Path Leading to the MTC
Our Mission Call did not include time in the Mission Training Center (MTC) for language training. We are scheduled to formally report to the Provo Utah MTC on June 29, 2009. We will be flying to Uruguay on July 10, 2009 so we will only have about 10 days in the MTC. We have spoken with our Mission President, Fred Ashby and he strongly suggested that we learn the Spanish language so we could have a more enjoyable mission experience. We spoke with the people at the Mission department and asked if we could report earlier and learn the language. They indicated that we could report early but that they would not have housing for us until June 29th. We could utilize the language tudoring program that they offer but we would need to find our own housing. We have found housing and will be leaving for the Provo MTC on May 14th with stops along the way in Idaho and Utah to visit our families prior to our entering the training program. Christina will be flying to Utah to photograph a wedding and will drive our car back home to Renton.
