Hey family. I wrote Rosa last week, I hope she got it. I´ve been praying lots for her and I hope she gets better quick. I miss our ward, latins are just so much nicer than the Spainards. But its ok, I´m charming my way into their hearts, slowly but surely.
Dear mother, let me answer your questions because I know you worry a lot about these little things. I DO MY OWN LAUNDRY. Shocker, right? And I haven´t ruined anything. My whites are as white as snow. I promise. We don´t have a dryer though so I have to hang everything to dry which is super annoying but hey, we deal with it. Also, it might interest you to know that I wash the dishes ALL THE TIME. Very unlike I was at home with the dishes... I love doing it now, it relaxes me. Haha the other hermanas struggle with keeping the kitchen clean so I just do the dishes all the time because I´m an angel obviously. Also my companion is teaching me how to cook. Hahaha yes finally. Nothing fancy but we´re not starving either. Just basics like pasta and rice. On Sunday, I cooked after church to end our fast I made rice with un huevo frito y salchichas. Nothing fancy but I´m trying. Also, I learned how to make la tortilla de patatas, its my favorite thing out here.
Shoot I feel like I had a lot of awesome things to tell you about this week but I forgot. I usually write them down. Today I´m going to Madrid to go site seeing and shopping and stuff. It should be fun. Oh, remember Mike the investigator from Nigeria? He´s getting baptized on May 11. He´s super awesome and goes out of his way to meet with us whenever, I´m so excited for him. He came to a baptism that the Elders had on Saturday and he really liked it. There´s this Mexican family that we´ve been teaching, Rutillo y Lorena. They were my first lesson here in Alcala. When I got here at 7 and I had to run to their house at 7:30. Rutillo was baptized when he was 14 and was active for a couple of years and then stopped. Lorena isn´t a member and they have a 5 year old daughter named Jimena who reminds me so much of Jalyssa. Anyway, we had a super cool lesson with them this week. We watched the Resturation movie and had a mini testimony meeting. I shared how reading the Book of Mormon together with my family really brought us together and how the gospel just blesses families and then I gushed about how much I loved you guys. It was adorable. Hna Wright and I were vibing with the Spirit and then we asked Rutillo, why he got baptized in the first place and started crying and told us his story and the Spirit was awesome. We invited them to pray as a family about the Book of Mormon and then... They totally came to Church yesterday! We´ve been trying for weeks to get them to come and they finally did and they loved it. I´m super excited to see them this week. I have a good feeling about them.
Also I finally found a Colombian family that loves me and will make me Colombian food. I almost cried I was so happy. We visited them yesterday and we´re totally best friends now. Its fine.
well I love you guys a whole lot and I love hearing from you every week. It always gets me motivated for the next week. This week we´ll get to go to the temple and I´m super excited, its been like a month and I miss going every week. Because temple oridances is what its all about. I love this gospel and I love being a missionary. I say that a lot but I really do. I MISS YOU GUYS A LOT BE GOOD AND STUFF AND THE CHURCH IS TRUE.... OBVIOUSLY. :)
