For example, this coming week, we are going to have four baptisms in the district. We're going to have one here in 'Tandil 3' and where Elder James and Elder Weldon are, they're gonna have three. They're baptizing one of the families over there in 'Tandil 2' :)
We're really trying to go go go go go down here in Tandil. There are some pretty decent standards Presidente Detlefsen has set for us, especially before he leaves the mission. Because he's leaving in June and then we're going to have a new mission president, Presidente Parreño. He's from Spain.
I kind of felt what you meant when you were talking about having a crazy week with a bunch of things to do. :)
I gotta tell you something mom. It's been a little hard lately. Not hard enough to just give up, because I know I'm not going to do that, but still things lately have been a little difficult. Just makes me know what I need to do next to make this week better :)
MOM. Hold the phone on the MP3 player... don't send it just yet... I want to show you something, you may have already read this but here it is:
"Only listen to music that concurs with the sacred spirit of your calling. The music should invite the Spirit, help you concentrate on the work and direct your thoughts toward the Savior. Don't listen to music that takes thoughts away from the work, simply entertains, may have romantic lyrics or topics (something like that) or dulls the spiritual sensitivity because of it's rhythm, tempo, volume, lettering, or intensity."
OK. That is what it says in the Mission Manual, what I have to follow if we're going to have success down here :) I had to translate what I wrote there because I haven't seen my english mission manual for 8 months... but it's the same thing.
I wanted to show you that before you sent the MP3 player so that you could like proof-read or check the music before you send it down here. It's still my job to only listen to the appropriate kind of music while I'm here in the mission, but I wanted you to see what it says so you could have an idea... :) For example, a couple of things I don't want, after all, on that MP3 is the "Pirates of the Caribbean", and "Apocalyptica"....
One more thing, I want to send some letters and it costs me around $2.50 to send a letter. Can I have a little more money? :) And I will let you now the price of the rugby outfit, and the package that comes from here.
I really want/need those shoes, so if you can send them with Elder Fuentes, sweet! If not, we'll chat :)
Hey Mom!! I love you !!! I love being here and I hope to still be here in Tandil for a long time!!!
