The MTC (missionary training center) is the hardest fun I've ever had. Learning Portuguese isn't super easy but I'm grateful that I don't have to learn an Asian language. My district has learned a lot of Portuguese for only being here 5 days.
There were 720+ other missionaries that reported here the same day I did. Nothing other than the gospel of Jesus Christ would get so many people to give up 18-24 months of their life. It's so cool seeing missionaries coming from all over the world (there's a Nigerian Elder and Australian sister just in my district) and hearing where everyone is going. The gospel truly is being spread to the four quarters of the earth. I've only been here 5 days and my testimony of the gospel and the Book of Mormon have already been strengthened so much.
Love you all!
