Another Week

well another week has flown by. its so weird being here. its like a dream. well its hard to even know where to start. my teachers names are hermano cuque and hermana chacon. they are incredibly awesome, they teach in basically only spanish, even though they speak english well. but they always make it so we can understand the point they are trying to get across. since last time i wrote, the latino elders have come to the ccm. they have become some of my best friends, despite the language barrier. mostly we just talk about tortuga ninjas (ninja turtles), and the whole conversation is noises and hand motions, but its great. im getting along with my companion very well, he likes to work and he took 4 years of spanish so he is helping me learn.

its hard to even put into words how much i am enjoying my time here. the hours pass like seconds, it seems like i never have enough time to study and learn. everyone here is so friendly, and to top it all off i get to play futbol every morning. the latins are ballers, one of them told me that -mi corozon es una pelota- or my heart is a soccer ball (i think) ha i don't know what else more to say! i need to start writing all the cool stuff down so i can remember them when p-day comes.

today we go to the temple, im so excited. i bought my first souvenirs, a wool bag that says guatemala on it, and some colorful scripture cases for my spanish scriptures. on friday we are going to try to teach on of our practice investigators about prophets, the apostasy, and the restoration all in spanish, so wish me luck. im trying to get good pictures, its crazy when i look out the window, there is a mountain of trees, with buildings poking out, its like something you would see on a post card. the weather has been unbelievably nice, the latins are always saying estoy frio in the mornings, but i love it. the rain clouds cover the sun most of the day, so its only gotten hot once or twice. there is 8 people in my district and they are all great. but i don't really have time to write all there names, but there is a trio of hermanas which makes the class way different from when it was only elders, its fun.

well thats about all the time i have for today ill write some letters. right now im going to email lester the man i met on the plane on the way here, and ask if he has found a book of mormon, im going to try to figure out a way to send one to him. well as always i love you all thanks to everyone for the prayers and support, and sorry to any one who has sent me a letter or package and i havent responded, its just hard to find a whole lot of time, they keep us busy. me ama ustedes mucho y estoy animado escuchar para/por ustedes. ha i don't know if that made any sense. but i love you all hasta luego. Elder Jacobson
