Hey family! just wanted to let you guys know that I am here safe at the MTC! I don't have very long but its been an awesome first day! I met a bunch of really cool returning missionaries from California and got some advice from them. I also got to visit with a man from the Marshall Islands while I was at the Salt Lake airport. He served his mission in Seattle four years ago. HE was such a cheery great guy. He was from a family of all converts and now four of his siblings and him have gone on missions!! shows you how much each soul means to our heavenly father. He gave me a pastry and we talked about missionary work for an hour. Its been such a great day. For the shuttle i met two sisters (one from edmonton and one going to cebu) and then four elders from south Korea! Its been super cool so far. Missionaries are awesome people. Love you all! Ill write you guys later in detail when I have more time.
