Semana 3

Hola World! 

I'm not quite sure how long today's email will be because I don't know how much I have to say and I am running low on time. 
This past week was amazing. On Sunday for Relief Society Sheri Dew came and spoke to us. That was awesome! She is so great! We started TRC on Monday, which is where we have an investigator to Teach every day.So now we have 3 investigators. 2 named Javier and one names Daniel. Daniel and one of the Javier's are our teachers but I still learn so much from teaching them . 
The Devotional on Sunday night was so great! The man who spoke ( I forget his name) was hilarious. Then last night the man who inspired the movie "The Other Side of Heaven" spoke to us. It was such a powerful message. At the end of it the closing hymn was "I know that my redeemer lives" and let me tell you something. The spirit during that last hymn was soo strong. I don't know why, but I do know that I was crying, the Elder sitting next to me was crying and then I turned around and the Elders that were sitting behind me were crying. 
Oh oh oh! Last night at devotional I felt someone like attack me in an embrace and then guess who it was? It was Heidi! Sister Best. She is seriously so awesome! I just love her! I didn't even realize that we would be here at the same time. 
We leave to CR is 2 weeks and 5 days! How crazy is that?!? I honestly don't know if I am ready but I do know that if they gave me the option to leave today I would go! I love the people there so much and I can't wait to get there and to serve them and to bring them the happiness that only this gospel offers. 
We went to the Temple today as we do every single P-Day and let me tell you it was awesome! Then we went to Brigham's Landing and had DP for lunch and then got a Jama Juice. Jamba Juice is 50% off for missionaries so that was awesome! You can probably tell by the pictures how excited I was to be in the real world for a half hour or so. 
I am starting to have an easier time with my companion. While it is still hard I am growing to love her. 
I love my district so so so much! The elders that we have are such solid guys. The Hermanas are also awesome!
Everyone asks about the Spanish so I guess I should update on that.... Its coming along. Slowly, but its coming. I know that the gift of tongues is real but it doesn't happen over night. 
I wish that I had more to say but I honestly just don't. I don't live a very exciting life here in the MTC. 
So the Elder that I am standing next to in these pictures... we know each other but we don't know how. It has been driving us crazy since day one. He is going to Costa Rica too but yeah. No idea. He is from Washington. So we took a picture together to see if anyone we know can help us out. Our comps are only in the picture because you cant have a photo with just one elder and one sister. Some strange rule.. We have got to figure it out. His name is Elder Henry. Someone HELP US!!

Here is my weekly plea for letters and Dear Elders! Mail time is the best time!! 
I love you all
Hermana Gibson
