So I’m sure you’re all DYING to know how my tv debut went. It was stellar. Just kidding, they only filmed us for like half an hour, but it was super nerve wracking. They had cameras all up in my grill and sound mics and all that good stuff, but we weren’t allowed to look at the cameras and we filmed the same scene of my teacher coming in to greet us like twelve times. Good times.
Only me and one of the elders in my district got interviewed. I GET THE WORST STAGE FRIGHT. I was super mad because they made me take off my name tag, which is like trade mark missionary so I’m surprised they let it happen, but the questions were super easy like “why are you on a mission” “what’s it like being away from home” blah blah blah. AND I got to answer in English. What a blessing! I don’t know how long it will be till we will get to see it but as soon as I hear I will let you know!
We were feeling all bad about our spanish abilities while they were filming because we couldn’t understand anything the camera guys were saying to each other! We later learned they were actually speaking Italian. Haha thank goodness!!
It’s pretty crazy that I leave for Argentina in a WEEK AND A HALF. I should be getting my travel plans today or tomorrow. I’m feeling more and more confident in spanish, but I’m sure once I get there that confidence will be non existent once again, lol.
My teaching abilities are also improving major. We took on another investigator (actually one of our teachers, but it’s pretty realistic so he’s practically real.) He said he had gone through like five sets of elders and told us up front that he was NOT going to get baptized. My companions didn’t want to teach him at all but I took it as a challenge and forced them to teach him anyway. And thank goodness we did! Because he agreed to give up alcohol and be baptized after only our third lesson with him! Faith truly does bring miracles!!
Larry S. Kacher of the 70 came and spoke this week. I LOVED his talk. Afterwards our entire zone had a little testimony meeting with each other and the branch president. I don’t think I’ve ever felt the spirit so strong! It was like there were angels in the room!
The church is so true! Testificio que El Libro de Mormon es verdadero! The Book of Mormon can answer any question. Seriously, I invite you all to just read the Book of Mormon if you have a question and I know you’ll receive an answer!
Love you all!
