Still at the Provo MTC, but scheduled to go out to Columbia on October 22

So this Tuesday we had Dallin H. Oaks come and talk to us! It was so cool. He was an amazing speaker. They broadcast his talk to every MTC in the world! I sang in the MTC choir, so that was way cool. There was a total of 500 missionaries!! How cool is that. We sang a version of Praise to the Man that was written for the BYU men's choir. It was so good. The spirit was incredible as we sang it.

Days here last forever, and yet I can't believe how long it's been either. Time just seems to fly! I've learned so much. I've never had to learn so much in such a crammed period before. And yet I learn it all. My spanish is so much better now than when i first got here. The growth that happens here is incredible. I'm pretty sure the Spirit is constantly here. it's been really amazing too, my district feels like my family. I've only know them for 9 days, but it seems like we've know each other for forever! I love them all! :) Also we are the coolest district by far. Like no contest. We have nightly devotionals, no one told us to, we just felt inspired, and those devos have the strongest spirit. Those discussions are led by the Spirit for sure. We learn the most amazing things. Every person adds just the most profound thoughts, and they come from everyone! 

I went through an endowment session at the Provo Temple this morning, and it is so beautiful. It is huge! The celestial room is super beautiful. I'll send a couple pictures. 

I am just loving it here. There is no where else I would rather be. I know our lives are being led by the Spirit! It's the most incredible thing. Being a missionary so far is pretty amazing.

Mom-Will you share this with everyone? thanks :)

Love, Elder Evenson
