Week 3 - March 11, 2017

Hola Amigos,

This week has been super interesting. On P-day Adam (Thursday), our district learned of Vin Dap Oop and how the airline Delta is controlling everything at the MTC and there is nothing beyondthe great Provo Mountains, but the wall of the snowglobe that we apperently live in. We had been waiting two weeks to learn this zone "secret". And then on P-day Eve (Friday)(Also Wednesday is considered P-day Michael) I officially joined the crowd and participated in Consuela-ing the new district we got this week. Consuela is the mythical latina cleaning lady who leaves vacuums in your room at night if you are new to the zone and have a dirty room. Now yes I may be sleep deprived from waking up at 2 AM, but it was so very worth it.

(BTW P-day means preparation day and it's like our day off to email and such)

This morning like every P-day our zone went to the temple, which is a three minute walk away, and had a great time there as usual.

On Monday we started teaching a new investigator. Her name is Gabby and she is studying English, Portuguese, and Italian at BYU. She is from Peru. Our lessons have been going great and on Friday we were joined by a church member just to see how lessons about the church can improve with other local church members there. The guy that joined us was Aaron. He is a Chemical Engineer, so in turn he had no social skills whatsoever, but it all worked out tremendously well! 

The Spanish is slowly improving moreand more each day. It mainly dependson if I'm in the mood to intently focus and try to understand our teachers and what they say or just daydream. Teaching in Spanish is super cool though because I'm terrible, yet in the moment my Spanish skills improve tenfold from blessings from the Lord and such and it all worksout swell.

It insane how knowledgeable about church stuff I have become compared to the 3 weeks ago when I thought I knew a lot, but really didn't. My testimony of the church and gospel topics has grown a ton.

I'm super excited to see what happens this week.
