week 2 feeling great!

hola todos!

holy cow i am so flustered when i write emails and letters because i cant ever remember what i did this morning, let alone last week!! THE DAYS ARE LONG BUT THE WEEKS FLY. thank you for the packages everyone! they save my life.

ready for some funny stories_ (sorry the question mark doesnt work this keyboard is crap) but okay here it is, soooo i didnt have an alarm clock so i bought one here,,, come to find out it TICKS SO LOUD AT NIGHT so the next morning i took it to go throw it away before class and my companion had the best idea to hide it in the other districts room and set it to go off at random times so hahahaha the alarm clock is the best prank the MTC has ever seen. we still laugh all the time. i love mi companara! shes so cute. every night we jam out to the lower lights and eat pumpkin bread. alsoooooo shes the best singer ever and is teaching me how to read music so choir practice this week was really fun! ahhhh i love her. the MTC IS THE BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD. the food is still gross. thank you for the almonds mom! send more snacks please! nate just told me that i needed to enjoy the food because the food in the field is 1000x worse sooo i might die in Mexico -____- 

hmmm what else! well sundays and tuesdays are my favorite days! we get to go up to main campus for devotionals. we walk and it takes like 20 minutes and its freezing but its so so fun!

classes are getting better! i am learning so much. i can pray bear my testimony and teach parts of a lesson in spanish! we teach almost everyday now and i get anxiety every time but they're getting better and better! i didn't even use notes last time! the gift of tongues is real. however you have to put in so much hard work to receive it. we study so much every day and when were not in class we have a ring of flashcards that we stick to our skirts to practice. i really do love it here! its freezing but part of me doesn't ever want to leave the mtc. best place on earth!! 

i am so thankful that i chose to serve a mission. its hard at times but so worth it! i love my other teacher Hermano Cuadra tooo! hes the best!!!!!!!!! gosh i love and miss you all. mitch and jake dont be shy to write more than two sentences hahahahaha. holy cow tell me how halloween goes and mitch send me screenshots of monstermash pictures! 

was there a utah game_ there was a byu game and there were people everywhere. if i come home and want to go to byu don't let me hahahahha I LOVE YOU GUYS! best family ever. i miss you! im always praying for you!

The first P-DAY letter


I LOVE THE MTC SO MUCH. best please in the world. i love my companion. she's my best friend.
we laugh ALLLLL the time. the MTC is one big party, with a lot of learning, studying, and reading. i just love it all! 

i wake up every morning at 6:15 so i can have enough time to get ready (who's shocked or screaming?) then we have personal study at 7 (which i live for!!!!! best time of the day. the BOM is so true) then we eat breakfast, laugh, study, language study, lunch, study, language study, exercise, dinner, LANGUAGE CLASS (tied for the best part of the day) and then go back to our apartments and get ready for bed! YES APARTMENTS. we are living the good life over in west campus. at first i was a little mad that we aren't really apart of the MTC but i LOVE IT. it's a true testimony of how much heavenly father KNOWS me. my companion and i have a huge room (im on top bunk lol) closet and bathroom! i love it. we also walk everywhere so basically i have chills 24/7 because its so cold but also because the spirit is so strong, i love it here!!!!!

i know that i wouldn't be able to go throughout my day if it werent for the spirit to guide me and help me to wake up happy and be happy throughout my day. holy cow what else. i am learning so much spanish! i have taught two lessons, and surprisingly one went really well and the other i could barely get words out. we are teaching again tonight and i am so excited! i love my spanish teacher. he only talks in spanish and i can finally mostly understand what he is saying. hes the best ever! hes hilarious. i am always laughing here!!!!!!! 

sunday was the best day so far. HOLY COW. go watch the character of christ. it's the movie we watched on sunday and it was the best thing i have ever seen. i cried! oh and also my companion loves to sing so she made me go to choir practice on sunday and holy cow i dont know why i havent been singing my whole life hahaha. im born to sing. I JUST LOVE THE MTC.

 ive never been happier. i am writing a big letter today too for our family and a few others. i wish i had hours and hours to write and email! there is so much to say. i cant picture my life without being here, the days are long but the weeks are short! i feel like i got here yesterday. oh my gosh everything is so great. well except for the food! MOM. please send me almonds, and any other healthy snacks! i can't eat the food. i have been eating salad, soup, apples and PB and that's about it. except for ice cream hahahaha! but don't worry i'm not getting fat because my companion loves to run! we run every day. sooooo FOOOD por favor. 

gosh what else? here's a funny story! we have these dividers in our classroom so we dont get distracted and i left a pile of things over by the divider and i was reaching over to grab them and put my hand against the divider and KNOCKED THE WALL OVER IN THE MIDDLE OF CLASS. i screamed hahahahahaha. so i am the same person lol. 

i just love all of you guys so much. i miss you all so much but luckily i'm not homesick. my companion has been keeping me soo strong. i love her! BLESSING. okay i am sending pictures. a lot of pictures hopefully. i love all of you so much! thank you for all that you do. i did my laudry at 5:45 this morning and realized how much you do for me mom. you're the best ever. i am sorry im the worst typer. i love you. my letter will be better and more detailed. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

She's alive!...and HaPpY!! Our first letter...

Hola familia!!!

HOLY COW.  What more can I say than I LOVE THE MTC.  I'm not kidding.  It's only my first night but I've never been happier.  The only time I've cried is when I read the sweet letter you put in my suitcase.  Other than that I'm tear free!!!

I LOVE my companion.  She is perfect.  She's from Gilbert Arizona!  She is so cute.  I saw her from a distance when we gathered as new members and noticed her nametag and wanted to scream!

We are also the missionaries that are in the raintree apartments, so I have a huge room/closet with Hermana Smith and the other Hermanas are outside the door and we share a bathroom (way better than the main campus) and we have a couch, oven, freezer, and fridge!  LUCKY ME!!  I love it here!

Also there is a small creamery here by the apartments that we can go to on P-days, which is Wednesday btw, so I will always think of our fun lunch before we said goodbye!

I love you all more than you know.  I miss you, but it's a different kind of miss.

I love you all!
