#25 Mitad Del Mundo y Ingles

So lots of super cool stuff to share. But first Luke 22.3232 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and whenthou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with theeI really like this scripture that Christ says to Peter. I used it the other day in a Church meeting to kinda inspire the members to come out with us on visits. The members here are super cool and My companion has been working with them a lot. The other day a member left work, picked up his wife, and then they came to an appointment with us 3pm on a weekday. Not many people are willing to do that, but they did and they were what Monica needed. She needed to hear from a married couple about blessings and experiences. Something I can't give much input on. ASK THE MISSIONARIES IF THEY HAVE ANY APPOINTMENTS YOU CAN HELP WITH. It is a super cool experience.So it is all hills here. Like we are always on the side of a mountain. Buses here are crazy. They have 30 seats, and recommend 30 other people....But fit like 100 more. The other day I got one foot in and was kinda hoping on the other leg while the bus was moving. That was different, let me tell ya. Then I kinda just shoved on in. Its insane.So I teach Clases de Ingles once a week. It was a little rough but now I know their understanding and can prepare for next week. Everyone here speaks a little English. Its a school requirement, and many people just want to learn it to improve their life. In church, everyone tries to speak to me in English haha. The other day we were teaching a family for the first time and we told them we wanted them to present themselves in English. They did pretty good. Then it was my turn and they all started yelling at the little kids to be quiet for me to speak "real English" THEY LOVED IT. hahahaAlso today we went to the Middle of the World Monumental park. It was super cool. it was more than just a yellow line, they had cultural stuff like houses, and lots of sciency stuff about the middle of the world and Experiments.Love you all!-Elder HallstedP-day at Middle of the world Monumental Park
