Sorry no pics.  No time I was hiking all day!! I got sun burned on my hand for some reason but no where else!!!! The bananas here are awesome!!!  I need rain boots really bad!!!! My comp is like 4 feet tall!!  Tell Kalten he is a goober for not emailing me!!! Love that kid! Miss the girls!!! I already have three baptisms and I never even taught them!!!

Letter home from MTC Nov 18, 2014

Dear Family,

My companion is Sister Lee.  She’s from Houston, Texas.  My P-day is on Thursday.  They gave us this form to write a letter to you on.  They didn’t say we were only limited to the lines on the paper!  Tender mercies!  So it’s Thursday now but it feels like I’ve been here a week not day two.  It’s CRAZY how full our days are.  My first day was great!  I already got to teach!  The spirit is so strong here!  Everyone in my district is going to Washington  So it’s just me!  It’s fun.  My comp is okay!  She is 22.  I am amazed by how many older sisters there are.  Sister Dale is 25!  She’s in my district!  I like it here!  Tomorrow I’ll get a calling!  I’m excited.

So a little info on how we teach here.  People, non-members/investigators, or members can be hired to come in and get taught by us.  So I taught this one guy names Chi-Cho (non-member) and we actually were able to get him to accept our message. Well, God’s message!  I really am loving it here.  It is awesome and way happy!  It’s crazy how much I have learned in just under 48 hours!  Sleep is murder but I am very happy and evidently always smiling!  I ran into Sister Hubert today!  That was awesome!

The spirit here is so strong I understand why it’ll be so hard to be released!  Also, I now understand how hard it’ll be for an investigator to not accept the truth!  That hasn’t happened yet but I already love the people I’m teaching.

Mother,
Visa?  Where/how/when/ do I get it?
Just got back from the gym.  It’s the first bit of free time I’ve really had  So my zone has this weird game/prank thing I didn’t know about!  Now I do…It’s called banana.  So yesterday I am at lunch and grab a banana.  Sit down and begin eating it.  Sister Bell (she’s the one who emailed you for me) yells, “We’ve got a banana!”  So the district that came last week in our zone all have ipads.  So they all take out the ipads while sister Bell explains, “You will now begin eating the banana the way we tell you to.”  They converse secretly with one another and then announce that I’ll be eating my banana like an elephant!  What!  I am also to try and make elephant noises in the process!  I gained respect!  At first I tried putting my nose (trunk) into it.  Then decided pretending my hand was a trunk was better!  It was actually really hard!

Tell Kalten, Trevin and Allison I love them and I want a letter from them pronto that way I can wrote back next Thursday.  I love you all and miss you but I am way happy!  Love Sister Neicia Browning (Getting used to that!)
