Waller Week 7

Howdy Y'all!
This week has been so much fun, as always, in the beautiful state of Texas. Constantly about 70-80 here, but no worries, y'all will be laughing when it's a million degrees here, so lucky you! Some of the fun things we did this week, hmmmm. We helped finish the barbed wire fence at Bill's which was really fun to do and learn how to make. Hopefully I can use that skill in the future sometime. We also had an activity con la rama (Spanish Ward) on Saturday which was really fun. We went to Zube Park and played soccer, ate, laughed and had a great time. I have found that I really love the atmosphere of the Hispanic culture, everyone is just really friendly and nice and they really help you feel included.
Something that really touched me this week was, at the end of one of our lessons with an investigator, he told us not to give up on him. I guess just hearing that helped me realize a bit how people lean on us and how we really affect those around us.
On Saturday a member from the English ward invited us to meet one of his friends, we met at the church, gave him a little tour and then taught. He had a lot of solid questions, and at the end of the lesson we were really tired. It was really fun nevertheless.
Right now we are in the process of moving into a new apartment, don't worry same mailing address. It will be a lot of work because we are going to have to deep clean everything and move out all of the furniture, Yay?!
The list for the Spanish vocab is just a good overall list of stuff that I don't usually get to talk about, I didn't want to have you worry about compiling one for me. I am not getting transferred for a while, so you don't have to worry about that. I am gonna kill my comp though (Meaning he will be his companions last companion before he heads home in May). The music is in a book we got, like something movies, its red, and it is fine. People play all sorts of music on the piano, I've heard Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean and other stuff. I am good for hymn books, I have a regular one to play from and that has been good for me.
Besos y abrazos (jeje)

  1. "he told us not to give up on him"... I love that. Those are the moments these young missionaries realize how important they are to the people they serve. He is loving the culture and I bet they are loving him :)
