¡Hola Familia y Amigos! Semana 5

Another week has come and gone in the CCM. This is my LAST week at the CCM!! Next week I will be in Ecuador! We got our flight plans today, and we leave late monday night for the airport and fly to Colombia at 2:15am, and then fly to Ecuador! its crazy that the time has already come for that! im excited to get to ecuador and preach the Gospel! i just hope they can understand me... haha

This past week was basically the same as usual. Really each day is almost exactly the same schedule. But i learn new things each day, so really i guess each day is different... it just feels the same! :) 

On Thursday I got to attend the zone teacher meeting with all the teachers in my zone. they talked almost all in spanish, and in full speed spanish... so there were some parts that i was a little confused. but for the most part i could get the main idea of what was going on! Also my teachers said that i was doing really well at the language and my lesson plans! Wow! maybe im not as bad at spanish as i think! But it is not by me alone that i have gotten better. i have been so blessed with help from nuestro Padre Celestial.

This week for TRC we taught this cute mom and her cute 1 year old son named Mateo. it was so fun! All 4 hermanas in our district taught her together, so it was a little different in our teaching style, but it was still a good lesson. She was very kind to us and talked slow! (phew!) 

On Friday it was the 25 of september, so it was our Christmas in the CCM! haha.. we sang Christmas songs for our devotional, and it was fun to have a little bit of Christma spirit here in Mexico, 3 months before Christmas. 

But it has felt like Christmas here, because it is SO COLD!!! im freezing here. i brought clothes for ecuador, not for utah cold weather. it has been a little rainy and chilly these past few days. i never would have guessed that mexico would be cold! all the teachers are wearing coats, and i keep thinking to myself, "if only they could experience a real utah winter... " haha

This past week my teacher Hna Arnaud has come up with this "fun" game for our district. We have to speak ONLY Español all day. and if we speak english, we get a tally mark on the board. whoever gets the most tally marks (because they speak the most english) loses!! And has a punishment. Well Hna Arnaud sure thinks its fun, but she is Latino! It is a hard game! It reminds me of elementary school. When the teacher would write your name on the board, and give you points if you misbehaved. Well i never got points in elementary school... But i lose almost every time here!! Ive lost 2 days in a row! And my punishment was to bring choki cookies to the class the next day! I dont know what it is! i just slip up, and if you get caught, another "punto" (point) on the board. BUT i think the game is rigged. cause everyone else speaks english, and they just dont get caught. so the REAL game is seeing who can speak the most english without getting caught! (obvioulsy that is not me...)

Yesterday i was able to watch the funeral service for Richard G Scott. it was such a nice service, held in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. Seeing the tabernacel made me feel that i wasnt that far away from home anymore! it was good to see a litte bit of home again, right in front of me! The music was also amazing during the service! Wow. it was so good to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir again!! music truly is a blessing, and i am grateful for beautiful hymns and choirs that can uplift and inspire others.

One of my favorite quotes this week, i got from a great Relief Society lesson. It says: "Do not judge by appearances. A rich heart may be hiding under a poor coat." Our lesson was all about forgiveness and love. it was a great lesson! the woman who gave it reminds me a lot of Grandma Warburton! But it was great to be reminded that we are all hijos de Dios. We all have strenghts and weaknesses. No one is perfect. But when we remember that we are all hermanos y hermanas, and rememer our divine worth, we notice that no matter who we are, we are all loved by Padre Celestial y Jesucristo.

Gracias for all your love and support! Im grateful to be here, and for the things I am learning each week. Nuestro Padre Celestial truly is mindful of us all!!

Les amo,
Hermana Warburton
