Tallest elder and shortest elder in their district

Week 4

Well, it is so good to hear from all of you! I am glad to see that everything is going so well.

In general, things are going well here. I wrote a letter with some of my more spiritual moments, so I'll just tell you the general stuff for now. My roommates are Elder Nichols from Alpine, Utah (he went to Lone Peak) and his companion, Elder Johnson, from Star Valley, Wyoming. Then, there is my companion, Elder Crockett, from Mapleton, Utah and they are all great guys. Things here are going smoothly. It doesn't feel like I have been in the MTC for three weeks, but at the same time, it feels like years. The language is tough, but I find myself starting to understand little by little, so it's going well. Things are just by schedule here, so not really much time to do other things, but at least I'm not dying of boredom.

One cool thing that I mentioned in my previously mentioned letter is the fact that we went proselyting last Saturday and we were able to hand out 9 Books of Mormon, get 3 addresses and one promise to call, so that was super cool. Also yesterday, we were able to hear from a General Authority and in one or two weeks, Elder Neil L. Anderson is coming to the MTC so I will be able to meet him.

I hope that mom and Lauren enjoy school and I hope everything else in your guy's life goes as planned. One thing that I have learned here during my time in the MTC is that if you have the Spirit with you, all will go better than it would without it.

Well, that's all for now.

I love you guys and I think about you every day . I pray that the Lord will bless all of you and that everything goes well.
