Hello again :)

It sounds like you all are having fun!!! That's was crazy about Detroit filing bankruptcy! I guess I just have to show the city how they can find true happiness :) I'm glad Kraig is ok, that sounds pretty scary!!! I'm kind of jealous of you all watching fireworks, I wish I could have seen them, but I'm probably having more fun than you all anyways :) Just Kiddin..... kind of :)

I can't believe I've been in the MTC for a whole week! It is so weird because it feels like I was just saying goodbye to you but then it feels like I have been here FOREVER!!! The MTC is such an amazing place!! The spirit is sooooo sooooo strong and I can't believe how much I have learned and grown in just a week. I truly feel like a different person! I'm not going to lie me and my companions have a a few rough spots but we have been able to work through them :) I keep telling them that there is a reason we are all together and we need to learn from each other. I know Heavenly Father is trying to make me strong by putting me in a trio where I have really had to step up and be a leader. But in saying this I feel like I have learned so much from them!!

 One of my favorite parts of this week was watching the Character of Christ by David A. Bednar. My favorite part was when he said, "Your Mission is not about YOU!" It really hit me hard. I know that as I serve and constantly trying to be like Christ while teaching that I can help myself, along the way. SERVICE is really soooooo important!!! Ah!!!!! there is so much more I want to talk to you all about but I am out of time! I love you all so much!!!! Thanks for everything and I'll write you a letter today!!!! Stay safe and don't play with fireworks :)

Love, Sister Tracy :)

First Letter as a Sister Missionary!!!!

I have been wanting to talk to you all but my P-day is on Thursday and since we had only been in the MTC 1 day, we didn't get a P-day this week. But our Branch President told us we could hurry and write you a quick email, so you know we are alive!!  Anyways the MTC is crazy spiritual!! I have never been so spiritually fed so well and for so long. My mind is exhausted from constantly thinking of how to be a better missionary and teacher. But I love it! I have learned so much and feel so improved already. I'm in a trio, with Sis. Mo'unga and Sis. Luke. They are completely different and don't know how well we all get along. I have a lot more patience than Sis. Mo'unga does. But we have had a lot of compainion interventions and have started to be able to work together better. Trio's are hard though. Anyways I have sacrament meeting right now so I have to go. Love you all so much!! Thanks for everything you have done for me!!!

P.S. I got Melinda's letter and journal(thanks I love it sooooooo much!!!) and Dad's letter and Mom's DearElder! Everyone gets jealous of my letters :) My family is the coolest! I'll write you all back on Thursday! Have a great Sunday!!!!

Today is the Day!

Well today is the day!! I am so super excited to start this amazing journey to bring others unto Christ! I remember singing I hope they call me on a mission and now that day is finally here!! I am so thankful for the amazing examples that I have had in my life! My family, uncles and aunts, grandparents, my ward, friends, and especially my parents! I Love this gospel with all my might, mind, and strength and love how happy I am being a part of the true church! Can't wait to share this happiness with the people of Detroit, Michigan! Remember "I can do everything through him which gives me strength"                                              
   Love ya lots, Sister Tracy :)
