I can't even began to tell you how thankful I am to have it in my life. Being at the MTC, I get to have a better understanding of just how wonderful this gospel really is.To start things off, about being here at the MTC, I love it here!!!!!!! I really do!! I don't want to go next week!
I believe that the name tag on the missionaries chest is a badge of kindness. Everywhere I go, everyone always says "hi" or are there to help me out. I truly feel a kinship with the missionaries here.
I have two companions, Sister Oliva (From Maryland, Washington D.C.) and Sister Barrett is from Highland, Utah. I get along with them so well. We work so well as a companions. I don't mind that I'm stuck with them 24/7.
As for my district. I love them! They are like a family to me. From the moment we all met we became a strong, together, district. There's only 4 Elders in my district. They are between the ages of 18 and 19. They may be young, but their testimony of the gospel is way beyond their years. I really admire them. They are always looking for ways to serve and look out for us.
Which, I just so happen to be leading the choir for that! I somehow ended up with the calling of Music coordinator. Not sure how that happened. They think I lead music so well, and I know a lot about music. lol
I'm now in charge of a choir and running the music program here. I think the first day I freaked out and had no clue what I'm doing. Now I know that GOD just wants me to know how to lead, and do it by having me lead in front of an apostle. I don't know yet which apostle that will come on Sunday. I'm sure it will be great....maybe..
Heavenly Father knew what he was doing by having me serve a mission. I can feel the angels of the Lord watching over me. Already they've literally saved my life! I'm so thankful that I'm worthy and the God saw fit that I am to be saved. I wish I can have the words to tell you how amazing this gospel is. I love it!!
Well, my time is up. Miss you and love you!
[Note from Jackie's mom] Jackie will be in the MTC until the 23rd of April and would love hearing from you!
