Letters from the MTC

Wes has his 2-week anniversary at the MTC tomorrow. We've received a couple of letters and here are the highlights:
  • First couple of days were difficult adjusting to the food, but all seems okay now.
  • His companion is Elder Salas from Layton, Utah. Elder Salas was also an "ice-monkey" this summer, earning mission money by working at an ice plant.
  • Another elder in Wes's district is from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Wes says they talk about the "Land of Enchantment".
  • Wes was made District Leader. This is basically a leadership role. For all who know Wes, he's a natural leader.
  • All the food seems to give him gas, but this is not something new. There is a reason his nickname is GasMan. Apparently, apple juice is deadly.
  • Was able to attend the Provo Temple. It was awesome!
  • Got "checked out" by a group of young women at the Provo Temple.
  • So far, most of the devotional speakers have talked about being bold. Good messages for new missionaries.
  • He sorta feels bad that he left his room in such a mess.
  • He's looking forward to getting to Washington next Tuesday.

  1. I was hoping that I would see him one day when I went to the temple. There are always lots of missionaries but I never did see him. I can't believe he is already out.
