|Our MTC identification badges--this is how we got |
to eat and to get in and out of campus and buildings.
|Hey, the view out this window |
is pretty cool!!
|This is where Bangalore is!!|
This is the group of senior missionaries that entered the MTC the same day we entered. There were about 75 people in this group.
The first week we studied "Preach My Gospel" and practiced teaching other missionary couples as well as volunteers from the neighborhood around the MTC who role-played as investigators of the Gospel.
|We worked hard all day long |
but it was GREAT!!
|Our District with our instructor, Brother Gubler|
|Our District with our other instructor, Sister Yazzie|
|With our friends, Sister Day and Sister Nielson. |
They sought us out each day to find out
how things were going with us.
|We also went to the Provo Temple.|
Week Two: Our Welfare Training
There were eight Welfare Missionary couples on their way to different countries around the world. This was one of the largest groups of Welfare Missionaries the Church has had in several years.
|What a view!|
The rest of the week was filled with classes back at the MTC in Provo on such topics as Church Major Humanitarian Initiatives (like Mother/Infant Care Training of Medical Personnel, Water Projects/Sanitation, Wheel Chair Distribution, Vision Care Training, Immunizations, etc.); as well as Emergency Response and Recovery. We also had classes on taking care of our own health--such as purifying our own water and our mental health in a foreign land.
