CCM Week Two

This week in the CCM the spanish has become alot more complicated but i use a ton of aditional study for language study! Also the gift of tongues is real. I can confidently talk to locals and keep up a pretty good conversation! Okay Hermana Simmons says hello to kaitlyn and Lindsey Larsen! Hermanna Simmons is the Heptathlete from BYU. The other day i was playing soccer and i was running to catch a ball, then i tripped into the edge of the sidewalk, I have Water on the Knee or bursitis, but Hermana Simmons probably Has a meniscus tear or an MCL Sprain. She Has recovered quickly and she was the very first person i have ever blessed! It was an awesome feeling!
Challenge of the week to everyone! You have to find a fruit called a Granadilla it is probably the best fruit i have ever eaten, You dont chew the seeds you just slurp it like jello! It is really good but kinda strange! I have enjoyed all the exotic and new food here in the CCM.
I was blessed today with a friend from idaho! Hermana Stephenson was in the capilla and it was great to see a friendly face from good ol idaho! The Food has still been treating me well and We had the first group of latinos and advanced americans to leave! The other elders warned me that you get super attachted and you become realy good friends with the latino elders and then they leave and it is unfortunate because now you have to reateach all the newbies english and they arent your super great friends. sorry for the lack of apostraphes i cant find the button on the spanish keyboard! So far we have gone to Two of the shopping places to go on Pday one of them is like albertsons and the other is a giant walmart with little garage shops on the side. One of the people in my district had a  five minute lesson with one of the locals on teh bus and they gave them a book of mormon.
The CCM Is deffinately blessed as a place of learning. Sorry for all the typos in this email I dont have anytime to look over anyting i have written. I have had so many blessings the spanish is coming easily and my teachers are super cool! Our district is speaking better spanish then alot of the poeple they just sent out into the field, our teachers are super impressed with our ability to retain knowledge, however there is always room to improve and we need not rest for the lords work is grand, and we must do all we can. We have a schedule and all the time of every day is filled with studies and classes. Okay first off i have to say I am so proud of my weber family and Espescialy Lindsey for getting a pic with my family but i gave you guys a shout out and only two of you emailed me, ;D nah i am just teasing! You guys are all probably swiming in college homework but i want you to know that the lord never gives us a challenge that we cannot  acomplish! Nephi 3:7
well thats all from elder tanner for this week but i love you guys and keep up the hard work! I just want you guys to know this saying "Siempre Sonrisas, Todos Los Dias" It means Always smiles, all the days! your smiling can lift people up and improve the day durastically its insane how much it helps.
