Hello to all,
This week was a good one! In the beginning of the week we had zone conference which was awesome! Then Tuesday was P-day and we went to the beach to play some soccer, it was really fun! About sending pictures I didn't want to take to much time because I already emailed once before and were only supposed to email for one hour haha. But I will try... on Wednesday I went on exchanges with the zone leaders and the zone leader told me that the purpose of the exchange was to see if I was ready to train. I only have 3 weeks left of my own training and then I might train. He said that he thinks I will be.  I had a great time teaching with him, so we will see. We have 13 new missionaries coming next transfer. It was funny but mean, but during the exchange when people would ask for me in my area the zone leader told them that I died in a moto bike accident, one person actually started to cry a little bit, at least I know I'm loved here haha.  Thursday and Friday we just taught lessons, and then Saturday was the baptism. it was a good one I baptized three people one of them being Sis.Clark.  Sadly one of our investigators that was going to be baptized wasn't because her sister was in the hospital, so hopefully we can make that happen next week, and Sunday was exciting because we had an investigator that came to church for the first time after us teaching him everything and him not coming, so that was exciting. I really miss church back home I'm not going to lie, its easier to feel the spirit back home, here its so distracting during the meeting with the way the building is and what not, but we still have good meetings. I still have a deep love for my mission! Elder Burr and I were talking about how fast its going to go by :(. But all is well.  Well I love you mom and I know that this church is true. I've said a couple of times in some lessons that if someone were to ever hold a gun to my face and told me to deny my message about the gospel and to deny my testimony or they would kill me,  I would tell them no and to kill me! I will stand by my testimony till the day that I die. I can never deny this gospel I know that it is the reason that I have gotten this far in life. I can testify that it is true. I love you all and miss you too.
Elder Montgomery
