Hey, sorry it's taken so long to write you! My p-day is on Wednesday here in the MTC! I don't have much time to write you so I will get as much in as I can! So much happens here in one day, let alone a whole week! The first day I had an embarrassing experience but it was funny too! It was about 3 hours after I was here and we had to teach an ''investigator'' in front of the whole class! I had to be the missionary with my companion and it was a door approach. He said he was a Christian and asked if we were too. I said, ''we are also Catholic" but I meant to say 'Christians.' ha, ha!   I caught myself though, but it was too late. The whole room was already laughing! But anyways, I love it here! 

I have learned so much about the gospel and I have grown so much spiritually. My companion's name is Elder Pineault (pee-no). He speaks French and is from Quebec, Canada! He is going to my same mission! My district is so cool. Everyone in here has their own personality and we all get along! I have only known them for a week but we all feel like family already. It's probably because we spend 16 hours a day with each other though!! Yesterday my companion and I had to teach a real investigator in this thing called TRC, where we go to a different building. The investigator's name was Alexandre, and he was a tall black guy. It was so amazing to see how much joy we brought to him when we taught him the gospel. I know I have Elder Pineault as my companion for a reason because we work SOOO well together! I wish I could tell you more but I hardly have any time at all to email! Anyway, I love it here!

Thank you so much for everything you sent me and that you and dad are doing for me!  I am so blessed to have you as my parents and am so thankful for all the support you give me! I couldn't do any of this without you! I love the dress shirts you sent me and the ties! They are just what I wanted/needed! Also thank you for the contacts, Dad! Tell Rachelle congrats on her cheer competition and to keep it up! When you get time, could you send me Josh's email, a photocopy of my call (for when I go to Canada), a normal short sleeve t-shirt (for gym time... all I have are thermals!), and a picture of my sisters to hang up in my room?? :)

Thank you again for all you do and the sacrifices you are making for me! :) I love you all!
