IT IS TIME!!!

Today I leave for Bakersfield, CA. It is my temporary assignment and I’m very excited! I know this is where I am supposed to be right now and I can't wait to find out why.

Sorry, I haven’t done any emails I’ll get better. The at home MTC was so fun! I had an amazing experience. I have the coolest district ever and I’ll miss talking to them. It is really cool how you can become so close to people you have never met in person. One of the missionaries in our district just got his Visa, so they are going through. I know the Lord needs me to go to Bakersfield first.

Having my brothers around me was the best experience because they all made sure I always had someone with me and shared experiences with me. I was so lucky to have several of my friends who were also in the MTC. Seeing my friends go through this experience with me was really powerful. I am grateful for their example and they are going to be the best missionaries.

Through the MTC I was able to gain a very strong testimony just within those 6 weeks. I can’t wait to see how much stronger it gets in the next two years and having all the awesome experiences that are still to come.

I am so excited to serve for the people in California and Brazil. Thank y’all very much for the supporting me through everything!
