My Testimony Has Exploded!
At the Mexico City Temple Visitor Center
April 7, 2015
Well the sun is getting hotter and I am
getting ... more dead!We are talking
This week has been a good one!As it is my 11th week in the field, I was
the senior comp for the week and had to lead every lesson and every planning
session.I have to admit it was not my
most favorite thing in the world, but it was a good experience and was very
necessary because next week there’s a good chance I’ll be the senior comp in
this area!The whole experience was
very difficult and very demanding!I
was forced to use more Spanish and had to really do my very best to understand what
the investigators were saying so I could respond.All in all, I’m glad I did it and this week
is my last week in training!!!WooooHooooo!
Up north (U.S.) we celebrate Easter for
one day.Here ... it’s a week of
parties and crazy drunk people and water fights and every investigator being on
vacation, so you have no one to visit.Really it was a crazy week!Especially when our neighbors threw a party that started at 7pm and
ended at 8am.Our house was shaking
from the subs and me falling asleep that night was a miracle!When I woke at 6:30 the next morningthe house was still shaking.Crazy Mexicans!
The highlight this week, of course, was
General Conference!Holy cow was it
just me or did all of a sudden General Conference get amazing!I couldn’t soak it in fast enough.It was truly so amazing!One thing I think I’ve really learned on the
mission is how to listen because here if I don’t put 150% into trying to
understand these fast-talking Mexicans, Idon’t understand ... and so that has really boosted my listening skills
and man oh man I loved General Conference.One of the main things I think I learned was that it’s pretty much a
commandment to get married as fast as I can after the mission.HahaNo, butreally... Kinda
crazy!I loved every talk so much, but
of course I must admit that my favorite was probably Elder Holland!I couldn’t hold back the tears for that one!
In between the sessions on Saturday my
district went to an all-you-can-eat taco buffet (see pics) and let me tell you
I’ve never been so happy!WOW!I’m sorry, America, but really Taco Bell
just doesn’t cut it anymore!
The teaching was slow this week, but
I’ve improved a ton and my testimony has exploded!I can’t believe how fast time flies and how
powerful the Spirit is!I’m going
strong and my comp and I are gonna rock this last week together!
