Heyo!!!! How's it going everyone! Things are going pretty fine here at the MTC and I do apologize because this blog post is going to be very very short!
Wednesday: Its P DAY again! I really love P day because one we get to go to the temple! Woot woot, and two, I get to hear from all of you!!!! I really love receiving letters and emails from all of you and I miss you all tons! Tonight was TRC, where we get to teach actual people and its really cool. Well we met with Nicole and Amanda who both served missions in Vladivostok and they were really considerate. I felt like I could really talk to them in Russian freely and it went very well. I could feel the spirit so very strongly that it just made the day for me.
Thursday: Today was full of its ups and downs. The extreme up was as we were walking by one of the newer district classroom, the teacher called at us to let us know that her roommates were Nicole and Amanda from the night before!!!! They apparently told her that the lesson with us was one of the best lessons that they had ever had before! what? Yeah they felt the spirit so strongly and thought my companion and I had some of the best teamwork ever. Which was kinda of fun, because the night before at the end of the day, we kinda got into a argument. I don't even remember what it was about. Don't worry we talked it out and made up.
Friday: Today we taught our investigator Olea again and we got her to agree to baptism she seem super excited and had actually read the scriptures all the way through 2nd Nephi! Go Olea!
Skip to Monday: SOOOOO today we got to host the Senior Missionaries again and take them to their rooms. Its so very nice to be able to meet all these new adults who have decided to serve for a second time. After that, during our study session with Sister Erying, we spent a good part of the time talking about Russia and her mission to SAINT PETERSBURG!!! yeah she's one of the cool ones. Anyways we just talked about Russia for a little bit and then she helped do effective study. After all of that, We kinda just went to bed early.
Tuesday: So at the Devotional tonight, we had an Elder from the Quorum of the Seventy come and talk to us about the importance and power behind daily scripture study. He started saying how one of most difficult things about scripture reading is actually understanding what is being read. There is a lot to be learned from the Book of Mormon, and it can get tricky to read it all on our own when we have no idea or care about how relevant it actually is to us. Try reading the scriptures each and every night and talk with others about what has been read. You can read many blessing that way.
