HEY EVERYONE!!!! HOLA DE LA CCM (or MTC) EN MEXICO. So lets see guys for starters this week has gone by soooo much faster than the first week so thats comforting haha. I hear that as the more weeks go by the faster the weeks go and im already beginning to attest to that! Here in Mexico City we havent been doing anything too exciting just espaƱol day in and day out (its coming slowly but steadily), teaching lessons with our "investigators" everyday and it's getting easier and easier so theres hope for me yet. I think my whole district and I expect too much of ourselves because we all get so frustrated that we dont just know spanish yet but we have to look back and's been 2 weeks hahaha.

My district is all super close and for those of you that dont know what a district is, its a group of about 4-5 missionary companionships and we're all preparing to serve our missions in the Chile Santiago North Mission so thats pretty cool we´ll all be on the same flight and everything as we cross the equator on our dreary like 13 hour flight haha but we still have several weeks before that happens. 

This week we´ve just really been getting into the routine of things (wake up 6:30 am, language study 7 am, breakfast 7:30, personal study from 8-9, language/how to be a missionary stuff from 9-12, lunch at 12:30, Gym time from 1:30-2:30, teaching our fake "investigators" from 3-5, more studying, Dinner at 6:30, TALL (like a rosetta stone kind of program) from 7-8, from 8-9 independent language study and then from 9-9:30 we have a planning session then at 9:30 we retire to our rooms and then repeat.) Its kind of repetitive but extremely efficient so when i get home im gunna be like the most efficient 20 year old in the world hahaha. 

We had the opportunity to go to the Mexico City Temple today and it was absolutely beautiful!!!! It´s so awesome that all the same things and rituals that we perform in the Church take place the same all across the world in their respective languages. The Gospel of Jesus Christ really is for everyone and everyone should have the opportunity to hear it and feel the happiness and joy that it can cause into the lives of so many people around the world. I testify that this Gospel is true, i testify that it is meant to bless families and to better the lives of everyone it comes in contact with. Im so grateful to have that comfort and that happiness within my own family and within my home. Having this opportunity to share that happiness with the people i come in contact with in Chile for the next 2 years is just a miniscule way that im able to repay the Lord and the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the impact that it has had on my family which I love with all my heart. I LOVE YOU DAD, MOMMA, KENNEDY, CADEN, AND KAMI AND OF COURSE THE REST OF MY FAMILY (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE)!!!❤  AND A BIG SHOUT OUT TO MY BEAUTIFUL, SELFLESS, LOVING MOTHER HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA YOU DONT LOOK A DAY OVER 25!
