Update from the MTC

Dear World,
The MTC is great. I really enjoy my time here. My teachers are great and the food is great too -  at least it tastes good. My Residence Hall is renovated and so is my Classroom. My district and I are truely lucky to be in MTC luxury.

Drew Povey and his family dropped me off at the MTC. Drew baptized me back in December 2010 and just got off his mission the day I went in!! I happend to 2.5 hrs late though, but I think it was worth it. I had two companions Elder Duke and Elder Rackham for the first week, but after some shifting around I am only companions with Elder Rackham now. It's definately a differently life living with someone on your hip but I'm already learning a lot about personal relations : )

I have been called as Zone leader for my Branch. It's a really cool position. I have five districts I oversee with missionaries going to Sweden, Norway, SLC, Indianapolis, Oklahoma, Idaho, Virginia, Canada, and a few other missions I can't recall at the minute.

I got into the MTC on the 18th and am leave this coming Tuesday - time flies! The first Sunday the Branch Presidency is teaching you all the rules, and the next their going over your departure itinerary. Crazy!

Anyway, it's great. I'm so happy to be focusing on one cause: Having people stregthened in Jesus Christ, being brought to the full potential our Father in Heaven sees in us. It's awesome to see myself growing as well. I'm ready to leave the MTC but I"m also sad to say goodbye. I'm super excited to teach though and help others; also for winter : )

p.S. I saw Elder Benson, who is going to the North Adriatic Mission. He is a good friend from Austin and who I wish the best. Be sure to check out his blog as well.


  1. So proud of you!! Way to stay focused...can't wait for the next entry/post!!

  2. Hi, Elder Lewis, from Sister Kay and Kyla. What is your mission address so we can send you some mail? We miss you. Work Hard, Pray Hard, and Be Obedient.
