"It's Kinda Like Kissing..."

Well, we were able to get another letter from Reagan today. It sounds like he's still loving the MTC life and his mission. He wants everyone to know that he can recieve emails at, but can only write emails to one family member and then print off the rest of his emails and write letters back. You can also write to him through using his mailing address and he will usually get them the next day. And that is really what he would love! He really wants letters!!!!

Anyways, Reagan loves his district and his companion, Elder Hoffman, is the DL. They all get along really great and you can tell that he has already made some amazing lifelong friends. One of the elders, Elder Callister, is learning the language very fast so Reagan and the other elders lovingly call him "The Professer".

There are currently 44 missionaries in the MTC that are going to Korea. The group that came in with Reagan was very small, only 11 of them. So that means that in 2 1/2 weeks, the 33 missionaries that were there before Reagan will all be leaving and they will be alone for a few days until the new wave of missionaries get there.

For those of you that really know Reagan, you will just shake your head and laugh at this. And the rest of you will just laugh. I'm just gonna type it word for word cause I won't be able to say it like him.
" The food here is actually pretty good. Everyone that says its nasty is lying. I've decided the food is like kissing, when it's good its REALLY good, and when it's bad it's still pretty good haha..."

Only Reagan!! His teachers are both students at BYU and he loves them both. "They know so much and teach it to us so well." Their classroom is on the 5th floor of the main teaching building so that means they have to walk up 5 flights of stairs going to and from class at least 3 times a day. One of the elders calculated that during the time that they are they are going to walk up approx. 27,000 stairs!!!

He's having a blast and has learned so much in just the little time that he has been there. We are so proud him and all that he accomplished so far!!! If you need any info for letters or whatnot, make sure to let us know!!

Today we received Reagsn first letter. He loves the MTC. "It's a big place but it's really easy to navigate" On friday he learned the Korean Alphabet. "I can now read and write in Korean. I don't know what any of it means yet but I can read it and speak what I'm reading. I can listen to someone say something in Korean and write it down. There is definately no better way to learn a language than with the Lord's help." His companion, Elder Hoffman is from Nashville, Tn. They get along really well. there six Elders in his District, 3 form SLC, 1 from Idaho, 1 from Georgia and his Companion from Tennessee. He asks that everyone use "" to send him letters. I just did and it's really easy and he'll get the letters the day after you send it. Here is his address at the MTC. Make sure you fill in his MTC mailbox#. His schedule is "crazy" and has his P-day on Tuesdays. He says "I'm doing just fine and I won't be coming home any time soon. Tell everybody I love them and I'll write as soon as I can."

Elder Reagan Jefferey Wing
2005 N. 900 E.
