Hola familia y amigos,
Another exciting week at the MTC, it feels weird that I've only been here for 2 weeks. The days are getting shorter too, which is good, well actually we still have 16 hour days but whatever. Anyways, we finished our first "investigator" on like Friday or something who actually turned out to be one of our teachers and we committed him to baptism, so 1 for 1. It's kind of weird teaching someone who you already know is a member of the church, but at least it's good practice. I feel like my Spanish is coming along pretty good too, I'd say I can understand like 75% of what the teachers are saying in class. But anywhere else it's like 25%. There's are these 2 people in my district who have had like 5 years of Spanish or something, and they are like basically fluent already, and I'm like what are you doing here, I think they might get bumped up to the 3 week program er whatever. I'm pretty sure I'll get bumped up too :). The Mexico MTC is pretty cool, I guess it's the 2nd largest MTC in the world they said it can hold like 1200 missionaries or something, and I think there are about 400 or so missionaries here right now, it's pretty big there's like 25 buildings and like 50 casa's and 1 dormitory, we are in a casa there's 5 rooms, 4 elders or sisters to a room. Everyday is pretty much the same, I have to wake up at 6 since we only have one shower and 4 of us have to use it, we go to breakfast at 7, have personal study time for an hour, language study for like 4 hours, lunch for like 45 minutes, language study again for an hour, gym time for an hour, tall which is like a computer program that helps you learn the language, but the computers are awful so it takes like half the time just for the computer to load, then we have some more study, dinner, sometimes we have an investigator, and then more study. then we are supposed to go back at 9:30 and be asleep at 10:30. A lot of people like to whine about the schedule a lot, but I think it's pretty fun. The food gets worse everyday, and every time they serve american food I get diariah. Also some fun facts about my mission Aguascalientes, me, Elder Jordan, and Elder Smith are going to Aguascalientes, we're like the only people in the MTC that are going there, apparently it's like a tourist attraction for Mexicans and it's super hot, also apparently the church is pretty strong there, I think it's mostly wards. Anyways that's about it, I hope everyone had a good week. If I don't reply sorry, there's like no time to write here, but I can still read your emails and I would still love to hear from you. Also, I don't know where I heard this but it's pretty good "you can give a man a fish and feed him for a meal, or you can teach a man to fish and feed him for  a lifetime". I would like to invite everyone to turn outward rather then inward when faced with challenges and difficulties, serve Him not yourself.
