Well, let me tell it to you straight. Missions are not easy. But they aren't supposed to be. This week has been such a big learning experience. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED! One hour is not long enough to say everything.
I'll start with Dad's questions this week.
How is the Spanish coming along?
Spanish is hard, but I'm doing pretty good at it. We taught a lesson to a real investigator this week...good thing we had a real teacher there to teach most of the lesson, too! My favorite part of the lesson was reciting the First Vision in Spanish. I memorized it earlier in the week and it was really neat to say it with the Spirit. Afterwards, our investigator said that she felt tingle-y (alright...that's a made up word...who knows how to spell it?) But slowly I am able to say more and more things and think in Spanish more. It is hard to measure progress when so often what you see is the mountain of things to learn ahead of you. But I am not discouraged about it! I am excited about the challenge and I know that I am learning so that I can speak to God's children and so He will help me. I am excited about the end goal, and not caught up in the temporary, discouraging moments.
