What's good?! Officially done with my first week! So nuts. It's actually been pretty sick here,and it gets better everyday, especially on P-day which is today! Yeah buddy. Plus tomorrow all the new kids come in tomorrow.
It sucks not having music so I just sing myself to sleep every night.
We've been teaching a Filipino investigator lately who doesn't speak any English. Yesterday we got to our class and found out we were supposed to teach him right then, which none of us had any idea. Me and my companion went first and winged a 20 minute lesson all in Taglog for him. And it actually went pretty good. Who does that?! Well I guess it had been 6 days of learning Tagolog. Fluent! I can already carry somewhat of a basic conversation, bear my testimony, and say a prayer and all that without notes or anything. Gift of tounges is amazing.
Gym time here is so dope. We just play sand volleyball the whole time and it's so fun. My gym time is Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 1-2 and Thursday and Saturday from 8pm-9pm. There's also lots of kids here who can do flips so we all tumble together. Of course I'm the best. Duh.
The only bad part about the MTC, is when I go to gym or the temple and I realize that I'm still at home, but can't go see anyone or do what I want. Luckily Sunday we had a fireside and the speaker talked about giving up your "useless cares" and serving others for once. That for sure got to me and I've been enjoying myself a lot more again. Plus I have so many friends here, on my floor, in my building, Taylor and Lane have the same Pday as me.. It's a freakin party here.
My teacher, Brother Langer, taught us a sick lesson yesterday about teaching investigators. Luckily he finally spoke in English so we could actually understand everything. Good quote from Elder Jeffery R. Holland I'll share with everyone. "Everything in the conversion process must happen to you before it can happen to them." Dope.
I love gettting letters and packages! It really is like Christmas when you get them. If anyone would be so kind, here's some things that would change my life. A cheap fan for our room, a big bouncy ball, frisbee, some non perscription hipster glasses, treats are always nice, and just whatever!
Love you all! Mahal kita! (I love you)
Quick Tagalog for everyone. Tawagin mo ako medyo (call me maybe). and of course.. Hindi ka alam maganda ninyo (you don't know you're beautiful)
