Hello from the MTC!!!


Hey you guys! I am email you guys to let you know that <i have recieve to the MTC safely and the my P-day will be on friday! So far things have been good, i met up with some other missionaries in the atlanta airport, so we all  stuck together. There was a kind man who saw that we looked lost at the mexico MTC and he knew right away that we were missionaries so he showed us where to go. I love you guys lots and will email you on friday!

*Notes to clear up some “lingo” for those who may not know:

MTC stands for Missionary Training Center – this is where she will spend the next six weeks studying Spanish and being trained in what she needs to know, do, & teach as a missionary.

P-day stands for Preparation Day – a missionary’s focus is on doing God’s work and helping others come to Jesus Christ. They teach, do service, study, etc every day. One day a week is granted to them as a preparation day where they are able to take care of personal things – do their laundry, grocery shopping, etc. It is on preparation day that missionaries are able to read & write emails. So, look forward to Friday for updates!!

*Mom Note: I think when she said “mexico MTC” she meant “Mexico Airport” just a guess though.

I must say it was great to receive this email, I think I was just a touch anxious that all would go well, etc. Now I can relax and look forward to her weekly emails – so excited!! Of course, I miss her like crazy already, but I am so thrilled for all the amazing experiences she will have & I can’t wait to hear about them!

And she’s off!

It seems not long ago I was posting stories about all the trouble our daughter, Dorothy, was getting in – all the silly things she did when she was little. And now, here she is all grown up and choosing to serve an 18 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She’s been called to serve in the Mexico Mexico City South mission. This morning we drove her to the airport and after lots of hugs and pictures, we waved goodbye as she headed through security and off to her gate.

I am honored to be her mom – she has grown into an amazing young woman & I am so excited for all the amazing experiences she will have. We will miss her like crazy & we will look forward to her letters, calls, & pictures!

I will post her letters & pictures here on my blog for those who want to follow her journey.

And, now I leave you with a video we created to bid her farewell – a glimpse through the year at some of her shining (and not so shining? lol) moments….
