Our Schedule goes a bit like this...
We rise from bed at 6:20 to prepare for morning excersise which we do until 7 usually in the casa because the funny part is that everyone here including my companion thinks its cold here and is wearing coats, hats scarfs the whole shabang we would wear back home and im here in a t shirt sweating in the 75 degree weather.
7-8 we get ready and eat breakfast
8-11 is studying we have an hour of personal which is required to be time Reading the Book of Mormon, and hour of companionship study to practice the lessons we will teach that day and i have started teaching parts of the lesson so now my companion teaches half and i do half. And the last hour is language study she studies english and i study chinese..... hehehe just kidding its spanish in case if i confused anyone. hmmmmm Why would Kayla be studying chinese that doesn´t make sense.. shes in mexico right? Hehe funny thought.
11-12 is training for me where i learn alot of how to be a better missionary.
12-9pm is proselyting time and we arent alowed to knock doors thankfully so alot of the people we teach are referrals from members or people who dont like mormons and want to wish us upon their enemies or people we contact on the streets. we have these pass along cards that have a website wih a video about jesus and christmas its super good its navidad.mormon.org at least in spanish it is. And when we dont have people to meet with we stop families and women and ask them if we can come share a christmas message about jesus and if they say yes and want to learn more after sharing the video we get a new investigator its been really effective and the other day i contacted a random lady on the Street and she agreed to let strangers in her home to share a message with her family and as we set up an appointment and walked off she ran after us to change the date for another day which never happens. Usually people will be like ya whatever here is info as to where we live or no your crazy for even asking that and they just walk off but this lady chased us down! it felt kinda good to have someone that interested.
9-10:30 is in the casa and we take the time to plan for the next day write in journals and get ready for bed.
Meals are really different here you have an on the go breakfast and then around 3 a big lunch with the whole family thats like an hour long and then thats it. And that sounds crazy right that its like 1 actual meal but its all you need trust me. I usually love the food i did have something that i pray never makes back onto my plate its called Chicharone con salsa verde. Its pretty much pig skin fried in soggy bread and doused in really spicy Green sauce and it is the greasyest slithery fatning food i have ever had and im pretty sure that i prayed afterwards to allow myself to throw up of course i wasn´t able to...darn strong stomache Anyways it was worst than muscles mom like that bad and left me with heart burn and luckily i had tums to save the day. I also learned how to make a super tasty and easy dish with pretty much meatballs and rice but its way good.
We also have a new address for letters and packages so make sure you update it.
Love, Hermana Jammet
