Week 3 - Provo MTC



Hello Everyone!

      What a week.  The days are starting to fly by.  Which I'm alright with because the MTC is pretty boring. 

          The language is coming right along.  We've already learned how to pray and bear testimony in Polish, and I memorized My Purpose in Polish this week. It's definitely a very difficult language to learn.  The 7 cases Sam was talking about are definitely challenging.  Another hard thing is that there are about 5 words that I've learned so far that sound like their English equivalent.  It was a lot easier for German in high school because you had so many words that sounded familiar.  But it's going alright.  Still a long ways to go.

     Our zone is really small, and we are all going to different missions.  It's kind of cool because we get to know each other pretty well.  All the languages are pretty similar too.  We've heard that once we learn Polish, it will be pretty easy to understand Czech and Slovak, and we'll be able to kind of understand Ukrainian and Russian.  So that will be cool to try out with Kade and Kaden once we are all home.  

          I've been reading the Book of Mormon a lot lately.  I started over 2 weeks ago, and I'm already into Helaman.  It's going really well.  Probably my favorite part of the day.  The scriptures are powerful. 

          I read Alma 31:38 this week, which talks about Alma, Amulek, and the sons of Mosiah and their experience serving missions.  That helped me a lot.  Although difficult being away from right now, I feel that any adversity will pale in comparison to the joy when I finally see investigators make changes in their lives. 

          For service, we just kind of clean the buildings.  We mopped last week, and this week we switched out toilet paper.  Nothing too bad.  

          On Sunday we had Jenny Oaks Baker and her family speak and play music in our devotional and that was really good.  Then on Tuesday we had Joy D. Jones, the Primary General President, speak.  She talked about the love God has for us, and how we show our love for Him through obedience.  That was really good too.

          Anyway, things are going well.  I hope you are all doing well as well.  I love you all, and would love to hear from you!  Have a legendary week!
