CCM Mexico City MTC


Elder Ellenberg

Week 6

As Red would say ive been institutionalized (name that movie) kinda feels that way with all these 15ft walls all the way around us

Oh my gosh i cant believe it is week six already its our last pday today and everyone is both sad and extremely happy were leaving. My departure time from the MTC is at 4am and then we get on a plane at 7am so it will be a long day im not sure what to expect when i get out of the only green square in mexico city for as far as i know but i know it was the right choice to come. These past 6 weeks have taught me a lot. i think i know enough Spanish to get by but im not sure from the stories my dad has told me it was a lot different for him when he got out but i guess we will all have to wait and see. This week was super cool!! We were doing TRC which is like talking to members of the church that come to the MTC to help missionaries to practice but we got a person who was very un-active but not all the way to inactive. We had a nice 15 minute lesson with him and i think we got our message across pretty well. Our Spanish wasn't great but we knew all the words that got us through. During the lesson he told us that he works as a finish carpenter and that he doesn't have a lot of time to go to church but he brought up the book of Mormon and i felt like i was on a rollercoster i was speaking faster Spanish than i ever had after he said that and i know it was the holy ghost helping me. but in the end we got him to commit to read the book of Mormon he said he just finished Alma and that he would read the whole book by the end of the year!! that was probably the highlight of the week.

I know going on a mission was right for me and i know it is right for anyone with the desire to help other people even the lord in his work. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that he restored that gospel to the earth through his faith in not only Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father but just wanting to help his fellow man. I know without the Atonement of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice on the cross that none of this would have been posable. I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today. He loves each and every one of us. One of my favorite things to do in church is to stand up and sustain people into having positions in the church because even the sustaing of a Sunday school teacher is just as important as sustaining the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that what i am doing is the lords work, i know he will look out for my family as i am gone, and i know this is his church. To clarify my family inst just my immediate family but everyone i love, all my friends that have played such an important role in my life, my scout leaders who have taught me so many important lessons of working hard and always finding one thing i can do to make someone else day better, and to my family my Dad and Mom and brothers and sister thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be apart of your lives. Being apart of your lives has blessed me far greater than any of you will ever know. How you have taught me to be patient when i am frustrated, or helpful when i might just want to be lazy, and strong when i am week I love my entire family and i know that this is Gods plan to bring families to live with him again.
