Well everything is so exciting here at the MTC!! Just a few facts for everyone. This is not a very big MTC. There are 32 missionaries (from 20 different countries) and we have a very close relationship with everyone, especially our president. Our MTC president is President Edwards. As we went down the line and introduced ourselves, when it was my turn, in front of everyone, he starting telling me that I was at a stake conference where he presided, that he called my uncle to be bishop, that he called my stake president, and that he knows and loves my father and family :) It was nice.
A little bit about my companion. Her name is sister Lesuma she is from Fiji. She is just the sweetest thing ever!! I just love her to pieces :) Many people have said that as I came out, I would see history changed and I already have. My district is the first ever fully sister district. There is Sister Beck (from Utah), Sister Schollars (from Idaho), Sister Pennock(from Bath, England), Sister Bruzzo (from Paris, France), Sister Melville (from Scotland) and Sister Norin (from Sweden). We all have so much fun. There are actually two fully sisters districts because there are only 10 elders in the whole MTC. They had to call a sister training leader for my district and it ended up being me. I was called on Friday and its been fun and a lot to handle all at once. We have amazing teachers.
Do you remember that blog dad showed me? Well, one of her companions (Sister Matapo) is one of my teachers!! She is awesome. Another teacher assigned to our district is Brother Toropainen. He is just off his mission as of 2 months and is a little freaked out being surrounded by 8 sisters. Hahah! But we all get along well, its fun :) Another teacher is Brother Walsh and he is just awesome. If we are confused about anything he is really good about helping us understand. He gets involved and down on our level really well. He also is a tease and its fun (He reminds me of Craig a bit. Its just that his teasing is all words, where Craig's is more hugs hahaha). We have been learning so much and its a blast. I feel the Spirit so much. I had no idea my testimony could grow so much, but I also didn't know that we could be brought so low and already be at this point. We just got back from the temple and it was amazing. We might get to go one more time before we leave next Wednesday. Tomorrow morning we get to go finding in Manchester. Pray for me. It sounds scary from what other missionaries have said.
There are so many different accents here. The first day my head was spinning trying to comprehend all of them in just seconds. I guess in Scotland our last name is pronounced Mackay where it rhymes with sky. I have been told that fact 20 times a day (a lot every day). I am also told that I need to learn how to speak English, and that British English is proper. I've also been told every English American joke you can think of. That's all I can think of to say!! It's so beautiful. I can't figure how to send pictures but I wish I could
I love you all. Remember the church is true,
