Greetings From the MTC

Hi Everyone:  Well we have completed our first week at the MTC and what a week it has been.  We have usually been on the go from 7:00 am until 8:00 pm.  But what a wonderful experience and time we are having here.  The highlight of our week has been the fireside with Elder Holland.  It was so powerful!  We have also been stretched with learning the missionary lessons and applying them.  The scariest part was the practice teaching we had to do with prospective "investigators".  That was really scary for Margaret and certainly out of her comfort zone.

We are impressed with the number of senior missionaries here and the variety of locations and assignments they are going to.  We are the only ones headed to Malaysia/Borneo and a lot of people ask "Where's that" and then they seem to be glad it's not them heading there.  We have made some wonderful new friends.  I hope I can enclose a picture of our district.

Next week we are going to be learning about the humanitarian work we will be doing.  On Monday we are going to take a trip to Welfare Square in SLC.  We are really looking forward to that.

This will be our chief  means of communicating with everyone now, so please check out this spot rather than our email but PLEASE do send us emails and keep us up with what is happening in your lives.

This is Elder and Sister Myers from Huntington Ut.  They are going to No. Carolina

Elder and Sis. Read doing the "This is where we're going" pose.

Our entire district with our teachers Elder Hepworth Left and Elder Pike Right.  Others LtoR:  Bro and Sis. Anunson from San Diego going to Virginia; Us; Bro and Sis Myers going to No. Carolina; Bro and Sis Ovard going to Heidleberg, Germany. 


  1. We love your pictures in your missionary name tags. We had the missionaries over for dinner last night, and one of the Elders serving in our ward right now is from Kota Kinabalu. He leaves his mission in four months, so he'll get home while you're there. He was telling us all about the heat and humidity. He said hope you're ready for that, but they have AC. I guess any exotic plant or animal in the world you can find there he said. Anyway, what a small world. Have a great week.

  2. Ben and Margaret! I love the "This is where we are going" pose. It's a must-do at the MTC. I'm glad you're enjoying your time there. I know I did. It looks like you have a great district. I loved teaching the "investigators" in the living rooms. We had to teach three in English and then three in Spanish. You'll both do just fine. I love you both!
