Cant believe we are back to Tuesday and im writing again. Here in the MTC time is quite weird and different, the days feel like weeks but the weeks fell like days! Looking back I cant believe I have been here 2 weeks! Its a funny thing because the Russians have been here 8 weeks and they leave the same day we do! I should not complain about getting out to Germany! We sure did luck out on having our time be cut down! We had some new Russians actually come in this last Wednesday and I knew of two coming in, Elder Nate Back and Elder Jakob Garlick. I have been looking for them all week and finally on Sunday I saw them and they were companions! How crazy, that could have been Elder Allan and I!
Oh but I just love new missionaries coming in! Wednesday are the greatest things ever, highlight to my week! It gets me so excited to see just a rush of missionaries come in! We have only had one Wednesday since we last communicated but it was just the best day ever and tomorrow it will be just as good! Elder Jones will be coming in and that will be a blast! Its also nice to know that we are not the youngest missionaries now. We almost got to be host missionaries actually on Wednesday because they needed more! But we went back to finish up planning a lesson, maybe this week!
The MTC is quite the happening place right now! Im sure that just a few months ago it was different! We have changed up our schedule just a tad because of it! We get up at 6 o'clock for showers because if you get up right at 630 you will be in a line for a good little while and we have to be in class by 7 so we have no time to waste! Its not too bad tho, I like getting up early! Another thing is the laundry, man oh man! That room is just crawling with people! So today we thought we would be all smart and go at 6 in the morning...well I guess everyone else had that same idea because it was just as busy! We eventually did do it tho, no worries! Lastly, the lunch room is a mess, literally! Okay not really but the lines are as far as the eye can see! Once I get my tray of food I feel like im driving a car because its just a traffic jam in there and if someone stops in front of you, you have to stop just as quickly or you'll make a mess! Luckily that has not happened yet. Its hard to find a seat but we try and eat as a district and that has been fun to do and we are starting to really come together!
The German is coming along real well! I can understand someone talking really well but its just the responding that gets me! We've had quite a bit of lessons and the one last night I felt really compfident with and I was involved in it! Its great to have a companion that knows German pretty well so I can ask him if I need help in the lesson or classroom! We have Devotionals every Tuesday and Sunday and that is another thing that is always jammed! Its in a big gym that we have and they have seats that come out and it is always filled to the rim!
The Misson life is going good I'd have to say tho! Im learning so much everyday about the Gospel, German and being a missionary! I cant wait to get out to Germany and serve the people the Lord has instore for me! Its cool to think the Lord has prepared both them and I so that one day we can meet! Cant wait to love those great people!
Love you all so much,
Elder Jason Jerman
