Hey Everybody,
Tomorrow I head out to the field! It's pretty insane what goes on here in the MTC. You make a lot of good friends and if you want to shoot an email or write a letter you gotta be on the ball! It is pretty overwhelming at times, but I know I am supposed to be here doing the Lord's work. Every day is another struggle with the language and another lesson for me in humility which can get a little tough, but you can't help but love the Spirit that radiates here. It's gonna be hard to leave my zone because I have so many amazing brothers that I bonded with. However, we will all meet again someday. I know it. Today has to be short since I've got to finish some other letters and I have to make sure I am all packed and ready to go.  I love you all, this church is true, and I cannot wait to finally go out to Sacramento in the Spanish neighborhoods and proclaim the gospel, telling everyone that the True Church has been restored on the earth, that we have a Living Prophet, that Christ Lives and that God has a wonderful Plan of Happiness for all of His children. I testify with all of my heart that I know these things are true! In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
