|Elder Jacob Perry, Canada Toronto Mission|
Hi Mom and Dad,
I have been able to teach lessons this week by myself and
learn just how inexperienced I am at French. Elder Thompson and I spent some
extra hours training in French this week because we want to be ready for the
What do we do in our spare time? Most of that time was sent
just talking with the elders and singing songs that we remember from before our
missions. We think that we are not actually that bad, but we won't sing in
front of the entire MTC. The rest of my day consist of eating dinner and then
having three hours of language class because it’s on the schedule and we need
the practice. We are doing Brother Adams’ Mental Training Class tomorrow and he
seems like he will teach it right. I am looking forward to it. We had Field Orientation
Training yesterday where they show you kind of how the field will work and
ideas of how to enhance the missionary work in your area.

Going for "The Bad Look"
Just in case, let Grandma and Grandpa know that I am getting
their letters and I will write when I can. These last few weeks have been very
busy and I have not had time to write a handwritten letter for them. I will
email them when I can. Express how sorry I am and I will express that sorrow
when I email them.
My mental health is good! I am a little sad leaving my current MTC Frenchies District and because of the change, but I
will improvise, adapt and overcome. (Heartbreak Ridge quote). I will be OK and
all is well.
|We Want YOU to take the Missionary Discussions!|
D. Todd Christofferson came and spoke to us about missionary work. I also saw Valyn Bayle who sings “My Kindness Shall Not Depart from Thee” in Ephraim’s Rescue at the temple today. There has been so many cool people I have come in contact with the people here are the best of the best. I am so glad I got the chance to leave Vernonia and have the opportunity to serve in Canada.
