Last wednesday we dropped my brother Lance off at the Missionary Training Center here in Provo, Utah. He is going to serve in Tampa, Florida. The Missionary Training Center (MTC) is an interesting place. When young men or young women become missionaries and enter the MTC they are no longer allowed to contact their family or friends except through e-mail or letters. They begin living missionary rules as well. It is a pretty tough change of lifestyle but it is also very amazing. The spirit of the Lord is very strong there, which helps their learning process. The missionaries often comment that they learn more in three weeks at the MTC than the four years they spent taking a class about the church called seminary. We are so proud of him! And I work at the MTC so hopefully I'll get to see him soon.
This blog was started when I was serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents maintained it so that my friends and family could stay informed with what I was doing. It's been almost a year since I've been back and I've decided to dust the cobwebs off this old web page and put it to good use again. This is my first attempt at blogging so let me know what you think!
