As most of you... well maybe some of you know this has been my first week out of the MTC(missionary training center). On Tuesday I jumped on a train to Malaga where I met my new companion Hermana Ashby, who is amazing and will be my trainer for my first 12 weeks here, and then we jumped on a train to Cádiz where I will be staying for probably the next 18 weeks! So, a little bit about Cádiz is that is beautiful, it´s a little peninsula and I can see the ocean when I look out my window! Here are some differences first off no one here has a dryer! Everyone has clothes lines outside of their window and just hang everything out to dry which I think works out except when you live on the 12th floor because here in Spain everyone builds up so the average building has at least 10 floors and then what do you do when your clothes falls? Numero dos the elevators here are all tiny and say they can hold four people but even with just me and my companion it´s pretty snug and there is almost always a really nice jolt before the door opens. Numero tres bakeries and sweet shops are on almost every street and man bread is just such a beautiful thing it´s hard to resist popping in and buying everything!
Here are some things I´ve already learned in the mission is that when you are over at someone´s house to eat and you don´t know what you are eating it´s probably best that you don´t ask what you are eating... and number two when in doubt nod your head and smile. I´m so glad that my companion knows Spanish because our investigators could be telling us they robbed a bank and I would just be smiling and nodding my head.
In conclusion I love the work I'm doing here in Spain! Even though I've only been here a week I already love the people here so much and am so excited to share the best message in the world with them. Sorry for my spelling and grammar I think that as I learn Spanish I lose my English! I hope that everyone is doing great and if any of you need anything send me an email and even though I´m in Spain I´ll see what I can do! Have a great week! I miss you all!
