Dallin is learning the language much better and has said they try to speak Spanish as much as possible. Speaking the language is easier when he speaks about the gospel, but regular conversation needs some improvement still :) We are proud that he is a leader and really pushes everyone to speak only Spanish. He said he told everyone to carry their Spanish dictionaries around to help them. Dallin is learning that obedience can bring about the miracles they need, especially with learning a new language. Quote from Elder Hazelgren: "Obedience brings blessings, but exact obedience brings miracles." What a great quote to remember and try to live by! He also said he has put post it notes throughout their house with motivational sayings on them. He loves getting people pumped up and excited about things! Especially when it comes to serving the Lord.
Dallin got a small eye infection this week. I'm sure this is the first of several infections he'll probably get over the next two years :( He had his eye checked at the clinic & was told to put warm water on his eye and his eye is fine now.
Unfortunately he only sent one picture home this week, he said he was having computer troubles. Its a picture of his scriptures in Spanish and if you look closely you can see words he's highlighted and have an English word above them.
