September 1, 2014

We entered the MTC on September 2 last year, so tomorrow will be our one year anniversary.  It's hard to believe that we have been here that long.  Time has flown because we are having such a good time and we love the people here.

Our association with the young elders and sisters continues to be some of the most rewarding and spiritual experiences we are having.  We never knew that would be such an important part of our mission.  Supporting and helping them is always a joy, and we feel like proud parents when we see them in action, whether it's instructing, teaching, inviting or doing service.    

The traffic, and all the freeways, has been the most difficult thing for me to handle here.  When we drive a long distance, I usually have to sit in the back seat and close my eyes.  I'm getting better though and last Tuesday, I actually drove from here to Glen Burnie on the freeway.  I was proud of myself, and did pretty well.

Friday night we had the fun experience of attending the annual "Mormon Night" baseball game at Camden Yards.  It was so much fun and we enjoyed all the commotion and excitement.  Ken said it was like musical chairs and a Chinese fire drill all in one, and he was right.  All the missionaries were very excited to be together and there was constant motion.  Below are a few of the pictures from that night.

We waited for the train...

and we waited...

and waited.  It finally came after more
than an hour standing in the sun.

Getting close and...

so excited...

Wow, here we are...

and people everywhere.

Our seats were pretty far up but it was okay.

Missionaries everywhere

Let's take a selfie.

Our mission's first family.

We were very proud of Elder Burrop
who threw out the first pitch.

Our own four elders in front of us.

Fun, fun, and more fun.

We took the train again going home and it was a fun experience.  I think about twenty five missionaries got on at the same time and we got a lot of stares and questions.  

Last time we went downtown we drove and paid a fortune to park, so we will for sure take the train if we go again.

We never knew a mission would be this much fun.  :)
