9/6/10 - Letter to the World

(We did receive a short letter in the mail on Saturday...This is her first email home)

Woot! I'm here :D

The MTC has been absolutely amazing. I 100% love it! Some funny things from the first couple of days:

I was the first one in the room and decided to be nice by letting them all choose beds first--bad idea. I was left with the top bunk in the corner without a way to get up. I have to climb on a chair, lift one leg up and then pull myself onto the bed. It's rather comical.

The first day I lost my meal card before dinner and got called over the intercom to the front desk. The second day I lost my meal card before dinner. Ya...story of my life. Haha.

The food is great...a little too great. I've decided to stop drinking milk to help me better empathize with those that are trying to overcome addictions to join the church. I love it with breakfast and dessert, so it'll be hard but worth it. The wraps are really good!!

I LOVE my district! Elders Jex, Willes, and Heinrich are going to PA with me. Elders Hanson and Potter are going to Orlando with Sister Worwood (my comp that I went to high school with :D). Sister Tall is going to Lubbuck, TX. Sister Mousseau (moo-so) is going to Salt Lake (used to be Salt Lake North)

I met an Elder going to Cody's mission and told him a bunch of stories.

Our teachers are absolutely amazing. I love them to pieces!!

I forgot my camera cord, so I'll upload pictures maybe next week (I don't know if it really works here anyway).

I've had a bunch of fabulous experiences here. I love learning about and experiencing the gospel! My testimony of fasting, prayer, and God's love for me increased this week a TON. It's amazing.

I can't wait to learn more! I'm trying to not spend a ton of time in here because all of my roommates are waiting for the internet. They let me go first :D

Love you all!!

Sister Denton

  1. Looks like nothing magical happened to you when you entered those walls. You still have your love of learning, always losing things, and being to kind for your own good. Keep up the great work. You are amazing!
