Hey Mama and Dad,
Its your son,ELDER DAY. The MTC is treating me wonderfully, I am eating a lot of food and I gained a pound! So I am eating well. I am a district leader and there are some things I need to work on in leadership skills that I have realized. Our companions are amazing and mine (Elder Scarle) is so amazing. He is a Utah farmer who worked 14 hour days installing fences so he is "go, go, go!" While I am "slow, slow, slow!" Cuz I take a bit more time in doing things and getting to know people and stuff. He is probably the best Comp. I can have. Although I should take back what I said earlier, he loves getting to know people just as much as I do, probably more. He is awesome.
We had a Q&A with David A. Bednar and that was super cool. We also had a talk given to us by Dallin H. Oaks. That was cool too! There have been so many blessings and such strength and comfort that I 've felt and I've written about a page a day in my journal. Its crazy and I was part of my first priesthood blessing that I was the mouthpiece and my companion and I were shaking, it was crazy.
I'm trying to keep my life story on a "down low" and its worked so far until that blood draw thing then it was hard to keep it on the "down low". (Jeremy visited the MTC doctor for a mysterious bruise and the doctor ended up taking a blood draw, calling his cardiologist and called back to say that Jeremy was fine.) But yeah, all my life story is seeping out.
There's pasta in a few meals and other than that I've been trying to sleep (but not really).
I'll write about all my elders and sisters in our district next week.
Elder Jeremy Day
