Week one- (Part 2)

     Sorry i didn't mean to press send there. still figuring all of this out.
So the MTC, It has been absolutely Fantastic, don't get me wrong it's really hard, and insane, but so full of the spirit! Ok so i'm going to start of talking about my district, amazing! there are six of us who are going to Billings, Montana and three that are going somewhere in Texas. six elders, and three sisters. It's so much fun to be in a district, its like having a designated group of friends, we are all constantly laughing and helping each other out I already love them all so much!
     Next, my companion, The one, The only, Ellllldeeeeeeeer Allen! This guy is so fantastic and insane! get this, He's a model. seriously, he was showing us some of his pics and stuff that he's gotten from modeling and its awesome. He's so hilarious though, he's already taught me a few new hair styles and helped me look better. The best part though is his heart though. he just loves everyone and while he can get a little stingy with the rules sometimes (which is great) he is always looking for ways to help people out. 
      Oh! also First day here elder Allen and I got called to be the new Zone leaders. I was really stressed out at first thinking that it would be a ton of responsibility but thankfully so far it hasn't been like that. Honestly it's just about checking in with the district leaders (who do ALL the work) and make sure everything is going fine :) really the only thing that iv'e had to do is authorize a few blessings and sign some papers saying that elders have passed room inspection and that they are allowed to leave the MTC and head on to their missions. 

      Also, my knee is doing ok. I actually just went to the Orthopedic doctor today and, Thankfully, he did not recommend surgery. Apparently when I fell I tore part of the inside ligament and dislocated my knee only for a second until it popped itself back in place. The thing that is causing me the pain is all of the fluid build up apparently. They just gave me a new fancy brace and told me to wear that for the next week so that they can go in and release the pressure in my knee next Monday.

      But ya, other than knee stuff the MTC is so Fantastic, I am learning so much here (ill send some of my notes home via letter, i only have so much time on email) and am working really hard. The food here is funny, it's either really good or really bad. you sort of learn to figure it out and then go for the wrap/salad bar if its the nasty kind. Also the gym here is really nice! we have scheduled gym time here to help us get in the habit of exercising. I haven't been able to do many of the sports because of the knee but there is a guy in my district who is this insane body builder so he's been helping me on my upper body muscles. Wow i'm so sore but it feels so amazing! maybe ill be big and buff before even getting to Montana :) Thankfully I haven't caught the bug thats been going around but poor elder Allen has, Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you so much for teaching me and helping to send me on a mission! Already this has been so fantastic and I cant wait for this week! stay strong and I love you all! Sorry no pictures right now, I forgot to bring my camera but I can most likely get on and send them over around 1:30-2:00ish

     The church is still true! Never give up, Never surrender!
