First Companion and Learning So Much!

Hello Everyone!

The past 4 days have been so crazy and I have learned so much! The companion (Elder Hale) that I have in the MTC is awesome.  He's really close to the spirit and we taught our first lesson last night to Jeff (which was one of teacher's investigators that he taught). It was awesome and we could feel the spirit so strong! They aren't kidding when they say they want us to hit the ground running. Also my companion and I have been made zone leaders in training, so Sunday we will get more training on that. Sad thing we found out yesterday is that the temple is closed and next Sunday is general conference so we wont be able to attend the temple here. Although it gives my companion and I more time to prep for our lessons. We teach Jeff again tonight then next week we have TRC's investigators. They are actual investigators that we will be teaching. What I have learned is to focus on the people; if I find out their needs, really love them, and by doing that the Lord will guide you to know what to teach. Love you guys and cant wait to here from you.

Report to the MTC (Mission Training Center)

Spencer Pearson was set apart as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Monday, September 21, 2015. The next morning Elder Pearson said goodbye to his family at the Phoenix, Sky Harbor airport and flew to Salt Lake City, Utah. He received permission to fly up a day earlier to spend time with family before he reported to the Mission Training Center. On Wednesday, September 23, after having lunch with his Aunt Peggy, Aunt Pam and Uncle Dave, Elder Pearson was dropped off at the Provo MTC. He is so thankful for all the family, ward members, leaders and friends who have supported him to get to this point in his life journey. 

The last hug is a Group Hug... until we meet again.

Love you too Elder Pearson!

Having to say a quick goodbye at the MTC. The first of many
