Teaching Here is not Easy, but I'll keep trying.

In like 3 weeks, I'll have 6 months on my mission.  Demasiado mucho ya.

No sé porque, pero quiero escribir un poco en español esta semana.  Ya puedo hablar muy bien, y entiendo casi todo.  Voy a volver a casa y solo hablar en español y guaraní para molestarles a ustedes.  Jiji.  Soy maldito.  Pero mañana, vamos al templo.  Estoy muy animado por esta actividad.  Hace mucho que yo pude asistir al templo.  Nos vamos a reunir en el terminal a las 12 en la mañana para tomar colectivo al Asunción.  Oy, cosa increíble - garments acá solo cuestan 1.000 (20 cents) por la parte abajo y 2.000 (40 cents) por la parte arriba.  ¡E´a!  Oh, cómo está en Guaraní se dice mba´eichapa jaja.  Muy dificil, pero empezé estudiar con Elder Ganga esta semana.  Estoy aprendiendo.  Cuando entienda los principios basicos, es muy facil y tiene mucho sentido en las reglas gramaticas.

Ok, enough spanish for one email lol.  Have fun translating!  I got the package from bryan with all the food in it - thanks man!  I also got the package for my birthday with all the presents with the little sayings on them - thanks you guys!  (What, did you really think I was going to wait until my birthday?  Haha).  It was pretty clever, even if I have absolutely no use for a piece of felt =P hahah I loved it.  We opened all of them in the district meeting, they were laughing and jealous because their parents never did anything like that for them :]

The Lord blesses you in His Work

Sheesh, in 27 days is my birthday!  I'll be 20, geez I'm old.  I still feel like 16 haha.  But in some ways, I feel like 40 too =P.  It's a funky time-warp thing.  I don't understand, but I don't ask questions.

So next week, we go to the temple on Tuesday!  Should be excellent.  If I'm not mistaken, we get to do a session and baptisms as well, so that will be awesome.  But the bad part is that it changes my P-day to Tuesday as well (we always go on P-days and the temple is closed on Mondays), so I'm not sure if I'll have the opportunity to use the computer or not.  So if you don't get an email from me next Tuesday, that's why and I'll write one the following Monday as usual.  But I'm way stoked for the temple, you can't imagine lol.

This change will go by so fast.  Every Wednesday we teach English classes in the church.  Then this Friday, we have a missionary activity in the ward - Elder Ganga and I along with the other 2 missionaries who work in our ward are doing an activity with the Book of Mormon.  We're going to first give a lesson on the Book of Mormon.  Then we'll give everybody a copy to write their testimonies in.  The ideal situation is everybody can bring a friend to whom they can give that Book of Mormon, but if they can't, they'll go out with us one day and help give it away to an investigator.  Should be pretty sweet.  Anyway, and then we have the temple the next week,  2 weeks with nothing special, the week after is my birthday, and then the week after that is changes.  It's going to fly by way fast.  I'm excited for this month haha.
