In some ways it is becoming difficult to distinguish one day from another because in some ways they are very similar. It can be difficult to remember that this is just a small step to something much greater. If you do not take it seriously, you leave and are not prepared for the world that you are about to go into.
This past week, my companion and I had our first no call no show with one of our investigators. Unfortunately, it will likely be the first of many once I leave here and go to México.
Speaking of which, this is coming to you a day early because I am going to Las Vegas tomorrow. I felt like I needed a break from the stress of missionary life, so I decided to relieve it with a visit to the casinos. The best way to relieve stress is by gambling, of course.
That was a joke.
I am actually going there to get my visa so I will not have to be an illegal immigrant. I imagine that is somewhat frowned upon nowadays. Unfortunately, that means that I do not get a preparation day or jamba juice.
It will be worth it though because I will no longer have to wonder if I can fit into a shipping box en route to México.
Recently, the other missionaries in my district started a thing where they would put salt on cake when you weren’t there and see if you actually ate it. It actually worked once. I promise, we actually do like each other.
Spanish is coming easier in lessons, but I need to use it all day everyday to progress well. The key is total diligence despite the changing circumstances all around you. Sometimes I feel as if I am held back by the language and if I could only speak in english, I would be an amazing teacher, but I was called by a prophet to speak in Spanish, so I must.
Feel free to send me emails with questions or updates. I enjoy both.
