Week 1 - The MTC


We have just completed our second day at the MTC and I think I am as tired as when we have all 10 grand kids over!

Yesterday we had several talks and met the MTC Presidency. Dad was "volunteered" to be a district leader and we have eight in the district This is the largest group of Senior missionaries to go through this year -178 of us! We have met some awesome couples. One is going to India and another is going to Jordan (Humanitarian work). Zambia, Rome, Brazil and some island off the coast of Spain are also receiving some great couples. The older single sisters inspire me with their willingness to serve. Most will be serving in SLC -Family/Church History, but two Sisters are going to the Czec Republic to copy records and histories.

We watched an amazing talk recorded four years ago, given Christmas Day by Elder David Bednar on the Character of Christ. Beautiful.

This morning we started working on teaching from Preach My Gospel, and will be teaching investigators tomorrow.

Tonight's GA speaker was Richard J Maynes and his wife Nancy. They have a home in Oakley. Most insightful talks on the purpose of missionary work and fulfilling that purpose. Great spirit here. 

We sit with he young Elders and Sisters at meal time and thoroughly enjoy them, but occasionally we think we are walking the halls of some random High School in Utah!!!!! Pretty funny.

The companionship is working well together. No contention .... yet (haha). In fact, I would have to say I love my comp more than ever!

Thanks for the warning about the Cafeteria. The food is AMAZING! We are working to control ourselves and are working out in the gym each morning to rectify the damage done the previous day. However, we hear tomorrow is BYU Creamery Ice Cream bar, with all the toppings for dinner so we will have to use extra restraint. I know now how the Brothers bond so well over a trip to the Drug Store, it reminds them of their MTC days!!!!

Love to you all, will keep you posted.
Elder and Sister Lambert (aka Mom and Dad)
