Today Elder Simonson entered the MTC in Provo. We arrived about 12:30 and checked his baggage in. Two big suitcases for two big years. We were greeted by tons of volunteers and then led to the chapel where a member of the MTC Presidency greeted us and welcomed all the new missionaries. The President and his wife both spoke to the Elders (& Sisters) and then we watched "Called to Serve" after which we were to say our quick good-byes and go our seperate ways. We left him there, smiling and excited...he was about the first one out the door! We will give you more updates and post his letters here for you all.
