Aug 25th - I JUST WANT MY PAPUSAS!

Hola familia! Como estan?  It's never a bad week up here in the CCM it's so much fun!  So today is our p-day and we were supposed to see Elder Russell M Nelson speak in a devotional.  But we couldnt because apparently there are riots in Guatemala because the president of the country is super bad at running the government.  They are rioting because they want him to step down.  In the night a teacher who leaves in the city said he heard gun shots shooting and everyone wants the president's head.  Pretty crazy stuff...so, Elder Nelson couldn't come down because it wasn't safe.

This is my last p-day in the CCM and I'm super pumped to get the heck outa here!!  I just want to be out in El Salvador with my papusas everyday,  Hahaha!!  But for the most part this week hasn´t been too exciting, just study and teach in spanish all day...everyday.  It's so fun tho because I love my comp and my district.  Long Live Distrito Pedro!!!
 
But last sunday we met another guy in the area presidency in Guatemala and he is awesome.  He told us about how you should set your goals to thousands of baptisms because if you have enough faith...God will provide the people who are ready to recieve it...you just have to open your mouth. 

I love you guys so much and I want you guys to know that I feel your prayers all the time.  When I'm struggling with spanish...teaching...and just trying to have a good attitude the spirit is always there for me.
yo se que el evangelio de jesucristo es verdadero. yo se que jesucristo es mi redentor y vive. estoy agradicido por mi compenero todos los dias tambien mi distrito. mas importantmente yo se que mi familia es el meyor y son eternos!!!!

Muchas Amor,
Elder Gee

Aug 18th - DO YOU LOVE GOD?

Que pasa familia?  Well this week has absolutely flown by.  It's absolutely crazy how fast it goes when you have a ballin comp like I do, as well as fresh to death district!  Its going by way fast I cant believe I've been out a whole month.

This week was a huge gut check because the pace of the language went up as well as the intensity. I remember we had a fake investigator and he wouldn't except the church at all  and wouldn't believe in God.  He was giving my comp a hard time when we were trying to teach. I interrupted him and tried to defend my comp saying in spanish....do you love God?  And he said yeah and continued to bible bash the church...and then I replied back...then why cant I feel that love in you?  He stood there for like 10 minutes and then Elder Hallman and I began to teach more.  After the lesson we invited him to be baptized and he accepted it.  I know it was just practice teaching but it felt so real when I spoke those words...I didn't even know if it really made sense but my teacher who was the fake investigator said that it was really powerful Elder Gee.  You have a great gift of bringing the spirit.  It felt so cool...cooler then scoring the game winning goal in lax hahaha!!  I know it doesn't make sense at first but I feel so close to God and I can accomplish all things as he continues to strengthen me. When I am getting frustrated with others I just remember to myself...that every soul is great in the eyes of God and we should love them as God sees them and find the saviors lost sheep.

Thanks to all the emails of encouragement it means the absolute world to me...when I am teaching with the holy spirit or having a tough time which is like everyday, I can feel your prayers.  It's so powerful it makes me shake, Hahaha! 

I love every single one of you and know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ and he indeed lives and help us out of our burdens if we are worthy.  Be patient and always strive to do what's right.

I love you so much,

Elder Gee aka El Guapo!

Aug 11th - DOUBLE DRAGON!

This second week has flown by super fast! They have us teach in Spanish a lot and it's way hard the first couple of times, but it gets way easier the more times you do it.  I am starting to pick it up a little bit! I am not fluent but I understand roughly 60% if what's being said.  And today during Fast Sunday, I passed the sacrament and bore testimony in Spanish.  It was super cool because the President said to me afterwards, "We could all feel that one Elder Gee, goo job!"  IDK why, but the spirit is Spanish is stronger, it just feels like it!

I've made a lot of cool kids here, they all will be great missionaries.  We have a strong district with a bunch of cool kids.  I also got a PSG jersey from a little shop in the MTC, I know Josh will really appreciate this because its all white with a Nike sign for $15.

Where the MTC is located is pretty funny!  To your left you got the temple and on the right you have a Corona Bar that plays music all day and all night, Hahaha!  And they only play American songs like, the new hits! We try and sleep but we can hear the drunk people sometimes, Hahaha!

Also, there was a bad case of food poisoning her in the MTC.  It was so bad that kids during lessons have to crap and throw up the same time!!  We call that the "double dragon", I didn't get sick luckily.  I think it was from the chicken noodle soup.

I hop everything is going good, I pray everyday for my family.  And I thank the Lord everyday for my mission so far.  It's been awesome.

Yours truly,
Elder Kyle "El Guapo" Gee
