Second Week in MTC

Hello Everyone!

I have been super busy. My schedule is pretty much eat, sleep, study and then 9 hours of class each day! I can't believe that I have already been here over a week! Time has really flown by! As you may have noticed, my p days are on Friday so that is when I will be able to reply to everyone! So don't worry if you haven't heard from me in a while, I haven't forgotten about you! So for those of you who are worried that you can't write a lot to me because I don't have a whole lot of time on the computer, I suggest going to dear elder on the LDS website or even searching in google for that. It is basically an online thing like email except they print out the email for me and then give it to me like it’s a letter. This way I will be able to read it and take some notes and then get back to you. ;) 

This week has been a roller coaster. I don't even know where to begin. I guess I will talk to a little about how class is going. It is definitely getting better! We are understanding a lot more and although it is frustrating at times I have come to learn that I need to put all of my trust in the Lord and as long as I continue to study diligently, He will be able to help me. So we teach our "investigator" every day and on our fourth time, we had prepared this amazing lesson for him. We had it all outlined and knew exactly what we wanted to say. When we started teaching about the Atonement, he started asking us questions. Now this was totally off topic and we didn't plan on any questions really but something great happened. I understood exactly what he was asking and was able to answer all his questions so that he could understand. I know for a fact that this was not me. I was able to recall where the answers to his questions were in our little Mongolian book and be able to teach him. This was such a neat experience and at the end we invited him to be baptized which he said YES to! Now I know this is just role play and not a real situation but it was definitely something that I needed to experience because it helped strengthen me as well as my testimony. Heavenly Father does answer our prayers and he is there for us always. We only need to be willing to listen.

On a different subject, we got our sponsor papers the other day! So exciting! I will be teaching at the Logarithm Secondary School which will be kindergarten to 9th graders. I am so unbelievably excited and can’t wait to meet all my kids! The best part though is that my teacher was actually sponsored by the same people so I get to ask him questions about it. So far he said that they are pretty wealthy and they treat you very well! They take you on little field trips like into the country, feed you really well and may even give you some of the cultural clothing that they wear. I will be teaching the class by myself and then my companion basically will just sit there since they won't be sponsored by the same people so that will be a cool experience but one that I am slightly nervous about but I know that I will not be alone. 

Something else he told us it what they eat... now this will be interesting... they eat horse, lamb, camel, and wolf.... now I don’t know about you but this is going to be one interesting experience but one that I look forward to! He also said that we are able to ride the camels there so YEES people, I will get to ride a camel :) haha. 

Sister B is awesome and she has been a great example to me and we have tons of fun together. We actually just got called to be the Sister Training leaders for the zone so we will be helping the new sisters that transfer in and showing them around and making sure everyone is doing alright so that will be fun! 

Well this is all that I have time for so I will make sure to keep you all updated! I love you bunches!

hiretay! (Love) definitely not how you spell it in Mongolian but that’s the best i can do, it’s at least how you pronounce it... sort of... lol
