July 31, 2013 We're Bustin Outta Here!

Holla Familia!
Que pasan ustedes?! This week has been a blast! We got one of our investigators to babtism and also mike is here!!! We had dinner one night and he seems like he is doing well I cant tell you how good it is to see a familiar face around here! We talked about the good ol days and whats been going on since. i gave him the intro to the mtc and it was just like the good times exept we were in suits and I spoke spanish to him. Speaking of spanish guess what?! you know Colgate? like the toothpaste?! Colgate means hang yourself!!! How terrible is that?! Anyways I just thought that was terrible and also a funny way example of that you should check your company name before hand.
So this crazy thing happened on sunday we were walking around the temple and I saw Ben Patch!! From BYU Volleyball! The super good one!! i went up to him and we talked for a little and took a picture it was super sweat!!!! So yea that was like the highlight besides the talk we got last night from Brian Richards. Two words BEST. TALK. He talked about missions. He said that he was part of making preach my gospel he said that "preach my gospel was designed behind the vail and put together on earth" Yea bet you wanna read it now huh?! He pretty much said if you listed closley that angels helped them make it. How cool is that?! Then he said that for decades now they have wanted to change the age for missionarys but the time wasnt right. How neet is it that my age group was preserved for all time to come in this day to serve this purpose. When i say it like that it becomes so real and i get so pumped and trust me it is very, very obvious that the lord has his hand in this work. That being said, he also said the lord does not need "spiritual weaklings" and its true. This day is for those who are ready and who have a desire to serve and the lord needs all he can get. I dont know whats going on upstairs but the more the general athorities talk the more clear it is that the fight is about to change and saten and his cunning plans will sweap the earth and if we are not worthy and steadfast in the lord we will be taken. We were not called to this day to pass though earth and take a few tests. We were preserved for this day to fight saten and you can just feel it when you are out here.
Intense stuff huh? Well Im excited to leave its getting more real and we are starting to pack. ill send out and email when i get there with my new address other then that send your last letters!! I really like to hear from my siblings ;) even if i cant respond please still write i like to hear whats going on and i will try as soon as I can!
OH!! Grandma said a train crashed in spain well guess what?! one of the missionarys was hurt in the crash but did not die and is fine BUT! There is an elder her who because he didnt get a visa he was supposed to be on that train with that missionary and because of the delay he avoided the crash and might have died. You thinkin what im thinkin?! Yea the church is true.
Other then that its the same old mtc we know and love full of class, food, short gym times, study and carpet walls. Yup im livin the high life (Spiritual high life!!)
Everyone listen to some Rooney this week for me and maybe Atlas Genius. We just got an austrailian elder and he loves them so we are best friends.
See you in the swamps!!
-Elder Drollinger
