I would say that week two in the MTC was a success! All my pants still fit, Elder Bowen and I haven't killed each other, and I haven't missed a day of shaving.
So let me tell you a little about my companero Elder Bowen. What a stud. He is such a nice guy, I'm super glad that we are companions. He comes straight out of Hooper Utah. He even taught me how to say it right... It's pronounced "Huhper, where the cows say muhhhh" hahahahaha. I can't quite say it right but he said if I ever go to Hooper, I'll fit right in. He is so in tune with the spirit all the time. He comes from a family of a ton of kids and he is missing a tooth. He has never kissed a girl but regrets not kissing his janitor co-worker before he left. Hope he doesn't mind me sharing all that ;) hahaha. We have some really good talks about life, we are both really similar.
I have a spanish joke: Que dijo un jaguar al otro? (what did one jaguar say to the other?)
Jaguar you? (Jaguar is pronounced "hagwahr" in spanish)
There are 8 guys in my district. Elder Bowen and I are going to Guadalapromisedland east, Elders Holt and Wilhelmson are going to Mexico City, and Elders Jacobson, Barret, Rollins, and Brown are going to Montarey. We are a happy bunch. We like to have fun but also work really hard.
What a spiritual Sunday! By far the best sunday of my life. It started out with a priesthood meeting with all the Elders and mission presidents in the MTC (almost all of the newly called mission presidents were here). Next was sacrament which was half of the MTC and there were 6 huge sacrament tables, probably 50 passers, and each passer had two trays. It was amazing. After that was choir practice and we practiced forever before the broadcast, and then of course was the broadcast. My favorite part by far was the missionary medley video. I felt so close to my mom right then and I knew we were thinking the same exact thing :) Love ya mom...
If you go back and watch the Broadcast at lds.org you can see me in the choir at 3 minutes four seconds, and also 1 hour 54 minutes 18 seconds on the far right of the screen ;) my camera won't upload photos on these computers but I'll try to send them from Elder Jacobson's camera later today.
Other than that, life has been pretty sweet. I get my district all fired up about exercising, they all watch me and sometimes try a couple exercises I do haha. And Elder Brown and I wrestle every night in hallway for a little bit. He is super cool, he played soccer at Westminister before his mission. He swears he is going to take me down before we leave this place. The dang Elders going to Brazil on our floor always tell us to stop and that it's not safe but we just tell them that we only wrestled when we were kids and that we are messing around. The biggest thing that I've learned is that you gotta make your mission fun or it's not going to be fun. Obvious right? but really, you just gotta have a good time every once in a while.
Well, I'm learning a lot, I'm having some fun, I'm still Kadyn Del Toro, and I absolutely love what I'm doing.
Thanks for all the support :)
