Elder Hazelgren is starting to feel like a veteran now that there are new missionaries who have arrived at the MTC! They do "fake" missionary lessons where they teach someone who is a member of the church but pretend they are not. He said those lessons are going well and he and his companion (Elder Shipman) have been able to teach by the spirit alone, no notes.
He is learning the language much better now and that is coming out more in the emails :) To all the elders it sounds like the Hispanic people are speaking a totally different language because they speak so fast! All the missionaries got to bear their testimonies and do it only in Spanish! Elder Hazelgren said he did fine especially since all the missionaries still don't understand it very well yet!
Dallin is very grateful when he gets to eat ice cream or other treats. They truly are a special "treat" down there considering the main dishes aren't so good.
Spiritual thought for the week..."I studied a lot about the Atonement today, I thought I knew the story, but I had no idea. If you think you know the story, look up every scripture about the atonement, then come talk to me. Its crazy to think how Christ would want to suffer for people that did such terrible things to him. I grew to love the Savior a lot more today."
Enjoy some pictures from week 2....
