1st P-Day Email! - with pictures:)
Hey guys!!!! this place is amazing! i dont have much time so im just going to randomly say as much as possible so i dont run out of time! we only have 30minutes to write.... we are the first group ever to stay in EL Cantera which is the name of the mission home we are staying at! there are like 40 of us in the house and its was big! and very pretty!! there are alot of latinos and latinas and they are so awesome!!! they are amazed at us haha we stand out quite a bit! me and the three others, two of them you met at the airport in utah, are our own district! and.... Im the District Leader :) its a lot of responsibility but really awesome and really a big blessing to be! i have to teach sunday school on sundays to my disctrict which isnt too bad since there is only 4 of us, but its still a little scary but way good to learn! ive got a new found confidence since coming to the mtc! im alwasy answering questions, always participating in front of everybody and always volunteering! plus... on sunday i was the first and 1 of 3 americans or gringos and we get called sometimes haha but i was the first one to bear my testimoney and i did it in spanish! haha it was way cool! the spanish is getting there.... its still very hard to communicate with the people here.. we can only pick out words here and there in the sentences and then guess what the person was saying! they didnt really teach us sentence structure so our spanish is very rough when we answer back but its understandable so it works!! we are learning though and greatly improving each day, we can all now bear our testimonies and pray and give basic lessons plus ask the more commoon questoins and introductions and such! its very nice to be able to talk to people though! Chile is amazing! extremely modern and extremely busy!
