So for the fun fact this week, here is a list of some of the most important Spanish words that they never taught me in high school Spanish class:
pues - um, or well, or just a word to say when you don´t know what to say.
órale - an exclamation that means something along that lines of wow, fantastic, way to go, how awesome.
íjole - an exclamation that means just the opposite of órale, something like how awful.
andale - another exclamation, basically means keep going, that´s right
entonces - basically one of the most important words in all of Spanish. It means so, but can also be used like pues, you just say it when you don´t know what else to say.
To be continued....
This was a week of lots of ups and downs. It´s really amazing how a mission is like that. We lost some investigators, which broke my heart. But we also had some really amazing lessons with some investigators who are starting to progress, and I wouldn´t have traded those for anything.
I don´t know how it happened, I don´t know how he did it, but Heavenly Father has given me a love for these people that I have met and taught in this area. It´s really weird, actually. I haven´t known any of them for more than 3 months, most of them I still struggle to communicate with, but this week, I have just felt so much love for so many people here.
The mission is a crazy, hard, wonderful, beautiful thing.
Hope you all have a great week, and that you´re reading your scriptures and praying every single day.
Love and miss you all!
