I´m sorry everyone that I didn´t get an email out last week. I went to the beach and the bus got back too late to do anything. There´s something I learned, The buses run your life if you´re going out of town. If you want to plan anything, make sure bus variations are included.To respond to some questions:
I have picture of my House that my mom will put on facebook as soon as I get them on Dropbox (everything here loads so slowly) (If you don´t have me on face book it is James VanderMeyden). There are only the 2 of us in the house because the other missionaries in the area are the sisters who live in front of the Cook and work South Nicoya.
I can´t really compare the cost of things here to in America because I really didn´t buy much while I was in America and the conversion makes things weird. I haven´t run out of money yet though. :)
We also just found some Mormon Messages in Spanish and we´ve been showing them to investigators and stuff. However, we started watching them last night and this morning to see which ones we wanted to and could share (it´s scratched up so we can´t show every one of them) and I can again testify of the Gift of Tongues. The trick is to listen with your heart and your ears, one is not enough. If you do both, however, you can understand the entire thing without understanding most of the words.
Last thing: I went to San Josè today for the VISA stuff and got to see some really great friends. I also bought a stuffed Shy Guy from the Mario Brothers. I feel like it is a good choice for me and it shows both my Nerdy and fun sides. I also gathered a ton of shells at the beach (my companion was a bit mad because I had to borrow a pocket in his backpack and I got it super sandy).
That´s all for this week.Elder VanderMeyden Signing off
