Salama brothers and sisters!!!
I hope every one is having an amazing week filled with happiness and spiritual experiences!!!!
This past Sunday was our first "real" Sunday in the MTC and with my luck I was assigned to do everything -hahah- but I actually was assigned to do everything. First I was asked to give the priesthood lesson and I was happy to do it because priesthood lessons aren't that hard to do. Then Sunday came around and before church started I was asked to give the closing prayer in sacrament meeting. Okay, 2 things I can do. Sacrament started and next thing you know it I am at the sacrament table blessing the sacrament. At this point I was thinking gosh maybe the leaders think I need some help. The president gets up to the podium to call the speakers and what do you know the first speaker is the one and only -ME! Out of 45+ people in my zone the only assignment I wasn't given was playing the piano. That’s a good thing because I cant play the piano -haha. I don't know what I did to President, but he either really does not like me or I made an amazing first impression. We are just going with first impression.
Choir is the most amazing thing ever at the MTC!! Yes, thats right, the worst singer known to man(me) just said choir is the most amazing thing -haha.
The songs we sing fill the room with the spirit and they just warm your heart. The instructor makes it so much fun!!! He is so funny and knows how to make us all smile. If you are in the MTC or you will be here soon GO TO CHOIR!!!
Malagasy is coming surely, but slowly. I feel like I've learned so much but there is still so much more to learn. We teach lessons in Malagasy all the time and I feel like they all go very well. Our last lesson I actually understood most things my teacher was talking about and it made me feel really good. I'm not saying this to boast or to brag I'm saying this because it shows that the gift of tongues is real! We all know I'm not the brightest kid on the block so thank the heavens the gift of tongues is real.
I have 3 more weeks in the MTC. Time has flown by so fast but I'm still eager to get to Mada. Every time the teachers talk about their missions in Mada it makes me want to just get out of the MTC and start teaching and learning about this new culture.
