Alright so what´s your record of people that you´ve seen on one motorcycle? 2? Because mine is 5. Guatemalans are crazy. So something really cool about this place is that a bottle of soda costs roughly $.30. If we were allowed to drink Coke (we can´t), I´d be dropping Quetzales like it was nobody´s business.
P.S. You can take Fin out of America, but you can't take the America out of Fin
P.P.S. There are cats EVERYWHERE!
To answer some questions:
What’s your ward like? How do your lessons go? Do you have to teach any classes in church?
Do you get to meet with other elders during the week? Anyone from your MTC group in your district or zone?
How do you do contacts? On the street or do you go door-to-door? Do the members help much with referrals?
How are the kids there? Do you get to speak with them much? They tend to have an easier time understanding you.
You learning more words every day? What books are you reading other than the BofM?
Sheesh, lots of questions.
We aren´t allowed to drink any dark sodas. So it´s pretty much just sprite, 7up, and any orange soda. Our ward is good. I haven´t had to teach any lessons yet, or talk in sacrament meeting. We have district meetings every wednesday. We have 2 companionships in our ward, so I see those elders 3 times a week. Everybody is together for weekly planning, p day, and district meetings (our whole zone goes to a stake center). Most of our contacts are on the street. We rarely just knock doors. The kids here are nice, and a lot easier to speak with. Right now, I´m just focusing on the book of mormon and preach my gospel. I´m going to start listening to the Joseph Smith tapes at lunch (we get an hour every day).
