The "in-famous" picture every missionary has to have!

This is our group that entered with us on Monday. The Sister in the front sprained her ankle just hours before. In this group are missionaries going to India, Cambodia, Viet Nam, Marshall Islands, Canary Islands, Spain, Guatemala, France, Nepal, Philippines, Korea, Florida, New Jersey.

You can't believe the sea of suits and white shirts. This is the cafeteria.

And finally, this is how we felt on Friday afternoon. Total overload. The instructors joke that they do their best to help us to drink from a fire hose!

The MTC is an amazing place. If there was ever a heaven on earth, this is it. There's just one complaint... At the end of the day, we are so exhausted that we fall into bed only to begin again the next morning at 6:00am. We study Romanian with our tutor until 8:00p.m. and that is after classes which start at 8:00a.m. The food is fabulous and we eat when we're not really hungry just because "it's there". We have met wonderful people and hundreds of missionaries who walk around mumbling in their newly learned language. The Elders love us and go out of their way to open doors and move out of our way. We have learned so much that we are overwhelmed. Why do we love it? You just have to be here!

Some of you have asked for our mailing address here at the MTC. Here you go!
