I am doing good at the MTC. I still feel like I am getting way too much information for my brain to handle. It's pretty amazing here. I am doing laundry right now. Sunday was amazing and long!!! Oh my, it's like going to three church hours at one time--it's crazy.
I wanted to tell you that I love you. You guys are amazing. The elders that I room with are awesome. I'll be sending my camera card back before I leave the MTC so you know what I looked like before I am off to Georgia.
I have been exercising here. I play an amazing game of four square. I am usually king of four square. But I don't think I have any more gym time. So that's sad. I'm leaving very soon so all the gym times are now clean your room and pack times. But I know I haven't really gained that much weight because I have been a little sick and don't really eat that much. But I'm doing good. I think the meds you sent me are working a little. So I'm feeling a lot better.
My district are all strong guys. All of them are football players and like to do push ups so I do that with them a lot which is a good thing. I got a water bottle and some MTC sweats. Everything at the MTC is 40% off here so it's crazy nice. I have loved the packages you have sent. The days are blending together and I'm letting the spirit come into my life like it never has before. I can see why people say their mission was way too short because the days go by so fast.
Our President said we could call home when we get to the air port. I don't know if you want me to call you, but I might.
See ya in two years.
It's pretty amazing here, I love every one here! The food isn't too bad. I'm not sure if I'm gaining weight or losing it, but I think I'll be fine while I'm here. I'm missing you guys and I love you. I saw Brother McClay, my seminary teacher from forever ago.
It's been hard being away from all of you and knowing I'll be gone for a long time. I wish I was out of the MTC already if you can believe that. I want to be getting out and doing the work. But I know that I have some stuff that I have to learn first. I feel like I'm going just a little crazy. Three days feel like six!. But P days aren't bad at all. I like them a lot.
The people in my room are all awesome and all more than 6 feet tall--so I am the shortest one of everyone--it's crazy. They are cool and we all help each other with everything here. They are my bro's. I feel comfortable around them. The beds are pretty gross, but the showers are the worst. I hear Sunday's are amazing here.
I love the package you sent me. I haven't been able to read the letter in it because I had to run out of my room. But I'll read it very soon.
I am teaching a teacher investigator, roll play type of thing. And it's super fun. But it has shown me that I need to just share my testimony more and show God's love for the children of God that they really are. I pray a lot every day and I can feel the spirit slowly work it's way into everything that I do. I'm having fun and the classes are amazing! I am learning a lot and I hope to soak it all in and when I go out and serve the people around me I'll be able to do it with the Lord on my and side and the spirit all around.
Oh yeah, my companion is a very big man and is tough. So don't worry I am safe. But everyone here is super happy to be here so I love just talking to everyone.
Thank you so much for being my amazing parents. You have taught me so much. Some things that I know the other Elders are "like what"!
Tell cousin Tyler that he was right about the Orange Juice. It is bad news bears! A couple of the Elders have got the sickness of the juice. haha!
You guys are amazing and I love you. I'll send pictures next week. I forgot to take my camera down stairs to up load the photo's and share what my companion and other Elders in my group look like. There are 4 sisters and 4 elders in my district. They are all nice and awesome and super in tune with the spirit. All of us are going to the same mission. I think that at least ten new missionaries are leaving to go to the Georgia Atlanta North mission. WOW that was awesome to find out that I wasn't the only one going out. There will be at least ten new Greenies going to be out there.
There is so much spirit here it is crazy amazing! I will try my best to be the missionary that is of legend. Well maybe just a good missionary. Tell Jordan one of my teachers served in the same mission as him and at the same time as him. Sister Polman or Palmen--something like that. But she was like awesome and I should tell you I know her.
I hope you guys aren't too "Cameran Sick" (Like the opposite of homesick)
