The week of arriving to the MTC

Family! 

The MTC is amazing! its an amazing experience, and a bit of a whirlwind. We have been here 2 and a half days but it feels like its been here at least 2 weeks. We work nonstop basically every day, and its a lot to take in, but we get it done with a smile! We take every extra minute we have to study, and I'm basically always reading.

Me companero es Elder Froerer, and hes a really cool guy. We get along really really well, we might as well be best friends. Basically everything he struggles with i am good at, and everything i struggle with he is good at, so we learn a lot together, and get along well.

The language is amazing! i cant believe how much i have learned in  only 3 days, its amazing. The gift of tongues definitely has helped everyone in my district immensely. The teachers haven't spoken anything in english, its full immersion, and its stinkin hard. They claim that anglais no existie. (however you spell English) Its tough, but its a lot of fun. And my district is amazing, we have so many amazing guys here, and we have a lot of fun. We all play basketball together on gym time and study together, its great.

Anyways, gotta keep it short cause I'm low on time today, but i love you all and look forward to your replies, keep me posted on what goes on in the outside world!
