The MTC is so hard at first! I just want to make that clear haha. Such a blessing to have all my friends here who I see every day! I will send pictures next week because I need to get an SD Card reader from the store. Good news! On my license to preach the gospel it says I'll be home on July 17th 2018. I am so excited and grateful to be
a missionary! The Spanish is so hard and overwhelming we have to memorize so much. The gift of tongues is so real though! We taught our first lesson in Spanish yesterday and I randomly started saying things and our investigator prayed! So grateful because I know my Father in Heaven is taking care of me every day! My companion is elder T from Oklahoma. He is really nice but we aren't very alike haha. I'll send you pictures of my journal next week so you can see my thoughts on a day-to-day basis. All you need to know is I am a little homesick, the MTC is an amazing place, and that this Gospel is true! I am gonna be working so hard to get the
language and I know it will come! Thank you for the packages, letters, and all the support!
I am headed to the temple after lunch and we teach our second lesson tonight! Crazy!
