Nicole's First Day (SP)

Dear Family!
     HOLY beans.  First day.  Check.  When they say your immersed in the work your first day, they're not kidding.  We're led away by a host to our rooms which, first miracle of the day, was Christie Bunnell! I like started tearing up when I saw her, not sure why... I think a tsunami of emotions and one familiar face made my whole world feel peaceful.
     We went straight to our trainers who spoke ZERO English.  But we're speaking our language 100% or at least what we know at ALL times.  It's super fun!  Yes yes there's SO much to take in, but letting myself get overwhelmed isn't the best way to cope.  So I just keep smiling and make it a game :).  I  LOVE the MTC.
     My first companion!!  She's from FINLAND, k and I'm already picking up her accent.  Her name is Sister Kervina (care-veena) and is a GEM.  Seriously.  Instant best friends?  Ya, they happen.  I get her for 6 whole weeks! Yeah!! :D  Laughing and playing the speak the Deutch we DON'T know.
     I'll write more about the sisters in my room, some from Scotland, another from Finland, Utah, Utah... I think ... haha a lot to remember.  All the accents rock :).
     2nd miracle: saw sister Rachel Lieshman form UVCC.  3rd miracle: Brought an extra face scrub totally last minute without thinking too much about it and turns out I left my first one at home.  heavenly Father is watching out for me.  Oh, 4th miracle.  My little closet was LOADED with hangers and no one else's were.  So I gave some extras out, but had enough to hand up some things :).
     I love you all SO much.  They've got good multi-tasking tactics here.  Work so hard that you don't think about home.  Ha ask me in a week... Anyway :).  Talk to ya'll soon!

- My shoes are AWESOME.  Zero problems :) :) :).
-There are so many sisters that are foreign it's crazy!  I'm learning a Scottish and Finnish accent ;).

Oh P.S!  I was made Sister Training leader yesterday (June 13)!  I'm so humbled and blessed!  Pray for my sisters!
