Letter 5 October 19, 2016 Last letter from the MTC!


This week has been so great! A lot of studying, but that is nothing new. 
Yesterday, Sister Oscarson (Young Women's President of the Church) came to the MTC! She came and talked to my district, but I was in a lesson, so I didn't get to talk to her... I was pretty upset, but then, she came into the cafeteria to eat dinner with the missionaries. She sat RIGHT NEXT TO ME! She was so nice! She asked about my life and where I grew up. She said she has been to Lexington several times, and she adores it! She gave me a hug afterwards and told me to heal quickly haha! Way cool! 

Here at the MTC, I have learned so much. I have come to understand the role of the Savior, and the importance of the Atonement. I am so excited to go out and teach the people of southern Arizona the Gospel. It is so crazy to think that I leave in just a few days!! I leave the MTC at 2:30 am on Tuesday morning. They had us pack up everything in our suitcases and weigh them so that we'll be set and ready to go. I don't feel ready whatsoever, but I guess you'll never actually be ready. If I left the MTC when I was ready, I would be here for about 2 years haha! I know that the Lord will make up the difference, and will help me through all trials. I am so excited to start my work in Arizona. This will be the greatest adventure, and I am happy I have the Lord beside me through it all!

Sé que Dios nos ama. (I know that God loves us)

I love you all! I'll talk to you all soon! 
Arizona, here I come!

Questions from Mom

How is your arm feeling? Is it feeling better? Has the cast felt tight because of it being swollen?
My arm is feeling pretty bad still. I have been on a post-surgery pain killer, but even that doesn't seem to work all the time. 

And what were you doing playing volleyball anyway? :P  I think there are lessons on obedience happening before your eyes!
My district and I always play volleyball during exercise time! Because I am not allowed to jump, I just play in the back row. Now, my district lets me serve the ball with my left hand haha! They take turns throwing the ball up in the air for me, and I underhand serve it with my left hand!

So you leave the MTC on Tuesday, Oct 25th so how come you said your last day to write home is on Wednesday, Oct 19? So what will you be doing on Friday if it’s not your P-day? 
I will just have normal classes on Friday! My P day was moved to Wednesday just for our last week.

Did you get the pictures I had that service in Mexico make for you? I got an email that says you got them. :)
I did get all the prints! I showed them to my district! I am going to need another little photo album!!
