My Mission President advised us all to write home tonight so that we could put all your worries to rest. All I have to say is that I love the MTC! Everyone is so nice and outgoing. It is easy to make friends here, especially if you have an orange dot on your name tag. This means you are a new missionary and everyone looks out for you. After you guys left and drove away I got a tour (a quick one) and then got my name tag(Luckily my pocket had already been ripped open). It is weird calling everyone Sister and Elder. I can already tell the Sister missionaries are going to be an amazing asset to the mission field.
It is also really cool to see people from all around the world here. I like seeing in the name tags in different languages. The Elders that are learning different languages always try to talk to you in the language they are learning. I love it! We really are the Army of Helamen from all around the world!
I have already seen Elder Jordan Marcroft (roommate), Elder CJ Reber, Elder Brayden Derrick, Elder JT Abbot and Elder David Lloyd. My P-day is on Wednesdays’ so that’s when you can expect an email from me. Apparently we are in here for three weeks so we leave to West Virginia on Feb 5th. My companion’s name is Elder Skeleton and he seems really cool. He is from Arizona and played soccer. There are four people in my room and I got stuck on a top bunk. Everyone loves the cookies and they say thanks.
I am gonna be so busy while I am here but I am excited to learn and grow so I will be ready to teach the people of West Virginia. All of the Elders going to my mission sing John Denver’s song. One of the guys in my room is a Canadian EH. Everything here is centered around the Church. I love you guys.
