Some more questions we asked Elder Gubernick-
Did elder Reynolds get his visa figured out? Yes, he is going to the same mission. El Salvador, San Salvador Do you take a bus to el salvador or a plane? We take a bus, about 4 hours Do you have a date to leave for el salvador? The monday in three weeks. Sis Garlock said elder Reynolds is very witty and very competitive at games? He is the Man, I love him. We will definietly hangout after the mish. Have you heard for Elder Lebaron? Do you want his address? I asked him today, he emailed me but nothing big just to say what his deal is. How are the lessons going with the security guard? Awesome! We taught him yesterday and he is progressing so fast. His only problem is the Sunday deal since he works all day Sunday. We told him to ask his boss for this Sunday off and he said he will be in contact with us. He has a testimony of the Church, and he knows it. He just thinks it will be a big change. He will be baptized, I know it. How was it to go outside the MTC? We went proselyting. It was so intense. I got paired up with my favorite Latino Elder Ayala and we walked all day. We talked to everyone and rang every door bell. The first guy we met happed to speak perfect English and he had been to church in LA 5 times. He said he likes it he just doesnt have time. We got his info and referred him to the missionaries in this mission.
On the Fourth we had American food, Sandwhiches and chips, koolaid and cake. It was so fun. We sang the songs of our country and had a lot of fun. I dont really need anything in particular that i cant buy here. This tuesday when the Latinos get sent off we get to go to the Market in downtown Guate with President Nicolaysen. I will probably get some stuff down there. We get to have Wendys too that day and take a tour about the revelations in the Book of Mormon that take place in Guatemala. I heard from the other missionaries that is is so much fun. I cant believe my stay here is almost over. Dad, I read alot, mostly the scriptures but i have been reading Our Search For Happiness and it is very good. We listen to some MoTAB and EFY music during study time too. Your lives sound exciting right now. Mine is very exciting. Our lesson with Estuardo went amazing. Its not that I understand every word he says so fast but I can feel his intent through the Spirit. He is my main focus right now. Every study i conduct has something to do with him and his needs. Where in the scriptures I study depends on him. This is what a mission is all about, helping Heavenly Fathers Children come unto him through the restored gospel. I have learned so much here, not just Spanish. I can tell that when I study the words of the Book of Mormon, my testimony grows each time. Through Prayer anything can happen. P.U.S.H "Pray Until Something Happens" I know this works. I love it here. I have met friends I would have never met, I have met people that I was supposed to meet. I know that I am serving the Lord and that these two years arent for me or even for you. These 2 years of service will bless our lives but these 2 years are for our Heavenly Father and for the people of El Salvador and Guatemala. I love this church and the way i was raised. Thank you Mom and Dad and everyone who took part in my life. I love this work. Im glad everyone is doing well. I miss you guys so much. Mail takes like 2 weeks for me to send it to you because it is through Pouch mail. I sent you and aj a letter last Pday so look for it this week. Sorry it is so slow. Couple things about El Salvador... In El Salvador I WILL eat pupusas everyday, they dont really pronunciate "S" so it sounds like El ALVADOR. A word a friend told me that will boost my street credit is "es chevo" like "sick" or thats cool. in Mexico its ""Que Chedo" Remember to P.U.S.H... Con Amor, Elder Gubernick
