2nd MTC Letter: July 20,2010

Hey family, how is everything goin? Things here are good, im getting this mtc thing down haha. The food is good, i can't really complain. My companion is Elder Shelton he's pretty kool, he's from the ogden area, kinda by pleasentview. My District is awsome, Elder Thatcher is from Salt lake, he went to east high. Everyone else is from Oregon,Arizona,Texas,and New Mexico.
Let Steph know i got the talk and i love it, i love getting letters from her and everyone else.
Thank tom for, writing me it was kool to hear from him.
Can you do me a favor and forward my emails so the fam can see em?
Well everything is good, im learning so much its crazy! Another crazy thing is i got my travel plans. I leave on the 27th (7 days!!!!). I leave at 10:50 am to Atlanta, then at 7:25 pm leave to Johannesburg, then leave for Durban on South African Airways. So its pretty much a 24 hour flight. My companion is goin to the same mission as well as 3 other Elders and 2 of em are in my room.
I don't know if i told ya but i did see Elder Bird (nathan) we talked for a lil while. I got pictures with Russel a friend from riverton at the temple, that was pretty kool. I see some of my friends but not too often.
I ordered a South African shirt at the book store and it is pretty tight im excited to get it.
Gym is fun, they closed the inside gym so i can't play ball and show people my skillz but thats ok, i get to play softball and soccer and that is always fun!
As of right now i don't need anything, i hope it stays that way for 2 years but ya never know, umm my contacts are good i haven't had to change them yet and i have had no problems. :)
My P day is on tuesday.
Well i gotta get goin they don't give you a lot of time to use the computer which is lame, oh well.
The work is good. I love you all. Here is a kool message i received at a LGM (large group meeting) " If you always do, what you've always done, you'll always get, what you've always gotten.

First Letter from the MTC: July 13, 2010

Hey family. How is everything? Im sorry to hear about the van, maybe dad will get a sweet car now.
Before i get into my letter can you tell the Marvive family thank you for the letter, and tell them sorry that i couldn't write them back, i've been sooooooooooooo busy.
So spain won, that is way kool, i totally called it. :)
My 1st day at the mtc was very overwhelming, and i had a hard time, but the next day my branch president gave me some good advice and sence then everything has been going good.
I saw Nathan yesterday, and i also saw Fine Fenga and Taylor Van. It was so awesome to see some people i knew. :)
Keep sending me letters, i love them, i don't have a lot of time to write back but i will as often as i can.
Everything is good with my companion his name is Elder Shelton. My branch is amazing the sisters are so smart and helpful.
umm im still getting use to how everything here works here, but it will come in time. Im struggling with my teaching skills, but everyday i am improving.
I have ny purpose memorized along with D&C 4, and the first vision. So im glad i could get those memorized. Oh ya i get to pass the sacrament next sunday! how kool! :)
Thank you for updating me on the sport stuff, i told everybody in my room the sport updates and they go crazy so its awesome.
So far i've had no problems besides not feeling good enough to be here spirtualy.
Thank you for the package, i love the South Africa pin and praclet thing. I found out that there are closing the gym, so i can't play basketball anymore so that sucks a little but oh well, we still get to play softball outside which is awesome.
Sorry for being everywhere in my letter, i got so much going on in my head right now it is crazy. Tell Steph to keep writing me on dear elder, i love receiving mail.
Mom and Dad i love you and miss you as well as the rest of the family. Tell everyone that i am doing very well, im learning so much its crazy.
I wish i could write more but i am running out of time, so i hope all is well back at home. Let all the nephews and neices know that i love them and miss them.
I love you. <3
