This is a long overdue e-mail letting you guys know that I made it to the MTC safely! Mama, I didn't have your phone number, so I couldn't make that two minute phone call that international kids are supposed to make the minute they enter the MTC... whoops.
Yesterday was when all the international missionaries came in, and we had classes together all day. I already feel fond of our small international group, and I almost wish that the normal missionaries weren't coming in today so we don't have to split. COOL FACTS: I was translating (albeit, very slowly) for three Japanese sisters in the morning. My first go at teaching the Restoration lesson was in Japanese! When they left, I was put into a companionship/group with Sister Lyu and Elder Li, both from Taiwan, and I got to practice some Chinese.
So many things happened on the first day, it'd be impossible to write it all down. But I will tell you guys that I LOVE IT ALL. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to show you, but I promise I will write a better briefing of all that's been going on later.
Apparently My p-days are on Friday, so I'll get back to you all in two days !
