week 2 was pretty amazing. as soon as i finished writing i went to the temple. that was an amazing experience. i learned so much the second time through. and it is a tiny temple so that was cool too.
so i really want to send pictures but i have no idea how to work this camera so im not sure if ill get any off this week.
santiago is a really cool city. i currently live in a 100 year old house in the east mission. we do our personal study there every morning and then by bus we get brought to the MTC. we spend 10 hours at the mtc in classes then we get bussed back to the house to sleep. thats my life. and i love it.
so this sunday was definitely the best day ive had out here. i got hit with a huge wall of the spirit. it was crazy. each week we are asked to prepare a talk for sunday and on sunday they call random people to give talks. i got called on this last sunday. the talk is supposed to be mostly in spanish and so i wrote a little talk in spanish but i shared an experience in english. the meeting was on prayer. i shared a story about a time i remeber praying harder than i have ever prayed before for the health of my sister. i was bawling... and so was the rest of the congregation. it was amazing. ive never felt the spirit so strongly before in my life.

i just want to leave you all with my testimoney. i know this church is true with all of my heart. it is the one true church on this earth. i know joseph smith is a true prophet and that he did see heavenly father and jesus in the grove. i know that the book of mormon is true. i also know that thomas s monson is a true prophet. i know that this is where i meant to be right now. i know that this is an amazing work that im doing and i am so excited to bring people unto christ.
i love you all. i hope you have blessed weeks.
