Week 7?

Well I don't have much to say. But exciting news! I got my Travel Plans! Heres the game plan:

Depart from SLC on Dec 6 at 12:00pm.
Arrive at Atlanta GA international around 5:30 pm.
Depart from Atlanta at 7:30pm to Buenos Aires.
Arrive at Buenos Aires 7:30 am (12 hour flight haha).

Here's a kicker.

January 17: fly from Buenos Aires to Miami, Flordia.
No idea why, but most likely to pick up my Visa.


To answer some questions from Sister Hokanson:

My favorite thing to eat is definitely breakfast. Eggs are good even if they're fake (liquid stuff). The ham is awesome. There's ice cream bars. Lunch I like wraps (which is basically a subway with tortillas). All kinds of cereal as much as you want. During PE I usually play volleyball. I play spiking positions :) I learned so many things from the Devotionals. When all the Apostles came to talk to us, they ALL said before their talks, to right down in our study journals our THOUGHTS and FEELINGS of their talks, not actual notes on what they say. Which I found interesting. I leave in less than two weeks and can't wait!! Steven will more than likely be in my zone! Like a 90% chance! Next Wednesday will be my last guarenteed email to this blog and I have no idea how much time or when I can do it in the field. Thanks for reading and until then!

Week 6

I really don't have anything excited to say this week. I just want to thank you Sister Hokanson for all your help and charity to support me. I also extend it to everyone in the ward! This week basically the same. I have 2 - 3 weeks left and I'm so anxious to get out of here! My posts probably won't get exciting until I'm actually in the field. So thanks once again!

Week 5 or 6?

There really isn't much left to talk about. Yesterday was my first time teaching a full lesson in Spanish. We flopped a bit but we are constantly told, the gift of tongues doesn't come if you don't struggle in the language. Another district from my zone (hallway basically) is leaving next week and we don't get a new one, so our zone is shrinking a ton. The weather is finally getting cold and it snows frequently, but not a lot of sticking yet. I got the newsletter from the ward and I loved reading about everyone else! It's so cool how we can all get word from each missionary from the ward! You are definitely the best ward ever (and not just because the ward missionaries say so). They started decorating the MTC with Xmas stuff. Only other highlight is that for the fourth week in a row, we got an Apostle to speak to us. This week is was Elder Bednar. He gave a great talk about The Answer is the Doctrine. And for whoever reads this that is coming to the MTC later. When you get in your rooms, check all your fixtures, vents, and any kind of compartments in your room. The previous tenants always leave stuff like toys and ties and candy and cool stuff like that. We had a scavenger party our first night and found so much. Well that's it for now.

Til next week

Week 4 or 5?

This one will probably be short. I had to type a letter for a friend who just left for the Dominican Republic MTC and I typed his letter to him. Well bascaiiy lthe routine is all the same. Study study study eat study eat study study eat sleep. But something super crazy. For the third week in a row, an apostle came to the MTc to talk during Tuesday's Devotional. M. Russell Ballard came and gave everyone a great talk on communicating. In latest news a member of my already diminishing district got moved to a more advanced spanish class. So my class (or district) consists of five people now. It's pretty silly. Also my zone is shrinking weekly. I'm having such a blast and learning so much. I got a new teacher which made me sad to see the old one leave but this new teacher is a stud. I'm getting along so well with my companions. I also managed to get them eat outside a few times, which is DA BOMB. The weather is so beautiful and the MTC is right near some awesome mountains with snow all along the peaks. I played soccer last monday night and I dominated ahaha! It was crazy fun. I started gaining a few pounds from the unlimited food so I started going back to what I normally ate before I came here and started running at the beginning of every gym period so now I'm getting back down to my normal weight. Basically theres candy and garbage food EVERYWHERE. Every missionary in the building gets packages and goodies from home and we're all sick of it so we just give it away but it's funny because they don't stop coming. Spanish is progressing along just fine. Next week I start teach full on lessons in Spanish. I actually found out some new missionaries that came in a couple weeks ago, a couple were going to Spain Maliga. Makes me think that Steven might actually be put in my zone either right before or right as I leave. I hope I get to see him for a few days. There's lots of people here who went to Argentina so I get to hear all about it and I get super excited whenever I learn something new. Well time is ticking and I can't think of what else to say. But basically I'm half way done and I leave for Argentina in a month! Thank you al for reading this and supporting me! Til' next week.
