So much to talk about and I ONLY have 30 minutes to write. I can’t read your emails until later tonight, so I will reply to all of your emails next week. Sorry about that, I will also try to write.
They say pouch mail is the best way to get mail to the CCM because Argentina mail is just weird. The CCM is so “flippin amazing.” I’m in a threesome companionship with Elder Solmon and Elder Kohl. They’re both good. All of the teachers here are young returned missionaries. My two teachers are Hermana Aponte and Hermano Cruz. They are both 22 years old and from Argentina. They are both amazing. Hermano Cruz is hilarious and speaks really good English. Hermana Aponte is kinda shy but she knows so much. All of the missionaries in the CCM have a huge crush on her. They say the new district that I’m in is pretty lucky to have her.
There are 3 American districts. Each has about 8 members. They called me to be District President. About 25 American missionaries arrive here 3 weeks apart. There are about another 25 Latino missionaries all from Mexico or Peru. We are all going to Montevideo Uruguay.
I have learned so much while I have been out here. Learning Spanish is difficult, but I try so hard. We have a girl in our district who just understands it so much faster than the rest of us. That’s kind of discouraging…but its ok.
It has only been a week and I feel like I’ve been here for months. The days go by really fast but it just feels like an eternity none the less. The more Spanish I learn, the more English I forget. I’m having the hardest time trying to spell when I write in my journal or typing right now.
I miss you guys so much, but I know what I’m doing is right. And I know Heavenly father will bless and watch over you guys while I am gone. I pray for you guys individually each night.
They keep us really busy to try to keep us from getting home sick. We’ve already had two Latino sisters go home because of home sickness.
I love you guys. Thank you for your emails.
