Hey what's up family?
Handshake because thats what you do.
Alright so I also saw sister erickson a little bit jealous that she's leaving tomorrow, but hey it's all good one set of english missionaries down 3 more to go!! Woot Woot!! Love ya oh side comment an elder told me that I looked like snow white in this outfit... I was like-Okay elder okay haha
So this best week at the MTC. It's really just class, and its repeating over and over again. Which is good, but it's so hard sometimes to be in the same classroom for like 12 hours everyday. Luckly this week we get to do companion study outside though. Seriously that is going to be a game changer!

We taught our investigator this past week. Most of the lessons went good, and then... We taught about Joseph Smith and he wanted to know why his church isn't the true church and why god said there were no true churches on the earth. Well, I was just so confused at that point because I didn't even know. He asked that question because the lesson was all in Khami. So I seriously just sat there. Luckly Sister Collins tried to explain, and then we pulled out the scriptures to JSH and shared that with him. Yeah, so that made it a little better, but after that lesson I was super frustrated with myself, and not being able to understand or even say anything because this lesson is just so darn difficult, but after that lesson we just moved past it and focused on the next day. Which went really well we taught on the plan of salvation. It went good, and though it was our last time teaching Om Bon he did commit to bring his family to church so score! Yeah Om! Then did an overview of all of our lessons, and said that even though he felt confused in his mind, he had a quiet feeling in his heart. Which just testfies to me that even though this language is hard and frustrating with the Lord's help we can tough the hearts of the people we teach.
We had sister Edmunds talk to us on Sunday and she explained how the real problem with missionaries is when they think that they are the teacher. No, the holy ghost is the teacher. Which is so so true. You really just have to rely on the Lord with the language because there is no possible way that we could do it on our own, the lord has to carry us through it. In other new Om Bon is now our new teacher aka Lookkro Sorenson. Which was strange, and now our new investigator is Lookkro Garlik so that's pretty neat. So on wednesday we had to help with the new missionary orientation, and meet with the new missionaries and talk about rules and stuff. They seem like they are going to be really awesome Elders. On Sunday I ended up giving the talk on baptism, we all have to prepare a talk and then they pick someone random. I kind of knew it was going to be me, I was praying during the sacrament, and praying that the speakers would have the spirit with them when they talked and then I was like " oh shoot please bless me with the spirit when I talk" haha yeah I don't really remember what I said, I mean I was kind of prepared but yeah... I think it went okay.

The cafeteria food is okay, everything is kind of beginning to taste the same when I eat it but it's alright, for exercise we usually just run and do abs or something. I really don't like playing volleyball, because well you know you don't really get the whole team sport chemistry thing when you are playing at the MTC. For mom I really like my clark shoes they are probably my favorite surprise surprise right. I love that new shirt you got me probably my favorite one I have. Thanks for all of the packages they make my day every time I love hearing from all of you! The donuts were so good! We had a donut party the night that we got them! Pretty fun.
We all do choir on tuesday, and sunday nights it always good to get to know some new people and stuff. The spirit is always so strong here and even though it's hard and repetitive I know that I need to be here to learn this language, and I know that there are certain things about the gospel I need to know before I get there to. I feel like I'm growing everyday. As for all the other days of the week. It's really just class break class break class break. It get's a little tiresome sometimes it's all good though! The days are long, but the weeks are flying by. We did sealings at the temple today pretty neat! Never got to do those before. It's been all good here though just pressing on you know! haha no it's not bad I'm really grateful I have the MTC to prepare. I hope everything is going good down on your end!
Super happy for Tyson super cool for him! Tell Jess it's getting so close!!! Love that family! and tell Sethy to kick some trash at his golf tournaments the little stud! Love you guys can't wait to hear from you! Keep sending me the dear elders love them!! Yep everything is all good, sometimes I forget that I've only been here two weeks, so I shouldn't know the language yet, but it's hard to remember sometimes. Seriously everything is good! Love you guys thanks for everything!
