I love to teach so much! When teaching i can actually speak their language!! The FOOD IS BOMB!!! so much meat and pastas and bread! All so good! It´s crazy though.. everyone is literally living in shacks pretty much with 1 to 3 rooms but EVERYONE has dish with a huge flatscreeen inside it doesn´t look right but everyone has it!!! Our pension is tiny. 3 rooms for the 4 of us! Oh and that wind is gonna kill me! It's so windy!!!
Be grateful for everything back home! Be grateful for grass and trees! be grateful for a working bathroom and TOILET PAPER. gosh... haha I love the people here. I´m so down to talk to everybody and i kinda have to pull my companion along sometimes..or we´ll just post at a members house for a couple hours. I just wanna WORK!!!! This week I´m teaching english classes so I´m stoked about that.
I´m so happy i´m here! At times i think....why the heck am i here? but i quickly think of the eternal plan and these people NEED to hear the gospel. the less actives NEED to go to church! I want you back home to receive blessings! I could never say i regret giving it my all but i can regret not. So I´m gonna work work and work some more. I love you all!!!! Especially you mom!! The family unit is pretty strong here and i love that!!! Makes me miss you like crazy! Thank you for all the support!!!!!!!!!!! I´ll try to send some pictures right now:)
