Life in the MTC
Coming to the MTC has been a great experience! We have been well fed physically (too well fed!) and spiritually well fed! It has been so fun to meet so many senior missionaries as well as young missionaries. We have run into former students, fellow Rexburg folks, and met a lot of new friends. The teachers are well trained and amazing. The speakers are extremely motivating, and I am impressed with the knowledge and testimony of my companion. Tomorrow we will leave this sacred place of tremendous faith, enthusiasm and excitement. We have focused on "Preach My Gospel" this week, and although we will not be serving a proselyting mission, the skills and principles we have learned will be very valuable. Now we will start our training for the Self-Reliance Intiative. We will be headed to the Church Office Building for this, and so we will be spending the rest of our time in Salt Lake City until we leave for France, Thursday, August 18.
