More fun at the MTC

MTC Day 2
We are very busy here. We get up at 6:30, eat breakfast at 7:15, start classes at 8:00. We go until 4:30. We are having classes on how to use Preach My Gospel and tomorrow we will teach an investigator.
Tonight we went to a devotional at the Marriott center. We were driven down in a tour bus. All the young missionaries have to walk.  Elder David F. Evans spoke. He is in the 1st council of the seventy and executive secretary in the missionary department of the church. His talk was all about the changes in the missionary program that happened to accommodate all the new missionaries coming out since the October. He spoke about Jacob 5 and the parable of olive trees. In verse 61, he said the Lord didn't ask for more time for the trees, but more servants for the garden. He likened that to all the new missionaries who are prepared to serve the Lord at this time. They had a huge missionary choir sing and it was so fun to see so many missionaries in one place.

MTC Day 3
We had another good and busy day.  Today we all had to teach an investigator. We taught a lesson on the Restoration to a volunteer in the Teaching Resource Center. We were a little  nervous, but it turned out well. All the volunteers pretend to be investigators, so we don't know for sure if they are members or not.  Tomorrow we teach a lesson on the Plan of Salvation. We are studying for that.
604 new missionaries arrived today. They had them all checked in one and 1/2 hours.  It is quite a process. Tonight we have our window open and they are all out laughing and talking on their way back to their rooms. This has gone on for over 30 minutes- there are so many of them.

We also saw Sister Tantillo from our home ward and got a picture with her.
