So this week has been amazing! On Tuesday, our devotional speaker was Elder Anderson. He talked about sacrifice, opposition, and deliverance. It was broadcast to all of the MTC's in the world. Our zone (a group of missionaries that usually learn the same language, but we have 7 languages) got to choir practice super early so that we could be in the front row when we sung our song for the devotional, it was super cool. Nobody knew who it was going to be until he walked into the room, it was awesome seeing an apostle and being like 100 feet away from him and singing for him.
Yesterday I got to be a host, one of those people that help the incoming missionaries get settled in and get to their classes. I helped someone going into the Salt Lake City East mission, so that was cool, maybe she'll serve in the Fairmont ward! That was really fun.
I am also loving learning the language, it is so fun. I'm halfway through the MTC now, and I can understand probably 75% of what my teachers are saying and can get through a conversation pretty well. I've gone over my hour now, so Sampai Junta Lagi!
