Cops Called on Day 5

March 23rd

What a week. Missions are hard! But they are great, it is like you just get this added strength! It is truly amazing. I have had several doors shut on my face, and doors not open. THEY DONT UNDERSTAND THIS IS THERE SALVATION! I flew in on Tuesday and met the mission president, he is really cool. He is from Box Elder, and doesn't like wrestling. I don't really know what to think about that. He is super huge on working out, so I am up at 5:45 every morning so we can do a cardio work out for 45 minutes, if any of you have suggestions on how I can be motivated, please send them to me! I would love to hear some ideas!
   Yes, I am on a bike. AND I LOVE IT. We bike down Bay Shore a lot, It is beautiful! It is gazillion degrees here, I can only imagine what the summer will be like. I am working on my mission tan line, and let me tell you it is coming along great.
  Sister sackley and I went to the club house to use the wifi so we could get some stuff done, and as we opened the door the alarm went off. We hurried and left and as we left we looked back and saw the cops coming, so we had to turn around and tell them what happen. Everything was okay, the cops were pretty cool about it.

  My companion is Sister Sackley and she is from Portland Oregon. She has been out for 6 weeks. Which is crazy because you are suppose to be getting trained for 12 weeks, not training on your 6th week out. So we are learning together.  We currently have no progressing investigators, so sister Sackley and I are working really hard to find people to teach. My ward is great, a lot different from Utah that is for sure.

Well this week has been incredible, the MTC is an amazing place! I am really sad to leave, but I am excited to go to work! I leave tomorrow morning at 3 am. I JUST GOT HERE. Time flies when you are working hard! Haha 
  This week at the Tuesday Devotional Quentin L. Cook came! AHHH. It was so cool. He talked to us about how they decide where missionaries go. For all of you missionaries out there, wherever you are going that is exactly where the Lord needs you. The rumors are true, your picture pops up on a screen, and they will assign you to either a mission president, the people, or the language. It is all revelation.   I can see the Spanish Fork windmills from my classroom, so I'll just sit there and look at them. For all of you Diamond Fork people on my email list, I was vacuuming the walls ( yes, I really was) and I looked up at a picture and thought the person in the picture looked familiar. So I looked a little closer, and lo and behold the name tag said Sister Savik!! Isn't that insane?! 
  I have a scripture for all of you. 2 Nephi 33:10-15 READ THE BOOK OF MORMON! It is good for you. Study it. You can make time for it, he makes time for you. In fact he has time for ALL of his children! I think you can find at least ten minutes out of your busy schedule to read The Book of Mormon. Partake of the goodness!!!!

Ps. Thank you so much for all of the letters, I am working on replying to them all!

Where do I even begin? The MTC is a wonderful place, the spirit is so strong. I have learned so much in just the few days I have been here! I have honestly felt my heart change. I have two companions, one is from Driggs Idaho and her name is Sister Bates, the other one is from Arizona her name is Sister Mudge. I LOVE my companions so much! They have taught me A TON! 

    For all of the wrestlers that are on my email list, I have found THE best chocolate milk EVER. truly inspired by God, it is amazing. You should all be jealous of me! My branch president looks like David Taylors Dad, so whenever he comes to visit I think about wrestling, plus I feel the spirit there is no better combination! I WANT LETTERS!!! PLEASE WRITE ME! Sorry this is so short, Ill try and write more NEXT TIME!
