I can't believe I've been out here for 1 whole month. It's gone by so fast and I'm so sad that I only have 17 months lefts of this amazing adventure. But! Exciting news...today I got my travel plans for April 1st. I leave the MTC like at 3:30 am and then our flight from SLC leaves at 8:30. We arrive in Seattle at 9:34 and then our flight out of there is at 11:10. We will arrive in Vancouver, Canada at 12:08 pm on April 1st. Crazy, I can't believe it!! I get to travel with my companion which is a prayer answered because I would be scared to travel alone. I also get to travel with 5 other missionaries!! Wow, it's so crazy that I have less than 2 weeks in the MTC.

Hermana Wilson has perfected her duck noise...she scares everyone when she does it. So so funny. And Elder Barry has perfected his sloth noise and crawl. I think I have the weirdest district ever...:)
Oh I forgot to tell you...Elder Cook came last week. Yeah...he is so cool. He talked about the process of assigning missions. He told us that there are 3 main things that they focus on when assigning calls. They receive inspiration for which mission presidents the missionary would work best with, or what people need them the most, or which language they need to learn. Both him and his wife spoke. They are amazing...it was great to hear from an apostle of God.
There have been a few moments this week that both Hermana Wilson and I have just broke down. It's so stressful here and I'm constantly reminded of my weaknesses. The hardest thing is taking care of Hermana Garcia. She was in the older district and she is supposed to be in Cali right now, but the night before she left she had to have an emergency back surgery. So not only are we constantly busy with our own schedule, but now we have to take care of another person. But through many prayers, the Lord has softened my heart. Now, I'm grateful for the opportunity to serve already.

Elder Barry came up with our new district saying..."Necesita Jesus"....or "you need Jesus". Haha...he goes around saying that to everyone.
Haha so funny story. The other day we were practicing rolling our "r's" and one elder in our district, Elder Hirschi was trying his hardest but all he made was a hissing noise while looking like a helpless otter. He said, "wow, that's a struggle." Then his comp, Elder Armstrong said, "What? Your face?" It was so funny....Elder Armstrong was like "That's not what I meant". Haha.
There have been protesters outside the MTC yesterday and today. I don't understand why people would waste their time tearing others down. My teacher came into class last night saying that they called her "a deceiver and that she was leading us down to Hell". She told us that she knows this church is absolutely true. She wouldn't have served for 18 months and continue to serve by teaching new missionaries if it wasn't. I want to add my testimony to hers. I absolutely know that this church is true. I have felt the Spirit so many times throughout my life. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he truly did see God and Jesus Christ. He restored this church. We have all the truth of the gospel on the earth today because of him. I would not give up 18 months of my life if I did not know for a surety that this church is true.
I hope all of you are having great lives. And keeping it real. Thanks for everything! Love you all! Love, Hermana Hoth
