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
