So it has been another speedy great week at the mtc! And yes mom i did get your packages! everyone loved the oreos and i havent opened up the salsa yet... im savering it!!! and i was able to last week watch the 2002 olympics of sara hughes ice skating for relief society and this johnson lady talked. she was very successful in life and was showing how we can be successful missionaries if we have the same positive bright attitude like sara hughes! haha. and yes i have been sick this past week coughing up my lungs. but its not the swine so its all good! oh and my companions are going to buenos aires south and rosario. my whole district is going to argentina but most to rosario and a couple to buenos aires south. so i'll see none of them. hermana hansen is from lehi and hermana smith is from riverton! she actually went up to logan for school before our mission so we always talk about how we will do stuff once we're back!! originally i was supposed to have my own companion but she ended up being fluent in spanish. her mom was from spain and they would go there every year for the summer.so they moved her up in the intermediate class and she left this week for our mission she was our roommate too so i was able to see her all the time!( we'll probably be companions at one point in our mission) I love it here! each day gets better and helps me focus on my purpose! this week we went to the trc on monday and taught this guy named orinez. He could hardly speak spanish and we could hardly speak english, so we gave our lession on the plan of salvation in our native language. He told us at the end that even though he couldnt understand most of it he could feel the spirit very strongly! Tonight my companion and i are singing joseph smith's first prayer in spanish for our zone meeting! we're pretty excited We just got a new district this week as well! and three new hermana's! we played volleyball this week too and we rocked with the elders. we have gym 5 days a week! i hope you all are doing great! and keep writing me! love love you all!!!
