February 24, 2015

So this week hasn't been especially exciting, but there were a few fun events to happen this week.  Like we played signs again and I made a few more magic tricks up.  I'll have to video them and send them to you for next week.  People love that I can always blow peoples minds, especially with my ring tricks.  So first this week started with FHE.  I've begun to enjoy it a lot more now.  At first it wasn't too fun since we didn't know everyone very well, but now I really like it since we know everyone.  On another note I found gymnast rings here!! I'm so psyched!! It's been the most fun thing to do since I can't really run much with my knee still recovering and all, but I have been able to play some volleyball and other things. I have a knee brace now, which is the most comfortable thing ever.  Way better than the ones we tried buying at home before.  I wear it pretty much all the time.  

We also went to get our visas finalized.  That took us out to the big part of Mexico City, which was basically LA.  Me and some of the other guys tried to talk with the natives.  I did magic tricks and we talked about the gospel a little bit afterwards.  They could tell our Spanish was super duper bad though. Most people just ignored us.  I also had a moment of realization of why I'm here. I want to make everyone's life better! I just want to serve people and make them smile. Baptisms are just a side reward as long as I can make a person happier than they were before. And hopefully my impression on them will lead them to baptism in years to come if they don't end up baptized after a lesson from me (which is ridiculous of course).  

This week elder Faasao got sick so I had to spend a day at the casa with him. That was kinda boring, but we still were able to have fun while I juggled and stuff.  I've been drinking a ton of juice which is to be expected.  There have been a lot of times where I can't think of a word in English, but I can in Spanish so that's great. I cant think of anything super duper interesting to happen this week, sorry. I did send Allison a letter yesterday so we will see when that arrives to her dorm. Also if you feel so inclined to send me a package or a tangible letter you can do it through a service called, I think. You can even get me Krispy Kremes. but don't worry, I don't expect any of that.  Letters would sure be nice though! They only take like 1 day to arrive since they print them out here! Isn't that awesome!? Anyways that's pretty much it. If you have any specific questions let me know and I'll get back you guys. 

Love you guys!
Elder Jacobs
