Hello family and friends!! I just want to start out by saying I wasn't able to write when I arrived at the MTC so don't feel like you got left out. lol. This is my third day and my P-day will always be on Fridays and I hope that I will be able to get on around the same time.
I never knew how much I loved the gospel until I got to the MTC. In such a short time I have learned so much, how to talk to people and how to explain the gospel in a way that people will understand.
I have cried myself to sleep every night so far missing home and feeling alone towards the end of the night, but in my heart I know that I am exactly where I need to be. I cry all the time as it is, but having the spirit with you all the time is both a blessing and a curse.. mostly because I cry when I brush my teeth. lol. I hope everyone is doing good and I love you all.. I'm excited to keep learning and growing as time goes on. There is so much to do and so much class time and it's hard to stay focused sometimes but I manage. :) I am taking a reading class so it's just me and a teacher during personal study and we read out loud and go over words I may or may not understand. I feel like I am getting more comfortable reading aloud and I am able to understand the scriptures more. Elder Burgett is in my district so it's cool knowing someone from home. And we are always asked if we know each other. lol. Well, I love you all and I hope someone sees this so I can chat a bit.
love, sis. smith
