Tanner's first letter arrived today!
Hola mi Familia!
Just quickly writing to let you know I'm doing well. Day one at the MTC was very overwhelming but this is normal everyone says. I have a good companion, Elder R, he is a pretty chill guy. Sometimes he can be really quiet but that's okay, he will open up. I love my district of 12 missionaries already! We have 4 sisters and 8 elders. The MTC is tough work, they definitely keep you busy. I don't have much time to write but I will email home on Thursday, that's when my p-day is next week. I can already tell I'm going to LOVE being a missionary. The spirit is so strong here it's incredible. I love you guys so much!! I know I will need to rely on the Lord a lot on my mission. Even after one day I can already tell this will be the hardest thing I've ever done. But I will LOVE it! Thanks for all the treats you guys snuck into my bag! HA! I'm praying for you guys! Love you Dad, Mom, Riley & Zach!!
Elder Tanner Hughes
