It was a pretty good week this week, it goes by pretty fast! We ve been in the “city” a little more this week, its quite interesting down there. At night above some ofthe street lights they have these bright blue lights, and that means it is a bad block, and if they are flashing then that means something went down in the last week on that block…… most of them are flashing haha. P-days are quitte a bit busier then i thought they would be. i barley have time to write this e mail! oh another thing about the city…. The actually have ROUS’s down here! i ve always thought they were fake. (rodents of unusual size) They are giant, and they are everywhere, even in peoples houses! My comp is pretty cool, he is 23 years old from houston, His mom is from mexico and his dad is from honduras. so he speaks pretty good spanish, but cant really teach it. So a GPS is a necessity down here, but i might be able to get a pretty nice one for 65 bucks from one of my roomates. it is brand new. There are a couple things that i need, but i have a hard time spending money, Groceries are flippin expensive! Most of the time i have to make my own food…. Cereal and ramen noodles. Any quick, simple good recepies are appreciated. I ve gotten dinner from people 3 times, but two of those times were on the same night, so i dunno if that counts! its kinda tough bein a spanish elder here, a lot of traveling and not a whole lot of members/support from the members, a few of them are really awesome, but most dont care very much. It was my first time at church yesterday sense last week was stake conference, it was also fast sunday, so i struggled through my testimony haha. On saturday we had a service project at Havre de Grace. its like a harbor place, we painted and cleaned it up. It is actually a realy cool place with a long board walk…. but i forgot my camera:( but i can get some pics from my comp. Yesterday i was able to see the last two min of the first half of the Ravens game, during a lesson, He was a die hard fan and the most we could get him to do was turn the volume off. But from my appartment if i look across the street a squint really hard i can kind of see the tv in some guys house, so thats nice to get a little bit of time to remind me of home. Also last night we taught a lesson to a salvadorian in a towel, a bit awkward. So the 3 people we have on date are Pedro, Omar, and veronica. Pedro is awesome! he just has a little troulbe accepting Joseph smith. And omar and veronica need to get married… but they are slipping a little bit. But we found 4 new investigators this week.
