HAPPY BIRFDAY MOM! :)
(we went for sushi to celebrate, thinking of you of course)
Well this was a super good week! Every week just keeps going by faster. It has been super hot here this week, but right now its raining so that's good. But its still hot. haha This week was super good, we had lots of success, and had tons of spiritual experiences. I was thinking the other day that this area has been the area that I have felt the spirit the most in. But it has definitely been the hardest area. With work and sacrifice we truly receive blessings. On Sunday the spirit was so strongly present in every lesson, it was really awesome. Me comp looked at me and was like, "How is it that you seem to make everyone we teach cry?" haha no, its most definitely not me, its the spirit. When we do whats right, and we look for it, the spirit really can be our constant companion. Cant imagine a life without it.
I'm very glad spring break season is over so everything can go back to normal for a while. All of our investigators are back, and we should be back in the groove of things this week. We are not gonna baptize until the 26 because this week we have stake conference, but oh well. On the 26 we will baptize Yolanda and Leonor. They are awesome. Every lesson has been so spiritual, and they really love us and the church. It is really nice every once and a while to have investigators that read, pray, go to church, because they really want to and not because we force them. They have been super prepared by the Lord and the 26 should be a great day. We have lots of other investigators, and put quite a few new baptismal dates this week. I want our investigator from Tremonton to progress so bad, so we are working with her.
Everything is going good with my comp. He's a good missionary. We are already in the 9th week of his training, and I still have to teach all the doctrine in the lessons, and reteach everything he teaches so that the people can understand. He brings the spirit, which is the most important, but we are still practicing and studying a ton so he can learn. But we get along good.
Today was a good day, we got up early, cleaned the house, did all we needed to do then went downtown. Of course we met up with Elder Rodriguez. My comp had never been to the Centro so we went to all the places that I've sent pics of before. We also went to Tepito. That's always fun. We ate sushi (I think the first time in my mission) and it was super good. (see pics) haha. And ya it was a good day.
Sounds like your week was great, hope Nixon had a great birthday. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mom tomorrow! I sent you off a letter today, but don't think it will quite get there in time, whoops. But oh well love you tons and hope you have a super awesome day. Dad, I also sent you a letter, so be looking for that :)
Well love you all, the gospel is true, have a great week!
Love Elder Elgan
