First Letter from the MTC!

11 de Octubre, 2012

¡Hola Mamita!

¡Te extraño! Lo siento, quiero escríbete in puro español, pero no puedo ya. Siento que mi español es un poco mejor, pero tengo mucho aprender. Me gusto mis compañeras. Si, tengo dos compañeras. Estoy en un “trio,” Mis compañeras son Hermana Carlson (de Idaho) y Hermana Dudely (de Virginia). Nos roomates son comidico… pero un poco fuerte (as in loud, not strong). El MTC es difícil, es overwhelming, y es diferente que I imagined. – Ensenamos nos primera lección en la mañana. Estoy muy nervioso, pero tengo fe que voy a esta bien.

Well, enough Spanish. I’ve only been here a day and a half, but it feels like much longer. The days are packed and I feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Yesterday, I was feeling so joyful & full of love – today was a little more challenging. Well, you know me, I don’t sleep when I get stressed. I tried but didn’t fall asleep until around 5 am & then had crazy dreams until I got up at 6:30. I was pretty grumpy, tired, and feeling discouraged all morning. I was even disliking my companions. Thankfully we had gym time aroun 10:15 & I felt much better after some yoga & cardio. Hermana Dudely didn’t sleep well either.

Oh! My zone leaders are hilarious. We had a meeting with them today & our district could not stop laughing for about 20 minutes. I’m sure the meetings could have been more productive but it was good. Our district is very small, only 5 people (2 companionships). Us and Elder Moss & Elder Gardner.

I think I got a package from you today (did you send me a package?), but by the time I got the notification to pick it up the mailroom was closed. ☹ I’ll have to see tomorrow.

Well, lights out. I’ll email next week. I love you so much Mama! Please pray for me.

Con Amor,
Hermana Escalante

P.S. ¡Te quiero! ¡Mucho!
P.P.S. The food is good ☺
