Week 23

Hey so ya we had emergency transfers today ahha. An elder is going home a week early and i think he kinda screwed everything up and tons of people got transferred so my comp left this morning and went to go train in a new area and i just received Elder Garcia my new comp from Honduras. I will send pics next week and you will see why i laugh when i see him hahahahaha. He is super funny and whatnot so i think it will be fun this transfer. 

This week i received a letter from the Morrison´s it was their Christmas card and it made me really happy. It sure was nice to see some familiar faces even though Ckev is still pretty ugly lol. Zack is asking me if we can come to his mission one pday so we can meet up but we can't. Maybe when our new president gets here he will let us because that would be really cool to see Zack out here. 

We had dinner yesterday with Hermano Hooker who has been a mission president and area seventy. He and his wife were so nice and spoke really good English. Haha they gave me a banana split and talked about really cool doctrine and whatnot and served us pachamanca(i think that's how its spelled) which was really good. 

Nothing much has happened this week. I am super nervous to be directing our area because it is absolutely huge and we don't have tons of investigators but we will see how it goes i hope we can find some new ones and the ones we do have can progress. 

I have really been struggling this week just trying to learn the lessons and what i could say in Spanish. It is really frustrating at times when things that i have been taught since i was 5, i cant even share with someone but i hope i will get there someday. I am just waiting for the time when i start enjoying this and time starts rolling by. Time goes fast but every day is a struggle. It does feel good to finally be under the 20 month mark though. 

I don't know if you guys know Jordan Larson the son of the dude that owns the sports academy but i was told he served here as well as Colton Pearson that i think went to SV as well. There seems to be a ton of people from Logan that have served here in this mish so that is pretty cool. 

Ya nothing much more to say only that i am struggling along everyday. Sometimes i look at all there is to learn and how much i need to grow and just get overwhelmed and idk where to start so there is that. Anyway, I will keep going on and keep struggling through! 

Much Love,

Elder Mortenson
