First letter from the MTC

Dear everyone,

So I've made it through the first week. It has been a lot of hard work and studying, but the Spirit is so strong, I love it! I have had many spiritual experiences this week, the firesides and devotionals are amazing. My testimony has been strengthened and i know i am supposed to be here. Learning spanish is hard. I'm starting to catch on though. We taught a man in the TRC the other day, we were supposed to be teaching the first lesson, but all his questions were directed toward content of the second we addressed his needs. Although we did not teach what we had planned as a companionship we taught what the Lord had planned for us to teach. I love my companions Elder Bradshaw from Ely , Nevada and Elder Thompson from Salt Lake . I'd like to say Erik I am so happy for you. I have been praying for a long time for you to receive that answer, and the first night i prayed for it here in the MTC, then BAM next day you send me a letter saying you're gonna come join me. The power of prayer is real, and i know the Lord answers prayers, however big or small they are. I know that this is the true gospel, i know that the Savior lives and that because he lives i live and will live. This knowledge has brought such an amazing joy to my life and i'm excited to go share it with the people of the Texas Houston Mission . I hope everything is going well at home. How is Grandpa doing? well we've got very limited time on the computers and it's while we're doing laundry so i gotta get off now... i love you all and please send lots of letters...they're what we look forward to every day...and mom and dad...i'm gonna need some more insulin kinda soon, like in two weeks or so cuz they didn't give you a full prescription. and the chips and queso was a huge hit with the elders in my zone :) well Love you all and hope to hear from you soon. well....back to the Lord's work :)

Love, Danny
