“The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.” Joseph Smith, Jr.

Week 2 - Provo MTC
Can't believe it's email time again. This
week went by pretty quickly. I've been studying a ton, and I've learned
1. The scriptures are awesome!
2. Polish is really hard. But the gift of tongues is
It's kind of funny because I took 4 years of German in junior high
and high school, and while we are studying I will get German mixed in with all
the Polish. But yea things are going well. In our Tuesday
devotional, we had President Russell M. Nelson come speak. That was
really cool. He talked of missionary work in general. I'm also in
the choir and we sang Praise to the Man. That was such an amazing
experience. We have handball tournaments within our zone during exercise
time. Handball is like four square, so it's a ton of fun. The language is
coming along, slowly but surely. Last night we
finished planning, and we decided to watch a conference talk. I chose
Jeffrey R. Holland's "The First Great Commandment". It was way
cool. He is such a great speaker. If you all have the time, go and
watch it on lds.org. It helped me out a lot. The days are going by faster
and faster. I guess that's what happens when you're always busy.
Well that's about everything so far. Hope you are all doing well, and I'd
love to hear from you. Have an amazing week!
