The girl with short blonde hair is companions with the girl l'm hugging at the temple. THey are my roommates, and district hermanas Jarvis and Hunter
The picture of us with the cute little indian girl and the pretty brunnette are my new roommmates Herm. Shreeve and Gains
The two elders are SToneman (funniest kid l know) and Fotheringham (District leader and looks like Kirby Harris)
oh the elder with the glasses and the shorter one is Elder Hatfied and TAylor, also in my district
Well l have decided to add the pictures first, so l hopefully l don't send random old ones this time! Hmm well l can't believe that it's week 3 already! Time has flown by. Oh my goodness, last Tuesday, the speaker at the fireside was literally like a Brazillian version of Jim Carey. It was super funny and very good. Um...one of the Elders in my district is named Dallin Graff! Hahahaha trippy! And another looks a lot like Kirby Harris. Hmm.... my companion and l got written up last week! We totally spaced dropping off our back packs before breakfast and so we thought we'd leave them in an unused classroom under a table......... aparently that's a bad idea and fire hazard? :P
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JACOB!!!! l officially dedicate "Twenty Four" by Switchfoot to him!
OH! l had a terrifying dream. l was stuck swimming in the ocean with Dorey and Marlin from Nemo, and they were speaking Spanish to me! D: l woke up very freaked out. l HATE fish.
My maestro Sagers made a cool analogy about fans and outlets and being plugged into the power of God instead of trying to be a battery powered person...... l don't remember it very well, but it was good!
Hahahaha so.... we did our first official TRC (teach volunteer real people) and on the critique paper we got back it said "They were TRYING to bear their testimonies, and l felt the Spirit" and under the "What will you do as a result of this experience?" the lady answered, "Continue to pray for the missionaries."
...... but despite this sad review... it was a good experience!
l have decided to break the MTC record for the mile run! (It was 6:06 when l decided this) Hermana Gibson from my zone and l tried on her last day and got 6:13. But then some fast chick decided to get 5:52 :P BUT l promised Hermana Gibson and myself that l'd keep trying :) My arch is pretty much going to collapse and die from the tight almost 90 degree turns, BUT l think it just needs to get stronger.
After l finished my weekly letter to the branch president, l watched "The Coat" movie on Mormon Messages that Wes and Own loved! lt made me miss them!
Hahahaha so we do these language assessments where we record answers to questions on the computer. l however, find it awkward to pretend to "get to know someone and teach them the doctrine of faith" when no one is there and nobody answers! SO l do creepy voices like smeagul or a deeeeep creep voice, and answer myself. The rater's comments on my recordings are quite hilarious. Something about Gollum answering Gospel questions in Spanish is just catchy l suppose!
My companion pulled an "E-Harmony Cat Video" moment! Hahahaha one of our new roommates said that she likes elephants, and my roommate got VERY excited. Next thing l knew, she had dropped to her knees and was crying.......l looked at her for a second, and all she could muster was "l LOVE elephants."
Music and the Spoken word was not as bad this time cause l realized that there's an orchestra! l like to watch the violins. ANyway, it's been a good week full once again of randomness..... and l just accidentally bought a box of dryer sheets instead of detergent :P haha l lose more of my weekly allowance by pushing wrong buttons than l do actually buying things.
That's cool that Siera is going to Prom again! and l really love the tennis picture a lot! Well that's all! It's great here and l'm very sad to see Hermana Nielsen's district leave...... l'm gonna miss her! hahahaha
P.S. Deena Hudson would like me to pass along a message that she will be calling her dad somewhere tomorrow from 8 to 11 in the morning!
