WOW Thiisss Weeekkk

So this week started out like any other week. Other then my comp was like super sick and didnt feel good. but he kept working. On Wednesday we went to the hospital and we found out he had something happening in his brain which is never good. The doc said he needed to rest for one month with no exercise or anything of the kind so he needed rest. So he called the Pres and the Pres said that he could have 3 days to rest and they would work something out. But then He decided that it was time for him to go home. So on Thursday we woke up, he packed his stuff and gave me a lot of it and them the zone leaders came to our house and we dropped him off at the bus station.

So for the last couple of days I have been with the Zone leaders in a threesome and honestly I couldn't be happier! They are both American and both speak really good Spanish! I have been able to express everything I wanted to in the lessons and if I didn't know how to say something they were there to help me! This week has been great and I'm learning so much Spanish! The last couple of days I have had so much contact with people and mucho conversations with Mexicans in total Spanish! Oh, Also I learned how to roll my r'S! I sound like a real Mexican!!

Something that I learned this week, that when teaching a lesson "I need to have the Spirit" or it doesn't work. Also when giving blessings!! This week we have had a lot of people where we are teaching the same principles and I have things memorized because I didn't know how to say them sincerely. So when we were  in a lesson we had, I tried to give my memorized thing, just think about that, and it was terrible honestly. haha But then the next lesson I decided that that's not how I'm suppose to do it and when I started teaching I taught by the Spirit and honestly I was saying words I didn't know and it was awesome! So teaching with the Spirit is the only way to teach from here on out. haha The reason I mentioned blessings is because this week I gave a blessing in Spanish to Elder De Jesus who went home, but it was a blessing of counsel to help know what he needed to do. So when I was giving the blessing I started speak soley in Spanish and I thought I knew what I was saying. But later he said what I said and I had no clue what that meant! It was crazy! And he told everyone that the whole blessing was perfect grammar and vocabulary that I don't even know! I still don't know what I said! haha I forgot to ask the zone leaders to translate it. hahaha But anyways, ya the Spirit is the only way!

Also so far I have given 9 blessing and half in Spanish! And the other day this lady who is prideful and didn't want to be baptized but liked the church, agreed to because of what I said and she started crying and tried to hug me. But I had to tell her I can't, haha, it was pretty cool!!! I'm going to send another email with pics!! Hope everything is going well!!!

Just remembered something but today we asked the Pres a question and he kind of gave a snooty remark. haha Not really, but it kind of seemed like it and so we were just joking around and laughing and saying that he is super mad at us and how he is probably yelling at his phone on the other side and breaking things and next thing we know right after we talk about him he sent us a winkie face! We searched for the microphone but couldn't find it but it was funny. haha

2 Months!

Holy Crap tomorrow marks two months!!! Only 22 months left! I don't have much time but this week was actually one of the best weeks!!

I actually did my first contact in Spanish all by myself and everything went great!

A had divisions with an American and we had a great time but walked like 15 miles because nobody was home and we just kept going but for some reason.  It seams like the more I speak English the more Spanish I understand! haha idk why but its pretty sweet! 

Honestly being here has been hard but when ever something is hard all I have to do is remember what I'm here teaching! A lesson I have given a couple times was centered around the scripture Mathew 7:7 -12.  It is basically ask and you shall receive and that is the realest thing ever. The other day I had a bad night and woke up and there was literally no water and so I said a small quick prayer asking the lord to help me have the best shower and that the water would turn on and just be perfect for an amazing nice shower and no joke the water came on with more water pressure then we had had before and it was the best shower yet! And so then I asked if every shower everyday here could be like that and guess what they still are! Oh my gosh the Lord loves me and is helping me so much!  

We have a lot of popcorn here and if you know me, you know I love popcorn. and oh man it's the best! The other day when I was on divisions we had an amazing breakfast oh so good. 

Oh and also I have been taking lead in our lessons which is cool that my comp trusts me enough to let me take the lead!
This was the comp I did divisions with

With Love

Should you want to email TJ, his email address is

From Monday 2/2/15

My week has been trying but it's been good!

This week I got to teach two people in English! It was sweet! One guy wants to be baptized really bad but he just has to get married. His girlfriend is already Mormon and it's been really cool teaching him!

My Spanish is getting better and I am starting to understand! It's awesome! I'm helping in just about every lesson and it's been great! I can't wait until I understand more and can talk to people who only speak Spanish and have them understand what I'm saying! 
We had our zone meeting on Friday and people had to translate for me but I understood a lot. We had a big cleaning day today. Cleaned our house for like 4 hours. It was good.

Anyways, don't have a ton this week! Love you all!
