Week 3

Hey fam,

This week flew by and i can't believe its already pday. This week has been a blurr and so im just gotta say a few things and make this short lol Today we were supposed to go to the temple but its closed for the next few weeks for cleaning. So we get to have a party and clean the temple today! YAY! haha but the provo temple is gorgeous so im excited. Also shout out to my cousins on their missions. Elder Magleby had his first baptism this week and Elder Togisala was just called to Zone Leader. I love them both and im so proud of the example that they have set for me and so many other people.

First off this is the last week we had with our district. Most of the guys leave on monday to go to the SLC south mission. its really bittersweet and im gonna miss them all! As for the girls we start Visitor center training on Tuesday! Im super pumped for that and know its going to be amazing experience. Next saturday we have the opportunity to go to the SLC visitor center at temple square. I know if the weeks fly by as fast as they have it'll be here by tomorrow!

As far as our investigators this week we got two new ones Diana and Dylan. Diana is the sweetest girl from Equador who moved here about 2 years ago to attend school at BYU. Her cousin was a member and referred her to the missionaries. She has had a few discussions but we talked to her about the plan of salvation and how her family can be together forever. She was overjoyed and said that she felt so much hope for her family back in equador. It was an amazing experience to be able to see how touched she was by the spirit to know that what we were discussing was true. She wants to know for herself that what the missionaries are talking about is true before she fully commits to baptism. Its a process but I can see how much she thinks about it when we talk to her.

Dylan on the other hand was probably the toughest investigator we've had so far. Our first day he hit us with some hard questions that made it really difficult to answer in the moment. He has been really skeptical because he hasn't received any personal revelation knowing that what we were talking about what truth. Until last night we went straight to the book of Mormon and he started to feel the spirit as he asked us questions and different things. It was such a strong testimony builder that the book of Mormon is so true and it really does have a huge effect on peoples lives. He was speechless after our message and didn't know how to respond. Which is crazy because he has questions about everything!! literally everything.​​​​​​​​​​​​

But the MTC experience is almost over. We are supposed to get our travel plans today to know when we head out to Cleveland on the 12th! Im so excited to be out there already, but feel like im not even close to being ready to leave. Even though im ready for some real food and not sitting in a classroom for 9 hours a day! The only thing that saves me is when we have gym time and get to play volleyball for an hour. i know that this church is 100% true and there is no where else I would rather be than right then where i am right now! Hope you all have a great week! Excited for the things that are in store for the future!

Love, Sister T
