MTC Provo, Utah
21 April, 2013
Oh my goodness I had no idea that the MTC was like this it is so amazing and so powerful. So when I got in on Wednesday I didn't realize how many missionaries their were. Just the group that I entered with their are over 500 of us. There are 253 Elders and 259 Sisters, which is the first time ever that there has been more Sisters than Elders. It's so crazy but amazing. So when I finally had the chance to meet our district they are awesome. I got lucky and was put in a companionship of three, my two companion are freakin awesome (Elder Forsyth and Elder Burgan). I got put with the two forigners in our district. Elder Forsyth is from Canada and Elder Burgan is from England. And then there is my district, there is 9 of us all going to Jacksonville and another district of 8 also going to Jacksonville on the same day. Anyway so my district their just pure awesome and I know that we were put together for a reason. Through talking with the teachers here they have said that our district is so spiritually strong this early and we are asking and understanding concepts faster than most people do. Especially yesterday our district just broke down in the morning and realized that we are no where near prepared to teach, but it isn't us teaching others hearts it's Heavenly Father teaching their heart. We are just perviding the message. Our teacher Brother Rasbensen said that what we experienced yesterday take other missionaries half way through their second week at the MTC to realize. And to be honest I know now why I'm going to Jacksonville and not serving a Foreign mission it is because of this District they are truely amazing, and I have really grown from them. I know now what it is like to feel others spirits when they testify what they know. Especially the Sisters in our district they are just amazing. I know that without these Elders and Sisters theres no way that I would be where I'm at now. And all of us have admitted that to each other. So I truely believe we are put together for a reason. Anyway now my companions are the zone leaders and I'm the senior companion. Oh and Caleb isn't in my zone but he is in the class room right next to me and we are in some classes together. Oh and I also have run into Colson Rich, and Jason Lee a couple of time. Anyway things have been going good I'm having fun. Let everyone know that I love them, and so you know you can email me even though letters would be better. Clifton's emailed me. I guess he must love me more.
Love you all
P.S. How is my CTR ring coming along. Oh and I truely want you to know that I truely love your testimonies and they have strengthened mine. And one more thing, Dad thanks for the advise on prayer. Now I really look forward to my nightly prayers with Heavenly Father, I can truely feel him there with me.
