This week went by super duper fast. So many fun things to see and do! On Tuesday I sang in the MTC choir. We sang "Jesus, Once of Humble Birth." Then we heard a message from President James B. Martino of the Seventy. Afterwards, I saw one of my good friends from my first EFY group. His name was Elder Checketts. I haven't seen him since the Temple Open House for The Kansas City Temple back in 2012. We talked for like 15 minutes, catching back up. He is going to Santa Rosa California, that's where Emily is serving right now. I told him to try and meet up with her.
Wednesday, I was a Host Missionary for the New Elders and Hermanas that entered the Mission Training Center on that day. I helped three Elders get situated in their rooms. I love being able to help people!
My District is trying to get a musical number together for this Sunday, because this is our last normal Sunday in the MTC. We have an Arrangement of "I Stand All Amazed". It sounds awesome right now.
Mom sent me a watch, and I really needed it because the one that I had broke the day I got into the MTC. I also got a new set of scriptures and the goods, because Elders deserve the best!
My time here at the MTC is coming to a close, and this time in 2 weeks, I will be proselyting in the Actual Mission field. I don't know if I have my VISA or not, but wherever I go, I know the Lord will guide me and protect me. I'll probably get sent to Boise or something dumb. I've been praying to be sent to Santa Rosa so I can see Emily one more time. But I know the Lord will make things work.
I love you family. Don't have to much fun without me
Elder Jonathan Tracy
