hello family! i leave for the mission home tomorrow! we just said goodbye to all of the missionaries going to missions other than guatemala and peru! I can hardly believe im actually going into the field this week. it feels scary and so exciting at the same time. my spanish definitely still needs so much work but i know it will come. i pray for el don de linguas (the gift of tongues) every night, and i say EVERY prayer in spanish. i hope i get a latina companion or one that is amazing at spanish! So i think the guatemala city north mission home isnt too far from here so i heard we may actually be coming back here to spend the night after we spend the day with the president. i am pretty sure the new president and his wife have already started their mission, so we are their first group of missionaries! (maybe that means they will like us the most :) anyway this week has been full of more hours of class and devotionals, we taught lessons, and i really really enjoyed teaching all of them. i love teaaching repentance and forgiveness and teaching anything about the atonement. mommy i have almost filled up my entire missionary gospel study journal. i LOVE it thank you so much for buying it! you can send another one if you want or i will just make another and make an index in the back. its perfect for preparing lessons the preach my gospel way because i can assess their need and then find scriptures and things that they need to hear really easily. i love you all so much and i hope all is well at home! maybe ill get to email more once im settled in my new area and with my new comp! the mission hojme address they gave us is the 5 degrees one. letters from the US have finally started arriving so some people are getting mail,. so it does get here thats good! i love you all sooooooo much. love you!
