The End of MTC Week One

       We have been so blessed to be here on this MTC campus. It is a world of happy, studious, spiritual people. The bulk of the participants are of course the young Elders and Sisters off to all corners of the world to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They are giving one and a half to two years of service. They come here with happy hearts and a desire to learn how to teach and many to learn a different language. Sprinkled among them are the rest of us, learning in the same way.
       This is such a unique experience. We needed some Chinese characters read today and in the cafeteria it was not hard to find someone. We talked to an Elder the other night who is from Ghana, has lived in Atlanta and will be going to Arizona. The Lord is indeed "not a respecter of persons". You can see that he has chosen anyone that will serve him, no matter where they come from or what they look like. We are all called to these different places, because, we believe, there is a higher power that makes these callings and knows better where we can sere than we do.
       We study all week with three other couples. The Larsens are going to Utica, New York, the Ainscoughs to Tampa, Florida and the Marcellos will live in their own home in the west valley of Salt Lake and serve there. We had a wonderful extra bonus using our broken Spanish when we roll played with the Marcellos. They are sweet, sweet, "little" people from Peru. What a testimony they have.
        We had returned missionaries that taught us in the morning and the afternoon. They were powerful, energetic and so knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed them!
