Living at the Missionary Training Center is an incredible experience. Everyone is amazing and so fun. The first day they waste no time. An Elder picked me up at the curb, took my suitcases and dropped me off. I grabbed paperwork and my tags and then met with a sister that showed me to my residence.
I live in a room with six other sisters, who are all absolutely wonderful! I am grateful that I don't have to learn a language. Generally, we get up around 6:15. Breakfast is at 7:20, lunch around noon and dinner around 5:00. In between is just a lot of class. Literally, eat, sit, eat, sit, eat, sit. We get gym for about an hour a day and sometimes a service project or something. The boys are really good, and I never carry a tray after a meal, or open a door. I tried to be sneaky once and take my own tray with my companion. My district leader wasn't very happy with me. Ha Ha. So I'll be nice and let him take my tray from now on.
The spirit here is like none that I have felt anywhere else. We are learning so much and it is so neat to be completely immersed in the gospel and surrounded by people that have the same goal as you. My missionary purpose: To invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.
When we're not learning, (and sometimes when we are,) we laugh a lot, and we enjoy singing together. It's stressful, I'll admit, but it's seriously a ton of fun. I think that everyone should have a chance to go through the MTC. : )
