|Yes, that is a snail crawling up this Elders's face. |
Glad we are taking this seriously...
This week has flown by so fast! 200 new missionaries entered the MTC on Tuesday and it was so great to greet them during a huge rainstorm! Rain is very common here, and I have come to absolutely love it, because Hermana Masina and I always end up running barefoot through the river of a street to get to class:D
Funny moments: This week we were able to teach in TRC (which is where we teach "real members" because they come from "outside of the wall." They were all very nice, but their Spanish was so fast that I could hardly understand them. I tried to tell them that their family was very kind and warm, but I ended up telling them that I was very hot in their presence. Whoops! Also, the other night, our house decided that it would be a good idea to do Bible charades in order to get to know the stories better. One particular night, our room was in charge, and chose to reenact Noah´s arc, so naturally, Hermana Masina and I decided to act as caterpillars. It was SO funny, and now, our house will never forget that Noah gathered caterpillars to be on the boat too!
Cultural moment: There are lots of phrases in Spanish that aren´t used in English. One of these great words includes "SuperWow!" This means exactly as it intends, but it is so funny to use! I challenge all of you to try using it in your sentences/classes/work this week;)

As one might have guessed, they lost.
I love you all so much! Thanks for your great examples to me:)
Love, Hermana Garff
Katie also writes us a separate letter. I have decided to include a little of that letter for all of the "Piano/Choir- Pushing Parents" - or current piano students that may read this. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.:
