From the MTC
First Week in the MTC
I just had my first week in the MTC, and it's been quite the enlightening experience. Just from being with my companion I have been able to see a lot of my quirks and weaknesses. My companion is wonderful and is an amazing example to me.
9 weeks seems like a lot to most, but personally, it isn't enough time. 9 weeks is going to fly, and I know I have a lot to learn.
My companion is teaching me how to schedule and pace myself. The highlight of the week is probably the conference talk I watched on Sunday, by Elder Bednar about Christ-like attributes.
In my district my companion ( Sister Perkins) and I are the only sisters, and there are 6 other Elders. I don't have much time to go into detail, but we laugh and learn a lot. The elders are all very musically oriented, so they sing hymns all the time. Listening to them sing lifts my spirit.
If you write a letter to me I will write back. It is going to take me a while to get used to emailing. Please be patient with me. Thanks :)
Thank you for your prayers, I'm thinking of you.
Also regarding everyone:
If you have any question just ask. When I'm typing under a time limit my thoughts get jumbled and I freeze up on what to say. If you already have some questions lined up for me. Feel free. I have an iPad so I can read all the emails you send. I just can't respond until though. Using email is really new for me.
