Another crazy change in my life. I am now serving in the great area of Las Colinas. This is my first time outside the zone of Managua and into Universitaria. It’s so crazy how things can change in my life so fast.

My new comp is awesome. His name is Elder P and he is from Colorado. He and I get along great and he is super smart. He has a change more than me and his Spanish is really good. It’s great having a lot of North American comps because they are easy to communicate with and usually like to work hard, but at the same time it’s hard to improve my Spanish. But, I’ll just have to work that much harder.

I feel like I have a lot of things I need to improve. This is one of the reasons why I like changes so much because you can take what you didn’t like about your teaching or bad habits or whatever and improve. Get Better.

I’m pumped to learn so much from this new responsibility.

Love you all and have a great week.

  • What do you mean by ‘new responsibility’? Well I was made DL, but it’s just a title. It’s the shoes I need to fill.
  • How is the leadership in the wards in which you’ve been serving? The last area I had was awesome because there was a ton of missionary support. People always wanted to know how they could help. It just really depends on the area.
  • What vicinity is Las Colinas in? How far away from Managua are you? It’s basically in Managua. Just a little bit outside, between Managua and Granada.
  • What are the people like? How are they similar or different from Sandino? I will have to let you know next week, but I think I’m going to love this area.
  • Can you roll your R’s in Spanish yet? Not even close. It’s hard having North American comps, but Elder P has been helping me a ton with my pronunciation.
  • What additional responsibilities do you have? Report numbers, divisions, interview for baptism, district meeting weekly, other stuff, I’m excited to learn.
  • How are your living conditions? I think this is my favorite house so far. I feel like there is a lot more room.
  • What is the environment like? What about roads…are they paved? dirt? cobblestone? A lot of mixed roads, I mean a ton of diversity. It’s kind of tropical.
