I'm a little surprised you guys are getting by without me! :) Kidding. But I guess your life wouldn't be complete if you weren't improving our home in some way. Haha!
Last week I realized Devin had probably emailed me to my other email account, so I sent him an email last week. I will read his email in a few minutes and if I have time I'll tell you how he's doing. He probably already has 50 baptisms or so. ;)
This week was so great! It's so weird to think it has already been three weeks! Halfway there. Out of the MTC, I mean. Haha! I only have 99 weeks left total! ;) Pretty much I have been studying Spanish nonstop, learning the gospel, reading the scriptures, eating really good food, and drinking tons of chocolate milk! (They have unlimited chocolate milk here, and orange juice, lemonade, milk, etc.) :)
My Spanish has improved so much. Yesterday I taught a Latino about "Revelation Through the Book of Mormon" and my words were really flowing together! It felt great. I also memorized the first five verses of D&C 4 yesterday in like half an hour. It takes a bit longer in a different language. :)
My highlight of the week was when President Cox, who has been having health problems and was being looked after in a Seattle hospital, came back and spoke to us in two devotionals. He is probably the most inspiring speaker in the world. I was so pumped after his devotional! His topic was "High Expectations." I am so much more inspired to work as hard as I can. I'm thinking I should be able to hit 100 baptisms or so a month. What do you think? Just kidding. Still, I am looking forward to the mission field so much now!
This week the new Elders came in. It's nice to see some new faces and make new friends! We have some pretty cool new roommates, two "gringos" and three Latinos. Way cool! :) It's kind of weird to think I was in their shoes only three weeks ago. I had no clue what was going on. I tried to give them some good advice and help them feel welcome.
I got a lot of emails today, I wish I could say more but I should probably check my other ones. :)
I hope everything is amazing back at home!
I love you,
I was gaping when Mom mentioned that you wanted to go on a mission in her email! That would be way cool! Is it official already, or are you still deciding? It has been the best experience for me so far, you should do it!
No way! I can't wait to go. I got to visit the temple today and the celestial room at the Guatemala temple is so beautiful too! The Spirit is so strong. Tessa. Did you ACTUALLY drool [in the Ogden Temple open house]? Hahaha! Kidding.
Hope you have a better week!
Love you back!
