|Where am I going...|
|Veracruz, Mexico Temple|
The MTC is wonderful. The first day of our adventure here was quite eventful. I had to go through all kinds of lines and places in order to get my tags, my white handbook, all of the textbook and spanish books that i will be using throughout my stay. That day we had a new missionary orientation which was very nice and needed to ease my nerves a little bit. Then we went right to class and studied for three hours, had dinner (the food here is really good), then had three more hours of study. We then met with our Branch President whose name is President Bradley. he is fluent in five languages so it was really intimidating lol.
My companions name for these nine weeks of the MTC is Elder Robertson. He is a little different than i am but we seem to be good at getting along, studying and teaching our investigator. Yes. We are already teaching investigators. IN SPANISH!!!! I am able to have basic level communication with our investigator and get accross our points but my companion is so knowledgeable in the gospel but gets really nervous when we are teaching. I guess that is something that will come with time for all of us. Our second day of our stay our teacher said that we were teaching our investigator that night! It was a surprise and everybody was extremely scared. One elder was so scared that he literally pooped his pants!!! lol He shared that with us today because eh said he was now comfortable dnough with everybody. Yes i do miss everybody and i am so greatful for the care and concern of every body. If anybody would like to right me have them email me on http://DEARELDER.COM. I dont know how it works but the MTC gets the email, prints it, then brings it to me. TELL THEM TO INCLUDE THEIR ADDRESS SO I CAN HAND WRITE THEM BACK!!!!
I only get to email family and once a week so i will be only writing hand written letters to everybody during the week. I was sitting at dinner one day and somebody hit my shoulder and i looked and beheld a large man in stature standing before me. His name was Elder Riffenburg!!! It was awesome to see him! he says that he is fluent and just loved everything about his stay. I ran into him a few times after that and gave him some goodbye hugs last night as he went into the field this morning. He is going to do an amazing jod! Sunday was the most amazing thing i have felt in my life. The spirit was so strong in all of my meetings that i cried in every single one, and there was five. It was an amazing experience and one that was greatfully welcomed. The executive director of the MTC gave the devotional and i got a seat right in the middle of the floor seats and it felt as if he was speaking directly to me. It was the most spiritual thing i have ever felt in my life. Yo se que La Iglesia De JesuCristo De Los Santos De Los Ultimos Dias es verdadera. Yo se que JesuCristo es el salvador del mundo y es el hijo de Dios. Yo se que fui llamaba de Dios a sirvir en Veracruz Mexico. Love all of you and i miss you dearly.
