Wednesday was an absolutely crazy day. Saying goodbye to my mom and friends at the MTC was hard, but SOOO exciting. I seriously feel so blessed. It felt surreal to look at the line of missionaries waving to greet me as we drove up. But the coolest part was receiving my new badge. Sister Fisher. What a dream come true! I'm still in awe.
My first companion's name is Sister S. She's from Draper, Utah and she's so sweet! I keep telling her we were meant to be companions haha. We're living with two other sisters, and I just adore all of them. And luckily, we're all headed to the Chesapeake mission! Blessing from heaven!
So the first person I met was Sister F. She escorted me from my car to my residence dorm room area. I was on the 4th floor. And there was no elevator. The two of us had to drag two fifty pound bags and a carry on plus my shoulder bag up four flights of stairs. After, I was sweating like a sinner in church (er- the MTC?). It was pretty rough haha.
After that I got to meet my district! Everyone seems pretty great. Two elders are also going to Chesapeake so that's super rad.
After our district meeting, we got to have a mass meeting to introduce us to the MTC presidencies. 700 missionaries entered the MTC today so it was pretty chaotic. The Spirit was overwhelmingly strong, and I just felt so pumped to be there! They had us sing "We'll Bring the World His Truth" and where the lyric is normally "We will be the Lord's missionaries" they had us sing "We are now the Lord's missionaries" and I was near tears. I'm now the Lord's missionary! How blessed am I?!
