New Things Learned 9/21/2015

Dear Family and Friends,

Things I've learned this week:

1. Every ward activity in the hood, always starts 2 hours later than scheduled.

2. The meaning of '"African Time". An African, Paul, told me African time is where you come an hour late...or don't show  up at all.

3. If a Peruvian gives you a plate of rice and meat, and they are not mixed...DON'T MIX IT.

4. You know you have been teaching a lot of Africans when one of them says, "I've been shot in the head," and it doesn't even even faze you.

That's just a little of what's been going on in my week.

Today for P-day, we deep cleaned our piso, so of course, that was super fun.

We met with that really cool guy I was talking about last week. And yep, he is super cool. His name is perfect for him 'Salvador'. There are just great names here. Here are some Prince, Yours, Salvation, God's Power, Blessing. And all the rest who don't have some
out-there name, have the same couple of names. All the girls are named Paula (there's are twenty in our ward) and Rosa. Most of the men are Luis and Juan. But back to perfect Salvador, he is super cool and seems to be someone who is not a member of the Church because he has been 'kept from the truth, because he knew not where to find it.'  So vamos a ver (we shall see).

Don't worry, I get fed everyday, and am becoming a whale. So much food all the time. My favorite 'comida' we have every week is with a lady and the whole time all she talks about is how great her food is...Ha ha...The funny part is, it isn't. But she is amazing and so funny.

Also something I've been thinking about a lot---it doesn't matter what excuse you come up with, the gospel principles still apply. I love the words in Nephi when he is telling the story of Moses.

41.  And the labor which they had to perform was to look; and because of the simpleness of the way, or the easiness of it, there were many who perished.

The gospel is not hard. It's what makes life easy. His yoke is easy.

Love, Hermana Kelemen
