We drove from Des Moines Iowa to Kansas City Missouri and flew back to Salt Lake City via Denver. When we arrived in SLC they were having a massive thunder and lighting storm. We took the bus to the parking lot to get our car and I got drenched while I went to get the car while Janice waited in the bus waiting booth. We made it back to Lindon with no other problems. It was great to see Mitch, Cassie and Hallie Jo.
We found out from the young Elders that while we were away for the weekend the out break of flu's had increased and they were quarantining the Missionaries that had symptoms. It has become a huge issue at the MTC and they are going to delay Elders from leaving to insure they are free from symptoms and they are not going to allow family members to attend the Wednesday orientation meeting when the Missionaries arrive at the MTC. They will have to drop the Missionaries at the sidewalk and say their goodbye at that time.

We are back at the MTC learning Spanish from 7:30 AM to 7:30 PM. We are really enjoying learning and enjoy the days that we are feeling well and everything is making sense.
At the devotional we got to hear from Elder Walter F. Gonzalez of the 1st Quorum of the Seventy. It was a great talk and the spirit was very strong.

We are continuing the Spanish Tutoring and things continue to slowly be retained. We have 3 weeks left until we officially report to the MTC for training. The everyday all day language training with stop and they offer evening tutoring the language. We are trying to focus and work hard to learn as much as possible before we start the other training so we will not have multiple things to focus on.
Saturday afternoon we are going to see Janice's brother Gregg in North Ogden and his family. We are going to a dance program that Courtney is performing in and spend the night and go to Church with them tomorrow.
