April 16, 2013


Erste, Happy Late Birthday to the Grifsta, thought of you on Sunday man.

But anyways, the past week went great. It's kinda hard to write emails that I feel are interesting because we literally do the same thing every week... but it's a great same thing. Past week was good, though. Our Sunday devotional was with the Church's Director of Media, and he talked about the growing ad campaign by the church (largely in response to the Book of Mormon musical haha). It was really interesting. It's pretty crazy how much the Church is willing to put in to spread the Gospel (his point was that the Lord "hastening his work" didn't just mean more missionaries). But a lot of the talk was about how the Church has a huge ad presence in England right now and will be pushing further into Europe soon, so that's exciting.

Two weeks left... So weird. The MTC has seriously been one of the craziest, hardest, most rewarding experiences ever, and I know the mission field will be even crazier. It's going to be a really bittersweet morning on April 30th. But I'm so excited.

Had a weird experience yesterday. Our teacher told us about the terrorist act at the Boston Marathon, and it really kind of took us all aback. You forget what it's like to live in the real world here, literally. It was just really weird. Made me think a lot about President Kimball's quote about us being set apart from the world. But anyways, I'll keep those in Boston in my prayers.

MTC is going great, only one more email from in here! Love you guys, hope to hear all about how everyone is doing!
