First off, I have no idea who anyone's email is. Mom, get me all of those as soon as you can that would be great, just anyone who wants to receive these I guess haha. So MTC is awesome loving it all. I've literally seen all my friends here so that's cool. Not a ton of pics though yet I haven't been carrying my camera like I should.
So I guess Bergen and lauren are coming to the cabin to chill with you mom and dad, that'd be fun for you. Just remember you love me the most forever even if they'll talk to you both a little bit more than I ever did hahah.
So my district is super rad. and zone. These kids going to Taiwan/Australia/Canada/France/US etc are seriously all such studs. I could not have been put in to a cooler zone. So diverse too! Here's the dynamics of the district in a nutshell. There's 10 of us, 4 sisters, 6 elders:
Confession time. I have not done any personal studying at all yet hahah. The district is always waayyyy off topic in a collective discussion/argument. Yesterday we had essentially 3 hours of study time. During that time, Wheeler explained the differences between Cyclones and anticyclones and how weather patterns work. Elliot explained why toilets flush opposite ways depending on the hemisphere. I taught everyone the history of the 12 tribes of israel. and Vaughn very astutely pointed out that Adam and Eve were definitely white, to which all of us busted up and told him to not tell those Chinese people they can't imagine Adam and Eve as chinese anymore. I told him to not be racist and he shouts "I'm not stupid or racist I'm sitting right next to one!" and points right at Wheeler who hadn't yet told us but is half Colombian. So I guess Vaughn has something against hispanics but Wheeler is a stud and just takes it. So there are the dynamics of this group that makes it so impossible to focus when we're all together cuz we all just feed off of each other and get out of control and love being all together. In a spiritual way though! generally. I've felt it a couple times for sure during our bonding moments.
Mandarin is coming great. I can pray, testify, and hold conversation so thats cool. Teaching in chinese is rad too but straight up hilarious because imagine three white people sitting in the same room only speaking chinese! it takes me a couple minutes to calm down everytime I walk into that room before I can start teaching bahaha.
So i've wrote a ton. mom dad I'm sending you a letter at some point thats more personal so be awaiting that either wednesday or thursday. Love you all! Don't be afraid to email or write though. thus far I've only received a package from the Parrs which was lovely while the district is showered in dear elders and whatnot. But ni men are all great!
