Week 2 - MTC
Elder Miller has been in the Peru MTC for 2 weeks. Here is his weekly summary. Enjoy
From Elder Miller:
This week was another great week here in Peru. I still sometimes doesn't seem real that I'm here.Classes are going very well. I am really starting to love my two teachers. They are both very different but have taught me so much. Our practice lessons are starting to get a lot better too. It is getting easier to hold a conversation in Spanish about the gospel. I love it here.This is my last week of being a District leader, it has been such an awesome experience. At first I was super nervous and the calling seemed like such a burden, but I was so wrong. My district has been so awesome.This calling hasn't been a burden at all. Only a blessing. My district has started a quote wall with sticky notes - on one of our classroom walls. My favorite quote from one of our teachers is -Que en el freaking MUNDO!-
Hahaha he is so funny! It means what in the freaking world. We accomplish a lot, but we
still have fun doing it!
Sundays here at the CCM are amazing! The spirit was so strong. A group of missionaries
who left on Monday all gave their testimonies. They were soooo good! This Sunday we watched a devotional from a while ago that was a talk by Jeffrey R. Holland to a group of missionaries. I got some really awesome things from that! I wrote down a few things that he said on my planner so I can read them every day one of them
reads -Be Converted!- and the other one says use -Spiritually driven love filled words-
He emphasized that every missionary should have at least one convert, or your mission was not successful. That one convert should be yourself! I really liked that because I feel like being a missionary and speaking Spanish are going
to be things that I will never be perfect at, but I can get a little better every day. That's
part of my purpose out here....to make me better!
Today we went to the temple again and Elder Klein and I got to do a session this time in
Spanish with some other missionaries. That was an awesome experience. Its cool to be able to make sense of a few of the sentences that you hear in Spanish. I feel like I'm learning something that's for sure! Much like Whitewater rafting on the Flathead river, the scariest part is the bus ride there. We get in a group of about 18 missionaries and go out on the street a try and catch a bus that can fit all of us. It is such an adventure!
