June 30 2014

So the other morning my companion informed me that ata 2:30 in the morning she woke up and hear me talking in my sleep... in Spanish! That's got to be a stepping stone, right? Well maybe not, but I was happy to hear that even my subconcious is trying to learn and speak this crazy language. I definitely feel that my Spanish has improved tremendously in this past 3 weeks and that I will continue to improve in these next 3 weeks I've got left with my companion.

   The Elder's in our district had a wedding and a baptism in the same day this week and it was quite the event. Aparently they are their "golden investigators", but it was a little bit weird seeing that he was 32ish and she was in her mid or late 60's.... but the important part is that 2 more souls have found their way to the gate and we have helped add to the kingdom of God. My other bit of exciting news is that this week one of the members of the rama taught my companion and me how to make Arroz con Leche (I think this is called Rice Pudding) and it was absolutely delicious. Not something that I think I would have liked very much before my mission, but now I think it is delicious!

   This week went by so fast and unfortunately I don't have much more to say. We've been having a bit of a slow time, because we can't find many new investigators in this time. But everyday we still get up, do our studies, and head out again to try and find those chosen of God in this time. The mission isn't about how many investigators you have or how many of them yoiu baptize, it's about finding people that you can love with all your heart after knowing them for only a short period of time and trying to help them find their way back to Christ. Once I realized this my mission became so much easier and I had more of a desire to find and teach and love the people here.

   I love you all.
