Week 1

My first P-Day!! yay!! We got to go to the temple here this morning and it is absolutely beautiful!!!! Days like today I know this church is true with my whole heart. There is nothing that I doubt because the power of God and the Holy Ghost are absolutely amazing and perfect!!

I know I mentioned the crazy drivers last time but it is insane. In the movies about Rome and little cars and motorcycles serving in and out of traffic without even looking. That is exactly how it is here! There are even people that walk down the middle of the freeway trying to sell things because the traffic is so congested that they can do that all day. and i thought rush hour in the valley was bad...

Learning Spanish is seriously one of the hardest things I have ever done. Its so humbling and I used to think I was smart or something but that is definitely not the case with Spanish! Its pretty funny though because so many words are close to each other and conjugations are confusing which makes for funny errors. I was teaching a lesson so our investigator Renzo aka our teacher Hermano Herrera I accidentally said we all have fish instead of we all have sin because the words are pecado and pescado. I also asked a girl if she liked sin one time when we were eating fish for dinner hahahaha the joys of a new language! I also called myself an apostle because I used the nosotros conjugations and so my other teacher calls me "Hermana Elder Brimhall" now. I just want to make it clear that I'm not an apostle haha. 

In class we were talking about the restoration and someone asked why Joseph Smith had to be so young to restore the gospel since that is a problem that some people have. there is a scripture in Matthew 9:17 that explains it perfectly! He had to have a sort of innocence that wouldn't pollute the teaching of the gospel. If someone older was to receive all that Joseph Smith did it wouldn't have been the pure gospel that it is.

I love you all and I am doing amazing!!! Email me and let me know how you are doing and what you are up to!!

PS these keyboards are in Spanish so if words are spelled wrong just ignore it or mentally fix it yourself
