1st Week at the MTC

Dear family,

So as you can see my p-day is on Monday!!!  The MTC is a really great place it’s also a really hard place!!! But the spirit is so strong here you just know you can make it.

     So the first 2 days are fantastic they really pump you up and make you feel good, and they make you feel like you can take on the world. But the 3rd day is the worst!! That’s the day they break people, and they got me. So what happened was they made us teach in German and this was really intimidating (a lot for me because I’m the only one in my group that did not already have 3-4 years of German before coming so I already feel really behind the others.) anyway we went to teach and I just got really frustrated because I knew what need to be said I just didn’t know how to say it in German. And I got upset and just about to that breaking point I feel like I couldn’t do it (the German part that is) Katy I know what you’re thinking but it’s different when you are here! But I held it together pretty sure my comp could see right through me!! So later that night president Dunn had us do a roll play with are comps so what happened was one of us acted as Christ and the other as are self and the one acting as Christ would ask do you love me and we would answer and then they would tell something we were to do this 3 times. So on the second time my comp just looked at me and did not speak (and I was thinking did she forget what to say?) but then she looked at me and I know what I’m suppose but I need to and when she spoke she spoke with the voice of the lord and in German. Open your mouth and I will fill it. And in that moment I knew that I can do this that it will be hard and I will struggle with the language but if I will open my mouth and give my all he will make-up the difference.  And that’s when I started crying and so did my comp. And the next day we went back to teach and I really didn’t want to go back and teach. But I prayed before I went in that I could have peace and be able to use the German that I know to teach. And the lord made good on his part I could understand and I could speak in was very broken bad German but I should speak. Family I know the Lord knows us and he will always be with us when we invite him to come with us.

The food here is not so good it does bad thing to your insides!!!!!!!!!! Also my comp s name is sister Imbach and she truly is amazing I love her so much!

Also Travis it’s not like HP you have to take your stuff to your room. But when I got here the other sister were like woooooo yeahhhhhhhh welcome!!!!! And then they asked where are you going and I said Frankfurt Germany and two sisters started yelling sister we have been waiting for you (these are our older sisters but they are leaving tomorrow so that kind of sad and happy) but it was really great because it felt like I was coming home even though it was to a new place.

So funny story, well first thanks for the green day package! I was the first one to get a package to everyone went with me to get it so it was really fun to get a bra with all the elders around!! hahaha mostly my comp and I just laughed and closed the box.

Well I’m running out of time but know that I love you all   ich  wiess, dass das buch mormom wahr ist   und ich wiess dass jesus christus ist mein erloser. und gott ist mein himmlischer vater und er libet mich und er hort und amforten micn gebeten. ich wiess dass thomas s monson ist wehr propheten hoete. namen jesus christi amen

Love Sister Kingery
