about me, I love it here.
