So I went to the temple this morning which was a lot of fun. But it´s hard to pay attention when you’re half asleep.
I loving the MTC, but I really want to leave and be out in the field. We do 2 lessons a day and we go to the park every saturday and talk with real people and have real conversations, but there is so much I need to learn.
There hasn`t been a whole lot going on here in the MTC life, but I´ll do my best. Last saturday we went to the park and my new companion was Elder Brog. We talked with only 4 people. On the metro to the park we talked to this Philippine lady who spoke English, got to the park and talked to another Philippine lady for 1-1/2 hours. She was a blast to talk to because she was so receptive to the spirit, and she spoke English so that was fun. On the ride back we met a man on the metro who was a member and was going to the temple. So yeah that´s the park.
On sunday we had a great day. We had sacrament, a devotional with president lovell (who is such a nice guy. I love being here at THis mtc because we see all of the missionaries and know most of them by name. We get to talk to our president every day. I love it here.) And at night we had a guest speaker. Actually it was speakers. It was a family who became members years ago and raised a wonderful family. It´s nice to see that what we do out here truly makes a difference.
THis week has been same old classroom work and studying. One cool thing this week was that the native Russian speakers left after being here for two weeks and 6 new native Italian speakers came in. this makes me want to go!!!!
So yeah, nothing much happened this week. Oh, by the way don´t send me any more letters by snail mail because I´ll be gone by the time they get here. Also dad, your dear elder doesn´t work here very well because they mail it from Provo and it took a week to get here. Also, mom the picture on the card was a picture of the round-about where the city of Madrid celebrates when Real Madrid wins. Sorry for no pictures this week because when the pictures load, it really slows down the computers and I start typing double.
I love you all and pray for you guys every day. Sorry, but I need to go. Today I´m going to a museum for p-day! I´ll send some pics next week.
Love Elder Gonzalez
