Two days down at the MTC!

It's been a very full two days! We arrived yesterday about 10 a.m., and have been going full steam ever since. We have met some incredible people and instructors. We have spent most of our time studying from Preach My Gospel to learn how to best invite others to come unto Christ. We have been so impressed with these young instructors and the spirit they invite.

Australia here we come!

We took the traditional picture of us at the map, and we also learned that we are the largest group of senior missionaries they have had at the MTC! It is so cool we get to be a part of it!!

Last night we watched a Christmas devotional given by Elder David A. Bednar in which he taught us to think outward and focus on others instead of ourselves, and that that is how we become more Christlike. Tonight there was a devotional with all the missionaries and we had Elder Craig C. Christensen from the Presidency of the Seventy speak to us and we learned about "Taking Christ's Yoke Upon Us", and that being yoked together, pulling together and the strength we get from each other is how we can help bring people to Christ.

It's been an incredible two days, the food....not so much!!! Especially breakfast today. I think I'm headed to the cold cereal bar tomorrow.

Brent was made District Leader right off the bat! I had a feeling it was going to be him the second they announced they were choosing them. He's done a great job making everyone feel comfortable. We are loving the spirit we feel here and the people.
