Going into week 2
Ok I want to get a couple of things out of the way first off. 1) My
enter button is broken, so just get over it. 2) Use to
send me letters. 3) If you send me a package write HERMANA on it to
make it get here easier. Hermano Dubon who's incharge of the physical
workings of the MTC here said that the mail people are less likely to
go through my stuff if it says Hermana on it because then they know it
doesnt have drugs or anything in it because we're from the church. 4)
Ive noticed letters take about a week. So keep that in mind for when I
get closer to heading out to the field. ANNNYYYWAAYYY. The MTC is
good. I dont ever remember what I said in my last email, so sorry if I
repeat stuff. Its tiny here though! Compared to Provo! BUT TOMORROW WE
GET TO GO TO THE MARKETPLACE FOR PDAY! I'm so excited to get to get
out of here for the afternoon. Itll be great. Things are good though.
Turns out our investigator was fake. Which I shouldve known because
thats how they do it at Provo. But I was still surprised. He's our
night teacher now, so its pretty wierd that hes the one teaching us
now. I was way sad and confused at first, but he's been teaching us so
much! This is some hard stuff though. All these girls crammed in tiny
rooms and bathrooms? It does wierd stuff to ya. My companion drives me
buts, but I'm learning to be patient and have Christlike love for her.
I think thats what I needed to learn most, so shes here to teach it to
me. We also went the the CRE (not CRAY) house this week. That was for
sure a humbling experience. I have a long way to go and a lot of
spanish to learn. If anything it taught me to really rely on the Lord
more than I have been and more than I ever have in the past. That was
a harsh realization, but good. Last night we watched a broadcast from
Elder Holland speaking to the missionaries in the Provo MTC in January
of this year. It was amazing. I know we're probably not supposed to
pick favorites, but hes mine. My favorite thing he said was "I command
you to come home with atleast one convert, and it better be you!" So
awesome. Thats what I want to focus on while I'm here. I cant teach
it, if I dont have it so deep in my soul that its literally a part of
me. Hmmmm what else? I missed you so much yesterday DAD!!!!
Especaillay on Sundays, we listen to so many spiritually powerful men
and I always think of you and how much I look up to you! You are the
best, and I love you so much. Thank you for everything you have done
and continue to do for our family. LOVE YOU ALL! SEND ME LETTERS AND
EMAILS! THE CHURCH IS TRUE. Thats all that matters. -Hermana Ludlow
