1st Pday!

Hey guys!

How have the last couple days been for you all? Mine have been great. Its so busy here in the MTC but its really good. I can see how people get overwhelmed really quickly here in the first couple days of being here. But I think the pace will slow down a little bit once we make it past Sunday. They really throw you into things here, only like 20 minutes into being here I was in a Cebuano class and the teacher only spoke in Cebuano. It was crazy. We have also had a lot of classes about how to teach people and about what our purpose is as missionaries. Its crazy to think that I'm actually here in the MTC now and that I am not going to be seeing any of you for two years. It hasn't really hit me yet I don't think. Maybe i am just crazy or something...but they have had us so busy its hard to just sit and think about home. 

My companion is named Elder Wayne and he is from a Navajo reservation in Arizona. He is super cool and he knows a lot about the mission life because he spent so much time with the missionaries before he came here. But we get a long just fine and i learn a lot from him. He was asked last night to be our District Leader so its kinda cool to have him as a comp. Our district seems big to me. There are like 6 other Elders going to the Cebu mission and 4 Sisters. So i was surprised to find out that there were so many others going there as well. I am super excited to just get out to the Philippines already! I hope these 6 weeks go by fast. My expected departure date to Cebu is October 16th. 

I got all situated in our residency hall just fine and got unpacked fine. Today is our P-day so i will be writing on Fridays! We went to the Provo temple this morning and did a few names from Elder Waynes family and then did a session. The Provo temple is so much bigger than the Denver one. It took a little bit to find everything in the temple but it was a great session as usual. 

But everything is great here! I hope everything is going good at home too! Write as soon as possible! :)

P.S.      Can you guys get me Duane and Nikkis email? I am living with an Elder who went to school with Codie and knows of the family! Such a small world haha.

Oh yeah and the computers wont allow me to send pictures so you'll have to wait  till I am in the Philippines for pictures...But yeah everything else is great. I am meeting some really cool people and loving it.

And don't be afraid to send a box full of just junk food or anything like that... :)
