Hola family and friends!!!! I can't even believe another week has come and gone! It’s so weird how fast the weeks go for me down here. I now have 2 months in the mission, and I have already learned so much. I can feel how much I've changed, and it’s only been 2 months!!!
Honestly I can´t remember much from this past week, but I do know it has been awesome! Every week is awesome. Although it is very different, it is super cool to experience a different culture. We have had a lot of appointments with people, and we have kept very busy teaching. Our area has so much potential, and I hope I get to stay here for another transfer. It has been crazy cold this past week, and it actually rained for like 2 days straight! Who would have guessed that I would need to use my jacket here in Mexico?
So yesterday I tried my first tacos here in Mexico, and I was sooooo excited! But...I was feeling super sick since the night before. I didn´t eat anything for dinner Saturday night and then no breakfast on Sunday. Then we went to a member’s house for lunch and she made us tacos! I was so excited, but also super disappointed because I knew if I ate it I would throw up... But the rules are you have to eat what members give you, and you can´t tell them you are sick because they will try and give you meds. So I struggled to eat two tacos and then dessert. That whole rest of the day I just felt like trash. We had been walking around for like two hours, and I asked my companion if we could sit for 5 mins. We got up and started walking and maybe 30 seconds later I am throwing up on the sidewalk!!! But good news is that I am felling much better! And I really hope my next experience with tacos is better haha.
My Spanish is coming along pretty fast! People are always impressed that I have only been here 3 weeks, so that helps me feel more confident.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. What a wonderful time of the year. It’s not important where we are because the reason is still the same. Jesus Christ was born and because of Him all mankind is saved. I am so grateful to spend my first Christmas here in Mexico.
Love you all!
(I´m sorry I still havent't sent pictures but probably next week!!)
