Having a great week here at the MTC. A new district just came in yesterday to our zone its been amazing!
Last Wednesday after I emailed we have a normal afternoon until after dinner. They had a nativity for the MTC it was great after they showed the Nativity movie.
Christmas Day was amazing we woke up and went to a great breakfast then we had a Christmas Devotional Elder Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles came a spoke to us it was so amazing we were five rows from the pulpit center so it was amazing. After we had Christmas Dinner it was good reminded me of home but not as good!! After they had a great talent show with Elders and Sisters doing different things. After we went back to call home which was the first time Elders and Hermanas have been able to call home at the MTC. After we had a sack Dinner and District Testimony meeting which was very great. After we had a special Christmas Night program with some singers from the Christmas Carol Musical that preferences here in Provo and a student from UVU came and sang. After they showed the movie Ephraim Rescue. I was falling asleep most of the time though overall it was a great day.
Last Friday was a normal day mostly where supposed to teach our TRC investigator on Friday evening but he wasn't there. So there was a lady sitting in the lobby so my companion and I went and talked to her she spoke English and Spanish. It was so amazing talking to her she is getting baptized next week which is awesome.
Saturday was just a normal day of lessons.
Sunday was a great day. We had Priesthood in the morning we talked about the holy ghost. Then we had lunch after we had a great District meeting then sacrament meeting. This week in sacrament I helped pass the sacrament. The meeting was great. After we went on our snowy Temple walk. We had a massive snowball fight it was fun. The best is yet to come. Every Sunday and Tuesday night we have a devotional. Sunday David Archuleta and Richard Elliot (Mormon Tabernacle Choir organist) came. It was amazing Richard Elliott played 3 normal songs then 3 Christmas songs on the organ it was so amazing. David sang 6 or 7 songs also. He sang Glorious from Meet the Mormons Come come ye Saints and a few more it was amazing. And know the best part. Afterwords everyone was trying to shake his hand and I got to David wanted to shake as many missionaries had he could but security was telling him he had to leave. But it was cool.
Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday we have had just normal classes it been great overall.
I have taught about 10 times science I've been here. Its all been good so far though. The temple was closed today and I think it opens next week. I love and miss you all so much.
PS DON'T SEND ME EMAILS DURING THE WEEK BECAUSE I CANT CHECK THEM EVERYONE ELSE GETS LETTERS THROUGH DEARELDER.COM I THINK ITS FREE AND THEY PRINT IT OFF AT THE MTC AND I GET IT THE SAME DAY. USE THIS ADDRESS.
