First Letter from the MTC

Jordyn's weekly e-mail 
MTC 
Companion :  Sister Chipman 




the famous pose at the MTC.."Ha I'm going to Tacoma, Washington folks...come along and enjoy reading about my journey!! GO Sister Missionaries!!



Family,

Not to worry, I'm alive I'm super tired, but, I'm alive.  Today was awesome!  They literally don't give you any time to miss your family but, I am thinking of you!  When I'm not learning...yeah...I've learned a lot though.  It's been way fun!

My companion is super cute.  She's from Highland.  She actually Highland.  She actually knows Dax and Lachelle and Dionne (who she calls Dee haha!) I guess she played softball with Lachelle and "Dee" did her hair and said to look out for me, and we ended up as companions! Small world after allllll!

My district is super fun, There's a guy in it who is from orem and remembers me from Jr. High but, I have have absolutely no idea who he is.....so naturally I pretended to remember him:)

Lets see, I saw a guy from my BYU Ward, my Chem 1A last semester, and someone else but, I can't remember when.

The food here is tolerable.  I'm glad I'm only eating it for 12 Days though.
I'll write you more on my P-Day, I think it's Tuesday or Wednesday.

Love you Guys!
Jordyn

The lead-up and the drop-off

These are the last few days before I became Sister VerHoef. I got to spend time with family and friends, before getting dropped off at the Provo MTC. The sixth picture down starts the night where I was set apart as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by my Stake President, President Brady. That was a life-changing night people!

Me and Lexi (our dog)
You can't have a post without the dog. 

Seven of my nieces and nephews (plus the dog)

My brother and his son



Right after I got set apart

I was blessed to have my brother be able to help set me apart along with my dad and stake president
