I love it here, I really do! The first few days were rough at times, but after Sunday I felt like a switch flipped in my brain and I just started to love it. The truest words ever spoken to pre-missionaries are JUST MAKE IT TO SUNDAY! Because after Sunday time just started to fly!
My companions are great! I'm in a trio with Sister Hunt and Sister Osburn. They are both lovely and I feel so lucky. Our district is incredible, too; I feel like all the little Elders (most of them just graduated from high school) are my brothers! Four of them are going to Wisconsin with my trio, and the other two are going to Texas Houston South with two other sisters in our district. There are 11 of us total. It has been a lot of fun to see how relationships grow when you're all stressed out and lonely together! Haha.
As far as learning goes, I feel like I make lots of mental breakthroughs every day! I am so lucky to be teaching in English! I thank Heavenly Father for it all the time! I have a lot to work on with my teaching, but I like how we get to practice on "investigators" here and I really feel like I have grown. The spirit at the MTC is so strong and I have prayed harder here than I've ever prayed before! I've also studied the scriptures harder and I can already feel a difference in my relationship with Heavenly Father and my confidence in sharing the gospel.
This morning we got to go to the temple and do an endowment session, which makes today the BEST DAY EVER!!!! I loved getting a chance to sit in the celestial room and pray and just feel peace about what I'm doing. I love wearing my little black name tag; I love being a missionary!
Thank you all for your DearElders and your love and prayers! I always knew missionaries loved mail; I never quite understood how much! Mail time is the best time of the day, always! So thank you to those who wrote me!
My next p-day isn't til the 22nd of June I think, in Wisconsin! So it will be a while!
To mom, could you please forward this to all the people it needs to go to? I definitely don't have a list of people's emails haha. Love you all!
p.s. I can't send pics now but hopefully I will be able to soon!
