So I'll start by telling you a funny dutch story of the week. So our teachers also play the role of our investigators to practice teaching to (they act as people from their mission) and apparently our whole class had been messing up the word for God and Gutter. So we had been telling him how important gutters are and how much we love them. :)
Second, a funny story about my companion. I discovered Elder Leishman doesn't like to finish all his food! So he leaves one bite left of everything because "if I ate it all it would be gone and then i would be sad" haha
Mom can you put Alma 26:12 on my plaque. Its a great scripture reminding us that we need to be humble and that we get our strength from God. Its so true! I also finished all of Alma and Helaman in 4 days!
So I've found a new thing I love at the MTC, talking to the real investigators. There are real investigators that walk around the MTC grounds that we can talk to. Me and my companion met one last week and she just kept asking questions she has had after other missionary lessons or just things shes been wondering. We have talked with her a few times now, so we have gotten to know her well. And the best part: we get to talk to her in English!
Last night we heard from sister Linda Burton the General Relief Society President. She had a good talk, but the best part was the district meeting afterwards. We all shared testimonies, thoughts, and feelings and opened up to each other in a cool way. The spirit was so strong during it! Love the MTC! The language is definitely starting to come. The gift of tongues is real! My testimony is growing so much!
Love the Girl's letters and emails! love them so much! Love you all!
