so fun fact, before i forget, i found out how to say eastwood in spanish haha so many of the people i meet cant say it! Hermana Madera del Este
haha so this week was good!
first of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! i love you(:
we had a cool thunderstorm night so that was fun!
it is so hot here, everytime im on the doorstep (this is TMI) i literally feel sweat dripping down my back always. haha livin the high life:)
haha but we had some good lessons this week! my home boy Juan Carlos is awesome! he needs to come to church though, so he can get baptized on the 30th. hes so awesome i love teaching him!
and i feel so proud of myself, cause im beginning to be able to understand and speak more spanish. its super hard, but im keeping on trying! i really like this quote,
"when i stand before God at the end of my life, i would hope that i would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "i've used everything you gave me.""
its so inspirational and it is motivating and i love it!(:
i dont really know what to say in this email, haha we have bikes again this week so YAY FUN! its gonna be really hot though, haha but we love it(:
my companion is the bomb, and we're starting week 5 of my first transfer so thats crazy!!
i am gradually starting to get over my fear of knocking, and im able to open my mouth more and talk more so im so happy about that.
the key ive learned is to take it one day at a time, and to forever have a prayer in your heart.
we met this one lady Ana and she is solid! we're going back to teach her, and i really have a lot of faith in her.
i am so grateful for the testimony i have, and the knowledge and comfort i have from this gospel. and i just wanna share it! im grateful i have this opportunity to share it, and its gonna be a good week because imma make it a good one!(: love you all!!!
-this is a picture of a ton of beer at a trailer park haha and my face is just priceless..it was a rough day temperature wise, like 92 degrees so we were dying so hard! but we met some potentials so its cool :)
