HI hi family!!!!! I love all of you so much!! I am alive and well here at the MTC!! it is my favorite thing ever!!! First off, my companions are so beautiful and I love them so much! I am in a trio with Sestra Redding (Dowdles friend) and Sestra Rhodes (who is just like Sister Plowman so I DIE when ever I talk about her.) So family, sorry for not crying when you dropped me off!! I was just too darn happy to be here! I love it guys... like more than I ever expected to love something ever! Within the first hour, I was introducing myself in Slovene! WHAT?!?!?! It is such a fun language!!! Dad-- last night, they took us to a room with Elder Christensen (from the district) and had us teach a lesson. Mind you-- 70 missionaries teaching one investigator and they needed someone to start. I remembered the sweet treat you gave me to eat after my first lesson and thought I needed to earn it! So I was the first to teach in front of everyone!!!! SO AWESOME!!! I did great!!!! Also, today after class, we were ending in a prayer and my teacher (who hasn't said one word in English so far) asked me to pray in Slovene. I wanted to say no... but I knelt down with my companions by my side and prayed. It was so awesome! I prayed for my family, thanked him for my companions (also prayed for them) prayed for help with the language, and thanked him for my opportunity to be a missionary. I love the MTC. I wont be able to write again until NEXT Thursday. I want you all to know that I love you and have been thinking about you all and praying for you and tonight i will pray for all of you individually in Slovene! I love you keep praying for me!!!!!!!!!
Love, Sestra Higgins
I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY
