First Email from the MTC

Guten Tag! Ich liebe das MTC! I have so much I want to tell you about the MTC. My companion is Elder Gunther and get this, he's 5'4"!! we are a funny looking companionship but I love him and we have lots of fun together :) So I am totally in love with this place. The spirit is so strong everywhere around here. The only bad part is the food! I honestly have no idea how the average weight gain is 20 pounds, the food here is awful and it makes everyone super gassy! I normally end up eating a salad or something like that. Oh well, it could be worse :)

Thanks for sending that package but honey, where are my paaaaaaaannnnntss? HAHAAHAHHAHAHAA :) oh that lego movie tho :) my companions and I are trying to learn how to quote movies in German. I don't have that one yet, but "Lukas, Ich bin ein vater." "Nein. es ist wahr nicht. es ist impossible!" haha we have a lot of fun and My German is better after one week than my french was after 2 years! The gift of tongues is real. But even though we quote star wars and have arm wrestling tournaments with the rest of the branch, we still are overcome by the spirit. On Sunday we watched a devotional by Elder Bednar entitled "the Character of Christ." If possible you should look it up and watch it for FHE. It's a little long, but it's worth it. Also, yesterday Elder Scott came for our devotional. Yea! I know! He taught us about prayer and how we will always get answers if we pray sincerely and promise to act on the answer. He's an amazing speaker. But my goodness that place was packed! we waited for almost an hour just so we could get a good seat. Crazy stuff right? I'll send pictures in a minute, this computer is weird. But I love you and miss you all! 

I have some more time so i'll write you about my district and branch :) My Branch has 50 missionaries in it, all going to Germany. The Branch presidency is way cool, and their wives are even better. My branch has me and my companion, Elder Weirsdorf and Elder Winkel, and then Sister Henrie, Sister Barlow, Sister Melody, and Sister Titensor (I think that's how you spell it). 

Elder Glissmeyer and his companion Elder Williams are right across the hall and they're our best friends here. All the guys in the branch (26) are already very close and have a lot of fun. Every day for gym we have a giant 3 on 3 basketball tournament and it gets pretty intense. haha, the last time Elder Glissmeyer and I were on a team together and that just wasn't fair for anyone else, but we had fun. It's so nice to be in a place where everyone likes you for who you are. They don't care about your background, they only care about making you feel happy and accepted, and that's how i feel here :) I also love both of my teachers, sister Judd and brother ****. Honestly, if brother ****
was taller, I'd try and set him up with Riley. He's really smart, funny, and spiritual. and he drives a MOTORCYCLE!! sweet right? well times up. Ich Liebe dich. 

Ok here are all the pictures. Dad was right, it will be much easier to just set up a drop box account. But guess what? I forgot my camera cord! :( so if you could send my one that'd be great. Otherwise, no more pictures :( also, I can receive mail every day, so... and should be your best friends :) go check them out! Also, If you've already made my blog go ahead and get on my facebook account and share a link to it. That way you won't have to forward my emails to everyone. Well I'll send you another email next week. Keep it up! And tell matthew happy birthday for me :)
