I’m sorry in all these letters if my grammar or spelling is crazy, it’s just because I have to type at the speed of light in order to get everything done. But yes, I shared my testimony in sacrament meeting and made this big tongan kid cry which was cool. I like making people cry. Only the good kind though.
I’ve also gained five pounds the food here I LOADED with calories, oils, fats, and MSG. My mother isn’t going to be super happy about that. Mom it’s also all GMO. The church is supporting GMO! I’m sorry I didn’t bring my journal to the lab so I can’t really tell you any stories except for one. In class we were getting a lesson on the holy ghost and how to use it and how to always have it with us and being a valuable tool in the mission field. So at the end of each lesson The teacher asks us “So now what?” So I raised my hand and said “I’m going to try really hard to be a tool.” The teacher choked back a laugh and said “Yes we need to work really hard to be Instruments in God’s hands.” That’s when I realized what I said and bust out laughing in the middle of the spiritual moment. So, last year I didn’t call my Mom on her birthday and this year I didn’t call my Mom on her birthday. I’m the worst son ever, but I have a better excuse this time. So today I’m leaving the MTC it’s really weird because I feel like I got here yesterday. I’m learning so much, but it’s not the kind of learning you can take notes on or learn from a textbook. The learning I’m experiencing is the spirit changing me. I feel like a different person. I honestly can’t remember much about what I learned in class. It’s just how I grew. The times I learn most are at the end of the night when I talk to my Father that knows me better than I do. That’s when I learn. I love praying. It is a wonderful experience. I’ve noticed the way I pray changing. I honestly think about what I’m going to say all day. I take detailed notice of things I can do better at and repent of, things that I’m thankful for, and questions or concerns I think about, and every night I pray and I grow and I bond with my Heavenly Father. This mission has changed me so much because I have learned how to pray. How to truly, sincerely pray. I feel so powerful.
