I had a really hard week this week as my companion has stopped talking to me because I can´t understand her. I don´t really blame her--there´s no point in talking to someone who doesn´t understand what you´re saying! It´s been hard to feel the contention and not really be able to help it though. I am working hard to learn fast and learn a lot. I am really bad at remembering things, especially vocabulary words, so I am praying a lot too that Heavenly Father will help me.
One year of girl´s camp when I was a YCL, I prayed for two months before the week of camp that I would be able to remember all the names of the girls in my level (first year girls) because I am so bad at remembering. That year of camp, I was able to remember all of the names of the girls. I felt closer to the girls and was able to help them better because I knew all of their names. I know Heavenly Father helped me with my memory that year. I definitly would not have been able to do that alone with my crazy mind. I know He will help me again with remembering words in Spanish, I just have to learn to be patient with myself even when the world is not so patient with me. I understand way more than when I started this thing though--going from not speaking any Spanish to being able to have a full conversation in Spanish in two months is pretty amazing. I am grateful for the things I am learning, and grateful for Heavenly Father´s help with everything I do.
There is no word for creepy in Spanish. This creepy thing I walk by every night. It has "real" hair and eyelashes, but no eyeballs. Super Super creepy!
