One week down! Crazy how time flies. I feel like I have been in the MTC forever and it has only been a week. I have loved every minute of it. Mom I did get your package! It was great. Thank you 🙂 I definitely need some sugar to keep me going through these long days. But I did forget my camera some how. So if you could send that to me that would be great!
Sister Moss and I have investigators that we have been teaching while we are here. It was definitely scary going into my first lesson and not really knowing what I was suppose to be doing. That is usually how it goes here. You go and teach a lesson and then when you go to class they teach you what you could have use to help that lesson go more smoothly. But it is all a learning process. Overall the lessons have gone really well and I have felt the spirit in all of them. Oh and I think you would all be impressed. I have made it through lessons without crying!! I have definitely cried while here though… tears of joy of course and feeling so blessed and feeling the spirit so strongly. Back to my investigators. I have three. Kristi, Kenzi, and George. They are all amazing people. Kristi is actually our teacher pretending to be an investigator, but we can still feel the spirit as we teach her which is truly amazing. I have come to realize that even though we are members of the church we can still come closer to Christ everyday and we should always be continuously reconverted. George is my favorite investigator. He is truly an amazing man and he has such an amazing story. He had his leg amputated a while ago, like twenty years or so and through losing his leg he came to know God. I don’t have time to tell it right now but I’ll write it in a letter and send it to you guys, but I think it is one everyone needs to here. He truly strengthened my testimony of God answering prayers. And I do know that God does answer prayers. He is always there for us and waiting for us to communicate with him.
I got called to be a Sister Training Leader for my zone and district! So I get to meet the new district of missionaries that will be a part of our zone today. I get to help them through their experience at the MTC. I only have four more days left. I leave early monday more to the airport. My flight leaves monday at 8:40, so mom be ready with your phone when I call. I will be in Pennsylvania by 4:30 that night. Crazy! I am so excited to get out there!
I love this gospel. I love being a missionary and wearing the Lord’s name on my badge. I have already had so many amazing experiences here at the MTC. I wish I could share them all, but I don’t have enough time!
I love you all! I hope you have a fantastic week. Next time I email it will be from Pennsylvania!
