Our Distric at the MTC
We just finished our first week at the MTC! Wow, what a week. We have been taught, trained, role played, critiqued and examined; and we are exhausted We have nearly froze to death running from building to building in the sub zero temperatures. It was minus 7 yesterday morning. The senior missionaries are all wonderful. They come from all over the US and Canada, and are going all over the US and all over the world.
