The MTC is so great. I can't begin to explain how wonderful it is. I've made so many great friends and I am learning so much. It's already beginning to be hard to differentiate between Malay and Ingliss! Soyo Begasso, seriously! Did Komu know that Malay's so very related to Arabic? You'll get some pictures on Thursday.
Anyway, the MTC is so much fun. Elder Bester from Canada (and proud of it) was given the job of Sacrament Music Coordinator, but when he returned he told everyone his companionship had been transferred to the Bangkik Thailand mission speaking Mandarin. Elder Sessions and I, just returning from being given the job of Sacrament Coordinators, were given the heads up so we played along, saying the same thing. Komi had fun with it.
We're 'teaching' an 'investigator' named 'Limbie' right now, and we had our 3rd (tiga) lesson tomorrow morning. It's fun. We spend most of the day teaching each other a lesson we do not know, since we only get a teacher for tiga hours. The food is decent, but apparently it's worse, but it trades off for better housing here in the west campus.
Another funny thing, Elder Blackwelder, after teaching Limbie, came out and, when we asked him if he's done the baptism challenge, said "Done and Done. The spirit was so strong he started crying, we baptized him in his own tears. Bam. Right there." He's a really funny guy. The other people are good to associate with.
Elder Colomo is a really awesome person, and I totally respect a person who learns Malay by fist translating English to French, then French to Malay.
Elder Bednar's talk on the Character of Christ is amazing, and you should totally watch Ephraim's Rescue.
Love you all,
p.s. Thanks so much for the cookies!
p.p.s. Ron Tanner spoke, cousin to T.C. Christensen. Did you know he made "Only a Stonecutter?"
p.p.p.s. Tell my siblings if they write me, I will always respect personally!
