Finally our waiting time was gone and we reported to the MTC. What was expected to be a 5 day stay, has been adjusted because of visa paperwork. Despite the adjustments, the time here has been GREAT. We are learning about the Preach My Gospel book, working on our Russian language skills, and eating too much food.

One of the fun aspects here has been the reuniting with missionaries. We have seen 3 of the Mendon 2nd ward missionaries that have left our ward in the last 6-8 weeks. Additionally, we have seen three of the young missionaries from the USU 4th Stake, 2 Elders and 1 Sister.

So glad you guys have a Russia blog? I expect you will be able to keep this up as a sort of journal while you're gone? That is such a great idea and good for us at home to see what you're up to!

We are so thrilled you're off soon-and know you guys will be the best missionaries there! Those people will love you!

Eric and Christina
