My companion's name is Elder Galan. He is from Guatemala or as he says Gutabuena. dumb joke I correct him every time. He's pretty nice but hes the first Latino I've meet with an ego. He thinks he's pretty know it all and speaks super fast Spanish to me even tho I tell him every time you talk to me slow. He says something slow then 5 minutes later its fast again. so i usually just speak English to him and then he stops talking. Hes our district leader which is cool, but he calls on me every single time in class to say the prayer or spiritual thought. It's like homie my vocab in Spanish is like 10 words i don't know what to say. We started teaching too this week and he would speak the whole time and i said we need more unity. so the next lesson he had me speak the whole time. i was like thanks for letting me talk but that's not unity. he is teaching me Disney songs in Spanish tho which is cool cuz you all know I love Disney!
Anyways I'm running out of time so I'l give you the highlight of this week. This week with my new companion and my new district and Spanish EVERYTHING I got super depressed! The only thing keeping me from begging to go home was Ivy to be honest and what she told me on our last date. I prayed so hard I said "Heavenly Father if I am supposed to be here please let me know and when I receive an answer please help me to know that that is my answer." The next day someone gave a spiritual thought and shared Matthew 21 [correction: John 21] about feeding his sheep. I felt the spirit so strong and a feeling come over me saying I need to be here and feed the Lords sheep. As hard as it is here and as much as I'd rather be home with every single person I love like I was just 6 weeks ago, I know I need to be here now!
