Time to get to work!

11-4-13 Week #7

Hey Everyone!

Hope everyones doing fantastic! I think im starting to get used to it out here. Showering with cold water isnt too bad anymore and im used to it when theres like 15 mosquitos in the bathroom in the morning. Im still not used to all the dust though! There is so much dust and it always gets in my eyes. Other than that and getting used to the food its kind of cool out here. 

The culture is a little weird though. For the most part they have really basic houses which look really small from the outside and then you walk inside and there's a bunch of different rooms and then out of nowhere you'll see a fairly nice TV with a big sound system attached to it. Also they sometimes have some pretty nice phones. Their priorities are not focused on their houses. I don't know its just kinda weird.

The weeks are going by really fast out here. We have like three investigators that are ready to be baptized but they need to get married first. Sometimes its hard to talk during the lessons because i dont really know what theyre talking about because they talk super fast and slur their words but after a while i should be able to start to understand what they are saying. So sometimes ill only say a couple things to the investigators the entire lesson. Some of the lessons though i can understand almost everything and there will be stuff that i want to say but i dont know how to say it yet. 

Im not sure if elder bunker will be with me all the way through my training but i hope he is. Our little family branch in La Pradera just became a rama, so now were officially a ward and we have our own bishop and everything now. Only 50 more members and we become a barrio. Time to get to work.

Im not sure if the pictures wroked because the computers here are a little funky, and the keyboards stink which is why everythings all messed up, but if the pictures worked then they are of my first zone and my room and the view from my room window. 

Thats all i have for now. Hope you all have a good week!
