Hey everyone! I can't say I'm missing you all that much yet, but it's also only been one day, give me some slack!
Anyway, the MTC has been a fantastic experience so far. I'm writing this at night in the little time I have, partly because the District Pres. told me to, and partly because you won't hear from me 'til next Thursday (and yes, pictures will come then as well).
After being dropped off yesterday, I was told I was going to be moved to the West Campus, which is apparently much nicer. All the people here are staying longer. All foreign language speakers are here, and most of them are going to Singapore!
Elder Sessions, my companion, is a kinda quiet, but really cool guy. He's a very deep thinker that enjoys politics and hopes to reform the U.S. Education system. (Mom note...Coy has said he wants to be a revolutionary and reform the education system as well..Fun!). My other fellow Singaporeans (in my district) include our District Leader Elder Allen, his companion Elder Poiwei from Brisbon Australia, Elder Blockwelder (say that ten times fast :), his companion Elder Jin, a Korean from Houston, Texas, Elder Wilson from Utah, his companion Elder Colombo from Paris, France, and our only sister, Sister Anderson from New Zealand. (She is just like Aunt Jenny in every way except appearance).
Mostly the days are taken up in language study with our amazing teacher Brother Blisset, who got back from Singapore about 2 years ago and loved it. We've all hit it off very well and are enjoying our time together. We also all leave here on the same day!
Other than that the Gospel is still true and the work is progressing. We had some workshops that were fun and the food here leaves nothing lacking. The last thing I'll mention is how we all love to heckle Elder Bester from Canada, also going to Singapore. There are about 18-20 of us, so we fill 2 districts.
More to follow!
Love you all!
Elder Coy Christensen
