Hello all! I hope youre all doing fine without me! This week has been pretty good.
Alright so first of all, Tuesday morning I pack up my things and drive to Viña! Im so excited to get into the field. Not to mention the classes here are a little boring. Dont get me wrong, theyve taught a lot of good stuff here, stuff that Im very grateful for, but I feel like now I just need to get out there and teach.
Ive learned a lot about the power of obedience this week. We listened to a devotional by Elder Ballard and he said that missionaries should be obedient, starting with getting up on time. Before then I was kind of sleeping in, not really, till like 6:45, but when I heard that I decided that I was going to get up on time. The first couple times I did it, it was really hard, but then it got easier! I started to notice that I was less tired during class, and so far it has helped a lot. So this week I learned to always be obedient, even thought sometimes it may be hard. Especially when everybody in your room like to talk till 11:30 at night and wake up at 6:50. I still love them though, they are literally the best roomates I could have ever asked for.
One thing Ive noticed about the Chilean culture, and this may just be South America in general, but they dont really care if they are late. They also take soooooooooooooo long to get ready. I am literally ready for class at 9:30, when it starts at 10:00, and we get there at 10:05 because my compañero takes so long. Thats my only complaint, other than that hes amazing!
Also the food has not changed one bit. One time for lunch they tried to make lasagna, and emphasis on the word try. It was not very good, nothing like my dads. Still Im grateful that we have people willing to make us food everyday, but lets just say that Im also grateful that Im leaving in a few days.
These two weeks have really flown by. It seems like just yesterday I was writing my first email. Really I love Sunday and P-Day the most, because its a break from all the classes. Im so excited to get out in the field. Elder Smith from my district is also going there too, so were best friends now. Sometime I like to wonder what all you guys are doing without me. I miss you all.
