  1. I can't believe Colton thought the MTC was horrible! Maybe because he was in South Africa instead of Provo ... Tell Katee that the MTC is NOT horrible. It is hard, but it's also an amazing and spiritual place. She'll be learning a lot and she'll be humbled, but she will also look back on it with fondness. I'm glad to see Colton is receiving my letters!
