Regarding the pictures: We have THE BEST service job at the MTC, we get to clean showers. I know that doesn't sound very appealing, but it is. The best way to explain it is basically that I'm a ghost buster for 75 minutes every Thursday. We get these huge hoses with gun-nozzles attached to the end and we shoot pink foam at all of the showers out of them and then rinse them down with water and scrubbers. Its a good time. I'll have to send you guys a picture of me using the spray gun sometime.
In the pictures with us with headphones on is in the TALL lab (Technology Assisted Language Learning). It's a kind of really outdated program but it's helping me a lot with my pronunciation.
I saw Kelly again this week, we talked for a good half hour, she told me a little about her mission in Germany and gave me the updates of the NBA playoffs. It's great seeing framilliar faces. I haven't seen anyone new lately, but apparently Grant Jones is coming in this Wednesday, so I'll be sure to snag a picture with him. I've will have officially been here for a month tomorrow, boy has the time flew. Only one more month until your son is in CHILE! I'm so excited. By next weekend my district will be the oldest one in the zone, we'll be the top dogs here. Weeeeeird, i feel like i just got here.
My reading of the Book of Mormon is going by swimmingly. I just finished Alma 20, so I just finished the story of Ammon and King Lamoni, wayyyyyy good story. I want to be as good of a missionary as Ammon was, maybe without cutting off people's arms. Anyways, I'm getting more revelation and insight from reading from the Book of Mormon this time than I ever have in my life. I am actually learning from the stories and applying them to my investigators and my calling. I really am doing what I hoped, by developing a stronger knowledge and relationship with the Book of Mormon.
Thank you all so much for your prayers, you're love and your support. I love you all so much. I know that I am doing the Lord's work. I'm growing a lot and I can't wait to share my message with the people of Chile! Talk to y'all next week!
xoxo, Elder Schwartz
