My teachers are awesome! I love them so much already. They always know exactly what to say to get me motivated and to help me grow more than I ever thought I could. My favorite teacher is brother Norton and he served in Suriname so it's really cool because he tells us lots of things about Suriname and kinda what to expect. It gets me so excited, it sounds like such and adventure. The Elders are so excited because they get to carry machetes. I'm not sure how I feel about that...
The Elders in my district are so great, I can't even tell you how much they have helped me. I was basically 3 days behind and now I have caught up to them. We are already so close since there is only 4 of us. We take breaks from studying and talk and tell stories. Which is nice since we were in class for 10 hours yesterday.. It's a nice break.
Ok so my Zone Consists of Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, and Suriname! I have the best Zone. Everyone is so nice and helpful. All the experienced Dutches going to the Netherlands leave next week so they help me so much with my pronunciation and with advice on how to learn the language faster. I'm so grateful for them.
So, good news! I got to see Koy (Elder Huxford) two different times already! It was so nice to see a familiar face. Haha it's kinda weird though... We can't give eachother a hug or be in a picture with just the two of us. I mean really we are cousins. But rule are rules... In the devotional last night John H. Groberg came and talked to us. You know the movie The Other Side of Heaven? Yeah, that is about him. He was such a good speaker. He talked a lot about different ways we can share our testimonies and how we don't just share them with our words but with our actions. And I really liked that it was a good reminder to me that I can not only touch peoples lives with the spirit through my words but also with the way that I act. I love you all so much and thank you to everyone who has written me it means so much! I'm doing great and loving it here.
