July 15, 2013... 1st letters
Hey family i miss you guys so bad that story with the lizard is hilarious sorry jordan. also i loved the snacks and am still lovin em cause i havent eaten very much. I dont have a card reader so i cant send pics right now. and I tried to send you a letter but forgot to put a stamp on it. it was an epic fail. but its really busy here and i have learned a lot most of all that like the city of Rome my spanish vocabulary will not be built in a day. my day consists of a ton of studying and a lot of prayers that i will somehow learn spanish. the first three days were really hard for me the teacher talked in spanish the whole time and i didnt understand a word he said so i was really discouraged i have like 8 hours of class a day! but was amazing and today is just a good break from spanish except i have to have a disscusion tonight in spanish! its my third one and i feel like i understand the spanish really well but i dont Know how to respond. but seriously the third day i was here i had to teach a lesson in spanish it was no bueno the one we taught was ok but we still have a lot i want to say but cant. mi companero elder rojo grande aka elder welch es muy bien! el jugar futbol americano por Bountiful. he is a really cool kid i have learned how to say a prayer in spanish already and i know how to say my testimony en spanish my district is all from utah except the one that is from idaho but thats pretty much north utah he is our district leader and he reminds me a lot of dad. the spanglish in our zone is ridiculous and like three kids are from cali so they talk like gangsters its so funny the spirit is so strong here and I cant wait for more experiences. also dad if you have any tips on what helped you to learn spanish they would be greatly appreciated. If you want to know anything else be kinda specific and i will tell you about it.
amo mi familia
