"I'm Alive!!!"

Wow... the M.t.c... What an a amazing place! The second you walk in here you instantly feel the spirit and it never leaves! I love it! But thats probably because im only here for 2 weeks. some Elders are here for 12 and they look like they are dying! They keep us sooooooo busy here with no time to ourselves. which in a way is a good thing i guess we have 16 hour days with 3 meals a day and they feed us very well... its all you can eat so im pretty much loving it here. ha its kinda what we look forward to here! ha sorry i couldnt email yesterday, they changed our p-day to Tuesday and its our only p-day so thats a bummer...but our travel plans are official, we leave on the 26th at 3:30 in the morning to New york. We have a layover in detriot and then its off to Syracuse! we are pretty worried about packing for the plane.. Because of all the fees but i think we'll be alright! we'll say a prayer haha. This first week in the MTC was pretty crazy, and very stressfull they put a lot on your plate, especially for 2 weekers. On thursday they wasted no time and interviewed My companion and i and made us Zone Leaders! so that gave us even more responsibility.. haha!
My companions name is Elder Adam, and i couldnt ask for a better companion! we are alot alike and we get along real well. he is super funny and we really push eachother. We are teaching 2 investigators, 1 an actor and another a real investigator and we teach really well together! i hope the mission pres. makes us companions at one point....
Everyone in our Zone is pretty much all gone they all went to Australia and indianapolis. But we get 2 weeks worth of missionaries tomorrow because they dont send in missionaries the week of thanks giving. So we have to show them around, make them comfortable and kinda freak them out a bit! our District gets along really well we go everywhere together! and get sick all together! we all came down with some weird cold... its been a big challenge. We also had a chance to go through the Provo temple and it was just straight up amazing! we all instantly felt better. 
but I have seen alot of old friends here! its great to see familiar faces! But to Tell you the truth, my comp. and i, i think are kind of getting some type of cabin fever... we are kinda going crazy! we just want to be in the field already. 
My testimony has grown so much, just being here for 1 week! we have so many spiritual experiences! its so great. I wish i could tell you more but i dont have much time, it took half the time typing in the emails haha and i still didnt get them all so, by all means forward it to who you seem fit!
I hope everything is going great back home! Feel free to fill me in! I would love to hear from you!

P.S. i would send pictures but the computers here wont let me yet, so be ready for a lot of pics next week!!

Love always, Elder Jepsen
