How is it going everyone. I am doing very well. I have learned a lot here at the MTC. My testimony has grown a lot. I am thankful for my chance to serve. I was feeling bad for myself last night and we watched a talk that President Bednar gave to the missionaries in the MTC on Christmas a couple of years back. Its titled the "The Character of Christ". I am not sure if you can get access to the talk but if you can read or watch it!!! It really changed my perspective. I am very excited to be in Iowa. My plane leaves SLC at 6 a.m. We have to be ready to leave at 2:30a.m. We then have a 3 hour lay over in Dallas, Texas\Fort worth airport. I love you all! Have a great week!!

Here is Josh's First Letter
I am doing great! My testimony is being strengthened. I FLY out the 30th at 6 am. We are leaving the MTC at 2:30 am on the 30th. We have a 3 hour lay-over in Texas. I have bought some stuff at the bookstore here because we get it for half price. I am always tired, but I haven't slept passed 6:20 yet. We are usually up between 5:30 and 6:20. My companion is Elder Ellis. He is super smart. We follow rules that aren't even rules. Its good tho! My testimony is growing so strong. I am here because of my testimony. I love the Lord and this church! I hope the family is well. Don't hold back information thinking it will make me homesick. I wanna know it all, the good and the bad.
We are so proud of Josh and so happy for him! He has already got to meet up with some friends that are in the MTC as well! He told us he went to an amazing devotional on Sunday night at the Marriott Center. Josh is always telling Shayla and Trevin to be nice and an example to everyone. We are so excited to follow him through his mission!
