See This Skirt?

It's actually wrinklier than all my other skirts but you can't really tell, especially when I twirl it like this!

I've got less than a week left in the CCM! That's less than seven days til I am on an eight hour bus ride to Huancayo.... to the Andes! I'm so excited!!!!

However, that does not mean that I have anything more exciting to write about.... I mean, we've still been doing to same thing everyday. So I'm going to tell you about my district:

At the CCM your district is basically your family. You learn spanish with them, you have physical activity with them, you room with half of them.... seriously EVERYTHING! You get incredibly close to all of them.

Hermana Larsen is my compañera. She's pretty much amazing. She is always happy no matter what. Seriously, she's had to go to the hospital because of the food and nobody except our district knew she was sick because she is literally always smiling. We struggled the first four or so weeks in our companionship because we are both very different but we were able to sit down and talk about just everything: our problems, what we do good, etc and now there is no one else that I would take a bullet for. She's a people person and her testimony radiates from her. She's just incredible.

Hermana Pali is someone that I met on facebook before we even got here and we ended up sharing a room! How cool is that. She is basically the sweetest thing ever. She is so knowledgable about the scriptures (like she can pull a scripture about anything from anywhere). She gave us all presents this morning. Her love is really in the details and the small things. She always knows when something is wrong with somone and she's just incredible.

Hermana McDonald is Hermana Pali's compañera. Hermana McDonald can draw like no other. She's currently drawing us four girls as the pink ladies from Grease. She's our fashion advice person so basically we always look good. District 106 is always on point. She's definitely someone who cares more about others than herself though.

And then we've got our elders: Elder Woodbury, Elder Quinney and Elder Garside. They are basically hilarious without trying to be. and The conversations we have with them during free-ish time are crazy: Blood-type, spirit animals, Barbie movies, how nobody actually knows what dry cleaning is, and what Disney characters we would be
(according to Elder Woodbury I am Giselle)

Our district is fantastic and It's going to be incredibly sad when I have to leave them all but at the same time I'm so excited to serve and meet new people. SO excited. 

Cool experience this week actually: a group of activity days age girls came to visit the CCM and our district was outside so we were able to talk to them for like half an hour. They were so small we thought they were like 5 or 6! One of them named Maria became very attached to me and didn't want to leave when it was time to leave. She gave me a bracelet.... I'll send a picture next week, but it's like those beads that always brake so you twist them together. It was so fun to just talk to all of them. They are so sweet. They asked us why missionaries are described as angels so I was able to tell them that angels are messengers from God and so are we. It was very special.

I love you all so very much, thank you for all of your prayers. I can feel them :)
Love, Hermana Blanca
