This week at the MTC I had a wonderful time. We are learning to teach
lessons to investigators in full Spanish. We've been trying to teach in
Spanish since the beginning but we've know more of what we're doing now.
It's difficult but not to bad. The "investigator" we taught last week
was actually our homeroom teacher. His name is Elder Thorsen. He served
in Costa Rica too and actually served under the same mission president.
Another funny thing is that one of the new teacher's name is Brother
Avila. If you remember the Avila family from back in Virginia Mom and
Dad then you won't be disappointed. This is the same Avila that is 5ish
years older than me. It was quite funny because I don't remember him
much but he remembered me. The sisters going to Mexico in our District
is actually in Vegas right now getting VISAs. Apparently when you're
going to Costa Rica you don't need a VISA so I won't be doing that. One
last thing then I have to go: The older Elders in our Zone just left so
they passed down about 7 boxes full of things that have been passed
down, mostly snacks, and almost left us without a zone leader. I say
almost because the day before they left Elder Miller and I were called
to be the new Zone leaders. It's really cool and not too difficult yet,
but I haven't read the handbook yet because I've been so busy.
