Wow. Gorgeous. This is just during personal study. I had to have someone take a pic. I love it. This is just right out side the MTC doors. It was a great day. Personal study is my favorite time.
My first haircut at the MTC. How do I look?

I can't believe I'm 1/2 way done with the MTC, it has been so fun!

Ok, on the spiritual side, I was really wondering a lot and thinking about who to fast for on Fast Sunday. I asked so many people, still didn't know so I pulled a James 1:5--["If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."] and I prayed about it. I asked God if I should fast for my mom and dad not to have too hard of a time, or if I should pray for the people in Anaheim cause I really do think about them often. Guess who I felt I should pray for? Not my friends, not my family, not the people of California. ANYA, I know the person we look up to. I would have second thoughts myself, but I had such an overwhelming feeling to fast for her. I don't know why, but the Lord told me, so I did. Let me tell you, it was the easiest fast ever and the longest. Because I knew what I was fasting for and I thought about her whenever I got hungry or thirsty! It was a great experience. I hope she felt it!

A funny story....we joke around with the nueros (new guys) if they have their missionary goggles on. I will explain, when you have been here a while you start to think the sister missionaries are cute, we call that missionary goggles cause they are not. Granted they do have very sweet spirits. But, lets just say my comp has his on. And with a couple of guys and tells them all this stuff and always has to look for them and talk to them. So we tease him and talk to him in spanish and tell him his missionary goggles are too tight, HaHa!

Another funny story, I was playing volley ball this week and it got intense! We are getting good so it was getting really intense and physical. Then, oh my gosh, two kids charged the net and since one was Elder Lew, and he is only like 5'4" when they jumped one of their knees went right into his XXXXX! He moaned for so long and like if you can imagine an Asian person moan in pain, that was what it was. So funny, WOW!

I love you so much, thanks!
