I will probably say this every time but this week went by so fast! But everyone: Mi espanol es muy bueno!!! Ha-ha not! But it is coming... day by day. I hope by the time I talk to you on Christmas I will be able to sound at least decent HAHA. You all will be so proud- hopefully you won’t be laughing your faces off! The new Latinas that have come in this week have been so fun to talk to! I can understand most everything they say and even though it is a simple reply they understand! My life here at the CCM is so great! I have come to love every minute of it. Our district is so close and I have been so so blessed with my amazing companion. This week I will share two things-experiences.

1. If you have ever watched Freaky Friday with Lindsay Lohan in it and the part where the brother is shaking the table and yelling at his grandpa to pass the milk and the grandpa thinks it’s an earthquake and freaks out. Well this week WE ACTUALLY HAD AN EARTHQUAKE. Don’t worry guys I am alive. Ha-ha actually it wasn’t even bad. I didn’t even know until someone told me... But it was funny because my comp and I were studying and I felt the ground shaking and she was sitting on a table so she couldn’t feel it and I felt dumb saying something because it sounded crazy if I would have said EARTHQUAKE!!! Ha-ha so for 3 more hours I went about not even knowing it was an earthquake until at dinner another Hermana told me and I freaked out. Ha-ha! It was only a 2.5 or something so not a big deal but I thought it was because I have never felt one. But apparently I did and didn’t even realize. Oh Hermana Frame... Sometimes I struggle

2. This experience happened on Monday while we were in class. I was able to teach Camila- our investigators here at the CCM. It was a really good experience for me and my confidence in being able to talk with her is getting better. But before this I did an activity with the whole class and I learned so much about how important it is to teach with the spirit. Our teacher, Hermana Cepeda had us teach a lesson in 8 minutes in English and then teach 8 minutes in Spanish. During the time I taught English I was feeling like I was on cloud 9! Dude I was freaking out BECAUSE I GOT TO TEACH MY NATIVE LANGUAGE. It was actually the weirdest feeling. But wow... And then the Spanish lesson came and it felt normal but of course it was harder. But the main thing that was different was I could tell the difference from when the spirit was there and then when it wasn’t. It was a HUGE difference. The spirit converts. It is not how amazing you are at Spanish. The way the Lord works is through the promptings the missionaries have and the feelings that the investigators have while they teach. No matter if I say something completely wrong, or I can’t conjugate a verb right it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if you have the best Spanish in the whole world, or you are me here in Peru who knows so little. It is the spirit. The spirit helps us understand the love Heavenly Father has for us, and for the people I am teaching. Hence it is so important to constantly have it. It was a good realization for me.

I hope you all had a great conference weekend! How cool to hear some of the speakers teach in their native tongue! It was so exciting to hear two of them in Spanish! It brought tears to my eyes. Please please please take advantage of conference. It is such a blessing and if we make effort to listen read, and reread the talks they will bless us so much! One of my fav sayings is -A conference talk a day keeps Satan away- and it is true, I know that.

Well I am down to two weeks left! Crazy how fast time flies! I think of my brother who is now in California and I can’t believe it! We can finally apply all that we have learned.... Thank you all for all of your support and love. I feel it all the way down here in Peru. I love this gospel with all of my heart and I am thankful each day I have it. Until next week!
