July 18, 2009

Dear Friends and Family,

All is well on my first day here at the MTC. I only have 15 mins to write cuz its lights out at 10:30. So sorry if this isn’t very long. I love it here; it’s been amazing so far! Everyone is so nice and so helpful.

We had a lot of orientations today. We had a meeting about what to expect, & about the gym (which I am really excited for). We also met with the MTC Mission President and then with our Branch/District. Our branch has around 90 Elders/Sisters! That is huge; most branches have 20-30 members. There are tons of missionaries going to Russia. I have 2 companions, Sister Boggs (that is Tiana, the one I knew from before) and Sister Gilmore. They are both great! Sister Gilmore isn’t going to our mission.

Tomorrow we start our classes, so I’ll let you know how that goes. Oh, I am the senior companion, but then in 6 weeks we will switch. I miss you all so much.

I’m still a little nervous about my classes, but I know the Lord will help me. Well I only have a couple minutes left, but I want you to now how much I love and appreciate you. Thanks for all of your support. I know this is going to be an amazing experience. I know the church is true. I know that my Heavenly Father knows and loves me. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and I’m so thankful for His sacrifice for me. I’m so thankful to have this time to serve the Lord. I love you so much and I will write again soon, I’m not sure when that will be though. Haha! I’m still trying to get used to the rules and schedule.

Love always,

Sister Gneiting

PS I saw my friend Emily within 20 mins of being here. We ran into each other at the bookstore. We don’t have lunch or anything together, but our rooms are near each other, so we should see each other every day.
