Monday was a very tough day for me

My first week at the MTC has been great.  I am not in the same branch, district, or building as Trevor, and I dont get to see him a lot.  
I have been trying to stay very positive and always smile.  Monday was a very tough day for me.  I played soccer for gym time, and I sprained my ankle while playing goal keeper.  It hurt so bad that I cried.  The docter said that it was a bad sprain and that it would take at least 2 weeks to heal.  I was kind of down because i felt very useless and I couldnt do a whole lot. I could barely walk, and it was fun at all.  I asked my district to give me a priesthood blessing, and all 10 of them joined in the circle.  the blessing was powerful, and i felt the spirt very strong.  My ankle still hurt a lot that day, and I could barely go to sleep.  When I woke up the next morning, I felt much better and i could walk on it.  The swelling was way down, and i actaully felt great.  during GYM time i went to the doctor and checked every thing out with him.  He said that he has never seen anything like it, and that I was good to go after I passed some tests and drills for my ankle.  I played volleyball that day and yesterday.  I have a strong testimony on the power of the priesthood, the holy ghost, and faith.  
My Spanish is coming a long very well.  We have been teaching a real investigator named Jiro Ramerez, and his testimony has grown so much over the past few days.  he now has such a strong testimony of the church and the gospel.  after my companion and I gave a simple lesson on the holy ghost and bore simple testimonies in spanish, we challenged him to become baptized, and he excepted.  the spirit was so strong in that meeting, no words can describe.  I know that it was the power of the holy ghost that converted him, and we were just gods instruments in inviting the spirit into his life.  
We have already had a fireside and devotional, and they were both about missionary work, and they were both amazing.  I have been singing with the MTC choir, and I love it.  I can feel the spirit so strongly when I sing.  We sang Come Come Ye Saints at the devotional, and it was so powerful that I cried.     
I love the MTC very much.  it feels great to be a servant of my heavenly father.  I love my companion and district very much.  I do everything with my district.  today we went to the temple to do endowments, and it was wonderful.  we have a lot of fun together.  I will try to send you some pictures.
