First off, thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes and packages! It was a pretty fantastic day :) The Elders in our district would let everyone know it was my birthday when we walked from place to place so I got lots of songs and happy birthday wishes in many different languages. It was pretty cool!This week has all just blurred together and I have come to accept the fact that I am just going to be tired for the next 18 months of my life. But it's a good tired! Means I am actually doing something productive with my life once in a while. So this week, lots of people left on Tuesday so the place was super empty Tuesday until Wednesday night and then it got even more crazy! There were over 900 missionaries that entered the MTC this Wednesday! I heard it got close to 1,000 and they are expecting even more next week. How crazy is that?! It's so fantastic. Last week, I forgot to mention that Sis. Hartzfeld and I were assigned as Sister Training Leaders last Thursday and we are like Zone leaders except over the sisters in our branch. So on Tuesday, we were asked to meet a sister that was coming into the zone from Australia and she was our third companion all Tuesday until the rest of her district arrived on Wednesday. It was fun to introduce someone to the MTC and show them around and stuff. Weird to think that that was us last week! Then on Wednesday we went in during their ward meeting with the zone leaders and gave some rules and tips and then gave them a tour of the campus. Even though we are only a week older, it was fun to take care of the 'new kids' and still to see them around the residence hall and stuff.
Love you all! Thanks for the letters and I will get back to you as soon as possible!
I just had to get a picture like Curtis's!
