The Book is Blue....

This week has been mad fast. I can't believe that it is already Tuesday again. It has been a good week. A tough week, but a good week. That Carlos dude, yeah he is our teacher now. We all "committed" him, and then after those lessons he walked in and told us that he will now be our teacher. And since he is legit from Mexico, his Spanish is crazy fast.

My district was talking about it and the MTC is no big secret. A lot of people ask what goes on behind closed doors. Studying. Studying is what does on behind closed doors. I saw Kade Worton (a friend from school) the other day and he is a lucky dog. Although he is going to India (yep.), he gets to speak English and therefore gets to teach people in English. I had a pretty humbling experience with the language yesterday. I felt that everything was going well with Spanish and then we had our first meeting with Manuel, our Carlos teacher's other character. I could not figure out how to say anything. It was so frustrating. I know that the Lord was giving me a humility lesson, but boy was it annoying. Elder Yarro, a funny dude in our residency hall, said that whenever you get feeling good about something, BOOM! Heavenly Father keeps you in check.

Speaking of residency halls... We got kicked out. Ha, no we just had to move because they are going to renovate our old building. The Cage is no exception to the Utah rule of Thumb: Under Construction. This place is one of a kind.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland came to speak with us last Tuesday. That was a crazy cool thing. He said so much to us. We are missionaries in the Last Dispensation; there will be no other apostasies in our time. Our work needs to be done. He also told us that we don't have the right to give up. Too many people have sacrificed their time and even their lives for our church. This came 4 hours after that sister in New York was killed in the car accident. He then answered some questions that missionaries wrote for him. I don't have my notes with me, so I can't write them down for you, but it was a powerful experience. That man has so much humility, and so much love for his work. He did say that for 2 years we get to do work that is almost identical to the work that apostles do. So that's pretty dope.

My vocab is filled with all kinds of Spanish now. It is so hard not to type "y" instead of "and" and I say "chis pas" all the time (it's an exclamation that we don't entirely know what it means).

The book is blue and the Church is true. I wish I had more to say, but I don't.

I love you all and I hope you have great weeks.


P.S. Dad, can you send me some articles with pictures from the games like once a week?
