Hey everyone!

This week was awesome! We got through to a lot of our TRC investigators which felt good! Me and Elder Cook got sick at the beginning of the week though but just chugged a gallon of dayquill and pushed on haha There’s no time to waste when your hastening the work!

Oh yeah and then on Tuesday me and Elder Cook got made zone leaders so that was kinda cool! Because there’s conference this week we don’t really have to plan much we just give tours to the new guys and act like we know what we’re doing haha! Then the next day was my Birthday! I loved having a birthday in the MTC because my district is so awesome! They kinda threw a surprise B-day party in the class room for me and we opened the Birthday package my fam sent me and we feasted on candy haha Oh and they made me a really cool card. It’s in one of the pics I sent and I made all the sisters wear those mustaches that came in the package!

My district is the best haha! Then the next day something really funny happened..... We woke up at 6 to go do service and when we got back to our residence the key wouldn’t let us in! I tried for 20 min to get it open and the lock wouldn’t move... so we had to call the key masters of the campus to come fix our door and it took them an hour to get there and another hour to get it open! We got a 2 hour nap that day in the hall! haha Well that’s all I’ve got for this week!

The MTC is treating me good! This week has been a blast. Well to start my week off I got a package from Rocky that had a bunch of candy in it with green paper that said I was a greeny  haha so that's what all the elders in my district call me now. So thanks Rock haha!

The next day was hard. We had class all day and devotionals but they were so awesome! I'm learning so much about the gospel and how simply beautiful it is and how beautifully simple it is at the same time haha if that makes any sense! The days are getting easier now and the days don't seem as long especially when you try hard to be obedient. I have seen so many small miracles just from the blessing of being obedient. Oh and I forgot to tell you everyone in my district... we have Sister Johnson, Sister Weaver, Sister Pullan, Sister Young, Sister Gableer, Sister Laurence, and the elders are Elder Butler, Elder Moss, Elder Finley, and Elder Cook. Elder Finley and Elder cook are my comps! They are so awesome and have such strong testimonies.

Oh and something funny\awesome that happened this week was a bunch of missionaries left this week on our floor and i was walking around the night before they were supposed to leave and they just gave me a ton of food because they can't take it with them so our whole room is just packed full of junk food now! haha And I'm trying not to eat it so I don't get fat but I fall into temptation on the daily! haha Well that's it for me this week. Love you all and you can send me letters on dear elder that the MTC can print off and give to me at anytime in the week.

Love Elder Taysom

Hey Fam!

The MTC is awesome! It’s just like Carter said (church all day long and you can never leave) haha but I love it! 

My zone is the best. My companion never showed up though so I got put in a trio so I get twice the fun! Elder Finley and Elder Cook are my best friends now and we are all going to the same mission. 

The rooms are small and packed. They get to -30 at night and they smell funny but it’s all part of the experience haha! I love it here and can’t wait to become the tool the Lord needs me to be for the people of Washington:) 

Anyway I gotta go! The church is true! bye

Look who Elder Taysom found at the MTC...Elder Teancum Buehner from our Sage Hollow Ward who is preparing to serve his mission in Jackson, Mississippi!
