First Week in the MTC

I’m learning a lot, I feel like ive grown up alot, im more happy, smiling more, more caring about others. The MTC is full of amazing people and the Spirit is constantly here.
My companions name is Sister Tiu, proucuoned choo, shes from the phillipines. She is so sweet, but it can be frustrating with the language barrier and culture differences. She began to cry when our teacher an irishwoman, sister loynes asked what our weaknesses were and we said the language. She got a blessing from the elders in our district.
the other sisters are sister stuart and sister brooks. stuart is from utah and brooks from england. we are like the very best of friends, always laughing til we cry. Im having so much fun. I miss home, and i always talk about texas. they say my accent is very noticeable which im bummed about haha. but i do say yall. there are people from all the world here! i wrote about it my letter, which you should get in week.
next wednesday i head to the mission field, southern england and get to meet president millar. England is great, beautiful lands, and amzing people. Its like a second home already.
Anyway dont worry to much about me! I love it here, the Lord is with me and I know He watching over you. I feel yalls love everyday. Im attaching pictures!
-love sister brittain xx

(Note: Sister Brittain has also met Elder Holland and Elder Nelson)

18 months Here I come!

IMG_1244

In about 4 days I will officially be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It has been a long, sometimes difficult journey to that day, but the time for me to wear that ever famous nametag is fast approaching. Am I nervous? HECK YES. Mainly for the fact that I have a layover in the middle of London. Thank heavens they speak English in England. But I’m mainly excited and anxious. Leaving home by myself to a foreign land to preach the gospel is a privilege and I could not be more proud to be a representative of Jesus Christ.
Being a full-time missionary, means I must follow the “mission rules”. Which like any rules, are set for a purpose. One of these rules is I’m only allowed to email my friends and family once a week. No phone calls, except Mother’s Day and Christmas. This is so missionaries don’t get to homesick, and don’t spend all their time calling home. But have no fear, I’m not disappearing from the earth. I will have this blog, that will be updated from my emails. It will also have my current mailing address in case you feel like being old fashioned and want to send me a letter (please do!). So this will be the place to get the current updates on me as I spend the next 18 months of my life in England. This will be the last post before I leave, so the next one will be coming straight to you from England! Thank you to everyone and I will miss you all!

-abby xoxo
