First Letter from the MTC

Elder Bahr wrote us a letter!  On his first day right after we dropped him off, he received his name tag, ID card, and room key.  Next, he went to classroom study with his district which includes six elders who are all in his room and are also going to Everett. He says that his companion is "interesting" (we aren't completely sure what he means). There are also six sisters in his district who are headed to Houston, Texas.  After classroom study, his district went to orientation (record breaking week - 850+ new missionaries).  He has practiced teaching and met his branch.  He wrote, "I will never forget having the badge with an orange sticker placed on my suit.  After that everyone said, 'Hi Elder, welcome to the MTC.'"

  1. I can tell he is going to be a great letter writer. Giving you details that help you envision how he looks and how he feels. Such an adventure ahead!
