I am finally in the misison field. Sorry I could not write last week, we did not have a P-Day. I would tell you about my last week in the MTC but I feel like you would rather know about my first week in the field. As you can see from the Heading I am in San Juan. It is a town in the mountains in Guatemala. I like it because it is one of the coolest parts of my mission. I do not like the heat and this is almost the hottest time of the year here. They speak two languages here so it can be confusing, however right now I am only focusing on Spanish. Sometimes my companions will speak the other language and I will get super confused.

|What I woke up to my first morning in the field|
Being in the mountains we travel a lot. We travel by walking, riding buses and Taxi's ( Tuk Tuks) We are always going places. I actually really like the buses because there are always a lot of people on them and they drive really fast. People do not really follow speed limits here. I love teaching people and helping them. When we go to houses it is crazy. The houses are tiny and very dark. A lot have dirt floors and they are just so dirty. What is interesting is that the peoples cloths are usually clean. There is trash everywhere in the street and dogs and cats running around. It is different but I am getting used to it and I know that I can help these people by teaching them about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
