Hello Again Family

hola familia, pues, no aprendí mucho esta semana. actualmente yo
aprendí mucho, pero no son cosas que verá en mi e mail. esta semana
fue fantastico. mi compañero y yo enseñamos 3 lecciónes y estoy
estudiando sobre roconocer el espiritu, preguntas de alma, y paciencia
en my estudiar personal. a noche recibiremos un nuevo grupo de
misionaros en el ccm, porque los antiguos salieron esta mañana. y
tambien yo soy el nuevo assistant to the president. haha no se porque
pero estoy animado por la opportunidad a servir y aprender más. mañana
más nuevo latino misioneros estara aqui.

well thats all the spanish i have for today, i dont know how much sense it makes. i just read my spanish part from last week and i couldn't really tell what i was trying to say.

well this week has been pretty exciting. it was sad today because a large group of the friends i made here left for the field. it was tough because i know that i will probably never see them again. especially the natives. but im excited for them and for their adventure.

so with the leaving of that group, brought the leaving of our assistants to the president. ha so my companion and i got called. i don't think its a huge calling but its pretty exciting for me. we will see how that goes.

also today we got to go to the market and purchase anything our little elder hearts desired. ha well almost anything. it was awesome. i bought a beanie with strings coming down the side and out of the top. ha i think that's number 4 for me. it was quite an adventure. we got to practice bartering for the stuff we bought. but i think i wasn't very good because i always felt bad trying to say i would only pay 6 dollars for something they wanted 8 for. especially when i was saying it to someone with so much less then myself. ha, but it was way fun, and i think after every exchange both them and i left thinking we got the better deal.

so like i said i haven't learned a whole lot that you will be able to tell, but i am learning a ton. i think soon enough i will see if i can go a whole day with no english, but it will probably be in a few weeks. well other than that there isn't much to say except that i love you all, and im absolutely loving my time here. today when i was in the market bartering for piñas in español i thought, i cant believe im here. its really incredible to me.

i hope everything at home with work and school and the miriadanal cornocopia of other nutritional things that are filling your metaphorical plate of life are well. i pray for you all every night and ask my Heavenly Father to send you my love. keep working hard and i will do the same. hasta proximo semana, adios from elder jacobson


**hello family, then, did not learn much this week. I currently
I learned a lot, but there are things you see on my e mail. this week
was fantastic. My partner and I taught 3 lessons and I'm learning about
the spirit, soul questions and patience in my personal study. tonight we receive a new group missionaries in the ccm, because the old left this morning. and also I'm the new assistant to the president. haha do not know why but I am encouraged by the Opportunity to serve and learn more. In the morning Newest Latin missionaries will be here.
