I´m also surprised at how well Spanish is coming along. I haven´t learned anything yet that I didn´t already know, but I´m able to have basic conversations, where I was unable to form a sentence fast enough before. All I can say, is that the Spirit definitely helps the missionaries. Also, I gave my first blessing of comfort last week, which was a really cool experience. I have learned so much this week that I didn´t know before, just from prayer to have personal strength, and realizing powerful things about myself, as well as realizing new things each day about the gospel. Tomorrow Elder Olsen and I are teaching a real person which is awesome!!! It´s a member of the church who volunteers to take lessons from missionaries at the CCM. Our lessons so far have been our teachers pretending to be investigators, but it has still provided awesome experiences. One of our last lessons was in the scenario of teaching a man who was only taking the lessons because his wife had cancer, and she wanted him to talk to the missionaries, because it would make her happy. he did not believe in God or religion, but he said he would pray with his wife, and we felt the Spirit so strong, when I asked him about his love for his family, and he said he loved them with all his heart. I told him that God exists, and loves us more than he could ever imagine loving his wife or kids. I know that God gives us the appropriate things to say, and that we can increase our own testimonies as we say what we are inspired to, in order to bring souls unto Christ. The Spirit is so great here, and I love it every second. some days are long, tedious, and discouraging, but prayer and scripture study really helps me to find solace, and I know God loves us and wants to bless us.. If we feel alone, and just want someone to talk to and love us, Heavenly Father is there with open arms. All we have to do is ask for what we need. i know so strongly that Christ died for all of us, and that everything in this Church is to bless our lives, because God loves us more than we could ever love anyone. Love you guys, and talk to you soon! Have a great week!!!
