Week 2

 Thanks for emailing me! I pray for you guys every day too! I am not even kidding! I pray for about 10 or more minutes every night because I have so much to be thankful for and to ask for. Glad you're feeling better as well! 
  This week was so great! My spanish is improving a ton! My companion and I are super good together when teaching lessons. We have 2 fake investigators at the moment and they are both our teachers so they can give us feedback. But they pretend to be someone else and its really hard but I love it.
  The lessons are of course only in Spanish. My companion is still struggling with the language a little bit but most of the time we can find an awkward way to say something to get the point across and the Spirit does the rest. We taught about the love of God and prayer in the first lesson and he prayed and then we taught about eternal families and I took over the second lesson. I told him in order to have a eternal family we must make covenants like baptism and others in the temple and if he would pray and prepare for baptism on like the 28th of February. He accepted! The Spirit was super strong and I wanted to do a little dance after he said sí. Elder Myler and I make a great team when we are playing sports or teaching lessons and I am super blessed to have him as a companion. 
   The food here is pretty great and I can always get seconds!
   The Latinos in our house are soo funny. They barely speak any english and its super fun to laugh at each other and try to figure out what is going on. We taught each other slang words. Now there is a bunch of Latinos walking around the campus saying "Sick" and "Dope". Its hilarious.
    I am doing really well and I am really happy here! The people are great and the Spirit is constant. I am still nervous to go out to the mission field but I am excited at the same time.
I did forget my orange shoes but thats it so Im pretty good. Thank you for all your support! I LOVE YOU!

***Duncan added an additional post that requested that I give his email address out after all because he IS allowed to write back to others not just close family! Yeah! You can all write away at .***
