Well today was the last day of class. We only have fast sunday tomorrow and that means it will be a nice day to just relax before i leave. Oh i am guessing everyone knows by now, but if you don't, i did not get my Visa on time. The great news about that though, i am getting reassigned to the Orlando Florida mission. I am already excited to serve a mini-mission especially since i get to try to convert Micky Mouse before i get to leave for Argentina. The hope is that i get assigned to the Spanish Speaking Mission there, but that is all up to the President there. I am quite excited because one, i get to serve two missions, and two i get to be out in the field for a time and practice my spanish before getting to Argentina. Accents will be different, but at least i will be able to speak and listen.Our district is going to be pulled apart. Most of us are going to different places. We are all really excited for each other though. We have all come out a little stronger from this and feel like we have all lifted each other to excellence. We feel so ready for the Field. I really have a lot of reasons to be thankful for what happened in these last 6 weeks. I have my district and teachers who have really helped me live in the MTC. They have taught me how to be a missionary and they make me feel ready for what is ahead. I really didn't know what to expect for the next two years, and my teachers helped me gain a vision for what might be ahead. I am ready to help people turn to Christ and find the same happiness that i have in the Gospel. The next person i have to give thanks to is my Heavenly Father. In this group i should also include Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. Through these three beings, i have become a 6th grader in Spanish. I can keep a conversation and bare my testimony with El Espiritu Santo testifying with me. I have learned so much spanish it is crazy. I wrote a whole paper about the first lesson, and surprisingly enough, it wasn't half bad.My teacher gave me a Super Bien. I am feeling really confident in my Spanish, i just hope that my Mission President will let me serve in the Spanish region while i am there so i don't lose track of it.
May the Fourth Be With You, and i promise you that you will feel the spirit when you turn to the Lord often.
