First week at the MTC

The MTC was a little overwhelming at first. The first few days went by REALLY FAST. Each day we (me and my companions) Sister Phelps and Sister Parks are on a set schedule. The schedule consists of classes filled with doctrinal study, role playing and a lot of testimonies. All of the teachers that they have here are Return Missionaries. So they have a clue what it's like out on a mission. They put us into Districts and Zones. It's pretty cool. I am the Music Coordinator. So I get to choose the hymns for Sacrament and the Musical Numbers. This Sunday I'll be playing the Flute. :) I'm also in the choir here. It's amazing.

It took some time for me to get used to my companions. We're all so different, yet the same. Sister Phelps is a red head and has a cute bubbly personality. Sister Parks is 5'10 and 120lbs and has an amazing testimony.

The other day, I found myself doubting my abilities. And I thought, "why would I doubt the abilities that the Lord has given me. I'm here because I love my Savior." After that class went by a little bit smoother. I wasn't as tense as I was when I first got here. It took a while. Surprising, isn't it?

The food here is okay. I mostly eat the fruits and the veggies though. . . along with the occasional cookie. :)

I'll be in Ohio next week. I'm excited and scared all at the same time. It's amazing. The next e-mail that you get, I'll be out in the field!! Isn't that crazy

Thank you for your prayers and your love. It truly means more to me than you know.
