My first real week

Alright the MTC is a Firehose and one does not simply get a drink,
Hey everyone how is everything? 
first off my week has been INSANE it is Nonstop here and you can't catch your breath the first two days its Crazy, after those first two days things level out and you can start getting a grip on stuff. I learned SOOOO much but its more just retention like I said Firehose. I love my compainon Elder Ashcroft he's a stellar dude he's my age but he turns 20 in Dec. he's from AZ. We had our first devotional on sunday and it was the Provo MTC Missionary advisor and he gave a talk on the true power of Prayer. Afterward we sat and watched a older Christmas Devotional from Elder Bednar and he spoke on the Character of Christ and I wish Everyone could see it but its MTC only so :P but it is Phenominal and so very uplifting and a call to action I can not ignore. The food is pretty good and alot of varity but it's not Home cooking :) but I am still eating plenty ;) I leave for Ohio on the 23 at 3:30AM so its gonna be a Red Eye for me :P. Most of my district is actually going to Virginia chesapeak including my Compainion. I love our ZL's they are also our Roomates and they are just amazing to hangout and talk with. we have a pretty big district with 12 in ours 6 Elders and 6 Sisters. Our ZL's when we got here just left this morning but I did get to know them quite well, Elder Ruhl is at Carlsbad Cali now but he was the coolest guy you've ever talked to and you'd never guess it but he was a new convert! This place takes some time to grow on you and you don't feel the spirit untill you've been here a few days because of the stress but you do come to love it... and then they rip you out of it in the wee hours of the morning and ship you off XD 

Love You all and I will send photos in a sec I got to switch my laundry now 

Alright thats enoough photos Next time I might be In Cleveland!
Oh btw Dl= district Leader STL= Sister training Leader and ZL= Zone Leader

First Day At the MTC

Heya I made it and its been a Whirlwind! I don't know what to say except I know that this is where I need to be. My companion here, Elder Ashcroft, is really cool and I am super excited to start learning, we got checked in and then we had a class with our district of 12 people, then we went to a big welcome room where the miss. prez talked to us then we had Dinner and some RP lessons then we met our Zones and that brings me to here.
