"Life is a fairy tale. Live it with wonder and amazement."

Wow, it was so great to hear from all of you! Emails really are great to get on the mission. I had a great week full of exciting moments!
So the first day I got to the MTC, Stephanie dropped me off and it was a whirlwind of activities from that moment on. I got my nametag, books and everything all at once, then they took me to my dorm room. I was the first one from my group to get to the room. Then I went to the classroom and met my district. There are 9 of us because one Elder never showed up. We all wish he was here because we have had the most fun together ever! I think we must have known eachother in the pre-existence.
My companion is AMAZING! Her name is Sister Smith and we get along great! She is from Spanish Fork, Utah and she is tall and pretty with red hair. We have tons of personal jokes and everything haha I love her so much! When we teach together the spirit is so strong. I think we were meant to be companions. We sing a lot of Saturday's Warrior together because we both know every song by heart haha :)
We didn't take very many pictures since we have been busy learning so much. But I am really happy here. I'll send pictures next week :)
I love the MTC! The food is awesome and I love the people I get to work with.
We have two other sisters in our district who are also going to Jacksonville named Sister Hannah and Sister Olson. Sister Hannah knows Courtney!
Sister Smith and I were just called as the Sister Training Leaders for our zone. We felt a little overwhelmed at first but now we are doing great.
Everyone kept telling us we just needed to make it to Sunday but I never felt like it was hard to do that. Yesterday our district decided we would all fast for 24 hours and then eat after we went to the temple this morning. It ended up being amazing and I felt so spiritual and awesome.
We have one investigator who we are teaching who comes to the MTC to be taught. We had our first lesson yesterday with her and it went so well!!!!!! Sister Smith and I cried afterwards because we were so excited and filled with the spirit. We hope she felt the same way.
Well, I fly out to Jacksonville on February 2nd!!!!
Wish me luck!
