Mi Familia! <3
So, I won't get any letters until tomorrow, but I wanted to write to you tonight and let you know how I was doing! :) I LOVE IT!! So far, it is really busy, but they say by the end of this week we will know what we are doing. I won't get a P-day until next Thursday, but I can write any time I am free.
So I got here and put my bags in, then went straight to class. I met my district, they are so nice and I will love spending all my time with them. So my companions are Hermana Garrett and Hermana Helms. We are in a threesome. They are so nice and I know that they will be amazing missionaries. We then went to a meeting where the MTC Presidency welcomed us. They are so nice and I hope I get to meet them and get to know them better.
Then dinner time!!! I saw Elder Mosley, Elder Wolf, Elder Murphy and so many friends from school and EFY groups! But then I saw Curtis!!! :) I couldn't hug him, but I was so happy and I cried! But you'll never believe this...HE IS MY ZONE LEADER!!! He leaves for Mexico on Monday so I will only see him for a few days. But we were so excited! What are the chances?
Well, then I practiced teaching investigators in a big group, but I got called on to talk about church meetings. It was a little intimidating, but I think I did okay. It really made me realize how real this is and how ready we must be to allow the spirit to guide us. I read earlier today in D&C 128:22 that we must "go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory!" So I will just keep on going forward and learn as I work.
I miss you all and love you so much. Time will go by so fast, so just keep sending me letters and praying for me! Thanks in advance for the letters I will get tomorrow!! Oh, and Dad, I asked if they (Curtis and Nathaniel) had been getting my letters and they said yes, it's just hard to find the time to write everyone back in one week. Well, I love you all so much and can't wait to hear how home life is. "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina!" It's been stuck in my head all day...
