New Elders and Sisters came in on Wednesday. All the ones that came into our zone are going to Independence Missouri. Food has always been pretty good. Nothing to complain about. Have to pack tonight. That's not going to be fun. West campus is so much different than main campus. So if you ever hear stuff about the MTC from someone who is on main campus, just know its nothing like what it is here. I've been to main campus twice and that alone has made me so grateful I'm on west campus. It just has a much nicer feel about it. Went to the temple last Monday and today. Oh and yes I realized I left my umbrella when it was raining last week. I'm glad we bought that coat before I left because it came in handy. I'll probably need you to send some more of my t shirts in awhile. I don't think I brought enough. Got a hug from the MTC President. Him and his wife just got back from like a four day thing with all the mission presidents in Utah and Elder L. Tom Perry. So they shared their excitement about us going to President Chambers. Most of our zone is going to SLCS. Only two sets of missionaries aren't.
I can never think of what I need to tell you when I'm actually writing you. So... yeah.... Oh yeah I remember now. So it feels like I've been here my whole life. Like I struggle to remember a time before now. I look at pictures of everyone, the kids, Amanda, etc. It's like I don't recognize anyone very well. The Elders and Sisters in my zone I feel like I've known them my whole life. Its such a weird feeling. I look at Timp (Mt. Timpanogos) every day and its not the same Timp I lived under for two months. I don't know. Tell everyone Hi for me. Well have a great week! I'll talk to you from
SLCS I guess. -Elder McKinney
