Halo Keluarga Saya

Hey Guyzzzzzz
Ahhh I can't believe that I only have 18 days left!!!!! I'm getting so excited to get out of here!!!! We got Chick-Fil-A on Monday again, so I was super happy about that! But other than that everything is about the same here.  I was made zone leader on Sunday, so now I have a cell phone!! But everything is blocked, so I can only receive calls and call MTC numbers.  But it's still cool to have. It's been pretty lonely since everyone left on Monday and Tuesday.  But I am getting along better with my comps, so that is good.  We now call our zone, Zone Monson, and they refer to me as Raja Monson.
Language wise I kind of hit a wall on Tuesday. I had spent so much time studying Rencanna Selamatan and preparing for our lesson with one of our investigators, then when we got into the lesson I completely forgot Sumua Bahasa Indonesian.  So our lesson was super awkward for about the first 5 minutes, but then I just started talking about Kitab Mormon cause that's the only topic I could remember how to speak about, and our lesson went super well.  It was so weird cause I've been terrified to bring up Kitab Mormon with our simpatisan because he's muslim. but that just was a real kesaksian to me that it doesn't matter what I think a person needs, cause our Heavenly Father has a plan for everyone, and I'm just a mouthpiece for him.  Ever since then I'm picking up the language faster than ever. Like I'm starting to forget the English words for certain things a say all day (Hence the Indonesian words scattered throughout my email today).  After I had such a rough time on Tuesday I really have improved my focus during study time. I've decided to mempertanggungjawabkannya (25 letters meaning take responsibility) for my progress. Before this week I wasn't really doing my part, I asked for the gift tongues every day but I wasn't doing my part. But every since I've been focused on diligently studying I'm picking up the language so quickly.
I just can't wait to get to Indonesia though. I think that I get my travel plans tomorrow!!!! Both of my teachers speak about what Indonesia is like for the first hour of class and I just get so excited.  Brother Rawle has had us practicing squatting so that when we get there we can go to the bathroom.  It's so hard, your feet are supposed to be closer than shoulder width apart, and your heels have to stay on the ground and you try to get enam inches from the hole to reduce splashing. And he just talks about how the makanan is pedas sekali. But there are Micky D's Banyak and he said they're way good. I just am so excited for the new experiences I will have.

Saya mau anda sumua tahu bahwa saya mengasi anda!! dan saya berdoa menganai anda semua, dan saya fickir menganai anda semua jam semua.
