Our district also consists of another trio of Elders. There was supposed to be a 4th elder but he is from Canada and didn't get his visa yet. So it's just the 6 of us. We all get long really well and love to joke and laugh with each other. The other elders are Elder Slade (short brunette) who is our district leader and then Elder Hardman (the tall readhead) and Elder Cuthbert (the blonde) who are co-zone leaders.
We have truly been blessed here with good companions, district, zone, teachers, and branch presidency. I have been asked to be the Sister Training leader which is like the girl version of a Zone Leader. So it goes companions and then district and then zone. So it's pretty cool. I get to be in charge of and help all the sisters in the zone.
I have learned a lot so far being in the MTC. A huge thing I've learned is patience with myself and with the Lord. It's been really cool to learn all the doctrines of the gospel in a basic and simple way. I know for sure I take the church and the gospel for granted. I have really been trying to improve on my prayers and being more sincere with them. I have felt that relationship with my Heavenly Father grow as I have worked on that.
I don't have a lot of time but thanks to everyone who has written and sent packages. Letters are the best here at the MTC and on the mish. Please keep in touch and let me know how things are going.
Here's some pics of my district and my companions.
I hope all is well with everyone. Keep going to church, reading your scriptures, and saying prayers. If you don't do that already then do it!!! The gospel is what will bring us true and lasting happiness and joy in life!
