25 November 2014

Ive finally made it here. <now rocking life in <hermosillo mexico. and i get to learn spanish all over again because whatever theyre speaking here isnt spanish. its someting else. the flight went smoothly and everything and lifes good. Im chlling in an internet cafe writing this cause thats pretty much the best way to internet here. My companion is great, Elder González. he speaks very little english so that will be really good or me im sure. I have no quotes this week because i left my journal and honestly not much to say beyond the fact that mexico is super cool so far altough it hasnt even been 24 hours.
fin fat, if you want to say cool in spanish theres several different ways. you can say chevre, padre, or suave. i have no clue waçhat chevre means beyond the contextual use but padre means dad and suave soft so if someting is cool you basically say que padre or how/such dad. or que suave how soft. i find it humorous at least. also everything is short here so i have ben and will be hitting my head a. lot. so if i ome back as a tonto you will know why.
theres so much cool stuff to learn here its awesome. i can officialy say that i can read and almost completely understand all spanish which is a huge blessing. and i probably get to teach my ompanion what it means to be a grateful american and eat as much as humanly possible. but we will see what happens. as far as cooking options go we have a broken stove with a qustionably functionable burner and a microwave but i will whip something up that is well worth being grateful for regardless.
so if you ever need some motivation in life, personally i would hit up helaman 5:12 "and now my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our redeemer who is Christ, the son of God, that ye must build you fondation. that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds yea his shafts in the whirlwinds yea when all his hail and mighty storm shall beat upon you it shall have no power over you to drag you don to the gulf of misery and endless wo because of the rock upon which ye are built. which is a sure foundation. a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." 
so just remember that tough times come and life may beat at you but theres nothing it can do to stop you from having a good time and loving life because you believe in something beter. you have hope for a beautiful future no matter how dark the present.
have a wonderful week all, im sure next week ill have a decent story or two.
