It´s been a great week. I don´t have much time, but I want to say how much I love it down here. It´s to think I am in Mexico, it doesn´t feel like it. I have two companions because of how it worked out, but it´s great. Elder Pace and Elder McCracken are my best buds now.
So Elder Pace had a gnarly spider bite on his leg, the doctor told us this morning that it was the worst he had ever seen. He entire lower leg was swollen and red, but Elder McCracken and I gave him a priesthood blessing before. I have never felt so close to the Spirit, it felt like there was a third set of hands on his head as we gave him his blessing. I know that the Power of the Priesthood is a real thing. I know that through faith in Jesus Christ, he will bless with anything that we work towards.
Spanish is so much easier than English. I am picking up on the language really well. The gift of tongues is a real thing! There is no way I could have learned as much as I have in the last week as I did without it.
I got called as our District Leader too. It is great. My district is amazing. They all have such a desire to serve the Lord and be the best missionaries that they can be.
The days are long but good, I´m going to the temple today so that should be a big stress reliever. I am so happy to be here and there is no other place I would rather be at this point in my life. I love the Lord and I love all of you.
