The Amazing MTC
First companion, Sister WhiteHello everyone!
The MTC is absolutely AMAZING. I love it here:) My companion's name is Sister White. She's from St. George and is going to Columbus, Ohio. She is so sweet and I love working with her. So there are three districts in our zone. One is all going to New Jersey, but I am the only sister, so they put me in with the district going to Ohio. The third district left for Australia yesterday. There are two other sisters in our district, Sisters Morgan and Davis. We all share a dorm together and we have so much fun. All these sisters are so sweet and hilarious. We were a very quiet group at first but now we are all so comfortable around each other that we can laugh at anything.
We mostly have class every day with our districts. Our teachers are Brother Leah (who has a legit British accent) and Sister Borland (she looks like Anne Hathaway). I love class, I am learning so much about sharing the gospel and loving the people. We've taught several investigators, although we don't know if they're actual investigators or just members volunteering, they don't tell us. I already love teaching. I was afraid everything here would be too much of a spiritual overload, but it's actually so amazing. I can feel the spirit during any part of my day. I really don't want to leave.
It took us a while to figure out how to get around campus. The second day was the most confusing. To start it off, I found out after we left that I had forgotten my socks, ctr ring, watch, map, schedule, hymn book, and planner. I think my memory is improving though:) We also spent five minutes trying to find stairs to the third floor of a building, only to have someone tell us it was a one story building.
I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life as I have here. There are four elders in our district and they are so hilarious. I don't even know how to describe them. Let me just tell you that two of the most normal things they've done are 1. argue for an hour about whether or not raisins are against the word of wisdom and 2. draw a picture on the board of a unicorn inside a narwall with its horn poking out of the narwall's forehead. Sometimes they'll be super spiritual, but eventually the 18 year old boy comes out.
We went to the temple this morning so that was really nice. The Provo temple is so beautiful. Umm...what else? The food is delicious. The campus is pretty. The Church is true. I love being a missionary!
