|Leaving for the MTC|
We entered the MTC on Feb. 4, 2013. When we arrived we were given a room at the Marriott Hotel because the MTC was so full. We waited in line for everything we needed and then went to the church for our orientation meeting. The MTC Pres. spoke to us and welcomed us there. It was fun to meet so many new people. They were all so friendly and interested in us. They were from all over and they were going to so many different places and serving in so many different ways. We were assigned to a district. We had all of our classes with these four couples. They were very fun people and we learned much from them. We studied Preach My Gospel and prepared and presented lessons to volunteers. It was hard and we had to study and get out of our comfort zone, but we did it and felt really good about it. On Wed. when we were there 840 new missionaries arrived. This was the most missionaries to arrive in one day. It is wonderful to see how much the work is going to progress with all of the new missionaries.
