Its hard out here, I miss you guys a lot.
Its getting better than it was at first. I've had a really rough first few days. A little bit homesick but its getting better. Im just trying to work all the time and keep my mind off of America or even Quito.
Where did you get placed?
I'm in the coast which is the most dangerous area so if you guys want to come pick me up dont even ask to go to the coast becuase we are definitely not.
How's the language?
I can't understand as muh as I speak. I'm having a hard time loving the people as a whole and not fearing them. It's getting better, just a bit of a culture shock. My comp is good but I wonder sometimes if we can work harder and do more. All I want to do is work and study but idk. Hes a good trainer. He's a native.
What's your house like?
My house is in a poor apartment building, and we have no water at all. we have to be creative with some things.
I shower with a bucket and we have water to use to flush the toilet. We sometimes get running water for 10-15 minutes so we fill up our jugs but that's about it.
I'll send pics but I'll only send pics of my house because Im too afraid to take my camera out outside the house.
How's your mission President?
My mission president is the best. I love my mission pres and his wife. She taught me a ton of easy recipes so I usually make breakfast because I want to try to eat healthy to stay healthy. My president told me he has a lot of trust in me and I think that's partially why I inherited a hard area with a hard situation.
How's the church down there?
My ward is great. The bishop is cool the secretary is probably my favorite. Hermano guito. Hes the man. Ya I've met most the members but I'm still learning and trying to gain their trust and everything.
Where do you get food and water?
I have a water bottle with a filter I use. I drink mostly juice though. It tastes better and hidrates me. We have about 20 6 liter water jugs. Theres a local tienda right outside our house we hit up for some stuff. They have this orange juice that is amazing! Oh ya for food other than lunch. I usually buy a loaf of bread in the morning and then during study at night I just eat piece after piece. I eat about a loaf of bread a day.
