(exerpts from letters sent May 25th and June 1st, 2013)
Hello!! It's the one and only Sister Blommaert here and I can't tell you how awesome it is to be here at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in beautiful Provo, Utah!! I want to let you all know that all is well in Zion, as this place is indeed a sacred, dedicated place of love, learning and growth - immense growth! On the down side, I only have 30 minutes computer time to read and send emails each week! Definitely not enough time for me to describe all that I am learning and experiencing at this wonderful place but I will do my best!

I LOVE my companion! Her name is Sister Amy Lanham from Layton, Utah and she is such a sweet, reverent ray of sunshine! She has a quiet disposition with a heart full of love and kindness. She inspires and uplifts me time and time again, and to be honest, I couldn't have asked for a better companion. We do everything together, not just because we have to, but again, because of our great love for each other, for the work, for the people we teach and especially for our Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ.

|MTC District Sisters: Sister Matangi, Sister Hansen, Sister Lanham, me, Sister Butler, Sister Stukie|
|MTC District Elders: Elder Tolman, Elder Rasher, Elder MacMichael, Elder Condie|
Thank you to Yara Nasif, Tanya White, Stephanie Smith, Mitchell Chalifoux and my wonderful family (thus far!) for your sweet letters of love and encouragement. They are pure gold!
Next time I post will be in the wonderful mission field of the Canada Calgary Mission! I can't wait! Love to you all and God bless!
Sister Blommaert :)
