Greetings from the MTC!

Hello everyone!

I arrived at the MTC yesterday, and the day was such a whirlwind.  It was so hard to see my family cry, but I knew if I didn't pry myself away I would want to hop back in the car and just go home with them. I didn't know if I would even wake up today...but surprise!  I woke up today at 5:45! Crazy, huh?! All of the sisters in my room and I went to a yoga class at 6 in the morning, so I kind of died. Tomorrow is kickboxing though, so that will be super exciting! I miss you all so much! I keep wanting to pull my phone out and call my family and let them know that I am okay, but then I remember that I can't.

I saw my friend from high school, Sister (Aubrey) Armstrong, which was so fun to see a friendly face. I have also seen my friend from college, Sister (Savannah) Jones, a bunch. My companion, Sister VanOrman, is great!

I am so excited to be a missionary (it feels so crazy to have a missionary tag on). Yay!

Off I Go...

Thank you so much to everyone who came yesterday to hear me speak and who came to see me afterwards. Your love and support is so important to me! I love you all so much and I count myself lucky to have you all in my life!

Well, I leave for the MTC in just 2 DAYS! I will be there until the 19th of July, so in case there is anybody that would like to send me a letter (because snail mail is so much fun, right?) here is the address for letters and packages:

Sister Mary-Ashley Esplin
July 19 AR-LTR
2005 N 900 E Unit 117
Provo UT 84602

I hope that I can hear from you! Love you all so so much.

-Soon to be Sister Esplin :)
