hola mi familia y amigos!
FIRST OFF HAPPPY BIRTHDAY TO CHANDLER, HAPPPY BIRTHDAY TO CHANNNNNDLER, HAPPPY
BIRTHDAY DEAR CHANDLER. HAPPY 17TH BIRTHDAY BIG BOY! (insert singing)
I can't believe I'm already on week three at the MTC! Ahhh so exciting.
I've never been so busy in my entire life. we study, study, and study some
more. spanish is coming along, slowly but it's coming. So I was thinking about
what to talk about and I decided that the number 4 has a big role in my stay
here at the MTC so far. I taught our first investigator Juanna 4 times..in
spanish... I eat 4 oranges a day which sounds really healthy but I also eat 4
cookies a day. The darn chocolate chip cookies here at my kryptonite! NO BUENO.
No wonder we're all going to gain 40 lbs by the time we leave. I have been hit
in the head/face 4 times by volleyballs in the last week, I have to change my
clothes 4 times a day. Not by choice. We joke that half the day we're changing
out clothes. I have 4 people in my room. We'll have two more join us next week
week though. The MTC is a very spiritual and special place and I love more
things about it everyday. I can't believe my stay here is halfway over! YAY! It
snowed this week..so i'm basically freezing since I only brought warm clothes
since i'm going to Arizona where it's ALREADY 96 degrees!!!! WOOO!! CAN'T WAIT.
We talk a lot about how to be effective teachers and our purpose. It made me
think a lot about why i'm here. I can 100% say that I am here to grow and and
be converted to the Lord. To do His Will. I'm here on His time. Doing His work.
What a truly special blessing. I'm also here to invite others to come unto to
Christ. Help them receive the blessings of the Atonement and be baptized. The
gospel blesses everyone's lives and EVERYONE has a universal need for Christ.
Let's just hope i'll be able to share that message in spanish in three weeks!
Thank you all for the letters and prayers! I can feel them help me each and
every day! I love you all and miss you like crazy!
UPWARD AND n
ONWARD- love, HMA Clark :) :) xoxo
