|Our District at the MTC|
Our classes were from Preach My Gospel and we learned how to be a missionary and practiced giving lessons on volunteers who pretended to be investigators. The three of us single sisters were a threesome and we had two opportunities to teach. We also pretended to be a less active person/family and we took turns giving encouragement and lessons geared to each person and their specific situation. It was really fun and enjoyable. The spirit is so strong here. It is amazing to see hundreds and hundreds of young men and women all dressed in missionary attire and focused on learning languages and teaching lessons. We had a devotional on Tuesday evening in which Elder Bruce Carlson, of the Seventy spoke along with his wife. It was so good. He is a former general and was in the Pentagon on Sept 11th, 2001. They spoke of this event and since it was Sept 11th that day, it was very powerful. You should hear everyone singing Called to Serve. It is just Amazing!!!!

There were two other single sisters who I became wonderful friends with. We are all going different places and doing different things . Sister Osborne from St George going to Texas to work in the employment center and with humanitarian services. Sister Bass from Tennessee is going to Germany to work in the mission office. We have been able to be a threesome and its been very enjoyable.
|I am going to the Marshall Islands|
Tonight was very special. The senior missionaries who have been taking language training, had a testimony meeting. I bore my testimony in Marshallese. Others who were there bore testimony in Danish, Finnish, German, Spanish, and Russian. It was so wonderful. The spirit was so strong.
These are some of my cute grandchildren that I recently said goodbye to.
