1st MTC email from Josh

"Wow. This week has been quite an experience. It has only been seven days, but I feel like I've been here for years. Its hard to describe my perception of time, but its very much altered from how it was when I was at home."

Note: Above is an excerpt from a lengthy first email from Josh that was loaded with excitement. It seems that he's caught the vision of service and obedience and is enjoying experiences to solidify those principles. He and his companion were asked to be zone leaders while at the MTC, which inspires him to be a good example to others. He mentioned that the MTC president, at the request of General Authorities showed a particular interest in the district going to India. Josh leaves Utah for India on November 10.

1st MTC letter from Josh!

We received our first MTC letter from Josh today, which he wrote on his first day at the MTC. He mentioned that he already saw a few of his friends (Cody Monson from our neighborhood, and Erik Bloom, Cameron Harris from the Olney Ward in Maryland). He also said he has never wanted so badly to work so hard as he does being a missionary.

Farewell visit to Zion

Josh and Dad do one more hike in Zion National Park before his departure. It was a beatiful day! We enjoyed a "larger than life" object lesson about perspective and an "exercise in scale."
