Today Don and I entered the MTC (Mission Training Center) in Provo to begin our 18 month mission to Wellington New Zealand in the Records Preservation Department. We were grateful to Ronnie and Ferris for our transportation from St. George to Provo. Their SUV was very inexpensive.
The MTC is an amazing place. There are 2,600 young missionaries and 75 senior missionaries at the MTC today. It is fun eating meals with that many young sisters and elders.
We had orientation today and then tonight we had a computer class. In the building with the computers are the language classes. We kept seeing missionaries on couches outside the classrooms practicing their different languages. You can tell they have divine help in learning the language.
