okay, so the CCM. it is INCREDIBLE. It's enormous- 90 acres- and it is so gorgeous here! The majority of the trees grow purple flowers instead of leaves right now, so that looks amazing. Marissa, you would not believe how many different birds are down here! there are parrots- PARROTS- just flying around, squawking up a storm. You'll see them in my pictures.
so, it's been a busy week. We started teaching un investigador solamente en español, which was terrifying, starting. Still, he's reading the book of mormon, and he's coming to church so it's good. And dad, my mind has started to get a little fuzzy. Me and Elder Schoenfeld are rolling all of our Rs instinctively, and we do have to catch ourselves sometimes. But it's going along pretty well. Also we have to write five minute talks in español every week for church, even though we don't know who's speaking until they tell us after the sacrament. i still haven't gone, but I probably will soon.
Let me just take a minute and talk about the food. I don't think I have ever eaten so well outside of my own home. Dad, you were right about the fruit and the bread products. They are the best ever. Also, I may have consumed more juice than food the first few days. The juice is absolutely amazing. Some food I don't recognize, but I think it's delicious, so I don't really care.
Ok, so I'm going to close now. I only have an hour in here, and I want to be able to finish on time. Dad will have to translate for me. Yo quiero compartir mi testimonio a ustedes. Yo se que el Evangelio es verdadero. Yo se que nuestro Padre Celestial es amoroso, y Su Hijo, Jesucristo, es El Salvador. Este oportunidad tengo servir a el misionero es el mejor cosa en la tierra. En el nombre de Jesucristo, amen.
Well, I hope I didn't butcher that too much. I have to admit, i have not gotten homesick at all since I've been here. We all take care of each other, and my district and zone is the best. I'm enclosing some pictures, if I can. okay, so it looks like it' only the picture of the parrots. I guess I will send the rest later.
