Greetings from the MTC!

So this week has been full of amazing experiences!  I got called to be a district leader! I have a great district and an amazing companion.  I have gained a bigger family now of over 1200 missionaries. This week we had the Christmas devotional which we saw Uchtdorf!  It was such a blessing, such a huge impact on me, because he said that God has given us Wings to Fly.  I couldn't help but to feel a huge sense of joy for I said in my testimony that I wanted perfect faith to get my wings and hearing him just made my heart rejoice and my conversion in the gospel was magnified.

I leave on Dec 14 and I cant be more excited as I see now that God has so many righteous soldiers ready for the most important and most rewarding war. I know it will be hard, but we have spiritual weapons that will help us be victorious.
