Life in the MTC: Week Three

Elder Sweeten, Elder Jones, and Elder Struhs outside the Provo, Utah LDS Temple
Elder Jones had another great week in the MTC. He was able to watch General Conference with all the missionaries serving in both the Provo MTC and the Provo West campus! He knew a lot of Elders in the MTC choir, but since he had no choir experience, he wasn't able to participate. Darn it! We always knew Dallin should've been in Glee Club! :) Elder Jones also took a trip up to the Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake City for a Visa interview, and rode the train with some other missionaries who will be serving there! He also ran into his good friend from Carlsbad, Elder Jordan Anderson in the MTC this week! Look at those handsome CA missionaries! Elder Anderson will be serving in Australia speaking Mandarin. Dallin also has another MTC companion named Elder Sweeten from Utah. Here is an excerpt from his letter this week:

Hey Family! Love you all and having a blast here at the Missionary Training Center!

So to start off.... yes the bat and mouse story was really funny and made our whole week fun.  Be sure to tell everyone about it.

So to begin, I loved conference.  I can’t really say i had a favorite talk but it was all so good. I enjoyed all the talks in foreign languages.   It was really neat to have my prayer answers re-affirmed about a certain question I had.  I was seeking additional help and continue to ask for guidance all week.  The day before conference I was reading my scriptures in Doctrine and Covenants section 3 verse 2 which reads, “For God doth not walk in crooked paths, neither doth he turn to the right hand nor to the left, neither doth he vary from that which he hath said, therefore his paths are straight, and his course is one eternal round." And those exact words were said 3 times during conference! It was a great feeling to see my question and worries answered through conference! It was a tremendous feeling. 

I love the temple and I miss serving in the every Tuesday and Thursday.  

LOVE YOU!!!!!!!
Elder Jones is loving his Dr. Pepper stash his cousin Matt picked up for him.
