Another week down and another month down! 2 months in, 22 to go. Elder Betancourt bore a beautiful testimony to be about trusting in the Lord as I learn the Russian language. He bears testimony that the Lord has helped him in his journey already SO much. It is so beautiful so I wanted to share it! Fun pictures at the end!
When we SYL we are putting our faith in Heavenly Father and he will bless us! It is like us saying, "I don't really get this but I know you will help me!" That's one thing I have learned about being a missionary, we can literally do just about anything (with in human reason...sorry no flying) ALL ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH! That is exactly what Elder Bednar promised us!
I love you so much kiddo! Sorry I didnt mean to like grill you...but i thought it was pretty sweet!"

He wrote, "A nice piece of grass. There isn't much of it here!
