Well we hit a month this week!
We also moved rooms, AGAIN. I think this time because people are leaving and capacity is low they wanted to condense all the missionaries into as few buildings as possible (for maintenance and electricity costs I assume). Right now we have just over 170 missionaries here, but a capacity of 1200. I guess its expected to go up in the summer/after school. This time we just moved our stuff because our new classroom already had the good desks lol. If your keeping score at home, thats 4 Classrooms, 3 Buildings and 2 Districts lol.
Theyre doing construction on the "comedor" (mess hall/where we eat) to expand it because ive heard it was overflowing (they set up tents outside because there wasn't enough room inside) when they had this place filled. The one we eat in now is a temporary one. Its a gym with a stage and everything lol. You cant really tell though with all the tables and everything set up in it. Well, while walking back to the dorms last night the other elders thought it would be cool to look around inside the comedor that theyre remolding. Its was kind of cool and I got some cool pictures. Then they decided to clime on the roof because there was like this ladder step thing. I stayed down. And good thing because some security guys came and told them they couldnt do that and wrote down our names and took pictures of them climbing down. We dont think were in that big a trouble but well see.
By the way I just got Scotts letter and your card you guys sent. The one was post marked like March 20 something, so about a month to get here. I wont send anything physical till I get to Dallas, because I have not heard the best things about the Mexican Postal Service, especially between here and the U.S.
We got a new afternoon teacher, Hermano Medina. Hes super cool.
|Heres a picture Hermana M drew of our teachers.|
Ill get pictures with them this week.
Shes drawn all of us already haha. Ill take a pic
[I wrote to him and told him that we finally got rid of our green van... like a member of the family that's been with us forever! It was scrapped this last week.] Im super sad about the Green Machine. That was my favorite car to drive. Really liked the handling and the short dash. And we drove out west once in that bad boy!
Oh yea, Elder M was so giddy when he found out he got packages (you and Aunt Carrie both). He was really surprised to learn they where from MY family lol but he loved them, and you guys. He decided you guys love him more than his family haha. Elder E-B and Hermana M keep telling me to bring them up to you guys lol.
You probably also got this picture from a teacher:
Well Elder E-B and I in the back are imitating our favorite painting:
Im our favorite guy covered in soot in the corner saying "You hearing this guy??"
Well thats about it for now. I think we get to email again on Saturday. Dont know how much time well have, so you might not get a good email again till im in the field!
|Here is were we have sacrament meeting. The Thomas S. Monson Building has a couple rooms like this and then a bunch of rooms with couches (like a living room) to practice teaching investigators.|
|Wow - they have their own Taxi?! Brett didn't say anything|
