Ben had time to spend individually with each of his siblings. It was a good Tuesday. I don't think he'll ever realize the impact he had on them that day. They will remember that day for sure as he really went out of his way to make them feel special.
Oh, and all of these computers are in Linex. It is kinda
cool and if we have any questions about anything, we just ask our DL, the
programmer. He is super into stuff like this. Sorry for sending so many emails,
the pictures that the camera was taking were massive. I turned down the res a
little bit so I can get more pictures per email and get more pictures per SD
Card. Still love it here!
The food is pretty good! The picture with all of the Elders
is a picture of our room. We are going to get a district picture later today,
but haven't gotten one yet. So thatll be coming next time I send an
Im in the laundry
room right now and the Elders next to me just pulled out their white shirts and
garments out of the wash. One of them left a black pen in the shirt... And now
all of their shirts are stained black. Its kind of funny.
First of all, the church is true. Second of all, just try
your best in everything that you do and whatever you cannot do, He will make up
for. I am learning so much and it is fantastic. My companions name is Elder
Malm. He is kind of a quiet guy, but he has a heart of gold and a spirit of
love. He also plays basketball very well and hes from Colorado. We get along
very well and he wants to work. My district is fantastic. I love my district.
We have shared so many insights in the Gospel so far. Our district leader is
named Elder Hilton. Matthew, hes a 23 year old computer programmer and he is
super smart. Josh moved in yet? Tell him to get on it! That room is for the
I saw Connor Bird on the first day, but we didn't get a
picture or anything. I've seen him around a few times. Chase Bennett, Cayden
Christensen, few other Elders from our Stake, and then a bunch of other guys
that I know from school. It honestly is like Davis High School all over again.
There are so many people here. This last group that came in with me is the
largest group that has come in this year with close to 750 Elders.
Im in the laundry room right now and the Elders next to me
just pulled out their white shirts and garments out of the wash. One of them
left a black pen in the shirt... And now all of their shirts are stained black.
Its kind of funny. I'll try to get some of my pictures to upload so I can send
another email, but I have to run back to residence because I forgot the cable.
I brought the camera, but wasn't thinking...
I love the MTC and have learned more in two days than I did
in 4 years of Seminary combined. The Gospel is true. Pray! I've also learned
that more often than not, the Lord is waiting for us to act before we can
receive those blessings that He is waiting to give us.
It's done. We rolled up and he rolled out. The last two days felt we all had been kicked in the stomach. I don't wish this experience on anyone. Next to loss of kin, I don't think there is anything that feels like this. I know we will all be better for it and he is in the right place. The best part is.....he knows it too.
