The MTC is so great! It's really hard and I’ve
never been so tired, but I’m having a really good time here. My espanol is
surprisingly good. We went to the Main campus of the MTC yesterday for
Christmas yesterday, while times of it were super boring, others were really
good, and I can easily say this has been my best Christmas ever. Elder David A
Bednar came and spoke to us and did a Q&A with us. He handed out 200 cell
phones and we all texted him questions. He said if any of us kept a phone he
would hunt us down and do bad things to us haha. For Christmas dinner we had a
sandwich out of a sack haha. But that way the employees could go home so it
wasn't a big deal. I feel bad because I spent a lot of time emailing Dennis,
but I promise a better email next week! I love you so much and I know the
church is true!
I realized that I don't have Nichole's email, so if you want to... You could totally send me that and that would be so great. Well I'm not at the actual MTC campus for my MTC training. The church bought an apartment building as well as re purposed some of their original BYU housing and made an MTC west campus. It's for all the Spanish speaking missionaries. So everyone here speaks Spanish. It's basically like the MTC is the MTC and the west campus is like the CCM. (se se em-e) Which is the Spanish way of saying Missionary Training Center. My Spanish is surprisingly good. I know for a fact that the lord has blessed me with the gift of tongues. They had us teach an investigator en to do espanol. (in complete Spanish) on like the Friday after we got here. His name was Roberto and he was from Guadalajara Mexico. We did a really good job on getting to know him and we actually committed him to baptism on the third lesson we had with him, which was on Monday. Boosh. By the way, the investigators here are actually teachers, but I'm sure i'll have plenty of baptisms in the field. Well my time for today is almost out, but tomorrow is P-day so i'll write more then. I just wanted y"all to know I love you and you mean el mundo a mi. You mean the world to me. Keep on being a family and just to be on the bright side, you are already half way done with your Christmas's without me haha. :D I love the gospel, and I love being a missionary. Have a very Merry Christmas :)
Love Elder Harrison
PS y"all better go to Nichole's on mothers day. I want to see that new baby.
Well i'm leaving for the MTC soon. So before I surrender my electronics, I'd like everyone who reads this to know that I know for a fact that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. The Book of Mormon is a true and perfect book and anyone that reads it can attest to that. I love you all and I will see you all in two ;)
Also my mom and sister will be taking control of this and my Facebook so my letters and other mission updates will be put on here and there.
Weeeeell here's my bloggyblog where i'm going to have my weekly emails put. So anyone that is interested in following my mission journey should definitely bookmark this page, or set it as your personal homepage.. That might be easier ;)
