MTC Week 2

Greetings from the MTC!
     I leave for Texas on Monday! (Sep 3) Crazy, time has flown by... I love it here though and I'm learning so much! Thank you for all of the letters and packages over the past week, it makes my day when I get to my room and I have letters waiting for me. Keep using DearElder.com! It's like an email to me that gets printed out and sent to my mail that same day! Although I can't reply until my P-Day, I love hearing from all of you.
So I think I told you last week that my companion has been struggling and basically hated the MTC. I finally sat him down and talked to him for like an hour straight and set him right! I was seriously about to go request a companion exchange but you all know me, I never give up on a friend! He's awesome now and has learned a lot. He asks me all the time how I'm so social or how I make friends so easily. So I've taken him under my wing and I'm teaching him the ways ;) haha So how are all of you?? I miss my family and friends so much!! But I haven't been homesick at all surprisingly... I don't have time to with these crazy schedules. But I'm having a blast here! My district is full of the best 11 missionaries in the world, we're gonna change lives!! It's going to be sad to leave them. But some of us are flying to Texas together.

I wish I could show you how much fun I'm having!! You all know how I love to take pictures :D haha I haven't figured out how to send pictures on this dang computers... oh and Dad, I broke my camera.........I'm very sorry :'( It works, it just doesnt focus anymore.....I dropped it..... Does anyone have a camera I could borrow for two years? :) just kidding.
I hope you're all doing great and making the best out of each day. Something that my Dad has taught me that decides how my days are is: PASSION & ENTHUSIAM. Apply that to your lives and I promise you'll be happier. I want to share a quote that I heard at a devotional here at the MTC, "When you feel as if life is drowning you, remember that your lifeguard walks on water." That's Jesus Christ for those of you that are a little slow..Jose.. haha
I love you all and have a djSWELL week!!
