July 18, 2012

We finally got a letter & email from Tyler.  We have been anxiously waiting to hear from him.  Here are some of the things he wrote in his e-mail and letter:
In his letter he wrote that everyone at the MTC was so friendly.  He is enjoying the food and especially the Fresca.  He probably is excited that his mom is not there to tell him to control himself with the sodas:)  His MTC companion and his roomates are all going to Louisiana.

This is the e-mail:
Hello familia!!
Hope all is well. im doing very good. i actually think i might be in love with the mtc!!! its so fun! (well most of the time) i honestly like this place. its super busy though. this is pretty much my schedule: eat, class, study, eat, class, study, eat, class, study, sleep. haha im getting in the groove of it though. the first couple days here were super slow. but now the days just zoom by. i cant believe i have already been out a week. its crazy. yeah my companion is elder ackerman from idaho. he is pretty cool. he is alot like me too so that pretty neat. so on friday i decided to start the book of mormon over again and i really want to study it and sincerely read it the best i can. and right now im already in alma!!! yeah i think the book is amazing. i cant put it down. im always reading it. every chance i get im opening it up and reading it. i made a goal to try and finish it by the time i leave the mtc. hopefully i can do it. ive already learned so much from it. and learned so much from all the classes here. one thing that i like the most here is that the mtc pays people to come in and act as fake investigators. they are actors and we dont know if they are actually members or not. so me and ackerman get to teach investigators alot. we usually teach like twice a day to people almost everyday. i love teaching people. you can feel the spirit so strong when you teach and the spirit helps you teach too. its awesome. this one time we were teaching and i didnt know what to say but the holy ghost put words in my mouth and i just started teaching about what i needed to say. it was an awesome experience. i cant wait until i can get to louisiana and teach people for realz... well nothing really that exciting here. just learning alot and working out. just trying to get super big :)haha jk. but yeah you guys dont have to worry about me cause im doing fine. today is pretty boring cause we dont do anything. the temple is closed for like 2 weeks so we just sit around doing nothing. and the gym is closed for 2 weeks too so im pretty bummed about that. i did get to play like 2 times already though. not to sound cocky or anything but during my gym time im definetly the best basketball player thats here. well nothing really else. im having fun with all the guys too.  well hope to hear from you guys soon.

Love Elder Willis
