So, the MTC is hard. They throw so much information at you each day. It is so overwhelming, but it is amazing how much you retain with the help of the Lord. We were taught to learn the language as if it were a spiritual gift. That has really helped me. My teacher doesn't EVER speak English. Every lesson is completely in Tagalog. I am so amazed at how much I have learned so far. I have a long way to go, but it is only my fourth day and I can pray, bear my testimony and basic greetings and questions. Tagalog is the hardest and strangest language ever but so fun. Everyone not speaking Tagalog thinks we are insane. We try to SYL (speak your language) as much as possible. So me and Sister Christensen speak Taglish.
I already love my mission! I have seen a lot of people here at the MTC! I see James, Christian and Rachel a lot. They all seem happy! My Kasama says I know everyone here! I love all of the love and support from home! I have received so many letters and I love to read them! Keep sending them!
Mahal po ako!
