First Week @ MTC

Things are going great! I am learning to say my prayers in spanish. It snowed this week in Provo and is cold. There were problems with my visa, so I will be staying in Provo until December 20th. Keep the letters coming. I love you all! Pura Vida!!!

As you know, you now just drop your missionary off at the curb. Kaila had a special greeting. She was greeted by her first cousing Michael Peterson. I am not sure who was happier to see who. It was a real treat for both of them. As you can see in Kaila's picture she is happy and ready to serve the Lord. Mom
