Well I am leaving to the missionary field on Tuesday morning!! My flight plan is from SALT LAKE to JFK NEW YORK then to VIENNIA, AUSTRIA then on to DNEPROPETROVSK, UKRAINE.
This week has been great! I got to sing for about 7 General Authorities of the Church and of church leaders from around the world! Its was a amazing opportunity! We sang "Missionary Medley" and "More Holiness Give Me"!!
Elder Anderson of the Twelve Apostles came and spoke to us here in the MTC! He discussed how we can teach the gospel of Jesus Christ so simply and beautifully that even a child or a professor can understand it!
I’m packing right now for Tuesday and it is tough doing so, haha. I have learned to love this place! The spirit is so strong and powerful!!
So a funny story about me, My mother sent these information cards of me that had a picture of me, my address and my email and a few elders got a hold of them and started placing those cards all over the MTC and random people would come up to me and would say "Are you the card guy????" haha. It was terrible. I got called up to the District President’s office, who is the head honcho of the MTC and we had a little chat, haha. But it all worked out well. I thought I was going to get sent home or transferred, but luckily I’m am still headed to Ukraine.
Well I am extremely busy and I will write more next time but I got to get ready to leave! I want to leave you all with my testimony that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father lives and that they love and know us perfectly! That Joseph Smith is a real Prophet of God! I know that when we struggle and come to Christ he will help us with no matter what. I have complete Faith in my Savior!!!!
Well my address will change to the Ukraine address, so don’t send any letters or anything here, only to the Ukraine one. Love you all so very much and I pray for each one of you every chance I get (and that is a lot because I’m a missionary). Wish you all the best and please tell me how you are all doing. Love you all! Don’t forget to look at the blog for pictures!!!
Next time in Ukraine!!!!!!!!

So mom, my carry-on is the heavy case shell and it weighs 8 pounds by itself and I’m only allowed a 18 pounds for my carr-on. Should I take this carry-on or should I get a backpack and not bother about this case? And if so should I send it home or what? Also I’m sending a package home of some things!
Hey mom, could you send me some stories regarding my family history on both sides regarding to faith and following the lord please?!!
Wish Dylan good luck in wrestling and that I will be praying for him.
So an elder in my branch Elder Kay is from the same ward as Alicia Smith. He is friends with the twins, so if you could tell them. It’s a small world.
