When they say make it to Sunday they truly mean it. Saturday was probably the longest and hardest day of my life. I didn’t think it was ever going to end. But, don’t worry y’all.. it did! After I took the Sacrament on Sunday, I felt so much better! And the devotional was good. What was even better was watching Elder Ballards talk, “Character of Christ.” IT was amazing! It totally helped and opened up my mind!
I love my companion! I am so lucky I got her! The Lord knows what He is doing. We are both learning to NOT doubt. We are both learning to be brave and bold together. So glad to have a companion with me!
            My companion got sick… so, we went to the doctors on Monday. She just has a "virus". But, she’s been  coughing like crazy. He gave her some cough syrup. So, that is when we made our escape from the MTC! We had to go to the student health center to get her medicine. We left the MTC unattened! Haha, it was so easy. No one even questioned us. We could have totally ran away and no one would have known.
Tuesday we had an amazing devo! It kept me captivated and taught me that if we do what we are asked we will receive blessing, but if we don’t, then those promises will be taken away.
Wednesday was just a day in the classrooms.
Thursday we had in field training. It helped us to prepare to enter the field on Monday!! IT was soooo long though! Like 6 hours, but helpful! I can’t wait to get to Toronto!
I love you all! Thank you for all your letters and prayers, they truly help!!

MTC Thoughts

The MTC is pushing me to do hard things! ….. and things I am not totally comfortable with. But, I am so grateful for that. I know all of this will make me a better missionary. I am also so grateful to have Brother Richardson as a teacher. He has helped Sister Bottcher and I. He pushes us, …  but he know it is for the best and talks to us to make sure we are okay. We have worked on being brave and bold. It has been hard for us, but we have both been doing so good. I know that my Heavenly Father can make my weakness become strong and I have definitely seen that while I have been in the MTC. I know the Lord would not give me anything I could not handle.
