Week 2

So this week has been kind of boring, because it is kind of the same thing every single day.  So that gets kind of repetitive and boring, but i know that it is necessary to have these classes to learn from so that i can become the best missionary that i can be.  So not much has happened this week, but there are five elders from the mtc that are all leaving on tuesday to go to quetzaltenango.  So i have been talking to them a lot about jonny, and when i told them that he was about 6 3 and 200 pounds they didnt believe me.  But yeah i guess i would believe myself either...  

Well I accidentally sent that last one so here we go again.  They seemed like they were pretty excited to go to serve in quetzaltenango, and they all wanted jonny as a trainer, and i told them to say hi to him for me.

On tuesday it is our p-day this week, but i am sending this to you now, because we get to go to the market tomorrow to shop for things, so we wouldnt have time to email... but p-days kind of change throughout the weeks, so next week it will be on wednesday, then back on tuesday in two weeks. 

Also me and Elder Pyper are both sick this week, mine is because of allergies, but his is a sore throat so Im trying to stay away from him as much as possible, even though that isnt really possible in the mtc.  

Sundays are the best days here, because they are relaxing, but we still learn a lot.  But in church everything is in spanish, which i am getting better at, but i still cant understand the latinos.  so i just kind of do my own personal study while they talk.  But after church this last week we watched like four videos that were all about an hour long.  It is nice to have that break from everything.  We watched two videos about pioneers, a video about Joseph Smith, and a devotional from elder Bednar.  So that was a good day.

Im going to kind of do the thing like Jonny where he shares a scripture with you each week, but a little different, because i have challenged myself to memorize one new scripture a day, so that by the end of my mission i will have about 730 ish scriptures memorized, sounds like fun right???  So i will share my favorite one that i memorized through the week.  This week is 1st Nephi 2:10, and it says,  And he also spake unto Lemuel, (insert name here) O that thou mightest be like unto this valley, firm and steadfast, and immovable in keeping the commandments of the lord.

Elder Jeffrey Stuart
