We have new roommates, they are fantastic guys. They are from Honduras, Chile, and Peru. I gave them all some of my peanut butter (which they loved) and then I traded the rest for some stamps. So please send me more stamps, and Peanut butter, once I am out in the field. The Spanish language is great. I love speaking with Latinos in Spanish and they attempt to respond in English. Learning from and teaching one another is the best way to acquire a skill. We have three language books here and the missionaries call them Nacho, chancho, y Eskeleto. We have two great teachers, and one of them knows no English, the other day he tried to spell Utah on the board and spelled it "Yuta". Also this language has a couple of interesting slang terms. If you want to say someone is really guapo or lindo (handsome or pretty) you call them a churro. It funny things like that make me love Spanish.
As we reach our halfway point we are starting to get into a comfort zone. I am trying to remind myself of Sam´s email constantly that there is no growth in the comfort zone. That I need to stretch myself if I am to grow and learn. Everyday I try my hardest to learn the language, memorize scripture, and pray earnestly. Some days are super rewarding and some days are frustrating. The thing that matters though is the change I can see through the power of Christ. I know that it is through him that we can make the most impactful change in our life's and the life's of others. I see miracles occur everyday hear and I can see Gods hand ion our work.
I love all of you and I promise I read every email, even if I don't respond. Thank you for all the love and support.
Nos Vemos,Elder Perryman
