Week 2

That awkward moment when you realize you're the oldest person i your district....the awesome moment when you figure out that the oldest person in the disrict (aka me) entered the MTC while still 19.
Ola Familia!
Ya'll did a SUPER great job at writing me this week...*cough* that's a joke.
Good thing I have a million other friends who love me enough to flood my inbox with love...ok, that's a joke too. I wil give you a week to reedeem yourselves. My P-day is FRIDAY and we print off emails at 5:45 AM sooo....Do it. OR send me a Dear Elder, that's almost better, because I get it the same day.
So P-day at the MTC is SUPER boring, last week my comp and I just wandered around the little bookstore for like an hour.
We were tryng to see if we could get our scriptures ingraved because EVERYONE and their dog was like "They toats do it there, and if you get scriptures there, they do it for free!" Yeah, guess what THAT WAS A LIE. No such thing exists. Sooo were our dreams crushed? Yes...yes they were.
Well here are some things that will let you know that you are DEFINITELY a missionary:
1. after getting to know other people super well/better than anyother person you've ever met, you start to wonder what their first name is. (first names are WEIRD!) haha
2. You give SUPER great advice accompanied by a scripture. For example DON'T EAT THE MEATBALLS!!! See Jerimiah 4:19 (sick...not personal experience btw haha!)
3. You really start to miss the outside world, so you start comparing people (mainly the Elders) to people on Tv:
For example.... Elder Anderson= Elder VanPelt (The Best Two Years) Elder Rhoton= Wreck it Ralph. Elder Johnson (Elder Rhoton's comp)= Fix it Felix and Elder Underwood= Syd(Ice age)
All the elders in our district like to have "matching" ties most days. Once we told them that they looked like The Wiggles. Well, the next gym time they all show up dressed in different colors of the rainbow!  Bahhaha!
 FINALLY (this one doesnt realy count) Elder Young= Tim spitting image. So werid.
4. You know you're a missionary when you "steal" picutres of Jesus and the Prophet from another classroom to put into yours...
5. Missionary work is exhausting, but the hardest part? Trying to make the regular sized fitted sheets fit on the extra long mattresses. You break a sweat like it's no one's business.
I'm really loving the MTC. The air is DRY and it burns my throat, the toilet paper pulls off ONE SQUARE at at time -___- and the chairs are SUPER uncomfortable, but I love it regardless.
My companion and I have been assigned to be the ward's kindof a big deal because we also get another title, "Best smiles in the Branch" Holla!
In my interview with President Coffman he said, "if you don't learn a LICK of Portuguese you will still have converts." Good thing, because my Portuguese STRUGGLES!!
This week FOUR people in our branch got their Visa's! None in my district, but one from a group the same week as us and three from a group that's just a  week old.
THERE IS HOPE!!! Buuuutttt it really does seem like everyone is getting their visas except district 54-F -__- Boooo...
On sunday we got a 3rd counselor...Guess who!!? KRISTEN MASONS GRANDPARENTS!!! Say whaatt! Hopefull someone who sees this tells her, and also tells her to write me cauuusseee I need her new address in MONTANA!
On Tuesday we had devotional at the Marriott Center, it was broadcast/sent to ALL the other MTC's around the world. Sweet, right?! Well Grace and I were some how in the choir together and SOMEHOW sat in the same row...after I switched with a poor sister afraid of heights. After the devotional they took a HOLY HUGE group photo of EVERYONE in the MTC...and I'm pretty sure they said it's only the third one they've ever done. And Grace and I got to stand next to eachother for it! So that's pretty cool...even though you'll never be able to tell, because were at the VERY BACK. haha! It's the simple things though. Love it. The Church is true.
Also...I am PRO at 4-Square...just so you know. I totally dominated the other day during gym.
Anyway, write me fools!
