Buenas a mi familia y mis amigos! Como estan a todo?
Good week up here in good ole Esteli. I am working hard up here with my new comp, Elder Bickmore.
Something cool happned this week that was super crazy.....I had my first dream in spanish this week! It wasnt anything crazy, but I was just talking normal in my dreams to my companion in spanish. I felt pretty cool when I got up haha. That is a stepping stone in the mission for me! Pretty beasty. I am so much more comfortable here than I was my first week here. I feel comfortable talking to anyone now. I still dont have a super strong vocabulary and dont understand everything, but I can understand the gist of what people are saying. I still have so much farther to go, but I am so happy at where I am at right now. Elder Bickmore has ten months in the mission so he can talk better than I can, so he helps me out a lot too.

Apparently John didn't get the "casual" memo
The new comp and I are doing good. He is a cool kid and we work well together. He came from Leon and is our district leader. I might get changed in three weeks so we might only have a couple weeks together, but we will see!
This week was a little difficult for me because I am still fairly new in this area and dont know everything here and Elder Bickmore was new here so it was a little harder having to remember everywhere we needed to go and find all of our meetings. In other words, I pretty much had to put the team on my back this week and I feel like I did pretty well. We taught some very spiritual lessons and were able to find a bunch of people this week.
One thing here that bothers me more than anything is the people here are just too nice to tell me the truth. There are a lot of people here that just lie to my face because they are too scared to tell me no. I dont know why people cant just tell the truth. I had like 10 people tell me they were going to church this week and they never went. I have definitely had to learn to have a little bit of patience (which is definitely not my strong suit). But, I guess that is something good to learn.
All in all, a good week here. I love this place and have such good relationships with some people here.
I hope everyone has a great week this week! I love you all!
