1st P-Day!

Wednesdays will be my favorite day of the week for the next 5 weeks.  It's P-day!!!  This mama needed some pictures of her boy BAD!  Here is a letter for your Spanglish enjoyment.  They speak only Spanish in class so he is having a hard time speaking English....even after only one week  :)

Hello Family!
The MTC is great. Since its in mexico its called the CCM (Centro de Capacitacion Misional). I've had tons of great experiences and I've been having a lot of fun. There are so many people here that they divide us up into zones, then into individual districts. There are 8 people in my district (4 sets of companions) and then pretty much everyone in my zone plays sports. We have about an hour of gym time everyday and we are always playing anywhere from volleyball, soccer, basketball, etc. The first day when I got here I was kinda out of it. Not really missing home or homesick, but I just felt this empty feeling. I didn't know why I was feeling this way until later that day right before dinner we had a meeting where there were a couple of investigators (people looking to join the church) that came and were asking us questions about what we know, and we had shared experiences and our testimonies about how the Gospel had touched our lives. At that moment, I had a complete feeling of comfort come over me, as I bore
He could not wait to wear one of these.  

my testimony to these two wonderful people. It reminded me why I was here and what my mission was and what I needed to accomplish. Ever since then, I have always been happy and have always felt the spirit as I go about my meetings and classes. Even though it's only been a week, its been pretty hard to type this message in English. I have learned so much and there are some words I have to think about, and retype so that they are English. Yo missíon es invitár las personas a venír a Cristo al ayudarlas a que recibán el Evangelio restaurado, mediante la fe en Jesucristo y Su Expiación, el arrepentimiento, el bautismo, la recepción del don del Espiritu Santo y perseverar hasta el fín. There are so many personas who help us cada dia con nuestro español. All ustedes do es talk to nos en Español. At this point I've just given up trying por escribo en Ingles. Amo everyone. The food es muy bueno y mi compañero es grandioso. enseñamos an investigatore, el nombre es Ramiro. nosotros enseñá on nuestro primerá diá. I miss you all, es dificil trabaja pero es worth it. I love you all. You all have been a great impact in mi vivé. We hear gun shots cada noches, policia sirens, pero barking, y personas screaming. es bueno though...

I am really thinking about what I say now. sometimes I have to ask others what certain words in English are pero i´m doing my best. I have learned soooooooooo muuuuuuuch. del don de llenguas es verdad. I haven´t been homesick. I love mi compañero, we get along grandioso. es fun hablar en Español y escribar en it. The food is quite different pero es bueno. Los chips tortilla eres muuuuuuuuuuy bueno. So crisp, so flavorful.  I miss you. Love Ty.

He got the top bunk (I recognize the blanket)

There is the "Greenie" package I sent him on the floor.

I think this might be the outside of his dorm.  I like how he pulled his jacket to the side so we can easily see his badge  ;)
