First of all I need to wish Josh Keller happy birthday!!!!! I hope it is wonderful and someone please send him a text or an email or facebook him or something for me!
Another good part of this week was on Saturday our morning teacher, out of the blue, made us promise to only speak spanish the WHOLE day until 9:30 at night, it was hard! But fun and helped a ton! So now it is a district goal for us to start today and speak spanish all day except at one meal a day and if we have to we can plan our lessons in english but next week we are going to go only spanish! Solamente espanol!A bad part about this week is that the group that has been here two weeks more than us left this morning, I am kinda sad about it... There were some amazing kids in that group and I know they will do some incredible things but I will definitely miss them! I had become very good friends with some of them.
Another good thing is that on a spanish grammar test we took the other day to just see how we were doing I scored a 59% which doesn't sound good, but it shocked me!! I actually didn't do too bad in comparison with the other kids in my district even though my spanish was one of the very worst coming into the MTC. My companion scored 86%( like i said he is a genius!) then two kids scored 61 then 49, 44, 37 or something like that. So it goes to show that hard work does pay off and it is not always fun but when you do your part then God will help with the rest!
The most exciting thing though is that we get to go procelyting this friday!!!!!! We are going on splits with real missionaries out in the field from lunch until 7!!!!! We are going to the West mission and I can not wait!!!!!!!! We don't know much else besides we get to jump on the metro with our district and some teachers and then as companionships we will get off at different stops and the missionaries will be waiting and we will go do normal missionary stuff for the day! As much as I love it in the MTC I am ready to get out in the field and start! Even though I can't speak spanish very well, it will come and I want to teach real people! haha
I think that is it for today! I love you all and I appreciate all your support!
