Week 2

Happy Late Birthday Ben!

I’m feeling great this week. I’m loving teaching the lessions and I could use prayers for patience with learning Spanish.

I eat healthy and take my vitamins every morning and most nights.
Spiritually I’m doing great. The Spirit is everywhere here. Physically I’m doing awesome. We have time to exercise everyday and sometimes I go running in the morning with elder Martin (my district leader’s comp.). Emotionally I’m excited but tired as well – it’s hard work every day but it’s fun. Mentally I’m good. I’m always exhausted mentally at the end of the day but sleep, exercise, and listening to the Continuous Atonement by Brad Wilcox is refreshing. We only get to go to the temple twice in the MTC and I’m not likely to go ever in the field which makes me all the more grateful for it.
We got to go to the temple last week and it was amazing! Here are some pics.

Hey, sorry I didn’t email last Thursday, they said we could email every P-day which is Thursday but we didn’t get our first Thursday off.

I’m having an awesome time here and learning so much Spanish, I think I’ve learned more Spanish here in a week and a half than I did all school year.

The food is actually pretty good and there’s plenty of variety.

My comp. is awesome, his name is Elder Christopherson and he comes from California. He knows Spanish really well but has a speech impediment but I’m so proud of him for coming out here to teach anyways. Our district leader is Elder Davis, he’s great.

General conference was awesome, I especially like Dale G Renlund’s talk in which he made the rocket analogy about the priesthood.

I love you guys and miss you so much but I wouldn’t go home for a billion pesos, I know why I’m out here and am having some of the most fun I’ve ever had.

We get to go to the temple today and I’m super excited. thanks so much for the care packages and I cant wait to hear from and email you next week!

Sincerely,

Elder Goddard
