Let’s see, what food do I eat. I eat a lot of tortillas as well as frijoles (beans) and chicken. Personally, I cook a lot of pasta like spaghetti and mac and cheese. Members feed us rice and what not. Ha, ha, they don’t often sell whole pigs for eating, but hey I have friends in Hawaii that do stuff like that.
My day to day routine is a lot of talking to people in the streets and knocking on doors, asking if people want to know more about Jesus. Sometime I teach people, other times I don’t. I am always walking, and walking and walking.
The talk I gave was soooooo very stressful. Awww! my word I was so unprepared. They gave me the topic Friday night (as if I have all the time in the world to write a talk in two days).
The topic was honoring our moral standards and they attached a conference talk in Spanish for me to review. Lol, they are so sweet trying to help me out but I am a poor Spanish reader. Luckily I have been listening to nearly all the priesthood sessions from 1994 to present day to better understand my purpose as a missionary. Once I started reading the talk I recognized it as one I had listened to not too long ago so that helped a ton. Sunday came and I did my best, I took up the whole 15 minutes, but that’s just due to how slow I read (I quoted 2 scriptures and a paragraph from this talk). All in all it went well and I was given sweet compliments like, “Your talk was very inspiring Elder Perez" or “I was so impressed with your Spanish.”
