This has been a super crazy week! I finally left the MTC thank goodness haha! I am grateful for the opportunity that I had to be there and to learn. It has really helped me out. I started off my day yesterday at 2:30 am in the morning! I got about an hour of sleep because, everyone one in the zone was leaving so I had to say good bye to them. I made a lot of really good friends there, and I will remember every single one of them for the rest of my life.
So when I got here, I had a bunch of meetings with the mission presidency and stuff, and then I got my companion. His name is Elder Barrett and he is from Alpine, UT (Lone Peak HS). He is a really good guy and he is really good at Spanish. We listen to the Spanish radio in the car and listen to the commercials to see if I can understand what they are saying. Not gonna lie its pretty helpful. I haven't talked with any investigators yet, but we where going to go to a members house yesterday but they weren't home. Elder Barrett said the people are really cool and I am really excited to meet them!
President Drake said one of the first things we had to do was talk to someone and invite them to be baptized. Well I talked to some lady that said her family was a part of the church and she didn't want to do anything with our church! But we talked about how her family was involved with the floods in Baton Rouge and I said we will pray for you and your family. She said "Thats really nice of you but you can't convert me!" And I said maybe not but I will try! And she said try you will and walked off. So thats how my day has been going so far haha!
So Ya I am here in Port Arthur with my companion Elder Barrett, and we are doing great! I love you all and will talk to you next week! Be expecting an email on Monday. That is my P-Day!
