So the travelling went good, I found everywhere I was supposed to go and it all went good! though I didn't eat because I was worried I'd miss something haha so I really enjoyed the food when I got to the MTC. The food here is great and we are really busy constantly. We are late lots just because all our buildings are so far apart and things are just scheduled so closely, but we are doing alright with it all and haven't gotten in too much trouble. haha Oh well it is good and I am learning sooooo much here and feeling the spirit more than I have ever felt it in my life! It is soooo spiritual here!
So the first day I showed up last and missed like all day so that was fun, but we also had a little activity where as a large group we learned to love people more and I did really good teaching and that's when I felt the spirit so strongly. we had a lot of fun and learned a lot. We met a "Gold Name Tag" who are people who may or may not be a member depending on the person but we prayed to find one and looked and looked and couldn't find one. It wasn't until later when we found one and I knew prayers are answered. we set up an appointment with her for so we were sooo excited! later that night we had our first Branch Presidency meeting and that went well. I got made District leader! So I like to say I went from being late to classes in the morning to becoming a District leader. haha so basically I have to pick up the mail and and lead District meetings and watch over the District so that is fun. we kept learning more just like always and I got to pick up the mail for the first time. Ya for a warning to anyone make sure you read ALL the directions your given. I didn't read all of the directions and I was stuck doing the mailbox over and over like 10 times and everyone just watching me like who is this guy. Ya wasn't to fun lol.
So we met with Rosie and I had to make a District companion switch because my companion had something so I took Elder Edwards. We talked with her and taught her and the spirit was so strong and completely led the lesson. It was so amazing! teaching people the gospel is my favorite part of the MTC! everything else is starting to get a little boring but we are all having a lot of fun. So we set up another appointment with her so i am excited! We also did awful in a role play on this day and just wasn't very good. Oh well were getting better. we just learned and learned and taught role plays that went much better. We met with members of the church who we could help and just talk with and we met one sister who was having trouble knowing what to do. So we helped her and it went well. We then met this guy who was Irish and his conversion story is soooooo amazing and was so spiritual it brought tears to my eyes. His testimony strengthened mine so much. we had our MTC missionary thing and that went good. We then had leadership meetings and I learned a lot. After that we had sacrament meeting and I had to bless with my companion. We had a District leaving so they mostly bore their testimony and it was awesome to listen to. We then watched the Christmas Devotional and it was very good. I love Christmas! :) we then watched some of meet the Mormons and it is pretty good. I'm enjoying it here and I LOVE PDAY! haha I finally am getting a break haha.
I'm quite tired but I owe everything to the Gospel and I finally understand that this is exactly what I need to be doing. We went to the Temple this morning and I loved it! I love the Temple. The spirit is always so strong. Well I got to go do laundry but I'm enjoying the MTC but i'm super ready to just start teaching! haha well till next week! enjoy your week everybody! make sure you say your morning prayers!
