So Elder Hoffman and I, along with three other companionships all live in the same casa. It is a great blessing because we have heard the dorms are really crappy. Every night before we go to bed, we hear at least three gunshots that are close, then some machine guns that are a little farther away. Mexican Independence Day is coming soon, the thirteenth, and we have heard from our teachers that things get pretty crazy! haha Also, there are ten people in my district and so far 4 of them have been really sick and had to go to the clinic. That is no good, but I am feeling healthy and fine. I'm so busy and love my district so much, that I haven't gotten home sick yet, which is a blessing in itself.
My district is awesome! The Hermanas are super sweet and nice, we all get a long very well. We have gym time everyday, except for Sundays. We play a lot of sand volleyball with the district that our zone leaders are in. They all leave which is sad because they are super sweet to us and they have really helped us and taught us. Right now, the thing I am most worried about is my Spanish, but when you have the Spirit with you, you find yourself saying things you didn't know you could say. It's crazy, I have only been gone a couple days, but I have had the most spiritual experiences I have ever had. Last night, my casa mates all got together with 8 companionships of native speakers and one companionship of english Elders, that are really cool, and we had a Family Home Evening. We all bore our testimonies in our native tongue, which was way cool because even though we didn't speak the same language, we all understood through the Spirit. The native Elders have been teaching us so much; they are a great blessing to me. I will send a pic of some of them later, but I can't do pics right now.
I love you guys and I have been missing you guys a lot, but I am doing the right thing!
PS P-day isfor me
Luke and Logan, there are some beautiful birds here, bright blue and green ones, that will talk back to you. It is pretty crazy!
