We also had our language evaluations on Wednesday morning, which was frankly a little easy in my opinion, but I also have to take into account that my companion and a few other elders don't have any language experience so esta bien. We have begun playing a game in our district we call El Nativo, which is just a contest to see who can use the most Spanish throughout the day. We then vote on who we think was the 'Nativo' and the winner with the most points by Sunday will receive a $10 card to DP Cheese-steaks, which is an awesome place that serves only one food, which I am sure cannot be guessed from its name. We otherwise spend our time preparing lessons, working on the language, or studying the scriptures/doctrine.
I am doing well here. I enjoy the peace and the simplicity here. I do miss my computer and being able to play the piano whenever, but I am not having any real withdrawals from it so I assume that it was closer to my hobby than an addiction at this point. That is my story, I am sticking to it. I am also almost over having Bronchitis I think. Idk, I was coughing a lot and it definitely wasn't any cold/flu I have had before. It also doesn't help that I need to drink A LOT of water here because of how dry it is. I drink a bottle of water before I go to bed every night so my throat can stay moist and it never seems to work that way. But I am almost over it, a few coughs every now and then.
I am starting to see now how important it is for members to be a part of the conversion process and any help we receive is appreciated. Also, take some vanilla ice-cream, mix in crushed graham crackers and chocolate chips and you have amazingness. just saying. Good luck to Bryce, I hope he does well in his competition. Also, thank you for the gifts and the letters, they mean a lot here. Though I will say that I have more food/drinks then I believe I can eat in the time I have left. Thank you to Lana and Lizzie for the Rootbeer and goodies. I was having such a craving for it. Will post again next week.
