Week 2 - MTC

Hey y'all :) 

Yep my P day is on Tuesday and its been a very VERY great week. I truly love the MTC. Everyone here is super positive, a bit stressed but happy and the Spirit can be found everywhere! The teachers are amazing and really can relate to you.

This week is also super special because they just opened a new MTC building (its gorgeous!) And my district is some of the lucky few who has classes in there. And because it just barely opened we've been told that every apostle will be on campus this week!!! How cool is that?! I'm truly blessed and my companion and I are always on the hunt to see one. 

My companion is from Louisiana and her name is Sis. Bonham and she actually was next door neighbors to our mission president. Crazy. Shes super kind, sorta reserved but very competitive and driven. Shes really good and teaching the doctrine and I love applying it to today's world and share experiences. We work really well together. 

Ooo speaking about teaching, I absolutely love it! It reminds me so much of performing in Marching Band. You plan, prepare, pray then get super nervous right before. Then it works out great and you feel so much love while we talk to our investigators, then you just want to sleep afterwards. I love it! At the MTC they're having us teach 3 investigators 45 min lessons every day. Its nuts but super satisfying.

I must admit though I had a huge humbling experience with an investigator. She told us super personal information and that her brother had recently died and start to cry. I had no idea what to do except pray and cry with her. In a shaky voice I bore my testimony and the room was so full of love and pain. I really am looking forward to helping her but man it will take a lot of preparation. 

Whats also crazy is on Sunday my companion and I were called as Sister Training Leaders which makes us responsible for helping 20 sisters and fit their needs. We are in charge of orientations, interviewing, conducting and helping those who are sick or discourage, etc. Ive truly been humbled but I love the girls already and we have 12 more coming tomorrow! So pumped for them. 


Anyways I've got to go to go sing for Elder Bednar tonight. I love you all so much. Have a wonderful week!!!
