I used my card in the MTC store to buy some small stuff. It would be amazing if you sent a package of goodies and chocolate, food here is like a currency lol. I tried sending pics to dad this morning but I can't seem to get it. I can't send pictures for some reason and it's really frustrating, but I guess I can still share some stuff by telling you. Today we went to the temple for the 2nd time while at the MTC to do endowment sessions. For the past week we have had TRC investigators here at the MTC its role playing, some are members but some are real investigators but the MTC won't tell us who is who. One of the most special times when teaching one of our stubborn investigators, at the end of the lesson we pray and I got a feeling that we needed to kneel and pray with this investigator. Soon as I was about to suggest we do that my companion said the same exact thing I was prompted to say. That was special! My district is still amazing and is a family to me now. The food is making everyone gassy to (haha) but the food is pretty good. The only down side is in the middle of the week, there are a ton of missionaries and the line gets super long. It's really weird going out side the MTC gates and knowing I have family across the street. But anyway, my companion is Elder Taylor, our room mates are Elder Clayton and Elder Hollingsworth. We are all going to SLCE and they are great guys. We have a trio in our district that are going to Oregon, they are Elder Partridge, Elder Klima, and Elder Fisk. Then we have 3 sisters, Sister Clark, Sister Mcneil, and Sister Jensen who are great young women. My Zone can get pretty spazzy especially our neighbor district but it's a blast. Most mornings we have free time so we go play sand volleyball and that gets pretty goofy. After Sunday passed the week went by fast. But on Tuesday we had a devotional and my district joined the MTC choir. I know me and singing? But we got front row seats to hear one of the Seventy, Juan A. Uceda. Between the talk and singing... talk about a spiritual experience! On Sunday there was another devotional, a band called the " the National Tribute Band" made up of all LDS men. It was fun but at the end the main guy told us a story of when he was on his mission, then they played a song about leaving home kissing your mom goodbye, then going through your mission and then at the end returning home, but not wanting to go home. The spirit was so freaking strong it seriously made every Sister and Elder, thousands of us start crying because they put the lyrics up on a screen and had ALL the missionaries in the MTC sing it. We could barely keep it together and finish the song. I'm even having a hard time right now typing that part. On Wednesday we got some newbies, glad to say we aren't newbs. But on Monday and Tuesday we lost our veterans here and while in our residence hall, even though they only knew us newbs for half a week some of them were getting emotional cuz they didn't want to leave. I write in my journal every day and keep you, dad, Mikaela, and Mark in my prayers. I hope everything goes well at home. I do miss you guys but surprisingly I haven't been home sick yet because of the environment here. Don't worry about me being gone because I'm here at one of the best places here on earth.
-Love you all
