WEEK 3 MTC

August 10, 2017

Hello everyone.  Another great week in the MTC.  The news for the week is Elder Bednar came and that was amazing. So fun to have an apostle come.  I became district leader this week and I am learning a ton from it.  It requires me to be on top of things a lot more but I’m grateful for the opportunity to do it.  In the Tuesday devotional a big thing was put one foot in front of the other.  I love all the elders in my zone. We do everything together and laugh a ton.  I am really excited to be heading to Norway in 18 days.  Can't believe it’s almost here. Let’s hope I get a lot better at the language before then.  Everything is great and I'm still loving being a missionary.

Hey Mom. I am just going to say this first so I don't forget but will you send me some more church socks and could you send me a green tie? Kind of like the red one we ordered before I left.  Another great week in here. I have been the district leader since Sunday and it's fun but a lot of work.  The thing that surprised me most was that I would laugh as hard as I do at night with the Elders.  We literally fall to the ground laughing so hard.  The thing I don't like is how long the days are and how short the weeks are.  Days take forever and weeks go by way fast. Fridays and Saturdays are the hardest days of the week, but once I get through those it’s nice.  Yes! I am getting lots of letters. I'm still loving it. It's long but great. Have a great week! Love you.

Dresden is the latest buddy to be in the MTC.

Hello everyone. What another amazing week here in the MTC. Fun to see some of you coming through on the tours.  I had the opportunity to be in charge of the beginning part of the tour for a day which I absolutely loved. 

This week was filled with many lessons and TRC's but I love them so much. Planning lessons in Norwegian can be stressful but it helps us learn so much. I've just always got to remember that I know more than I think I do.  

It's a lot of fun being in a branch with all of the Swedish Elders. They are all awesome and it’s fun to get to know them.
We had the general Relief Society President come and talk to us on Tuesday and her big thing she talked about was that we as missionaries are helping people truly see and know who they are.

It really encourages us to do our best and work as hard as we can as missionaries. I love it and I love being a missionary.

Week 1 -MY FIRST LETTER HOME FROM THE MTC - July 27, 2017

Week 1 - P day's are Thursday for me in the MTC.  

Hey everyone! What a week here in the MTC! I don't know where to start. First thing, my first companion is awesome. His name is Eldste Cribbs and we get along really well and work very well together. He is from Seattle and he brought a violin and can play any song you can think of. It's like our way of listening to music.  The first couple of days are absolutely crazy but very spiritual and great. We have about 7 hours of language class every day and our teachers only speak Norwegian.  Just after 2 days here we had to teach a 30 minute lesson in Norwegian. It was very difficult but we are learning as it goes.  We have taught 4 lessons now in Norwegian and are improving every time.  There are 5 Eldstres and 5 Sostres going with us to Norway.  My district is great and we all laugh and get along really well.  I love the devotionals here and how much you can learn and grow just after one week on the mission. My dad was right when he said exercise time is the best. We switch off from beach volleyball to basketball every other day. It’s only for an hour but it’s a very well needed break.  The language is very difficult and has lots of weird ways to pronounce the same letter.  It's a lot of fun actually being able to communicate with each other in another language.  We watched the character of Christ talk given by Elder Bednar.  It really teaches missionaries to love and care for those we teach. On Tuesday we had a talk given to us by Don Clark.  He talked about how missionaries really need to work hard and how they’re so many ways to bring people closer to Christ.
Waking up on P day is like waking up on Christmas morning.
My p days are Thursdays so I will do my best to keep up on emailing.
I love it here and I love being a missionary!

Ordained a Missionary and MTC drop off

Easton was ordained a Missionary on Tuesday, July 18th and entered the MTC on July 19th.  He was so ready and excited to begin - we dropped him off a little early.  So neat to see the new MTC and drop him off underground surrounded by so many missionaries.

Who will be taller when Easton get's home?






Hard to say good bye.
