Last week I couldn´t write because we had to go back to the house to get a couple of registro bautismales (sorry... I don´t remember how to say registro in English, but some baptismal forms) that we forgot, and we forfeited our internet time. Catching up on the writing that I had to do last week, I'm out of time today as well, but [Andrea] can put some of that stuff that I wrote to [her], especially about the 4th of July, in the blog.
[Excerpt from Jack's letter to me]
Concerning the Fourth of July, I tried my best to celebrate it. I decided to be as American as I could, eating a double-cheeseburger for breakfast, singing the National Anthem in the shower, etc. I even suggested that in our zone meeting we could sing a Hymn in the English Hymnbook (number 340) but I got rejected. There´s a strong possibility that I will be at home for the next 4th of July because the cycle of transfers got messed up with the mission split and everyone is going home 3 weeks earlier than the original plan.
