Thank you for the package!!! The veggie straws are a hit in my room, because they don´t believe in salt or pure chocolate here, so we have been really enjoying having some salty food. Thank you very much!!!
First of all, to explain how the food is: of the ten of us in the district, I am one of two who is yet to go to the doctor. And honestly, I could probably go to the doctor, too, if it weren´t for my Owens pride of not needing a doctor. I get beans, rice, and chips at every meal, and will continue to do so at every meal until it kills me. Which it potentially could :) But seriously, it´s great. They have pizza every Friday night to welcome the newbies, and hamburguesas every week, so I´m getting some American food, too :)
My triumph of the week was that we were at home, and somebody rang on the doorbell. I opened it, and it was two Latina sisters, and they asked where casa 21 was, and I told them! I was proud of myself: I 1) understood them and 2) could converse with them!! I was very happy about that.
We found out that the CCM President was the mission president of Tuxtla Gutiérrez!! Also, he spoke in General Conference [our twice yearly Conference from Salt Lake City] a couple of years ago: Octaviano Tenorio, 2007. It was a really good talk.
Something kind of funny was we taught one of our investigators about keeping the law of the land, or "la ley de la país." It was a good lesson, it went well, and then at the end Hna Morrison prayed. But then she said in the prayer, "gracias por la ley de la pies." I thought maybe I´d just heard wrong, but then later that day she wrote that down on a paper, and I realized I was right! We got a good laugh, because instead of the law of the land, she said she was grateful for the "law of feet." It was pretty funny.
Sorry this is kind of short, but the mission is going well!
This is me, Hna Morrison, and the other companionship living with us,
Hermana De haan and Hna Olsen.
