MTC Week 9!

Okay so I don't have a ton of news other than things are getting harder here to keep pushing through it, and seeing every other language leave and us just staying really gets to ya sometimes. I have seen like 4 or 5 people I've known outside the MTC come and go during my stay, and most of them have all come at different times, but I just have to remember that there is a reason that I am going to Russia so it's all for a good cause. So to cope with all of this me and Elder Wimber troll a lot to pass the time sometimes, but all in all, all is well here. Oh so it sounds like stuff is pretty freaky to hear news from the outside world here haha, like all the violent protests in Russia and Iran's military maneuvers with that US drone are pretty freaky, not to mention Kim Jong Il dying, a lot has happened since I left.
Okay so to answer some of your questions, I don't need more contact solution or contacts yet and I shouldn't need any more for a few months or so at least. We don't get flight plans for a week or two yet. I play my guitar at night usually.  If you wanna just kinda let me know what's up in Clark's, Luke's, and Curletti's missions that would be awesome, but you don't need to forward me their exact stuff because I don't have a lot of time to read and respond to it. 
Tell Parker Wallace I said best of luck if you get a chance too! Also, can you update me on any news that's happening in the US, Utah, and World Wide though in your Dear Elders if you have the time? I wanna know a little bit about what's up in the world haha. I sent letters on Monday to all of you before I got any Dear Elders this week, they didn't print anything until Tuesday because the mail room was closed for the Holidays and New Years, and speaking of New Years, if you wanna know what we did to celebrate it here, the answer is absolutely nothing, it was just two normal days haha. It was kinda sad I guess, and I loved the air horn, but you can get in a lot of trouble for stuff like that here so you have to be careful.
Anyways, I hope you are all doing well at home! I'm glad you guys had a chance to celebrate New Years, I truly do hope that Dad gets a chance to pick up that Chevelle, I saw the pictures, it looks awesome, and if the guy is giving it away, you might as well take it and just leave it home in the driveway with one of those car tarps over it so the weather doesn't damage it over time. I would love more marzipan, beef jerky, and apples if you ask, those are the things that I like the most. Well thanks for everything, I love all you all so much and all the support you give me, things are pretty good here for the most part so don't let me scare you about anything haha. Well until next week!

  1. (I think Travis said that I could leave messages here. If I'm wrong, let me know and I'll send it by letter or such.)

    I think about you a lot, buddy. I'm bummed we didn't get to do lunch before you left. I owe you one in 2013.

    I was at the MTC for three weeks and nearly lost my mind. It's hard for guys like us that are self-governing and rebellious. Hang in there, beware of becoming an "elder-bot," and say what you believe.

    And know your scriptures better than everyone else!

    Best wishes,
