Week 3 - Jujuy

Monday, April 14, 2014

Buenas Tardes. 

Voy a empezar a contestar sus preguntas.

 [In our letter to him, we did ask a lot of questions, so you probably won’t understand some of his answers.]

1) Yes I did get to stay and watch the Priesthood. 
2) Elder Acevado, he is from Logan Utah. His dad is from Guatemala. Elder Alvarez is from Honduras. [These elders are the ones he shares his apartment with].
3) The apartment is good. A lot smaller than Frias. But its good. I have a bed and mattress. I have to buy a new frame because mine is broken. We have a washer and a dryer that just gets all the water out and we have to hang up our clothes.  [Maybe he meant to say he does not have a dryer?].
4) The church here is about 10-15 minutes away walking. The stake center is about 20-30 or so in a taxi. Church starts here at 9:30 until 12:30. 
5) My schedule is 30 minutes earlier. We get up at 7 instead of 7:30. And in Jujuy they dont have a set time for the siesta for everyone to sleep. Places are still open. 
6) Sight seeing I have no idea. We have a downtown place thats cool. 
7) The sister was right. Usually you clap. But we will knock doors with your hands but it is usually just clapping. [We heard from a sister on a YouTube video who served in the Salta Mission that instead of knocking on doors . . . you clap, and we asked Alec about this.]

I am glad you guys had a good week. I was happy to know that David got his mission call. Please tell him that I am thankful for his desire to serve, he will always love these two years for the rest of his life and that I am proud of him and love him. 

So I will tell you a little about my week. I dont have a lot to tell. Just a couple events. 

One night we had a huge deep doctrine talk it was super interesting. We talked about all sorts of things. We also know when the world is going to end and when Christ will come :) It is the 6th of April 2025. So we still have a little bit of time left, haha.

In church yesterday a funny thing happened. We were sitting up in the front and a kid was up playing in the front. He fell over on his side and then rolled on his back. Then he didnt move for like 15 seconds and looked like he had died. Then a sister got up and was checking him starting to worry. Then the kid jumped up and screamed because she scared him.

I have a little more but I dont have time.  

I love you all so much. I will see you next week. 

Elder Dawson
