Well, I made it to the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Provo, Utah.
I am wearing my missionary badge and am officially Orton Shimai.
I was assigned to a district that will be here 9 weeks learning Japanese. Since I already know the language, I will be switched to a different district next week and stay a total of 3 weeks.
The spirit is so strong here and everyone is very helpful and friendly.
Here is a picture of me with the other sisters in my current district (we are all going to the Japan Tokyo Mission).
