|Elder Passey, M., and me before the baptismal service.|
I am becoming quite the creative cook out here, ha ha.
At times I feel like Masterchef: Nicaragua!
|We found a little friend.|
We also just barely found out from our Mission President's email that we will be having another multi-mission conference (probably just our mission and the Nicaragua North mission) on August 29th, and this time one of the apostles is coming. So now, rumors have once again started up that it will be a mission split to create a new mission (it does seem a little more legit with an apostle coming though). Also, this next week we have cambios, so we will be heading to Managua. It is very likely that none of my district here in Bluefields will be changed, but if someone does get transferred, it will probably be Elder Passey because he has the most time in this area of any of us, which is about 4 and a half months or so. I really hope that I don't go now because I really like Bluefields and we have a ton of super positive people for August that I want to see get baptized.
I am also learning a third language here in Bluefields -- I'm learning Miskito, the native language of several of the little communities out here. I have learned some of the basic terms, ha ha. In fact, a lot of people here speak a combination of Spanish and Miskito, and then there are others who speak a combination of Miskito and English-Creole. So I want to be trilingual, ha ha, but Miskito is super weird and I can't understand a single lick of it yet. Here are a few phrases, though:
To say "my name is Elder Olsen," you would say, "Yang nini ba Elder Olsen."
To say "I speak Miskito," you say, "Yang miskito aysisna."

A couple of hombres guapos!
Well, I am glad my family had a fun time in Yellowstone last week without me! Loved all the pictures and looks like they had a lot of fun, again without me. I have never been to Idaho or Yellowstone, ha ha, but the thing I can't believe is how tall my little brother looks! Well, that is about it for this week. I'm all good and healthy, skinny, and working hard here in Bluefields!
