Provo MTC


Elder Brock Erickson

P-Day is Saturday

Hey everyone!

So my Preparation day is Saturday while here in the MTC. It has been an amazing time, I have already learned so much. My district is so awesome! My companion is Elder Brock Erickson from Smithfield, he went to Skyview and he said he knows Judson. He is super cool and we get a long great. We both work hard, and keep the rules while having a great time. We have been speaking a lot of Spanish, learning here is so fast. I would say 25% of our conversations are now in spanish after only 3 days.

My district is so great and everyone is so awesome. There are three Elder companionships and two Hermana companionships. I was assigned as district leader Thursday and I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve the district. The zone is awesome too, everyone is a friend. There are probably around 30 missionaries total in the zone, equal in hermanas and elders. We Went to the temple as a zone this morning and I shared all five of my ancestor names that I brought in the session.

Yesterday Elder Erickson and I were supposed to meet, and pray in spanish with an investigator who was our actually just our teacher. I misunderstood and after we met and prayed, I taught him how to pray haha. I didn't find out until later but I was not supposed to teach him how to pray. It was amazing because I had never learned how to teach someone to pray in spanish and only heard it once briefly out loud. I know that it was not me talking but the holy ghost and I testify el don de lenguas (the gift of tongues) is real. I have heard spanish when people were speaking english this week. I have woken up in the middle of the night and only thought in spanish. I know this church is true and I know the spirit is real.
