Week 2 (part 2) - Last day at the MTC

Family and Friends,
Wow, this is my last day at the MTC. tomorrow night I'll be in my mission doing the lords work. 

     It's truly amazing how the lord works, Already I feel like the Lord has put challenges in my way just to bring me to my knees so that I may be more humble and realize that I always need his help and guidance. 
     I love it here. While The MTC requires a lot of hard work, patience,humility, and prayer, it is still one of the greatest things that I have ever done. Already my companion and I have been able to help someone commit to praying and to going to church! Also we got to give one of our amazing volunteer investigators here at the MTC a blessing!

     So just to answer a few of the questions that my mom has been asking ;) ...
   Yes my knee is doing much better, I am, for the most part, able to keep up with the elders in my district and even play a bit of ball at the gym! The best way to describe the food is to quote corporal O'riley from MASH unit 4077, "The food is alright, as long as you don't think about what you're eating" but really, the food is alright, there are somethings that you learn to avoid like the orange juice and the tater tot casserole, but other than that its been wonderful. I got to go to the temple today! It was so nice and really helped me to get rid of all the stress that i had been having. The temple truly is A house of God and is a place where we can feel lose to him. 

     OH! I saw dani today :) I was heading into the computer lab when i saw her walking down the sidewalk with a friend. I was only allowed to wave but it was fantastic :)

     Also! turns out that one of the guys in my district lives in Gilbert/Mesa and will be serving in my Mission! we were going to exchange our mum's phone numbers but forgot :/ I guess that will just have to wait until next week.

     We finally got released as zone leaders last night. I know I shouldn't say finally but there was a ton of paperwork and I was really glad to pass on that responsibility. 

     So i don't mean to brag or anything, but I'm about 200% certain that I have the greatest district in the universe. While we don't always get along, we still have our fantastic moments. For example we all decided to volunteer for a musical number in front of our whole branch during sacrament meeting. Me and another sister had a solo and while it was extremely nerve wracking it was Fantastic. Best sacrament meeting ever!  

     So ya, last day, Its been nice, ending it on a p-day, at least we have all day to pack unlike some of the other elders who have P-days on different days. But seriously we need it. Somehow in the 2 weeks that we have been here, us six guys have managed to DESTROY our room. Between all the amazing packages, and no place for all of the hampers its like maneuvering a minefield, make one wrong step and BAM! you've stepped on a twinky. 

     Elder Allen is feeling better :) it was funny actually, just about our entire district got sick but elder hulk and I, I got a little cough for a day but nothing like the other elders had. Thanks for all of the prayers. 

     Sorry i can't send pictures from here but as soon as i get to a wifi that my camera can access ill bombard you all with pictures.  

     Well my companion is ready to go and we need to go pack. I love you all and remember, through the Lord all things are possible :)\

     OH! also some great news, So I will have an Ipad that i can use on my mission, and apparently we are allowed to use it to view emails whenever we want but not send until P-day. so please encourage others to write letters and emails! I WILL read them all.
love you! 
 Love you all! Never give up, never Surrender!

Elder Berrett
