another week

August 15, 2014

I have absolutely no complaints for this week.

This week started off so crazy!! Everyone was getting sick. The CCM was basically a hospital. It was nuts. Sunday started off normal everyone getting up, going to breakfast, just an average day. Then, by the time lunch came around, everyone was dropping like flies. One of our roommates had a fever of 102. It was insane. Luckily, I just got away with a cold, but everything is fine now.

This week Elder S and I did a half day of ´solo espanol.´ It was way hard, but I learn so much when I am forced to speak the language. Also this week, two teachers did a mock lesson and I could understand about 90% of what they were saying. It was so amazingly awesome. I still can´t speak very well, but this was for sure a ground breaking moment.

I think me and Elder S are finally getting (more or less) the hang of teaching a lesson in Spanish. The overall flow of the lesson is getting so much better. We are learning to actually teach part of the lesson without using 100% of the script. We have a lot of work, but it will come.

Thanks again so much for the doughnuts you sent to me again. It means so much. I shared them with my district and they were super grateful.

Me and Elder S had a really funny experience yesterday. When we went to gym, we noticed that our roommates left their door wide open with their keys sitting on their beds. So we thought we could either do 1 of 2 things. We could either get their keys and take it to them or we could take their keys, lock their doors and not tell them. We obviously chose option number 2. When they got back, they were freaking out because they realized that their keys were in their room and the door was locked. So they had to go all the way to the reception desk to get the master key. They then unlocked their door and grabbed their wallets which they thought their keys we in. They didn´t realized till later that night that we had taken their keys. They were freaking out. It was hilarious.

Today I got a hair cut. I didn’t think I had that much hair on my head, but I guess she thought I did. I think this is the shortest I have ever had my hair in my whole life. I guess that´s what happens when you have one person that speaks spanish and one person who speaks english.
I love missions so much!!!

Mom,
I still don´t know a lot about my departure to Nica, but I will let you know when I find out. Elder S is also going to Nicaragua. I think my favorite thing about the MTC is how much I am learning. I love it. I don´t think I will get to go to the temple for 2 years :(. The food is good. There are certainly some things that you need to stay away from, but for the most part it is really good. My stomach is doing good too. I am eating a lot, but I still haven´t put on any weight yet. The laundry is good, thanks for teaching me or it might be a struggle. A typical day is from 7:15 to 9:30…we are studying with some breaking in between like meals and gym, but for the most part it is studying all day. I love you and miss you so much.
Love,
Elder Wagstaff
