A letter written on the airplane

Hello Family!

Katie! Sorry I am not sending you a personal note but I am tired of writing my address to so many people. I am having so much fun and the MTC is so awesome! You can feel the spirit so strong here it is amazing. You are right when you said I am learning so much.  French is coming! I can greet people, pray and testify in French already. I have already given two lessons in completely French. The 1st one did not go very well and we did not stick to our notes very well.  The 2nd one on the other hand went 100 times better! I know the gift of tongues is real and it is cool to be able to hold a simple conversation with someone. On my 1st day I got to the MTC I checked in and went straight to the room to learn French. Then we had some orientation and heard several speakers. Basically this first weekend has been very hectic and overwhelming because you are just thrown into the work.  But now it is Monday and things have gotten a lot better! Sunday was yesterday and it was so awesome! The spirit is just everywhere.  Today is my P-Day but I am going to San Francisco so I do not get a P-Day but I may be able to email tomorrow.  I saw Ben and it was cool but I have not seen him since and I have been looking out for him.  The Evans were awesome and we ate at Cafe Rio which was delicious. It is very social but we try to keep it more focused. I have 4 sisters in my district and 4 elders including myself.  Oh I am actually writing this on the plane fyi and I am in a 1st class seat with a window! So awesome.  I took some pics with the clouds. : )  I think that post cards would be awesome and would be cool! Let's do it! (Katie suggested in a letter that they send postcards of their areas back and forth.)

Je sais que L'Evangile de Jesus-Christ des Saints des Derniers Jours est vrai et que le Livre de Mormon est la parole de dieu! (I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.)

I am praying only in French and am getting better every day.

A la prochaine! (Until next time) Elder Pettingill


You will probably read what I gave Katie so I will spare you the details again. : )  Ca va bien! Je suis content que c'est bien en Folsom! J'apprendre beaucoup en le tempe que je suis ici. : ) (It's going well!  I am happy that things are good in Folsom!  I am learning a lot in the time that I am here.)

Je t'aime! (I love you!)

A la prochaine!  Elder Pettingill
