Life at the MTC

From December 24th:
Alright, to start from the beginning, I received the "Greenie" package and all the letters.  The MTC is great and I have an awesome teacher and a wonderful district; we all get along very well.   We even have an Elder Straddling from Mesa, Arizona. Everyone one in my district is going to Nampa, Idaho.

My companion is from Boulder City, Nevada which is a city right outside of Las Vegas.  She is very friendly.

I am singing in the choir today and it will be broadcast and might be on BYU channel.

 We are all getting immunizations on January 2nd.  We already have an elder who has been isolated from everyone because he has influenza, yeah, not fun for him.

I don't need anything from home, but I will need to get different boots.  The weather here is freezing, but I am starting to adjust to it.

Well that's all I can think of for the moment.

Love you!

Sister Donner

From December 25th:

Merry Christmas!  We got an extra day to mail.  I know you won't see this till later but I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I also wanted to tell Dad "Happy Birthday" and sorry for not sending a card, it's been kind of hectic.  We are going to listen to an apostle today and have a lot of fun programs so it will be awesome.
I hope you all have a great day!

Love you so very much!

Idaho Nampa Mission...MTC here she comes!

Sister Nicolette Donner was picked up from the Arizona Tempe Mission on December 11th at 7:50 in the evening.  Prior to leaving she opened her mission papers and found that she will be serving in the Idaho Nampa Mission for the next 15 months.

She took her first plane ride along with several other elders from the Sky harbor Airport this morning.

This is a picture of Sister Donner at the SLC Airport on her way to the MTC.  Her cousin Chelsie was an angel and came to meet her at the SLC airport to make sure she had a smooth transition to the shuttle that would take her to the MTC.
(She also took the photo)
She will be at the MTC from December 18th to January 7th.

(We pray her new mission president will take pity on her and not require that she ride a bike.)

We are so excited for her!

Okay, so we had one investigator come to church Sunday, so that was great.  The new companion, which creates our threesome, is Sister Lamm.  She is awesome and very, very animated.
My favorite part about last week had to be biking with all three of us, it was funny.  Oh...and also eating a bit slice of cheesecake.

My least favorite part of last week was getting sick twice...YUCK!

My companions and I put up a Christmas tree last night and then talked.

I will be coming back from Yuma on Wednesday with President and Sister Toon after zone conference.  It's kind of hectic, but everything has been great!

I'll see you soon!

Love you!!!!!!!

Thanksgiving was good.  We had two meals and both were great!

My companion and I are doing awesome.  We throw things and tease one another all the time.

My favorite part of last week was scaring my zone leader, Elder Nelson, and my lease favorite part was waking up with a sore throat today.

I have literally been running around trying to see people.  I am in a trio now until Wednesday, so I have to wake up at 4 am to leave with a bunch of Elders.

Regarding my bike, we took off the back brakes and the back tire is bent, but no worries because I am in a car now until transfers, so yeah, that 's fun.

I am not sure when I will be released, so yeah; I think the mission office will let you know.

Well, I'll see you soon!

(We just received word that Nicki will be coming back to Tempe on the 11th and entering an MTC on the 18th, still no word where.)
