Nov 17, 2016

Nov. 17, 2016This week was pretty eventful, I’ll start with last Thursday when we met Elder Rasband. We got on a bus and drove for like an hour into the east mission next to the ocean.  It took about an hour and we met up with all the other missionaries in the east mission. We met in this chapel and we waited for a while for Elder Rasband to arrive.  The moment he walked in you knew he wasn’t just a typical man.  When I went up to shake his hand I looked into his eyes and it was so weird I never had a similar impression from another human being.  We gave the best talk I’ve ever heard. The spirit was incredible I’ve never felt it so strong, he told us that every Tuesday morning all the apostles have a special prayer in Salt Lake just for missionaries!  It’s awesome to think about that. Near the end of his talk, when he bore his testimony, he would just say simple statements like “your heavenly father loves you” or “our prophet is called of god” or “your families will be blessed” and when he said these phrases I almost started balling the spirit was just like I’ve never felt before. On Saturday we went proselyting in the west my mission! I was sooooooo nervous for some reason, but things worked out. We gave away all our pass-along cards and we gave out a Book of Mormon. We got into a small bible bash with a catholic person; I wish I learned more about them before my mission. Two days ago, the other “three week” missionaries left including our only other gringo district, so our district had the entire MTC to ourselves for the night.  I didn’t realized I would have to say goodbye to some great friends every month or so from now on. It was actually really hard to say goodbye to some of the Latinos, there actually soooo hilarious. In one of my photos, I’m standing next to him next at the fountain his name is Elder Daniel and he doesn’t speak any English, but we always tell him to say stuff like “I go poo poo” it’s the best. Today I went to the temple again and I’m understanding more and more of the sessions. We just got new Latinos and gringo’s today. One is from eastern Canada but the rest are from Utah. I’m doing soooo well her I can honestly feel your prayers I love you guys

Oh something else, our whole district got sick for like a week and my companion cut open his finger really bad it was spraying blood, plus he almost broke his ankle like a week ago; he’s the funniest though, when it happened he just started laughing his head off like why does this happen to me; soooo funny. Our district is sooo close, last night I had to stay up till like 12 midnight to wait for the new missionaries to come in, I can’t believe I used to stay up that late.

There are so many moments in the day that I want to show you guys or tell you about I truly love it here I'm going to miss the MTC, I love you Guys.
