Bien hola everybody! Behind the gospel, Spanish is pretty much my favorite thing ever! To be able to preach the gospel in this amazing idioma is such a great blessing that I, and I´m sure my brother, can attest to. 

Ciudad de Mexico has the best weather and the nicest people that I have ever seen! I guess I haven´t really met a lot of people but the ones that I have are stupendous! If you know a bit of Spanish and say something to the nice people in the Comedor, they give you a little extra and I make good use of that:) 

My first Zone Leader left yesterday and it was incredible to me to see how quickly this gospel can bring people together because it was a hard thing to say goodbye to him! His spirit and experiences for the past three weeks have really been a testimony builder for me.

My best story for the week goes like this. My companion and I were teaching a lesson to our teacher/investigator and we were able to invite another missionary in our district to be a "member" for practice with that aspect of teaching. There was a point where he started bearing his testimony and so I grabbed my water bottle and started drinking when he asked me how to say something really weird in Spanish and I lost it and started laughing. I was still drinking so I kinda got some water in my nose and it came out real quick! I ended up spraying it on my companion instead of the investigator and the member and I thought it was so funny. So we laughed uncontrollably for like 3 minutes and the investigator had to try really hard not to laugh but my companion just ignored me and kept teaching which was even funnier. 

Life is super awesome here and I promise that I don't drive the spirit away like that on purpose! The spirit is actually my constant companion here and I couldn't be more grateful for the Lord´s blessings for me as a missionary!

You are all in my prayers and I wish you the best of everything! Please don´t forget Gods love in your lives because it is everywhere.
I love letters and emails so please write to me   I leave the MTC on Aug 31st.
