March 18, 2013
Wassgoood family and peeps! 
I had a great week last week continuing to transition into the MTC. Each day it kind of seems like a jail dream haha, cause we just stay in this gated area doing the same thing over and over everyday. But the thing is, i love it! The spirit continues to fill the halls and everywhere we go. Every class, devotional, personal time, testimony grows exceedingly. Im so happy to be here. My district is pretty freaking awesome!! We always have a good time and we're always making each other laugh. Some of the kids in my district are just like kids i would chill with at home. We just make funny(righteous) jokes haha, and we just laugh all day. Elder Doman, my companion, is the funniest kid i know. At the beginning of the mission i thought he was the shyest guy and we wouldnt be able to get work done...but now i am so grateful he is my companion. We just have our own little jokes and handshakes..other companion pairs always confused and ask us how me and Elder Doman get along so well, or are you sure you guys didnt know each other before this? haha its ballin. But funny story, my teach Brother Hendrickson is a cool the other day i wrote him a note telling him that he needed to call Keilani or add her on facebook and take her on a date. hahah so keilani if he gets too shy, just look him up on fb. his names matthew hendrickson. He's a solid dude. 
Ever since we began learning the language we began teaching a 'fake' investigator. His name is Gregorio. And it was so cool cause me and Elder Doman we're able to get him to convert to baptism this past week. Theres nothing like the feeling of when someone truly believes what the spirit is telling them and wants to be baptized for there self. Gregorio is now my districts teacher along with Brother Hendrickson. Gregorio's real name is Creighton Hardy....keilani...IM HOOKING YOU UP!! I am very blessed with the teachers i got and the kids in my district!
We have devotionals every Sunday and Tuesday night which are way fun. We haven't had any Apostles yet but we've had a few elders from the quorum of the seventy. Its exciting to hear from people that are constantly with the Apostles and The Prophet. 
The language is coming a long slowly...but surely. I am able to carry on a conversation alright, if they talk REAL slow. Haha but it is getting better, just need to keep the word Patience in the back of my head. 
Plus mom you dont need to send my running shoes when i get to Mexico. I have my basketball shoes and those work great:) and it actually ended up being my foot that i sprained last week, but its doing great and its healing so fast. I know the Lord is really blessing me to prepare for his work because throughout high school and stuff i never had injuries like this heal SO fast! Plus i was getting a bit sick this past week with a cold, and it went away over night. Its crazy to think how much he truly cares about his missionaries. 
And....when i get to mexico and you want to send a package. *MAKE SURE* you put like pictures of christ or very religiious stuff on the box because the mexicans steal things a lot but if they see sacred stuff on it they wont touch it. Just for a heads up. 
I got an email from my mission president this week and he told me and can now email family AND friends. So pretty much whoever haha. Its way cool! So mom if you can get on my facebook and just like post that anyone can email me if they want. But Dear Elder is also really nice cause theres nothing like gettings letters during the week. It just makes you smile and have a big smile on your face haha. 
Mom Dad Nate Morgan Jared and Keilani, i love you guys! hope you're all doing well and write me a Dear Elder :) ps Nate and Morgan, get pregnant 9 months before i come home. No sooner!! haha
Talk to you next week!

Testimony: Yo se que por el oportunidad a ser en un mision. Yo se que Jesucristo es nos el Salvador. El libro de Mormon es the verdadero palabra de Dios. Estoy por mi familia y amigos. En el nombre de Jesucristo, Amen.
