Wow, it has been a full week at the MTC so far. And let me tell you, I LOVE IT SO MUCH! Arriving the first day was pretty hectic. I had get transported to the west campus on a shuttle, went from place to place getting situated and stuff. Before coming to the MTC I heard from people that the first days are the worst. But it hasn't been as bad as I thought.
At times, I feel alone and wonder why I even came out here. But then, I take a look around and realize all these missionaries have probably felt the same way.
It is so amazing on how much I have learned already. The third day in, we had to teach our first lesson to an investigator....IN 100% SPANISH! And my companion and I did it! Now we are already on our 4th lesson and have already got our investigator to commit to Praying, Coming to church, and keep some of the commandments. I can personally testify that the gift of tongues here at the MTC is such a real thing. The spirit is felt so strong here. I literally can't help but smile all the time.
I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve the lord. This is by far the greatest decision I have ever made in my life.
