MTC Week 3

Tuesday June 23rd

La semana fue rápido para mí también. Okay ill go back to English now,
haha. The language is coming pretty good, poco a poco ( little by little).  Just been learning a lot of Spanish and teaching mock investigators
and lessons.

I asked Andrew what he did on p-day, his response was:
Go to the temple, clean up, email, nap, talk, relax, and tonight we have devotional. Couldn't go to the temple this morning because choir practice. And got a haircut after my nap.

MTC 2nd week

Tuesday June 16th
The espanol is going little by little, language is my struggle but its going pretty well. Exciting news I was selected for a choir consisting of 40 missionaries that will be singing for the mission president seminar. With this opportunity I get to sing for the Apostles and other high church authorities and possibly the Prophet, such a blessing and super excited.  Super exciting news, I will for sure keep you updated.  Singing base part.

Elder Rovere, native from Brazil, doesn't speak any English and is really cool!

MTC 1st week Part 2

We got a letter in the mail today from Andrew too!!  He and 3 other Elders are going to the same mission in Argentina, one is his companion Elder Hendrickson, Elder Lakey, and Elder Wallin who is from Alaska too how crazy is that?!

MTC 1st Week

Hola everyone! First P Day at the MTC. Feels like I've been at the MTC forever, the food isn't as great as every says it is, but today we went to the temple (which was awesome) and had delicious breakfast at the temple cafeteria after our session. First day at the MTC was crazy!!!! Very spiritual, amazing, and exhausting! First day's first class all Spanish, very difficult but learn alot in class this way and now it has gotten better and I actually understand what is being said, grasping the language slowly and strongly. At the MTC you really humble your self a realize you need the lord in all the things you do and he helps in so many ways. We were able to watch Elder Tom Perry's Funeral on the 5th was quite the service and very touching.  Question for you all to ask yourself, Who is Heavenly Father to me? My companion is great, Elder Hendrickson! My zone and district is also awesome, full of great missionaries, people , and now friends. and Had some very long and Hard days here, but through God Nothing is impossible!

Love Elder Andrew Quinn Mendenhall
