I just received a new native companion. This is what I have been praying for to help me with the language. My Spanish is going to get a lot better! his name is Elder Torres and he is from Mexico City. He speaks a little English so I am going to help him with that and he is going to help me with Spanish. It’s going to be hard, but that’s the only way I can grow. When I Skype with the family in December I will be able to speak with you in Spanish.
I love my mission. I love this Gospel and I love the Atonement!
Dad, thank you for sharing with me your experiences from your mission; they have helped me a lot! The mission is really hard and the biggest thing is just learning how to adapt because everything is always changing, but the nice thing is the gospel always stays the same. I am learning how to rely and focus everything on the Lord because I know that without Him and His love I am nothing. I have never felt His love or needed it more in my life than I do right now.
Well, like Keith says, read the Book of Mormon and go to the temple.”
Love you all
