|This view reminds me of Tacoma. |
It looks so much better in real life though. :D
|Before and after, I guess...|
Before I begin, I should tell you none of the extra keys on this keyboard work, like exclamation points, question marks, and apostrophes. So I guess just prepare for that. Haha.
That is so awesome that Tessa is going to the Phillipines. CRAZY. And I do not even know how to pronounce the language she will speak.
I love reading about what is going on at home, hopefully you enjoy my letters as much. Sometimes I think you guys are busier than I am out here. :D
This week I want to tell you about divisions, which we had.
So at district meeting Elder F told me we were having divisions. I thought for sure I would go with him, but he told us Elder B, his companion who he is training, and I would work in his area. I could not believe my ears, and I will tell you why. :D
|We have a lot of these, scurrying around our house. :D|
Elder B really, really struggles with Spanish. It takes him like thirty seconds to say one sentence. A sentence that does not make sense. :D And I am not perfect either. After all, I have about six weeks in the mission, so I definitely cannot understand everything people are saying yet. I am getting there though. Not to brag, but my Spanish is almost as good as Elder F, our district leader, who has been here for eight months. :D My classes before the mission and the MTC really helped. Anyways.
But divisions was a lot better than I thought it would be. It was a little hard sometimes when Elder B tried to say something and the investigators did not understand hardly anything. Sadly, this happened a lot. But he is trying, which is the important part.
I learned that most important in a lesson is the Spirit. In one of our lessons I felt the Spirit so strong as Elder B and I shared our testimonies about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. There is not a better feeling. As missionaries it is crucial to teach with the Spirit. If it is not there, there is little point in teaching. I learned at divisions that I need to make sure to always bear my testimony with sincerity, with feeling, so my investigators can feel that I really do have a strong testimony of the Gospel. And I learned I need to work on my Spanish todavía. ;D
Elder Leatherow and I are doing great. I am having my first changeand I really hope he will still be my trainer. I am pretty sure he will be though.
I want to be ready in six weeks to train, if the Lord calls me to it. My goal is to finish El Libro de Mormon and be completely ready to teach by myself if I have to.
We shall see though, I might just be a junior missionary. I hope not though. :D
Elder Leatherow and I had a bunch of crazy lessons this week, from teaching a possessed man to teaching a deaf lady. Trust me, I will have a lot of stories when I get home. They do not give us enough time every week for emailing. :D
I hope you have an awesome week, praying for you every day.
I love you,
|BREAKFAST. First time I made plátanos. They were really good. |
I will have more tomorrow morning. Funny story, one of our new
investigators gave them to us. Way cool.
|One of the pasajes. Kind of cool. :D|
