September 23, 2015

Well, the flight on the way over here was good. There was an LDS guy at the airport in Denver that bought us food because we were missionaries! :D The flight on the way over from Newark, NJ to Manchester was forever long!! When we got here the weather was awesome! It is like 80 degrees. It feels good to get out of the heat for once. Then we had a welcoming meeting and got our name tags and everything we need. I have two companions Elder Melville and Elder Johnston. They are pretty cool! Elder Melville is from Idaho and Elder Johnston is from Montana. They are both in college and are fun to be around. We play fußball (soccer) every day! Some of the Elders are pretty good. There are people from all over like France, Germany, Whales and China. There is only about 30 of us so we are all best friends!! One of my best friends is from Whales he is an Olympic weight lifter. A typical day is wake up, eat, go to class study German, eat, study German, eat, then go to bed. The MTC President still remembers Spencer Stirling and says he loves him! He said when he was leaving the MTC he gave the prayer and said, "I didn't know that I would have to leave my family twice." The President wrote that in his journal. It is really true though; we are all a family! We learn German everyday, all day! I have never had to do something so hard as to learn a language. It is so hard!!! I've already taught 2 legit lessons in full German and can say whatever I need to say. We pray and sing in German. I pretty much only talk in German now….haha! Elder Eibisch (a-bish) from Germany loves my socks and wallet because they are floral. He is so funny. They are so chill at this MTC. We can have whatever kind of hair and wear whatever kind of ties. The food is amazing, we get homemade food every single meal! The chef is a professional opera singer so he sings all the time. We get snack time before bed too! There is a really cool pond we get to look at every time we eat. My p-days are Wednesday. We get to go to the Temple, while in town we get an allowance to go do whatever. It is awesome! Today will be my first p-day.
