Hey everyone,

How’s it going? Well I’m doing good, especially since today is P-Day AND we went to the Temple as usual AND it’s my halfway mark for the MTC!!!! It’s pretty crazy it doesn’t seem like I’ve been here that long. but ya other than that a few things that have been going on is so far we've had 2 members of the Twelve Apostles so far, Dallin H. Oaks AND Quinten L. Cook, it so cool and we got the closest seats to both of them we were front row! I love them. (I have been after him about his favorite scripture for his plaque at the church, he finally answered) Oh ok and I think my favorite scripture is going to be Helaman 5:12, or around there it talks about building your foundation on the rock of the lord and Satan wont have power over you. But yeah other than that we go to the RC (referral center) and answer phone calls and chat with people who are curious about the church its way cool. I was chatting with this girl from Caracas Venezuela and I have talked with her before and I challenged her to read some chapters in the book of Mormon, one was 3 Nephi 11 and I told her to pray and ask heavenly father if it was true and so on Wednesday when we were scheduled to chat again she said she did pray and she feels that the book of Mormon is true and that this church is the only true church!!!! so I was kinda giving her the whole first lesson and she was loving every minute of it, it felt so cool to see the change that takes place in someone, and I’m going back in on Saturday to see how she is doing on some other commitments I gave her and I can’t wait to talk to her she has been amazing to talk to and I told her to try and find the missionaries and talk to them if she can!! other than that nothing really, OOOHHH so we were sitting out on the grass last weekend I think it was and all the sudden I started to hear some cheering and stuff and it turns out the MTC is right next to the BYU stadium!!!!! and when the football game actually started it was crazy we could hear almost everything so we followed the score for a while, that was the first time I was kinda bummed out but I didn’t feel like I wanted to be anywhere other than on a mission cause football will still be there when I get back! Well ill talk to you later love you guys!!!

Adios, Elder Curtis

p.s. I get to print my emails out and read them before I respond to them, and I’d rather get them through dearelder cause I get them that same day and can write back to them throughout the week, so let everyone know that!!!!!!
