So far so good! We're all gearing up to leave on monday! pretty crazy! weve been teaching a lot! again, they are just people acting, but its still really cool to be teaching! someone told us that before this new system, missionaries taught about twice while here at the MTC, weve taught at least 20 times so far! I think most of us feel pretty ready to go out and teach real people! We taught Junichi, our shinto friend, a couple more times since my last email. He's awsome! and i think hes getting more and more interested. We've taught him most of the plan of salvation and the restoration, and he wants to know more about the BoM! Its pretty cool to experience because he has 0 christian backgroud. I wish he was actually a real person (lol, i know this sounds weird, but this is whats going on in my life lol, MTC makes you crazy i think). Speaking of going crazy in the MTC, we heard a rumor that there was an earthquake in DC? when things like that happen i would like details please lol. We're going to the temple today and we went last week as well! its a lot of fun to go as a missionary with a bunch of other missionaries. We have devotionals every tuesday and sunday, they are all really good but no big names yet, we're hoping for an apostle tonight lol. I havnt had to speak in church yet, and i think this week is testimony meeting, so i think i might have escaped :) Thank you all for the letters! they are the highlights of my day. it takes about 3 days to get a letter from ohio to here, so if you want to catch me in utah, today is probs the day to send that. if not you can look on facebook for my address in nevada, or DearElder works even when im in nevada i think. you might have to pay though, idk. All of you should know im typing this with a keyboard that has no letters on it, and since i normally cant type without looking at the keys its kinda tough lol. Ummmm, what else do i have to tell yall? We play sand volleyball everyday, they have ginger ale here, the missionaries in my district love 90's boy bands, all those are my favorite things! so lifes good :) Ive been reading about the last supper and the Garden of Gathsemene, Christ is AWSOME! I love teaching people about him b/c everyday i realize more and more how awsome he is!
