August 20, 2014 - Written letter received August 23, 2014
Area: Provo MTC
Companion: Elder Wells
How's everyone doing? You know, it's pretty crazy here. You know how when you are set apart and they say all your learning is sped up? Well, I now have a strong testimony in the power of priesthood blessings because this has been so true even on my first day here.
My companions name is Elder Wells. He is a pretty cool kid. Anyway, my district is AWESOME! Everyone has a good attitude which makes it easy to have a good one myself.
So one of the first people I saw when I walked in was Elder Wesley Geddes! (a family friend that used to live by us) It was good to see a familiar face.
It is really kinda weird to call everyone Elder. A little bit of a culture shock actually. I'm sure I will get used to it soon enough.
So my p-day is Wednesday so I can't write until then, but they made a special exception for today so we could write our families that we were doing ok.
That's about it! Expect pictures and a letter next Wednesday.
Love everyone so much!
Love Elder Shoemaker
