Numero 41 - Meskito meeting

Hey fam! Guess what?! Today is 300 days exactly in the mission! 300 days, wow. So crazy. Elder Monson, my mtc comp, told me that today. 

I am doing so good! This week has been great!

Well Puerto Cabezas, what can i say. What a beautiful place. I thought the pacific side was a beautiful place, but here doesnt even compare to the pacific. 

This place is so different though. I feel like I am starting my mission all over again. Why? Because everyone here speaks Meskito, everyone! I dont understand anything. Meskito literally sounds like caveman talk. It is like an African dialect. We have to bring the members to a lot of our lesson because the people understand Meskito better than spanish so we have to have our member translate for us sometimes. The spanish here isnt very good, just like mine, it is everyone's second language so they make mistakes. I think i speak a little bit better than the average person here. Thats why we bring members to our investigadors because they are more comfortable talking in Meskito. We still use a lot of spanish though. For the most part, everyone speaks spanish. Its so cool to hear Meskito though. I am going to study it really hard to learn it fast. There is a lot more english here too. The enlgish here is way different to though. All the people that speak english sounds like pure jamaicans. They all have super thick jamaican accents when they speak english. Most of the people here dont look like your normal latino. Most of the people here are very dark. They are way darker here than the pacific. I dont know why, but I think its cooler. All the houses are raised up on stilts here too and they are all made out of wood. I think it is because they live so close to the ocean and it rains super hard here. It has been raining super hard these last couple days. 
I taught a lesson literally, literally on the beach this week. It was so sick.  I got some sick sea shells too. That was pretty trunky. It reminded me of hawaii. 
We also had a baptism this weekend. We baptised a teenage guy named Moises. We had a nice baptism in the church with him. I got to baptise him. It was my "welcome to Puerto Cabezas" i guess. 
For the church, we have our meeting at 9 am. We had about 45 people go. Then at 3 there is another meeting and it is called the "Meskito meeting" so they only speak in Meskito. We are lucky because we have two chances to bring people to church and we get to practice our meskito in the church with singing hymns and stuff during the meskito meeting. I was so lost in that meeting because i cant understand anything but it was still cool. The church we have here is pretty nice. We have benches and everything and air conditioning. Its sick. 

Well, it has been a good week. I am excited for this one to come. That is what i got for you guys today!

I love you all so much! 

Nos Vemos
