First Week at the MTC

My first day at the MTC was great and yes I fit right in and was right where I wanted to be. The first week many people were struggling but I felt fine, sorry but I didn't miss home, I didn't question of wanting to be here or go back. I am right where I want to be and am so happy serving the Lord. 

My district is great and they are all going to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. So it will be sad when they all leave together and I am left alone. But I will probably get a new district.
My testimony has grown so much already, and I feel so blessed to be a servant of the Lord. I feel his love for me and the love he has for his children and it is infinite. I feel it thru me when I pray to Him. I feel exactly or at least a glimpse of what He feels for his children and it is miraculous and indescribable. It's incredible to see how quickly God answers your prayers when you are in his service. 

I love praying for the Holy Ghost to teach through me and help me teach. I love the love that I feel for the people I teach! I know that what I am sharing is true! I love this gospel so much and I love the Lord! I wish I could share with you everything I've learned and everything that I know and feel.  It is so much and so great and wonderful! Please don't stop praying. only thru prayer can we create that precious relationship with our Father in Heaven. He will help us, all we need to do is ask. I know it and I believe it. I have felt it!

Time is quickly creeping up on me

So time is creeping up on me pretty quickly... I have 4 full days left before I leave! Oh my goodness. This is crazy, is this really happening? I may be nervous but I am also super excited! The Lord has blessed me with an amazing opportunity to serve and teach the people of New Zealand. How many people get to do that? No, I won't get to swim there or vacation there(yet), but I will get to do the most important work that can be done on earth. I will be helping bring Salvation to souls, to many of God's children whom he loves. That right now sounds like a better opportunity and experience than vacationing does... at least at this point in my life. :)
 I am so excited to share the good news of the gospel with God's children! We can be cleansed from our sins because Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. Then once we are clean from our sins we will be worthy to live with our Heavenly Father again! Such wonderful news that is! :)

 I know it. I live it. I love it. I am a Mormon!
