Another week down and I feel like I’ve been here for an eternity, seriously.
You learn so much, grow so much and you feel the spirit constantly. It’s amazing. They say the MTC is the same spirit that you feel in the Temple, and if that is so, I must’ve just become accustomed to it aha.
After emailing you all last week, I was able to attend an endowment session at the Preston Temple – it is so beautiful ! I was able to attend with three other districts and it’s such a humbling experience going through for other people’s answers. We have investigators here which are our teachers being people that they came in contact with on their missions, and so I went through with the mentality of helping them. Really great !
On Wednesday, the whole MTC, so 57 of us, went on an excursion to all the Church history sites, such as the river where the first baptisms were and things. It was sooooooo nice to get outside of the MTC and just enjoy England. Everyone is so tired though and so any chance where we don’t have anything assigned, everyone just sleeps. Refer to one of the photos I have attached of everyone sleeping on the bus. Except me, I seem to be way too enthusiastic most of the time.
The other days are somewhat a blur, as we were just so busy with learning the fundamentals of the doctrine, preparing for our investigators and reading the Book of Mormon, but Sundays are always uplifting. There are always assigned talks of which we find out the day of, and there was much relief for me as I was asked to give the opening prayer. The meeting was about the Book of Mormon and there were amazing testimonies. An Elder shared his testimony after he lost his Brother this week, and everyone was in tears. He is so strong and all the Sister Missionaries are coming together as a sweet as Relief Society to write him a letter. We are all so close here, and it will be sad next week to leave them all, but we all will move forward and be valiant.
I am so sorry that this is super short – I have had technical difficulties, however I would like to leave on the note that God is our Heavenly Father and we don’t need a testimony of all things, but know we are children of God with divine potential. 1 Nephi 11:17.
