Friends and Family,
This week has been great here in Provo. I have learned so much about myself as well as so many beautiful things about the gospel, and of course lots of Spanish. The district is great as well as my companion. We are all focused and we love the Lord and this work. Some random things that have happened are
-Every day during exercise we play this massive soccer game against the Germans it's way intense
-Pday is the greatest thing since sliced bread, it's literally the best we can even nap
-The only that sucks about Sunday but is also cool is that we all have to prepare a talk in spanish and they call up two people randomly to give them. Way sketchy
-Every day is pretty much like this
Class, breakfast, class, lunch, exercise, class, dinner, personal, companion, and language study, bed
-Tuesdays are cool cuz there is a devotional at night and we clean in the morning, cleaning is so great cuz it helps me sort of decompress, if you know me well you'll understand
-Every night I eat my candy and write letters and read letters and then I wipe down our whole room with clorox wipes! Ah its so great but everyone makes fun of me haha
-I see all the bros a lot and it's way cool to see them succeed!
-I am so stressed that I don't even eat a lot at mealtime, but the stress is good it keeps me focused
-I love all the packages that I have received, but please no more candy I already have more than I can eat! And something weird missionaries can't chew gum in public so that's no bueno
-I love getting handwritten letters too those are great
A cool experience that happened last Sunday was Elder H
was playing the piano for us, he's our district leader, and he was playing and singing the church version of hallelujah that talks about Christ. I was staring at the missionary purpose that I had to memorize in Spanish and listening to this beautiful song about what the Savior did for us, and I just about lost it. It was an amazing moment and the turning point for me here. Before that I was way depressed and overwhelmed, but now I am ready and excited to share the Lord's love with the Argentines.
Yo testifico que Jose Smith fue una profeta de Dios. Se que el libro de mormon es verdadero.
I am going full-send on this mission!
