Coltons Letter, March 30, 2011

Well I won´t get any of your dearelders or pouch mail till tonight but Thank you family for last weeks Dearelders!! It was so great that night and reading and hearing from you! You all sound like you are doing great!  Well let me just say that I love it here. I love it more than anything except for Utah. It is my home and people always make fun of me but I like to sing about Utah. Utah with it´s mountains and valley´s. What a great place to be!! Well let me just tell you about my week. It was exceptional if you wanted to know. We got to go proselyting on Monday. It was the best day of my life. I experience some pretty crazy stuff. We went out with our Latino companions and even though I didnt understand much I still got to bear my testimony and smile. That was great. But our teacher felt that we needed more referrals so we went out again but this time it was E. Meoño and I. Yes two N. Americans with little Spanish and not knowing where to go. We walked into a neighborhood and we talk to the first man we see. He realized that we knew little Spanish and yet he was still interested in our message. The Spirit was like nothing I´ve ever felt. My companion rocked it and I asked him if he´d ever read the Book of Mormon. He replied No, I´ve never had one. A smile came to our faces and we just shared our favorite scriptures with him. We gave him his first book of Mormon and he wanted more visits with the Missionaries. I wanted to cry but my smile was too big. I got a taste of what the next two years is going to be like but our next referral was a different story. He was talking to us and rambling on in Ketchee or something and I had no idea what he was saying. I testified to him and my companion did the same and we told him about the book. He prayed about it in front of us with the book held high in his hand. Hahahahaha oh what a day. I hope he receives the message! My spanish wasn´t so hot though. Well this week will be the final week with our Latino companions. They leave next Tuesday and let me just say that they are going to be amazing. I am going to miss them so much. They are the funnest people and so loving and patient. They are so willing to help with our Spanish but next week we get new ones. The language is coming slower than I´d like and that is why I´m working on patience and dilligence.  I went through the Guatemalan temple and it was one of the best experiences I´ve ever had. It is so beautiful and small.    Well that about sums up everything that has happened this week. I miss you all so much. We got to talk about our families and I was so excited to show everyone our family pictures!! I love you so much family. Dad thank you for being who you are. You are the most amazing father and the most amazing example of love and support. You are so humble and that is what I will strive to be like. I love you so much. Alyce thank you so much for the Dearelder. It was so good hearing from you and I love you so much. You are everything I could ask for and I know that you are a shining blessing in my life. I don´t have a lot of time left but to my siblings. Oh how I miss you all. I can´t describe how much I miss being around the house with all of you. You are all truly amazing and what an amazing support group I have. Tell the grandparents hi for me and let them know how much I love them! Till next week my amazing family! Don´t think that I´ve lost my funny, I still laugh way hard here and i still like to party. Connor I hope you are dating a lot of girls because you have to make up for me too. Oh how I miss the girls. haha just kidding!! Girls are gross. Love you family!!
