MTC week 2

Hey all!
Holy moly this week went by so fast! The days seem to go on forever but the weeks just are flying by! The MTC is awesome. It is truly a place of God. It is a place where I can always feel the spirit strong as long as I am obedient to all the mission rules. I don't remember if I mentioned last time but my companion and I are now sacrament coordinators and I am the pianist for Priesthood, thanks mom :) haha I just want to thank you all for your prayers and letters. They really keep me going. Okay, so a cool story. My companion and I taught a practice investigator yesterday. We went in there super excited and prepared to teach a lesson about faith, repentance, and baptism. We went in there and we taught this amazing lesson with the spirit and we committed Carolina (our investigator) to be baptized, come to church with us on Sunday, and read and pray about the Book of Mormon all in SPANISH! The Spanish is coming along really well. I know as I continue to put my trust in God and work as hard as I can that I will be able to speak the language. And the most important part of missionary work is not the language, but is the spirit we feel with our investigators. A few more things. We got a new teacher, his name is Brother Osuna. He was born in Mexico so he is an awesome teacher. His style of teaching is incredible. He speaks amazing spanglish haha. My companion Elder Beck is from Centerville Utah and yes dad, his uncle is the YM General President. This week we practiced street contacts so that was pretty sweet. Good job with TO by the way. I have so much stuff to tell you and I'm pretty sure I'm telling you all the important stuff but I still feel I haven't told you anything. This week I had a pretty bad cold but thanks goodness I'm better now. I also had like 30 swollen taste buds on my tongue and it was terrible but I am all better now. I get to go to the temple every pday and last week I did an endowment session but it will just be easier for me if I don't have to worry about the family names. I don't need Mexico pins cuz Cory sent me some in a package. I have seen Elder Mosley, I saw him yesterday and I also saw some of the guys from Arizona like Elder Rogers and Elder Parsons. It is cool cuz I do see Ben pretty often. Oh yeah, sorry about forgetting the scripture for FHE so much stuff to remember. This weeks scripture will be Jacob 1:19.
 I love this gospel and I love being a representative of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love and miss you all.
Elder Hixon
