Last week in the MTC

Subject: My last few days of warm showers

Well everyone! this is the email weve all been waiting for! (okay so its the one I've been waiting for.  This is the last letter from the MTC!!!!! In 5 short days Ill be on my way in a five hour bus ride with about 30 other missionaries on my way to Quetzaltenango and I could not be more esxcited!!!! I will miss the food, the pastries from the little pasty man, my companions, my teachers, the preident and his wife, my district, clean water, warm showers, but I am ready to go and begin the work!! By the way, I may not be able to write next week unless my mission presidents allow me to when I arrive next Tuesday, so dont miss me too much!

So for our Pday we went to the giant relief guatemala map which is a 3d to scale map of Guatemala! I am stoked that there is a volcano so I can go roast some marshmallows; it will be great! Then we went to a giant market in the middle of zona 1 and it was amazing! So many amazing things that people make here. I oved it!!! then we got back and had a volleyball tournament, too bad im not very good at volleyball (the bruises on my wrist are proof of my lack of skill).

Some of you may wonder how the spanish is coming along? Well a teacher told me my spanish is cute because the grammer is equivalent to a three year old so I have that going for me!!! haha  I'm working hard on it. 

The next day was probably the craziest day at the MTC! 30 new nortes came (one was my good friend from school hermana Cornelison so its been really fun having her here!) so they got our classrooms and becasue my district is the smallest (8 people, one elder went home because of medical issues) they decided to give us the cafeteria for our class, but people are always in there so we are called the nomads because we have class in about five differed places every day!

In other news. my bug bites I received have been upgraded, they went from dime sized to quarter sized. The Guatemalan bugs just love me here, lets hope the people do to!

Shout out to Presidente and Hermana Cox for inviting me and my companions up for chocolate chip cookies because i tthink we are their favorite. You wouldnt know by the way he comments about my lacck of volleyball skills, but they are pretty great!

I came on a mission because this church has brought me the most happiness in my life and I want other people to feel that happiness. But theres another reason. Because of my faith in the Book of Moromon. Its another testament of Christ and a record of Ancient American people. It is a volume of holy scripture that coincides with the bible and happened during Christs lifetime. Christ did visit the Americas, and I am so lucky to be in the area where it all happened. The book of mormon provides the fullness fo the Gospel and guidance of life. Everyone can come to know the truth of Christ through it. It promises neverending  happiness and inexpressible joy, and it blesses families! I know that and I can't wait to share it with the world and help people come closer to Christ! I have seen the blessings in my own life and its true.
Love ya all and talk to ya in Quetzaltenango!!!!
