Welcome to my mission

The idea behind this is solely due to my brother being in my mission and to remember everything that happened back in the day. I remember a lot of people and loved everyone that I met while in Belo Horizonte as well as every other city that I served in. It also gives people a chance to really know what happens in a mission and how we learn the language and may provide someone with the desire to know more. This is not in any way for self promotion because anything I gain from this opportunity and experience is based upon the Spirit blessing me with memories and reminders of one of the best if not the best experiences of my life. I am grateful that my brother Donnie is serving there as well. It is a fun and common thread between us and I hope that he gains as much from his mission as I have.

I hope that whoever reads this gets a bit of an idea as to who I am through my writing style and is willing to accept that not everyday is a great day, but everyday has its memories whether good or bad. I may place some personal conjecture or comments from today if a day hit a nerve or was a great day. I will mark what is from now and what is straight from my journal. I actually did write everyday, so you will have a daily post of everything that occurred. I didn't write manuals while in the MTC because while there was a LOT of spiritual moments, I was getting in the mood/habit to write a journal since I hadn't written in months to years prior to.

All this said, let's begin on Day 1 in the MTC...nothing better than jumping right into this!
