First Letter from the MTC!

Well the good old first day. SO CRAZY! But absolutely wonderful.  After you guys dropped me off, I went in and got my name tag and schedule.  Then they dropped off my clothes and such and then we went to our classroom.  My teachers are so NICE and we get along really well because our sense of humors work well together.  I was in the room with them, just us, for like 20 minutes so it was good to get to know them.  I met my companion, who is going to Perth, and she is absolutely wonderful!  She is so down to earth.  She is beautiful and she is so kind! We really hit it off.  It definitely is a tender mercy that we get along so well.  There are 6 elders and 6 sisters in our district and we are going to Sydney, Perth and California Ventura mission.  And another great tender mercy is Sister Tanner (her cousin) is in my DISTRICT! It is such a great blessing to have her there.  Our district gets along really well and I am so grateful for that.  We met the MTC Pres. & wife after a meeting which was nice and they are really sweet.  Then we ate in the good ole cafeteria.  We then had our first teaching experience.  There were 3 investigators and there was a big group of newbie missionaries with us.  We taught a girl first.  It was so hard.  She kept pushing us down with everything we would say, and we were all over the place!  SUPER CRAZY!  Then we taught a guy and his wife. They were so much better.  What you would call the Golden Investigator.  We taught one last guy and he had recently lost his wife.  And he loves nature, so we taught him how he would be able to see her again.  I could definitely feel Heavenly Father's love for all of them and for me.  I loved how I would feel prompted by the spirit to share what needed to be said.  The spirit is an AMAZING gift and I am so grateful for it!  We then met our Zone Leaders and ended the day.  It was an amazing day! I love the MTC!  I love the people here and the wonderful spirit that is here!  I am so grateful for a great companion who I know that Heavenly Father has blessed me with.

This gospel is amazing!  I am so grateful to be a missionary.  I know the church is TRUE!

I love you all so much!  You are amazing!  I'm so glad I get to spend eternity with my amazing family.


P.S. My P-day is Wednesday here, and I leave the MTC Tues Mar. 26th that night or Wed. morning.  Not exactly sure.

Hi Lexie,
Not sure you will get this message, but sure loved reading your letter to your family. Your positive attitude about your teachers, the MTC, your companion, the investigators and all was amazing to read. You are in my prayers each day.

Love you
