Still in Provo!!

Hola Familia,
I am actually still in Provo, Utah MTC. They revised our scheduled flight to the Dominican Republic to the original date Feb. 2 which is this Thursday again. At 3am is when we have to be ready to leave and we wont be in the Dominican till 9:30 at night. So if your expecting a phone call today I'm sorry but at least your getting an email! Right?  Well here at the MTC has been amazing everyone in our district do not want us to go. Seriously some of these Elders would be like my friends at home. I know for sure that we would all be best friends. So I'm glad I'm not leaving today because there are some big rumors that the prophet or at least some apostle will be here for tomorrow for the Devotional because tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the MTC. I'm happy to hear that baby Jaxon is healthy and well. Also, glad to hear Michelle is doing great. I'm honored you named his middle name after mine. Anthony is a great middle name. So I have taken a lot of pictures for all of y'all I'm excited for you guys to see my companion and elders in my district. They're my best friends. Really it's so easy to be friends with everyone here. I saw Cody here. It was so funny too cause I sat down at my normal table for Lunch and I saw him just sitting two seats down from me. It was pretty funny. Tell me about the Super Bowl? Who is predicted to win? So on Thursday, I'll be in the Dallas airport from 10am to 12:30am. Someone tell Alex Vincent that I love him and tell him thank you for writing me. Tell Bro. Johnson thank you for that quote he sent me, it spoke to my heart. Also, someone tell Katelyn Barnett and Morgan Wilson thank you for writing me. Tell Andy I will never be the master and I will always be the student. Thank you mom for sending me letters all the time. I love you!
Yo se que Dios nos ama.
Yo se que nosotros somos hijos de Dios
Yo se que hay un profeta en la tierra
Yo se que esta Evangelio es verdadero
Y Yo se que estas cosas yo dije nuestro verdad
En el nombre de Jesucristo, Amen

Provo MTC Update


Thanks for writing me so many letters. Sorry I haven't written back yet I don't ever really have time. I wrote a letter to Mataio but just cause I wanted him to make sure he reads whatever he wants to read now. Maybe his favorite story because EVERYTHING you do is based on the investigator. So I had to let him know before he got here. Tell Andy I said "Happy Birthday!" he's almost done with residency! So Christy asked if I have any friends? Everyone in my district I'm super close with there like my best friends. Were like the Goofy Goobers but in the Provo, MTC. I'm glad your pictures with Angela Stephens went well. Oh and I have 2 roommates their like polar opposites one's favorite word is "matar" in Spanish and he is loud spoken. The other was is more quiet and well spoken so it's pretty funny between the two of them. If you want to send me something I need a pocket size Himnos if you can't get one don't sweat it because I will be able to get one in the Dominican Republic MTC if not. Yeah just like Elder Child, I don't miss my cell phone either it is quite amazing. So I think I like Jaxon more than Grant but I think any name will be a great name. Maybe you should call him a Book Of Mormon name, that could be funny but not going to lie they have some pretty masculine names in the Book Of Mormon so it may not be as bad as you think. Michelle that story made me laugh when Paige said " Does the baby know how to wave back?" (laugh out loud). I'm sorry about Logan's shots which made him sore and walked with a limp. It kind of made me laugh actually. But I was like "LOGAAANNNN!!!!" I love him. So Michelle some people saying your going into labor on the 24th some say your going into labor the 25th. But whatever day I will pray for a safe and painless delivery. I finally saw Drew today he's been here since last Wednesday and I saw him for the first time today (Monday) in the breakfast line. He looks good. Speaking of looking good, I got a haircut, it's not quite good as Andrea but I still look good. Congratulations Mom and Dad for selling another really expensive house. Maybe your receiving blessings as I am on a mission. Who knows? So I did sealings in the temple for the first time today. It was a neat experience. Ashley Wawro wrote me on Dear Elder as well as Mataio and Kelsey Holman I'd really appreciate their letters. If someone sees her tell her I will do my best to bring others unto Christ and will do my best to make everyone proud! Ashley Wawro I have received a lot of personal revelation. I've learned to not share personal revelation but I do want to share with you to keep a personal journal. I promise the Lord will speak to you if you do. As long as your not writing about pointless things. And if you pray to have the spirit to be with you before you start. I promise you will receive more personal revelation. Mataio I would like to share with you so many things but I just don't have time too. But hopefully you got my letter already. Oh I FORGOT I leave next Monday, well next Monday I report 3am and I depart at 6am and will land in the Dominican Republic 9:30pm. I'll be able to call y'all when I'm at the airport. Which I will be in the Dallas Airport before I go the Miami then to Dominican Republic. So I won't be here next week and I might not be able to email y'all until 2 weeks. Who knows?

Yo se la iglesia es verdadero
Yo se que El Libro De Mormon es la palabra de Dios
Yo se al guidaramos la convenios, Dios bendiciremos nos
Te Amo.
En el Nombre de Jesucristo,

How is everyone? I got y'all letter through Dear Elder. So apparently on Dear Elder you can send me mail for free. And feel free to write me often, because we get mail twice a day!! Elder Groberg gets tons of mail! (elder in our district) He has like 20 letters from his family. My companions name is Elder Perry, he's real cool, he's real knowledgeable. I'm lucky to be his companion. My Spanish has gotten a lot better since I have been here. I have already learned how to pray and bear my testimony! I'll bear my testimony a little later in this letter. I want to write more but I wrote so much in a letter I haven't sent yet. So hopefully I can tell you stuff that's not on that letter. First off the MTC is pretty strict but now it seems pretty laid back because I have settled in and can make good use with my time now.  My mind is just scrambled write now and in the top right hand corner on this computer there is a timer clicking down. I have taken 3 pictures. All of which are of my room. My companions and I side is clean. I know mom would be proud. A member of the 70 spoke and taught us to remember the goals we set for our mission and taught us a lot of things. I wrote it all down. But forgot to bring it to the laundry room where I am currently writing this letter. I wore my white shirt everyday so far. I figured I might as well wear as often now cause I will never wear in the Dominican. I have been writing in my journal every night. Member of the Second Councilor Hermano Anderson in our branch told us to write things down. He said why would God tell us things if we don't write it down? I'll try to put pictures in my next letter. I forgot some of the questions you asked? Well how is Drew's stomach? And I don't like the food here. A member in our district have found at least one long curly hair in our food at least once out of all 3 meals yesterday. Including me. I stick with things packages like potato chips or do a very thorough search through my cooked food.
Yo se que la Iglesia es verdadero. Yo se que Padre Celestial ama nos. Estoy agracedio por todos bengimas en mi vida. Yo amo el Evangelio y Jesucristo. En el nombre de Jesucristo. Amen
