This week just seemed like it came and went, but I sure did do a lot thats for sure. This week Elder Kimball and I started teaching two new investigators, Carolina and Ezra. So far we have only had one lesson with both of them but, I would say that they both went really well. Its amazing to see the progress we have made in one week. I can get through a whole lesson in spainsh without looking at my notes! haha. We taught Carolina about la primera vision. It was awesome because Elder Kimball had the scripture in JSH memorized and he said it perfectly. The spirit we felt when he said that was amazing. Sadly our time was up right when he finished so we couldn’t get the reaction from Carolina and how she felt about it. But it was definitely awesome and very encouraging. Our lesson with Ezra was also good. He doesn’t really believe in God. So we taught him about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and about faith. We had prepared to teach the first vision so I was a little nervous that I would have to talk about something else and about something else that is didn’t study any spanish about. But it went great. I taught what I knew and things went really well.
This week for our devotional we had the general Releif Society presidnt Julie Beck speak to us. It was a pretty awesome talke she gave. She was talking about how la plenitud del Evangelio is achieved by going to the temple and partaking of those temple ordinances. At the end she also said that the 3 most important things on your mission are to love your companion, the people, and your president. That is something I have focused on this week. Just trying to become better friends with my companion and develop that love.
I am having a great time here at the MTC. I really love my district. We are all great friends and I love my teachers as well. Its pretty amazing how much you learn here. Gym time and mail time are probably the funnest times of the day haha. During gym I play some basketball but there are some pretty dang good people here. Elder Dalton in my district got dunked on earlier this week haha, that was pretty funny. We played soccer for the first time the other day. The weather has been pretty bad this week so the field has been closed. It was nice to get a little taste of what I’ll be doing most every P-day. And we all love mail time. We get mail at lunch and at dinner and they are seriously the best times of the day. We all get together by the post office hoping that we get letter. I CAN TELL YOU THAT MISSIONARIES LOVE LETTERS SO KEEP SENDING LETTERS!
I’m sorry I haven’t sent any pictures yet. I don’t think I can plug my USB thing on these computers, and the machine that develops pictures is out of order right now. But I will send some home as soon as possible.
Well time is up. I love you all thanks for the support!
