Today was good, went to the office and Pres was there! So we got to talk to him for a little bit. He served his mission over in the Quetzaltenango areas in Guatemala, and learned a few words in Kekchi (The Q'eqchi' language, also spelled Kekchi, is one of the Mayan languages, natively spoken within Q'eqchi' communities in Guatemala and Belize). And in July him and Hna Dester will have 2 years as mission president here, so my last 6 weeks here I'll have a new mission president, as they serve for 3 years. So that will be interesting, already excited to see who it will be.
And we walked around all over creation and taught some lessons, it's interesting to see that the children are a lot more receptive than most adults... we're currently teaching 2 kiddos and it's pretty neat, almost feels like I'm teaching in Primary again, ha! Using lots of object examples and pictures. And really, that's how we're supposed to teach, simply and comfortable. With adults we can get caught up in semantics and obscure points of doctrine, but it is so much easier to teach children. Maybe that's why we should become humble and meek like a child, so we can actually learn what our Heavenly Father is teaching us, and not get hung up on all the little stuff that really doesn't matter to your testimony. Good to think about.
This is our soap and stuff for laundry, mine's the big green cylinder, pretty neat huh? It's a big round cylinder because we roll it on our wet clothes and then scrub them, about 3 inches in diameter and 5 in length when it's brand new (as mine is).
