Life at the MTC is Crazy!

So I'm sort of getting used to all of the crazyness here at the MTC. I just don't have enough time! I love our planners though! Weird huh? I plan for like every 30 min and I still have a ton of stuff left over each day that I need to do. It's really rediculous!

If you have ANY QUESTIONS at all just email me at Anyone can email me, but I have to send letters back to you so please put your address in the email.

For anyone who has no idea what I'm doing just go to and I am basically teaching about all that stuff. Well, right now I'm basically just learning Hungarian, but when I get to Hungary I will be teaching anyone who wants to listen about Jesus Christ and how His gospel has been restored. He has called another prophet in our day just like Moses, Noah, and Abraham. It is so amazing! I wish I would have been more talkative at home. I love learning about Christ and His teachings and preaching about Him! He has blessed the world with another book of scripture called the Book of Mormon that goes hand in hand with the Bible and teaches about Christ's teachings in ancient America. Reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible and following Christ's teachings has blessed my life SO much, and I know that anyone's life can become better and happier through Jesus Christ and His gospel. I know that with all my heart, because I have prayed really hard about it and God has answered my prayers. I feel peace and joy when I pray about the Book of Mormon and about Joseph Smith and I know that that is the Spirit of God telling me that it is true!

I love you all! I have to go now, goodbye!

My First Week at the MTC

Hey everybody!

I'm alive and very well! The MTC is crazy! Oh just so you know anyone can email me, but I have to write letters back and I can only check my email on wednesdays. so, anyways my grammer and stuff is going to be really bad because I need to hurry, maybe my dad'll correct it. I donno. So the best way that I can describe the Missionary Training Center (unfortunately only people from Stanwood will understand this) is basically if Coach Wilfong was a language teacher and I was in his class all day 5 days a week! We don't have classes on wednesdays (so I can do laundry and stuff like that) and on Sundays, but I still have to study super hard! There is so much stuff to talk about but I don't know how to pick it out so just email me with questions and I'll try to answer them.

I barely have any free time, and during a lot of free time I need to study so don't expect huge letters or me writing letters back really soon.

Anyways, Hungarian is CRAZY! It is really cool, but way hard. I would write some on here, but they have a ton of accents and umlauts above the letters so I can't really write anything. I miss everybody, but I am having a great time here! It is by far the hardest thing that I have ever done mentally, but it is so worth it! I wish that I would have told more people about what I believe, but I want everyone to know that I know Jesus Christ lives and that His gospel is here on the earth again and that if we follow Him our lives will be so much better! Well I wish that I could write more but I have to go now! See ya!
