Well, we taught our first discussion today as a couple! It was a mock discussion, but they do have volunteers come to the MTC to pose as investigators - people who have joined the church but use their story to help us learn how it might a real discussion would be. We study from 8:00 to 4:30 with lunch and short occasional breaks. There are about 2200 young elders and about 100-200 senior missionaries here. The young elders have been taught to serve the older missionaries by opening doors, carrying luggage, and acting interested in us. They treat us like royalty! It is very sweet.
Our travel plans have changed. We are leaving for England on Saturday instead of Monday. We are happy for that, because we don't want to sit around all weekend wondering what to do with ourselves. We will arrive in Manchester on Sunday at 1:05 p.m., after which we will drive to Leeds which is about a 1-2 hour drive we think.
We are meeting lots of great people who will be going all over the world to serve the Lord. It is amazing to us the committment that is here to live and preach the gospel.
