Hahaha, well this week I was reminded constantly that I am in fact living in the jungle.
|Me during the giant storm. Please forgive me for looking horrible, that's kind of a |
side effect of living in the jungle.
|The power went out one night and we had to use this little candle for our light... fun!|
As for the food down here, I´m pretty lucky, my pensionista is amazing. She always asks me what I like and don´t like so she knows what to cook for the next week. So far there hasn't been anything that I absolutely hate, but there have been a few things I didn´t necessarily like. But she makes the most delicious juices, so when I don´t like something I just drink lots of juice with it, and then I don´t taste it. But yeah my meals are mostly hamburgers or fish and rice.
Oh and general conference this week! So I only got to listen to one session in English, which was kind of a bummer, because I didn´t really know what anyone was saying. But wow three new apostles! Not gonna lie, I think my favorite is Ronald Rasband just cause his name is so cool. I was hoping one of the new apostles would be from Peru, but I guess they're saving the best people for other things. ;) Anyways, even though I didn´t really understand, I still loved conference, I really needed the pick me up. I don´t know if you remember, but Hugo Montoya, of the seventy, talked about the influence of a smile, and I don´t know that really hit me, because even though I can´t influence anyone here with my words, I can still smile, and for right now that´s enough.

Anyways, so much stuff to write but so little time!
I love you all! Sorry if I don´t respond to all your emails, but just know that I read them every week and they make me super happy! I wish I could respond more!
