Week 4

What a week in the MTC! We have been working so hard. We teach mock investigators everyday and it is getting easier and easier. Our goal this week is to teach without writing out our sentences in Korean first. We will see if I will be able to teach without any notes! What a rush!

The MTC is bursting at the seams! The lines for the meals sometimes go out the doors and you have to get to devotional an hour early to get a seat or you had better forget about it. They are also having to turn missionaries away for choir because we completely fill the bleachers in the gym! How crazy is that. They also tell us every devotional that we are a part of the largest missionary gathering of all time. It keeps getting bigger and bigger and we get a couple hundred new missionaries tomorrow too! How wonderful that I get to be a part of that.

The group before us leaves for Korea on Monday and I am starting to get a type of senioritis with them even though I am not going. The MTC is great but I am even more excited for Korea! Only a couple more weeks before they ship us out. Hopefully by then I will be more capable with the language.

I love the native Koreans that are here. I hope that I get to meet more people like them in Korea! They keep telling us about how much they miss kimchee and everyone else here is pretty worried about that but I am so excited to get away from this Cafeteria food!

Week 2 at the MTC

Hello from my second week in the MTC. Things are going very well for me. I am setteld in and working hard to teach my two new investigators. During our first visit to one of them he almost shut the door in our faces. Something that I guess I will have to get used to but was not expecting in the MTC.

I am feeling the spirit almost always and am excited to go to do the work. I hope that the Lord will be able to use me.

I know how to pray in Korean now! I feel like such a boss being able to speak korean for a whole minute!

I am getting along very well with my companion Elder Ruff. We spend a lot of time together and might know each other a little too well. I am glad the Lord blessed me with such a great dang pan ja. The Lord knows exactly what I need.

The MTC cabin fever has begun. As a district I think we have tried every possible Soda mixing combination in the cafeteria. My favorites we named the Comer and the popsickle.

Sundays are my favorite days now in the MTC. I love the time that we get to spend listening to to the devotional. I also enjoy the Sunday night movies we get to watch. We saw the testaments movie this week. The whole auditorium went crazy during the kissing scene. The missionaries here are action deprived I guess.

I am so blessed to be here on my Mission and am gratful for the Savior and his infinite atonement as well as his restores gospel on the earth.
