Third Letter Home 10 September 2011

Hey, I leave the MTC Monday the 12th at 5:00am. Since I don't get a P-day, I'm emailing you today (Saturday). How are things going? Are you getting my Emails? You should have gotten two by now. The whole family should be able to see these, right? I got short Emails from Mom and Dad, so thank you for those. Feel free to Email me back, I would like to hear from you. I don't have a ton of time, but I would like to hear from everyone.
The MTC is awesome, but I am so stoked to leave, and go to Tacoma! I'm a little nervous, but I know that if I do all that I'm supposed to and put my trust in the Lord, I will be successful. Our lessons have gone well, we ended on a positive note with all our investigators, and we have a "baptism" scheduled for this Monday. I'm not sure if I've already told you, but Elder Heiner and I have been teaching a pretend investigator named Chicho. He is from Naploli. We taught him about the Book of Mormon, invited him to read it, and pray if it was true. We taught him all the lessons, and invited him to be baptised. He accepted, and he threw his bottle of wine in the trash (ha-ha). Its been fun, and even though it was all pretend teaching, I have felt the Spirit.
Our group is getting ready to leave. Time has flown by for me, and I feel like my time in the MTC has been really beneficial. I'll talk to you later, and please let me know if you are getting my email okay.
Elder Thornton
P.S. Can you send my jump rope to me in Tacoma? Can you post my new address on face book? It is:
Washington Tacoma Mission
4007 Bridgeport way W STE D
University Place WA 98466-4330
... Thanks.
