Last day of the MTC!!It's good to hear you all are still doing well! & had a good Columbus day yesterday. The only thing better than a teacher in-service day is a snow day or Christmas. It's crazy how fast time has flown! The MTC is already putting up decorations for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I even saw some workers starting to put up Christmas lights around campus. Even though we are far from home (many here are from a different country) they make it fun & celebrate all the holidays.
Haha, Blake, thanks I'll try to remember to not gamble. It's crazy that we were just in Las Vegas a couple months ago! It will be fun to go back - I'll look for Seth Waite too. A lot of missionaries here have told me to look for family and friends in Las Vegas. I'm excited to meet so many new people.
For the last time, the five of us went to the Provo temple this morning. I always love going to the temple. I've had so many special experiences - every time I learn something new. We did sealings again and I realized the blessing it is to be born in the covenant. I know that those blessings are real. Thank you Mom & Dad for being married in the temple.
I am still amazed at all the "tender mercies" I see every day. God is in the details of our lives. If you look for the ways He blesses you, you will know He is there and cares for each of us individually. We're children of God. That's why He loves us. That doctrine is so simple, yet filled with implication.
Thanks for the many prayers; I pray for you often as well. Good luck this Thursday, Ben! Enjoy a four day week - I'll let you know when I get to Las Vegas!
p.s. Something that is kind of neat that sums up my experience at the Mission Training Center is the acronym MTC...My Time with Christ. In reality, we live our entire life with Christ by our side, but never have I felt Him so near as I have here at the MTC.
