Mar 25, 2013

So today is day 3 on the mission and ITS FREAKIN SWEET!! The area I'm in is an English area with absolutely no Spanish people to teach. I'm worried that I might have a hard time retaining my Spanish. I do Language study every day to help me remember and talk to all the brown people I can. Elder Arnold is my companion and he has been out for 18 months.  We have two baptisms scheduled this Saturday and two more next Saturday. All of my invitations to be baptized have been accepted so far. Teaching in English is taking some getting used to. I can never remember the word "atonement". in Spanish it is Expiacion and I've said it before in my lessons. We have a car so I don't have to bike or walk everywhere. We went to ward council and got like 8 referrals so we have a lot to work to do. I'm pretty excited to dunk some fools!! haha Just kidding. I'm so excited to serve the people of Las Vegas and in turn, the Lord. They are saying I might only be here for a transfer but I don’t know the weather here is gorgeous I could stay here for two or three if I don’t get a visa. I'm here for a reason and I've accepted that. 
I didn't get an MSF card so I'll have to use personal funds to buy food and stuff for a couple weeks until I can get my card. :( I will survive though. P-Days are on Monday now.

The Nellis Airforce Base is in my area so we go on base a lot for dinner and some teaching appointments. Because this is a military ward the people are super transient and move around a lot. Our area book is super outdated and we were double transferred in with no knowledge of the area so it is a huge learning experience I am grateful for. There are F-22's in the sky!! Its freakin legit!! We see F-15 and Raptors on a daily basis and the raptors make this howling sound like no other. I will try to get some pictures for you this up coming week.
