Colby's first letter from the MTC 2/16/07

Dear Family,
It is Friday. I was suppose to write you on Wednesday night, but I wasn't told that until Thursday morning. Everything is going awesomely. My companion is Elder Shaw from Kaysville. We are rooming with Elder Muir and Elder Ward. They are all preparing to serve in the Congo Africa mission. I am the only one out of the four to be going to Canada. In our district though we have 2 people going to Ghana, and 3 people going to Congo and people are going to Montreal.
The language so far is coming pretty good. We can now pray, bear testimony, approach people and introduce ourselves in French. People tole me that these first few days would be the worst and longest, but they really aren't that bad. The 11 hours you are in the classroom just seems to fly by. The food here is good, which is probably a bad thing, because I am in a classroom for 11 hours a day. I look forward to Saturday because that's our first gym period.
Well, I should probably wrap it up here soon. We just ate lunch really fast and thought we would write our families between lunch and class. Class starts here in 5 minutes. I love you all and hope you are all doing great.


PS--You should send me some pictures because I didn't bring any. Oh yes, I forgot to mention to Tyler that 2 of my 3 roommates know Abbey, or at least who Abbey is. Just thought that I would let you know.

Now who's the stud?

That's a great letter. I'm glad he's doing so well. Can't wait for him to get our paintings!
