Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from the MTC!

The MTC is a great place to learn.  We spend at least six hours a day in class.  And we have great devotionals. Our district has six missionaries.  I am the only 19-year-old Elder! The rest are 18.  We have two sister missionaries.  I like my district and companion.  We get along well.

Elder Russell M. Nelson visited the MTC for Christmas Day and spoke at a devotional.  It was really great!  He is over missionary work, and he talked about the growth of our missionary force.  There are a lot of rumors around the Church about new missions opening up, and Elder Nelson made it clear that rumors should be ignored.  The Church does nothing in secret; it always goes in the front door and will announce all new missions when they happen.

I am thankful to be on my mission and that I can spend this time preparing to share the Gospel with the people of Mongolia.  I know that Christ lives and that He is our Savior and Redeemer.  I'm grateful for my call to serve!
