Week 3

Dear Mom,

This week was so great! We had lots of fun this week. Some of the things we did were we moved all of our beds out into the living room so that would have sleepovers every night. It is so much more fun to be with all the Hermanas and to bond more while we are at home. However, we did fail our cleaning inspection because of it, but we told the branch presidency what was going on and they fully supported us in our endeavors. :) Another fun thing we did today was go Brigham's Landing with our whole district! It was so fun and I love when people stop us and talk to us. I feel so cool. It definitely reminds me that I am a representative of Jesus Christ and I always need to act like it.

This week was full of music for me. A district that left for Mexico on Monday asked me to accompany them on Sunday at the devotional that is broadcast to all the other MTC's and is in front of both main campus and west campus. They sand, "If You Could Hie to Kolob." I loved playing for them. However, after this experience, I got called to be the Music Coordinator for our branch. I never get any callings besides music callings. So I guess I should get used to it. ;)

We got a new investigator this week. His name is Javier. We teach him on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for two weeks. Let me tell you, he is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. He is a professor at BYU and he is a Mormon in real life, but he is a really hard investigator. For example, all in Spanish, he asked us how we know there wasn't an apostasy after Heavenly Father called Joseph Smith to be a prophet and if we need to have a testimony of each individual prophet in the latter-days to make sure that the doctrine hasn't been lost. It was crazy and we told him we would study his question and get back to him on that. We realized we should have talked about the authority of the priesthood and how it is the same priesthood since Jesus, but obviously we didn't know to say that in Spanish to this man. These next two weeks will be interesting, but it has already been a big learning experience.

We got another district of 12 elders today!!! There are us four Hermanas and 40 Elders. It is so crazy. We get picked on all the time, but it is so fun. We are getting a new zone and district leader this week, so there will be lots of change.

Yesterday, Bruce C. Hafen talked to us about the temple and how much power it brings into our lives. We are beyond blessed to live in Utah where we have at least 5 temples that are an hour away. So many people do not have that blessing and I hope we are all using it to the fullest extent. I went to the temple and did sealings today and it was such a great experience. I am so excited to go to the temple in the future!!

I love you!
Hermana Wood :)
