Halla mej Familj!!! Jag ar bra och glad att MTC!!
I don't know how to type those 3 special letters so all that is spelled wrong but it is what it is.
I am looooooving it here. My district is amazing and everyone has there own personality that just works. There are 9 Aldster and 1 Systrer in our district. Alster Peterson, Bradley, Smith, Van Alfen, Heiner, Jacobs, Bouton, Treat and me. Systre Allred is the only girl. Elste Jacobs is going to Norway but everyone else is going to Sweden. We all have a great spirit with us and the classroom is always full of it. The language is hard but really not that bad! All the grammar is very similar to English so you can almost just directly everything. We have given 4 lessons in Swedish and our investigator is progressing very well.
I have two companions and their names are Aldste Treat and Bouton. They are very smart guys and have a very strong testimony. Treat is from Idaho Falls and just got out of high school. Bouton is from Florida and has been at BYU for three years but he is only 18..... Also, Aldste Peterson is from Cali and he is my age and we have already planned to go to BYUI and be roomies hahaha plus we are trying to get Aldste Treat to join too! Our DL is Aldste Bradley and He is From Oregon. he is a great guy and will make a great missionary.
My Teachers are Broader Marchant (idk how to spell it) and Broader Bush. They both went to Sweden on their mish (obvi) and they are wonderful teachers. I can understand everything they say in class I just sometimes don't have the vocab to reply like I would want.

This place has a very special spirit. I can't believe how much I like living in Utah hahaha. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to serve and I am excited to go to Svenska. Christ loved his father so much that he did his fathers will for his entire life and then gave his life so that we could all return to the Father. How can I even come close to the amount of love that he has given me? Well I can start with serving a mission. This gospel is so important to me and I can't wait to be in Sweden. I love you all and I can not wait to hear from you all, love ya!!!
