The MTC is amazing!

Update from Beth ---

The MTC is amazing! 

I've had some rough days but mostly because I've been hard on myself. I love all the learning and the sisters in my district are awesome!

My companion, Sister Anderson, is from Springville and is also going to Columbus. The other two are going to New Jersey. Sister Anderson is really shy but starting to open up. I’ve just been struggling with talking too much in lessons, but its getting better.

The Sundays here are amazing!!! Last Sunday we got to watch the Brigham City Temple dedication. I met four elders that are serving in the Virginia Richmond Mission and leave this Wednesday. This Sunday was Fast and Testimony and Mission Conference! Next weekend is General Conference and all classes and teaching experiences were cancelled. We get to watch conference, write letters, and study! Plus every Sunday we get to do a temple walk for an hour. It’s awesome. 

My Zone Leaders, Elders Bateman and Gibbons are hilarious. I get to attend a lot of meetings with them as Coordinating Sister. We got two new districts last Wednesday with four sisters and fourteen elders! It’s weird but they already look up to us and we’re only a week ahead of them.

The Elders are amazing and I love the chivalry they carry towards the sisters. Of course, they are all much younger than me, but my cover is working well thus far. The Sisters know my age but are sworn to secrecy… haha…

I am learning so much and can’t wait to get to Ohio and serve all the people the Lord is preparing for me. I found this scripture while sitting in the Provo Temple which just confirms to me that I am doing the right thing. 


       2 Therefore, follow me, and listen to the counsel which I shall give unto       you.
       3 Behold, and lo, I have much people in this place, in the regions round   about; and an effectual door shall be opened in the regions round about in this eastern land.
       4 Therefore, I, the Lord, have suffered you to come unto this place; for thus it was expedient in me for the salvation of souls.
       5 Therefore, verily I say unto you, lift up your voices unto this people; speak the thoughts that I shall put into your hearts, and you shall not be confounded before men;
       6 For it shall be given you in the very hour, yea, in the very moment, what ye shall say.
       7 But a commandment I give unto you, that ye shall declare whatsoever thing ye declare in my name, in solemnity of heart, in the spirit of meekness, in all things.
       8 And I give unto you this promise, that inasmuch as ye do this the Holy Ghost shall be shed forth in bearing record unto all things whatsoever ye shall say.

I love this Gospel!

I love and miss everyone!
Sister Beth Green
