Guatemala MTC

Hi mom!! Wow I am so glad that you got to go through the temple the same day that I did!!! I can not believe that because I felt the spirit so strong too and it was probably because we were both there. The Guatemala temple is so beautiful and I love it there. I sat there for like half an hour and prayed and I felt the spirit soooo much. I seriously loved it. Tell Nathan I am sorry but I am glad he wrote me that email. Yes, will you please put some things in my blog if I don't have time. Letters take about 10 days to get here or there and so it's a while. I have sent you two letters after today so look for them. I sent like a 70 or 80 cent bill so show the kids they will get a kick out of that. Thanks for the dear elder. It was so good and I received it Thursday ngith along with some from Jen and Fro. It was nice to get all the letters. I got 5 and no one in my district even got one so I felt sooooo special. The MTC is crazy and I am progressing sooooo much. Seriously I love it and it's great to be here. We taught in spanish last night and it was crazy. Of course I could not contribute a lot but I was able to bear a solid testimony of the Book of Mormon and we asked Carlos to be baptized but he said it was too soon but he will pray about it. On Tuesday we are going to go out knocking doors and we are doing exchanges so I will have a latin companion and they will know the language a lot. I have been playing a lot of basketball and it has been super fun! I will pray a lot for Tay's passport. Let him know he will love it. Seriously he will be able to handle this. Only the first two days are a struggle and then it's amazing and so much fun and the spirit is here a lot you just have to pray for it. The language is coming along for not knowing anything at all. I am getting so many blessings and I am studying soooo hard. Let Jen and Fro know that I loved their letters and it made my whole night on Thursday. I can't believe it has already almost been 2 weeks. We're actually not even here for 6 weeks we're only here until the 21st of May so it is coming up soon in less than a month and we are trying to learn everything. Our teachers only speak spanish starting yesterday and I have been able to understand about a fourth of it and I am very excited. I do love it here. One of the seventies came and he looked right at me and my companion and started crying and said “I look up to the missionaries. I used to look up to the general authorities but now that I am one I look up to the missionaries.” He said “you sisters are amazing and you don't even have to be here but you are here to help the Lord and he needs you.” We were bawling and it was soooo good. I love this work and I can't wait to go out to the field and teach this gospel. Tell everyone I love them. I am going to write Dad and Tay now!!!! Love you mom. Love Court
