MTC Week 1: Hello Real World

So here are the questions:

1.  Tell me all about your companion (name, where from, etc)
her name is Sister DeWidt (dee-witt) she is from Gilbert, Arizona and we already had a belching contest hehe ;)

2.  How are you two getting along?
we get along really well she is such a sweet heart and has an amazing spirit about her. I am doing the best I can, she is truely amazing and I love her and she has helped me open up a lot.  I'm most definitley not shy or afraid to be in front of people anymore, the MTC has helped me overcome that I have more confidence in myself then ever before.

7. Describe a normal day for a sister missionary in the MTC?
A normal day of a sister missionary is pretty simple, we wake up and have our prayers and eat then we head to class and do personal study and then companion study and then 4 hours of class, we are usually in class 10 to 14 hours a day.

8. Did you get your package?
I have not yet received a package but our District leader Elder Perkis, he is from Leads England he has done really well with picking up the mail.

9. What is your favorite thing about the MTC?
the spirit here is my favorite, sometimes it feels like your stuck in a bubble, but it helps alot to be separated from the real world.

Day headed to MTC-she wanted a BURGER.  Any Guesses where?

Jumping for Joy!!

Packed and ready to go!

Her Dad's big girl!

10. What other awesome thing can you share?
SO elder Perkis is from england has an accent and everything, I broke down the other night because i was struggling with homesickness and companionship issues, and i prayed more than i have ever prayed before in my life and had a strong impression to get a blessing form elder perkis, so i am still waiting to ask our branch president to do that.
