Reassigned to the Salt Lake City Mission

Stephen's visa didn't come so he was reassigned to the Salt Lake City Mission for what we thought would be 6 weeks.  But it only lasted 2 before his visa came!
Here are some of his experiences:

That first day was so hard I will be honest.  The next day we went out and street contacted at Temple Square which I was sooooo nervous but after about 30 minutes the nerves settled and I had such a cool experience. There is a lot of work to do here and the people are so kind! The members in the Spanish ward are so nice to me and I am progressing in Spanish by leaps and down every day! I understand more and more every day.   The members feed me soo much I have left every house sooo full but the food is soo good! The people are so patient with my Spanish and have helped me a lot.
We went to talk to a family and I understood a good solid 50-60% of the conversation.  They had such a humble spirit about them.  I just love the spirit of the people here.
Every day is an adventure in itself and I learn so much.  Every day has its up and downs but the ups make the whole thing worth it.  First Sunday was great.  I had to get up and introduce myself and bore my testimony in Espanol J yep it was pretty great.  My mission experience so far has been very different than I thought it would be but not in a bad way.  I love it so much.
