So hi! My P-Day is, so get jiggy with it.
So I guess I'll start from the beginning.
So the companionships in my district are my and Elder Joshua Lythgoe. He's from Heber and played soccer. He used to have long luscious hair, and we are basically best friends now. And the other ones are Elder Hynynen, Elder Boynton, and Elder Otteson. Elder Hynynen is from Toronto. Elder Boynton is from London. I have to try hard not to talk in an accent. Haha. And Elder Otteson is from Seattle. The sisters are Soeur Nelson with Soeur Bell, and Soeur Stevens with Soeur Erickson. Soeur Stevens is basically a replica of Kimmie.
So day two in the MTC was definitely the longest so far, but it was still good. Basically, the major highlight of that night was we met our branch presidency. We all got interviewed. I don't know what went through their heads in choosing this, but I'm the District Leader! And I'm the Senior Companion. Basically, being the DL means I'm the Super Senior Companion over everybody in the district.... And I grab their mail. Haha. I also have to attend meetings with the Branch Presidency on Sundays. But I like it. It's a good time.
So that, we had a service project to start out the morning. Elder Lythgoe and I had to clean bathrooms. I can officially say I've been in the girls bathroom, so you can check that off my bucketlist. I also had to plunge the toilet in the handicap bathroom, so I guess it's a good thing I learned that one time. As it turns out, our district (everybody in my classroom) is like one of the most advanced french groups ever. Elder Lythgoe and Soeur Erickson are the only ones who really struggle, but they're already starting to get the hang of it. We also memorized our missionary objective, and now the First Vision. I'm going to try to memorize one scripture mastery in french every day. What else am I going to do with my eleven hours of study time? Also that night, we had our first gym time. I ran with Elder Otteson because he is also a runner! He walked on at BYU last year, he's pretty fast. And I can overview a quick missionary exchange like that super fast since I'm the DL. We saw Elder Sam Sorenson (A runner from Mountain View who signed to BYU) and his companion, Elder Tanner Driggs (A kid from RHS). It was honestly SO nice to be able to run with them. I won't have to worry about getting fat in the MTC, hallelujah. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've lost weight. Also that night, we taught our first lesson... in french. Elder Lythgoe kind of just sat there while I stumbled through the french I knew, but it was good.
