Sean's First Letter from the MTC...yeah!!
dzien dobre family! sorry it's taken me a while to finally get an e-mail out, I can only write mail on p-day and it just so happens my p-day is tuesday. The MTC has been pretty amazing and eye opening so far. I don't think I have ever spent this much time in a classroom before. It is so awesome though... Not to have anything on my mind except the Gospel, the Polish language and the Polish people i will soon get to teach. The language is coming pretty well so far. It's tough i will admit but the Lord has already definitely had a hand in quickening my mind so i can learn memorize and comprehend all of the rules being thrown at me. I basically have had to unlearn anything concerning the english or spanish language because everything sounds so different. My teachers are amazing and so are all the leaders. I don't think i have been in a meeting yet that i havent felt an overwhelming confirmation that this is the Lord's work and this is where I am supposed to be. I love my district. There are 10 elders and 5 sisters (one threesome) we are the biggest Polish district they have ever had and probably the most davage bar none ;-) I was called to be the district leader the day after i arrived. Needless to say i felt pretty humbled and scared out of my mind because i had no idea what was going on, still trying to get my bearings. But luckily i have the most incredible elders and sisters in my district so its been great so far. Although instead of the standard 50 meetings a day i now have 82. The food is ok despite what others may say. I think ive lost weight since ive been here though, shocking i know. Lots of carbs, decent cooking though. thanks heavens for salads. How are all of you? I hope all is going well in Idaho. Sorry my last letter was way short. My branch president made us all write a quick letter to our family so .. yeahs Its been great so far though i will definitely be writing some more letters today, thanks cam and lysh and mom for the letters! Letters have basically made my life since i got here. Its nice to get a break from all of the study. This truly is the Lord's church. I considered myself pretty prepared when i came in here. But i had no idea i had such a capacity to grow. My testimony has increased exponentially (lysh look that one up) since ive been here its been awesome. Ive learned a whole new meaning to Pres Hinckley's Father's quote ... "forget yourself and go to work" ive been growing each day and hope i continue t develop into the missionary i know i need t be for the Polish people i love you all, have a great week! czesc elder daly by the way i hope one of those is the right email address i kinda blanked, i guess if i dont here from you in a week ill know its wrong :-)
