This week has flown by! We had all the new Elders come in yesterday and it's crazy to think that I was them a week ago! I have seen countless changes in myself and the other elders in my District. It literally is a spiritual meatgrinder here and its pretty tough. 6 or more hours of class everyday, service projects, teaching investigators and lots and lots of eating! 

Right now we are teaching Damitric who is so excited to learn more about the gospel. We invited him to be baptized in our first lesson and he accepted pretty readily. He is already praying and reading from the book of mormon and loves it! Our other Investigator is Ben Smith and he is much harder to teach! Its like teaching a brick wall haha. but we're making progress. 

Anyways I leave next Tuesday morning at 3:30am! We fly to Atlanta Georgia then to Oklahoma City. Should be interesting (: 

Elder Gonzalez (another Elder in my district) and I auditioned today for a musical number in the Sunday night devotional and we got it! Im playing the piano and he's singing! We are doing "I know that my Redeemer Lives." Super nervous but we'll do fine. 

I have an awesome companion and an awesome district. I'm so blessed to be here learning and teaching as a representative of Christ. I have come to learn that my purpose as a missionary is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. It's becoming a reality finally! 

Lots of Love from Provo
