Well it's my first p-day, and I have to say that so far life in the MTC has been life changing. I think I'll have to write a letter with all the details (for the sake of time) but I want you and everyone to know that I couldn't be any happier in my life! My companion and I get along really well, my district (12 Elders) is absolutely incredible, and I've already had to teach three lessons in Portuguese, haha. But the amazing thing is that we were able to share a really good spiritual lesson, even though it was in very broken and simple Portuguese. So far the highlights have been going to the temple (which we did this morning) and this past Sunday. We had a devotional from Brother and Sister Tanner, and after that we watched a recording of the Character of Christ by Elder Bednar. I don't know if you've ever had the chance to see it, but it completely changed my perspective on true conversion! It's an incredible devotional, and it's apparently one of the all-time favorites for many missionaries in the MTC.
As I said, I'll send a letter with even more details, but just know that I couldn't be happier. I love this work, I know it's true, and I know I'm exactly where I need to be. I love you! And let everyone in the family know that I love them!
Anyway, I love you! I hope y'all are doing well! Give the family my love!
