First excited!

Ok...well I only have a couple minutes...but here it goes! It has been so awesome! I love everything out here! My record is 10 cereal bowls in a sitting.....and I love the Spirit! My companion is Elder King! He is from Pleasant Grove Utah, and reminds me alot of Clay...we get along well! We have been teaching an investigator Maria, all in Spanish, and it has been quite the experience! We taught her to pray, and we got her to read the Book of Mormon! Also, letters and Dear Elders get here faster! If you want me to write back at least while in MTC!  Anyway, Maria has a couple kids, and has had some problems in life, but we love teaching her. She has been really into it and she asked us why it was so important to us. I was able to explain, all in spanish, how the Gospel has helped me, and how much I love it, and it was amazing! All the Spirit of course! Anyway, we taught her about the Plan of Salvation, and things like that, and we are going to commit her to baptism soon! It has been a challenge, doing it in Spanish, but I picked up a lot from Soccer....hahahaahahaahaha! Anyway, we have been working hard! We wake up at 5:00 or 6:00 and work at classes, with investigators and personal study until 10:00am! It has been some good stuff! Every Tuesday, we go to a devotional, and this last one was with Elder Neil L. Andersen! It was amazing! He taught about how we "Sacrifice for those we love, and love those we Sacrifice for." It was amazing! I've loved the entire thing! The Spirit helps so much. It is amazing how much of a difference it makes. I'm always excited to do things and share about what the Gospel is all about! Anyway, I know it is short, but I'm running low on time! Also, after the devotional, it rained, and I fell down the stairs and ripped my suit I'm getting them fixed...that was a bummer....I'm just letting you know! I'm really sorry! I couldn't really stop it....but yeah....Anyway, thanks for everything! I miss you guys! love you tons! days really are slow and weeks are fast for me! Tell everyone I love them! Thanks! Love you!!!!!
your loving son,
Lincoln Goodman!:)

P.S. would be so cool to get a package or mail instead of email! It feels so good :) hahahahaha! TELL EVERYONE THANKS FOR THE LETTERS!  I LOVE THEM ALL!!
