Two Weeks Down!
Here is Jordan's group letter. Keep in mind that our boy sends personal letters to us which
contain a little more nitty-gritty, frustration, humility, and so on. He is experiencing a very
normal sense of inadequacy that people feel in the training center and out in the field. He
realizes how far he needs to go, and how much he needs to still change. As his mother, I
perhaps know him best. I have complete faith that Elder Grover will return home changed,
and in the meantime, become a better person and effective missionary. Our home has been
blessed with a sense of increased peace, and I know this is a reward for the sacrifice.
From Elder Grover:
So week two came and went and i have no idea how it did. It was honestly so fast
that i cant distinguish one day from the next, so unfortunately im gonna stick with
the give you a paragraph and hope it works approach. Classes are so long, mostly
because its all in spanish and half the time im translating everything in my head.
i get spanish is an easier language to learn, but dangit its so annoying! We now
have two investigators we are teaching and Elder Cook and i are killing it. whether
its me talking or him, we are seeming to make a ton of progeress with both. of course
as soon as i leave here it all going to be ten times harder and faster. oh well i will
worry about it when it comes. today we will be going to the temple and im super
excited to see it. the food is the same, rice and some form of potato or chicken.
our bathroom adventures are still as eventful as ever, and i feel like im connected
to alot of random elders becausof them... Its still amaziong here and im loving
almost every minute. it definitely is hard but i feel that in a few months when i
look back i will see how far i will have come.
i love you all so much and i look foward to next week when i can write again! Chao!
