Front Row Seats!


What a week it's been here at the MTC! Let's cut to the chase!

On Friday, my district met our second teacher, Hermano Arnold! He is the one who has been acting out Claudio for us during our first week and I'm sad to say, but we are no longer meeting with Claudio because Hermano Arnold is now Juán. Although we knew Claudio wasn't truly an investigator, we felt sad that we weren't able to visit with him anymore. But! With every disappointment comes even more blessings! We picked up two new investigators, Juán and Alejandra. Juán is a great guy and upon talking to him, we were suprised and pleased to find out that he is in Alma in the Book of Mormon! Wow! More of that in just a bit. Alejandra is an interesting story and that is coming up soon!

Saturday was alright. We had a substitute for class today and it was definately different as our normal teacher, Hermana Bauserman, has a super upbeat personality. But! Nonetheless, it was good.

Sunday was amazing. We had a very inspirational fireside given by Brother Heaton, the Administrative Director here at the MTC. He talked about what success means and how we should define it. Missionary success is baptisms, but even more importantly, it is measured by yourself in your commitment to do what you have been called to do to the very best of your ability with all your heart, might, mind, and strength and then leaving it in the Lord´s hands and expect nothing out of your efforts but rather that by your efforts the investigator may "perhaps" have that change of heart and receive the Lord's hand more fully in their lives. We just have the opportunity to sit front row and watch the Lord work miracles! How cool. After that, I got some pictures by the good old MTC map with some of my college roommates. And after that, I got to catch the last little bit of the movie "Mountain of the Lord." It is such a great movie, and I highly recommend you watch it. What a blessing it is to have temples in our lives!

Monday, we met with Alejandra and Juán for the first time. Juán has heard good things about the Mormons and passes by the temple in Chile (we transport to Chile when we teach him) everyday on his way to work. He reads the Book of Mormon like I said and feels it is true. Me and Elder Ridd are really excited about that and cannot wait to meet with him again and hopefully get him to come to church with us and maybe even commit him to baptism real soon. Alejandra is originally from Argentina, but moved up to Provo to be with her kids. She is a hard-worker and is a great person, but Elder Ridd and I just need to break down her barrier a little bit so the message that we have can sink in.

Tuesday was another great day and we had a spiritually restoring devotional and district testimony metting afterwards.

Wednesday was so good! We met with Alejandra and discussed more about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. The spirit was so strong and I know she felt it and that she is starting to listen more to our message because of the peace she felt. I know that when you bear your testimony, then the Spirit will testify also to the heart of those around you.

Today was another great day and we got to go to the temple again! Hurrah!

Well I have to go! Love you all!

Tenga fe y sea obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder Eric San Diego
