Dear Family,I made it through the first day at the MTC and I am allowed to write you tonight, but I won't be able to email until next Monday or maybe even later. It has been a really long day. But it's pretty fun. There are 6 Elders and 6 Sisters in my district and 2 of the Elders are actually going to England, but speaking Polish.
We are in the same zone as missionaries going to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, and Bulgaria. I met Lindsey Walch's MTC teacher. Brother Tribe is our teacher and he only speaks Polish! ** My companion's name is Elder Blom and he is from New York.
Anyway, I am doing great and having a fun time. I have been helping the other Elders with their Polish. I love you all.
Love, Starszy Allen
** (Drake knows Brother Tribe or Stewart Tribe -- one of Scott's mission companions from almost 30 years ago is Stew's dad and we've been friends with them over the years-- hopefully Drake will get a picture with him at some point.)
