Honduras!!

Hola. I am here in Honduras finally! So the last day of the MTC was super boring. We just sat there and had a bunch of presentations. Funny story, the last day we were having to weigh bags to make sure they were good, and my companion was over by a total of 15 pounds. He had to leave a few things behind, but it was stuff like shampoo and mouthwash. Anyways, i had to leave the MTC at 3 in the morning to catch our flight to El Salvador, then we connected to San Pedro Sula. they were both about 40ish minutes long so it was really quick. When we first got here, the mission president was waiting for us to take us to the local stake center where we got a few talks about how everything works out here. Anyways after that, they sent us out in the city with one of the older missionaries to go talk to some people. I went out with Elder Lucha, and he is from El Salvador and doesnt speak any English. It was super funny trying to talk to him, and i am sure i sounded like a 2 year old. I thought i…

Last week emailing in the MTC!

Last pday in the MTC!!!!!!!!! It has been a really good experience here. I have learned so much and i can`t wait to go out into the field. I leave Tuesday morning for Honduras. I dont know what time yet but i am pretty sure it will be early. We had two videos on Sunday that were both really awesome. One was from Elder Holland and the other was from Elder Bednar.  They both really made me excited to go out to honduras and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 In our rooms we have fans and this week everyone was stealing everyone elses fan. Everyone at one point had 2 other rooms fans, and some rooms had 0 fans. 
My Spanish is continuing to make huge strides. I can express myself a lot more now.  I really like talking to all of the Latinos down here. They are all super funny. I can actually talk to them most of the time which is awesome. All of  my group of guys are ready to get out of here and actually start doing stuff. I am super excited to go to Honduras and start talking to people. i g…

Overview

So, it has been a super awesome week here in Guatemala City. The weather here has been kinda like Missouri. We just get a lot more rain, and it cools off more at night. Anyway, my Spanish has progressed the most it has since i have been here. It is super exciting. Sundays here are the best. We always have really good classes during the day. This last week we had a class about trials of faith. I really liked it because it applies to missionaries too. We have no idea how our mission is going to be, until we try our faith by starting it and continuing to do the right things. So remember last week how i said our teachers were going to change. We kept one and got a different one. The new one is a really good at teaching us Spanish, she is just a little strict. We also got a bunch of new missionaries this week. Most of them are from Utah, but of the ones i have talked to there are 3 from out east somewhere. The Utah kids had a funny experience on their way out here. Their pilot in SLC didnt…

Week 3

Well, this week has been awesome. I learned so much in a week, and not just in Spanish. We have been practicing lessons in spanish with other districts so much. It is crazy. I think they are changing our teachers today, which is kind of sad. I really liked both of my teachers. They are both from Guatemala, but they were super awesome. Well today, we got to go to Guatemala City Plaza, and it was super cool. We also walked through the oldest cathedral in Guatemala today. It was super big, but the outside was super dirty. We got to place books of mormon today, which kinda made me nervous, but it was super fun. People here are super friendly, and it was awesome talking to this one guy. We were talking to him for about 30 minutes. We found out he was from Quetzaltenango and he was visiting family. The other people we talked to were all super awesome. We also met a bunch of members today who were just walking around which was kinda weird. I bought this really cool tie in the market down the…
