Sister Stevens

Sister Stevens First Email

I've made it through the first night and full day at the mtc. It has been tough, I've had some tears but couldn't imagine being anywhere else! I have felt the spirit so strongly and I know I am where I am supposed to be! Its amazing how many missionaries are here and its crazy to think about all the lives they left behind too. Also the MTC is the biggest maze I have ever seen. Its so confusing! 
I was able to get a blessing from my branch president today for comfort and it was a blessing being able to talk to him. I am in good hands! 
My companion is the sweetest thing. She is from Payson and her name is Sister Liddiard. She is funny and considerate! My district is only 7 sisters and they are all amazing! The teachers are amazing too!
I'm extremely grateful I am only here for 12 days. I already feel like I have been here for months. I just need to take it one step at a time. I'm for sure overwhelmed at my calling and everything there is to do and learn, but I can do it! 
Dear elders work better for me in the MTC because I can get them that day! And then I wont have so many to read and respond to in 1 hour or less!
Thank you so much for all the emails! I can't read them tonight but hopefully on tuesday I can! 
Thank you for all the prayers! I need them ;) 
I know that Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of us and He is ALWAYS there whenever we need Him. I am definitely strengthening my relationship with Him. 
I LOVE and miss you so so so much!

Love, Sister Stevens
