First Letter from the MTC

Dear family,
Thank you for all the things you have done for me over the past couple of years. The MTC is awesome, I absolutely love it.  I have gotten a lot of instruction over the last two days, and it is amazing to see the information I have remembered.  This experience was a lot better than I expected it to be!! I have four elders in my district, they are all amazing and very chill.  It's just like having a group of friends here.  Their names are Elder Thomson, Elder Beuhner, Elder Hansen, and Elder Rollins.  Elder Rollins is related to the Martin family in Evanston.  I am glad I started out with awesome companions.  My personal companion and I, (Elder Thomson) are zone leaders at the MTC.  Another really cool thing I found out tonight, is our Branch President, President Rodney J. Brown, was Grandpa Hatch's last companion on his mission.  It was the coolest thing ever.  I am excited for what lies ahead for me.  I would write more but my hand is cramped because I have never done this before.  Say hi to everyone for me! Thanks! I will write soon! Tell Nathan to keep his eyes focused towards his mission, and study Preach My Gospel, which is the number one thing used.
Love, Elder Welling
