Letter #2

Hello family!!

It is soo crazy to think that it has been a week and that I'm leaving for New Mexico soon! Like what?! its too crazy! 

Alright so I'm trying to remember everything that happened last time i e-mailed. Thank you for the easter package! i LOVED it! getting packages and letters is like gold!! 
I still have candy! they wont let us eat it in any rooms or anything so the only time i have
to eat it is before bed or in the morning...which I'm ok with! ;)  

I have gym time here so sister poh and i usually play volleyball. and while we were playing i met a sister named Sister Tahaafea! And i just love her so much! She is from Tonga and is going to the Philippines! and over this week we have gotten really close! And i told her i would come visit her in Tonga. So FYI when i get home from my mission im going to Tonga then to Australia, ( to visit sister Piahana!) 
i have met a lot of new friends which i love, but none of them live in America.... -_-

 Also we had a class called in field orientation! it just taught us about being out in our missions and learning different things. so it was fun, i met an Elder from Puru and his companion who is from Mexico! Its so awesome meeting all these people from all over the world and we are all here doing one thing! :) 
The food here was really good for the first few days, now its getting questionable and i
really just want Cafe Rio or Chick fil a! 

So like i said in my last letter, we teach our teachers, who act like investigators so that's good, but this last Monday Sister Poh and i got an investigator called a TRC. Which it is someone who comes to the MTC and they are either a member acting as an investigator or they are a real investigator, BUT THEY DON'T TELL YOU! So we have this TRC who's name is Tayla.. and she is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard! And ahh
it just stresses me out thinking about it. she was asking really hard questions that niether of us could answer! I was getting really mad and stressed because i felt like i didn't know anything! and this weeks been hard because Sister poh and i have had some ups and downs and then feeling like i dont know enough to teach someone; its been really hard. I have a teacher whose name is Brother Cena and he's from Italy and hes the most amazing teacher ever! Everyone calls him DR. Cena because he knows so much and blows your mind. but he really helped me to not be stressed and to understand more.

I read in Ether 12: 3,6 and those really helped knowing that i cant and don't need to know everything, but if i have faith, even in the really hard dark times, the lord WILL help. because yesterday sister poh and i taught tayla and it went AMAZING!!!!!!!

Im going to really miss the mtc but......

I LEAVE FOR NEW MEXICO THIS MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but i have to wake up and be ready to leave at like 4 am! ...

My flight is at 9;45 ish i think, sorry i left the paper in my room but i know its around there, and i just asked today if i can call and i think i can! :) i think i have to go to the MTC store and get like a phone card or something? im not sure but i hope i can! there are a lot of elders going with me to NM and only one other sister but she's Spanish speaking. but yeah that's been this week! 

 OH! and i went to the provo temple today.... AMAZING!! it is so pretty and it was weird walking off the mtc! haha i could have run to Eric and Hayley! but it was fun because everyone at the temple was so nice to us so it'll be fun to see what its like when im in NM! Anyways i love you all SOO every much!!!! :)

with love from me to you,
Sister Makus :)
