Wk 5 - ¡¡Todo es Bien!!

Area: Mexico Mtc
Companion: Elder Siggard
been raining alot! 
Elder Sheffield (our neighbor) and Elder Smoot!

Today was my last P day in the CCM!! it is crazy how time flies but i am ready to leave and get in the mission field!! i had a really cool experience when we did TRC this past week. TRC is when they get volunteers and we teach them. Most are usually non members. elder siggard and i had 2 girls who were around 20 and didnt really have a religion they belonged to. elder siggard and i talked about the holy ghost and how it helps us in our lives. we had a really good lesson and they said they would pray to see if the church was true and attend church this sunday so that was cool! they also said they will find out if they should be baptized as well! we cant teach them anymore so hopefully all worked out with that! 

it has been a good last week here in the mtc!! i have seen mark quite a bit here in the mtc which is pretty cool!! 

I leave this next week on monday at 8 25 is when my plane leaves! i will leave the mtc around 4 30. i am not sure if i will call you at the mexico airport or the chile one in Santiago! it is about at 8 hour flight so if i call at Santiago it will be early in the morning. then i have a 3 hour lay over and only a 1 hour flight after that!

I am very grateful for this mtc experience i have had! i think my favorite day out of the week is sundays because you feel the spirit really strong pretty much all day!! you are more focused on spiritual things and not really learning a language! i feel pretty good about my spanish only in giving lessons. it is still kinda of hard for me to talk about a lot of things but a normal conversation is pretty easy. i know i will pick it up eventually! 

i just want my family to know i love them a ton!! i do miss you guys but i know i am right where i need to be!! i realize the importance of missionary work every day. i cant imagine the happiness that comes when you baptize someone and you know you were able to help out them for eternity!! 

next time i talk to you guys i will be in chile!! love you tons!!
