Ola! Tudo Bem!
I am finally at the MTC! In Provo, Utah...not where I originally planned going, but I am still having a great time waiting for my visa. My first companion is Elder Thompson and he's from Ohio. There are four people in our District (group of 14) who have now got there visas and travel itinerary, including my companion. They leave next Tuesday so I will get a new companion then.
