Another week

Hola mi familia,
This past week has been pretty good. No complaints. I got an awesome package on Saturday. Had cookies, caramel brownies, and all kinds of other good stuff. I loved it! Thanks guys!!! Oh and just so you know, everyone agrees that the brownies are by far the best.
One the more miserable side of things, this crazy bipolar weather up here has given me a nasty head cold that I've been fighting for the past couple days. Oh and one of the elders in the other companionship that shares our room (his name is Elder Hemple), contracted pneumonia. Fun stuff. But hopefully, it should get better. Not sure though. We don't get weather forecasts here, or any news for that matter. Last week, when one of the elders in my district got mailed a copy of the current (well not so current now) standings in the NCAA tournament, it was all that anyone in the zone talked about all night. Until 10:30 that is.
As for that Colombian missionary that I met, he is headed to Washington DC. He was called to speak Spanish, but I guess that when they call you to serve in the US and you don't speak English, they have you learn it.
Not much more to say for the broadcast email. Umm...Fast Sunday is this coming Sunday because we have General Conference in a week and a half. I can honestly say I have never been so totally psyched for General Conference in my life. Sadly, we won't get to sing because the MTC choir sang last conference. Ah well, it is still really exciting that in a week and a half we get to hear the prophet, apostles, seventies, oh I just can't wait!!! It is going to be so awesome. I want you all to commit to watch all of the sessions. And take good notes. Not of what is said, but of what the Spirit says to you as you listen. I've started doing that lately in a little book that I take with me everywhere. It is probably one of the greatest faith and testimony building things I've done in a long time.
Well that's about it for now.
Till next week,
Elder Rallison

PS- read verse three of the hymn "How Gentle God's Commands". It's amazing to me the lessons that can be learned from music. DyC 25:12.
