A little awkward, but oh well right??? And that girl, Hermana Stevens, was amazing!!! Amanda, this girl wanted you to know that your book has touched so many lives!! It really has!!! I have almost passed it to everyone in the CCM!!! And Hermana Stevens left this morning at 3 to go to her mission….. It was sad, but it will all be ok. Thank you for learning Spanish!!!! I love Spanish!!!! I should let you know, that all those verbs mean, he, she, or you (formal) are doing those!! The verbs beber, comer, correr, and… can not remember the last one, mean to to drink, to eat, and to run, and you have to congugate them to fit the person doing them!!!! Confusing right???? but keep going!!!!! 🙂 I love the shakers!!!! I want pictures!!!!!!!! And Ethaniel sounds adorable!!!!!!!! I want to meet him so bad!!!! Just have to wait 17 months 😉 And good job Zach!!!!! I want to see you play when I get home!!!!! And I am so glad Kake is subbing in for me!!!!!!!!!! That makes me feel better!!!!!!!!
Anyways, here are some highlights from my week to share with you all!!!! First off, Emily!!! who is your anatomy and Physiology teacher and did you take it at BYUI???? Or do you know a Linda Buckley???? Let me know!!! Also this week, I finally got a blessing. I had realized that I never got one from my dad before I left, which made me sad, and then I decided I really needed one. It was amazing!!! Elder Estrada and Elder Zohner gave it to me. Basically, they said part of my Patriarticle (spelling?? who knows.) Blessing. I KNOW that priesthood blessings really worked!!! It worked for me and it was amazing!!!!!! So I have “obtained” a status in my district (for one day). I was known as the joke girl. I told the heaven with ducks joke, and made Elder Neuhaus the brunt of it, and everyone loved it! But my english sucks, so when I tried to tell another one, the delivery was completely off, so I lost it. Anyways, chocolate down here is AMAZING! Love it so much! I also got to see fireworks!!!!! AWESOME! And thank you Ash and Kake for the letters!!!!! I loved them!!!!! Also on Saturday, guess what I got to do…. I WENT PROSLYTING!!!! (Forget spelling!!!! I can not spell anymore!!!) It was so funny, we are all scared, it is our first time, and one of the Latinos, as he is walking out the door, turns around and says “I WANT MY MOMMY!” Hahahahaha!!!! Killed us! I got to ride in a taxi to the area, and it was so scary. but we will talk about that in a minute. I did not get to say a lot. Dang. Spanish is crazy. But I did get to help an old lady!!!! Out of me and my companion, I am the scripturian! I can pull scriptures out of nowhere!!!! I gave this little old lady a scripture about how Christ can help us through our trials, and she totally wants to see the missionaries again!!! YES!!!!!! I am also the new Sister Leader!!! Along with Hermana Black!!! Basically, we are incharge of the girls!!! Pretty cool! I also met my Mission President this week!!!!!! He is super cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can not wait to get out there!!!!!!!!! On a sadder note, guess what I found out about on Sunday. Not Thursday, Sunday. I found out about President Monsons wife!! Yeah nobody thought to tell us!!!!! In the middle of sacrament meeting, this guy stood up and said something along the lines of “Our prayers are with President Monson during the time of the loss of his wife.” And EVERY girl in that room said “What!?!” and EVERY guy in that room said “Oh… Did not you know?” Super awkward…….. But it is ok….. Now on a strange note, I have a story to make you all laugh. So Sunday night, we all walk up to our room, me, hermana Black, Buckley, and Wolf, when Hermana Buckley says “You guys… What would you do if you came up here after classes, open the door, and turn on the light, and there was a man in here….”, so we created this situation: You come up from class, go to the room, open the door and turn on the lights, one of us is dead on the floor, and out comes a man from behind the bunk bed, with a knife, what would you do?…. Anyways, I said I would stand my ground and Hermana Black says “I actually have no idea.”… Guess what comes next… we create the scenerio, minus the man. Hermana Wolf is laying on her bed pretending to be dead, Hermana Buckley is hiding behind the bunk bed, and my and Hermana Black are out in the hallway. so we get all into it, open the door, and turn on the lights… I stand my ground, and Hermana Black runs screaming from the room all the way down the hallway!!!!!!!!!! It was so funny!!! Apparently she took it so far, that when Hermana Buckley came from around the bunk bed, she saw a big fat man, with a beard and moutace coming for her!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Oh the things we do. anyways, scary story!!! Today I had Interpol (basically go get your peruvian licence, which took us…6 hours. Kill me. But in the end we got McDonalds. NEVER has that tasted so good before. Some of the elders almost started crying.) and we were in this car. DRIVING DOWN HERE IS THE SKETCHIEST THING EVER! Look at that picture of a road. Now picture those everywhere (just so you know, that is a 2 lane road), and there are NO roads that make sense! You are literally cutting everyone off!!! We get so close to other cars, that I could lick them as we are passing them! We even got a guy to go read the Book of Mormon, we were so close!!!! Yeah, it is so scary!!!! I think I am praying the whole time in the car. I usually block that from my mind, because I do not want to have nightmares!!
Anyways, I am going to go early, so I can copy down quotes!!! Please let me know how you guys are doing!!!!!! Here is some stuff for you in spanish!!!! Yo se que la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santo de los Ultimos Dias es muy verdadero. El Libro de Mormon es la palabra de Dios y José Smith es un profeta verdadero. Yo se que misiones son meyor cosa en el todo munda!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways, there you go!!1 Until next time, ALLON-SY!!!!!!!
