To me are Pleasing the Tacos (MTC week 3)

Ok so, I'm sure everybody is wondering what we did for 4th of July here in the MTC. Well, we didn´t do anything special on the 4th of July. But its ok, because we did something on the 2nd of July instead. We had a special celebration about the freedom of our country and because of this freedom, the true church of Christ was able to be restored here. The celebration was awesome, and we sang songs like Yankee Doodle and Yankee Doodle Dandy. At one point, they showed an animation of missionaries running all of a world map to the over 300 missions in the world. But the best part was still to come. Five bagpipers and a small drumline marched in playing the typical bagpipe melody, which happens to be the tune of Praise to the Man, which we were talking about anyway in the clebration. While the bagpipes were playing, about 30 flags from different countries also came marching in. It was cool. After that, the whole MTC got to stay up late and watch firewroks that BYU was launching. Usually, we have to be back to our rooms at 9:30 and in bed by 10:30, but and Saturday, we didn't return to our rooms untill 10:45. I know, it was so late.
Sunday was had more meetings than usual becuase it was fast Sunday, but it was still awesome. The fireside in the evening made it even more awesome. Jenny Oaks Baker, who is the daughter of Elder Oaks, performed for us. She is a professional violinist who's soloed with about every major orchestra there is. She explained experiences of how her testimony was strengthened, and played songs that were related to the experience. Even her daughters, who were 8,6 and 4 played "I'm a Child of God" on the Piano, Violin, and Chello. Her daughters got a standing ovation.   
On Monday, Elder Spear (my companion) sprained his ankle playing basketball. He was on crutches for a half a day. The good part him being injured was that we got to use the elevator instead of climb up 4 flights of stairs to our classroom multiple times a day. Don't worry, his ankle is doing much better now.
This week, we kind of made a district theme song, but not really. Its the lyrics of "Listen to your Heart" translated into Spanish. Yeah, its awesome. My district also likes to make up what my teacher calls Spanish aposatsies, which is slang phrases in English we translate into Spanish. These include, but are not limited to.
Alto cinco
Justa Ka
Que Abrir
Other quatable quotes from this week include: Fiesta in the elevator and You from the desert?
Any ways,
The MTC is still an awesome place, and thanks to everybody that writes me.
Elder Clark
