This week has been another typical week at the MTC. This week we have really started learning a lot of the difficult Spanish grammar. I feel that I am slowly but surely making good strides in learning the language. However, every time I listen in on the Latinos talking to each other, I’m humbled every time. Lol.

Every Sunday we have a movie night and EVERYBODY gets super hyped for it. haha. This week we watched a movie called Testaments, I think…. It is a movie about the Nephites in the Americas who are waiting for Jesus Christ to show himself to them. As the movie progresses, the people and main character begin to grow more wicked. At the very end of the movie, the main character comes unto Christ and has a change of heart. When Jesus arrives in the Americas, the main character tries to take his blind father to Jesus, amongst the vast crowd of people, because his father has been a believer his entire life. As the father and son have an intimate moment, Jesus comes to them and heals the dad. The scene is very powerful and spiritually moving. I felt the spirit so strongly in that moment. It made me realize that every trial, every burden, every difficulty we have in life will be worth even just one second to see our Savior. That much I do know.
The rest of our week was pretty much normal. Lots of studying, teaching, and mote studying. I am really enjoying my time here in Mexico. I can’t believe that I will be in Chile in less than two weeks! Time is speeding by! I can’t wait to go to Chile! It is such an exciting time in my life.
