Only a little more than 2 weeks left here at the CCM which is crazy to think about. I'm super excited but a little scared at the same time. Spanish is killer. It is definitely a difficult task learning a new language, but also brings many blessings. This week has been a great one.
On Saturday night we had the Mexico City Mexico cultural celebration for the re-dedication. That was super fun to watch. It was like a play which was super cool. It was like watching a movie haha. The main dude in it came to the CCM the other day and all the missionaries acted like he was some celebrity. It was pretty funny. Then on Sunday morning, we got to watch the actual dedication of the temple. It was awesome. President Eyring and Elder Holland spoke. It made me really excited for general conference in October. We are so blessed to live in a time with a Prophet of God.
Anyways, today we got to actually go to the temple. It was really nice to get outside of the wall for a little while. It was like entering back in the real world for a few hours. We didn't get to go to a session sadly. There are just too many of us for everyone to go so only few randomly selected districts got to go and mine wasnt one of them. We did however get to go to the visitors center. That place was super nice. We didnt have a lot of time there but it was way cool.
I don't really remember if I talked about it last week, but we are still teaching Ricardo and Lupita who are our teachers. That is going really well so far. We taught Ricardo the gospel of Jesus Christ the other day which was really good. He recorded that lesson too which was pretty scary. It is really nice to get feedback right after we finish teaching. We immediately get to know what we did good and what we need to improve on.
Other than that, things are going pretty awesome here in Mexico. On Tuesday night, it was independence day for Mexico. That was pretty crazy. We had to be in our houses by 9 30 because apparently people like to shoot their guns in the air haha. They said they have found bullets in the roofs of some of the houses haha but there were fireworks and music playing all night. That was a lot of fun until we wanted to go to sleep. Its safe to say that wasnt the best night of sleep I have ever had haha.

Anyways, I hope everyone is doing alright. Keep me updated.
