The rest of the week (Week 1 in Mongolia)

This week was really fantastic! We had to go to the city a lot for English teaching training - me and English teaching -Elder Sexton. For my training I am teaching with Elder Urness an English Class at the church. It's actually pretty fun! 

Elder Sexton is really great! We are teaching these two girls, Uundramaa and Anujin and getting them ready for baptism next month. 

There is a lot of walking, Yesterday we walked to church and back twice because we forgot something, luckily the our apartment is only 5 minutes away from the church building. Then later on during the day we were going out to two appointments, the farther one about 30 minute walk and the second one was on the way back. Anyway we forgot something we needed for the second appointment back at the apartment and walked to the first gave our message, then walked all the way back. Then we walked back to the other appointment a good 20 minutes back the way we came.... a lot of walking. 

The work is good and hard, but I love it. The Mongolian People are fantastic, So humble and so generous! The door to a ger is so short and I've got to duck to get in, unsurprisingly, and they are so warm when the stove is going! 

The Gospel is true and worth all the walking. Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. The gift of tongues is real, I couldn't be here and say anything if it wasn't.
