Last week in the MTC

Adam writes that he will be packing up early Tuesday (Sep 13) to get to the airport for the long trip to Taiwan.  He will arrive in Taiwan Wednesday evening to start his work "in the field".  We was given the chance to perform his cello solo at the Sunday Devotional in front of 3,000 missionaries at the MTC.  He played "Consider the Lilies" with his new accompanist, Sister Coon from Draper, UT.  To view a video of their dress rehearsal, go to:

The feature speaker at the Devotional was Chad Lewis, the football player (Philadelphia Eagles) who played for BYU and served a mission of the church.  Adam's Mandarin is getting pretty good.  The challenge will be understanding people speaking at normal speed and sometimes with accents and slangs.

He's had an amazing experience at the MTC and has grown spiritually and in maturity.  He is excited to start his work in the Taiwan Taichung Mission next week.

Adam wants to thank Yulia and her dad (who visited Provo all the way from Russia) for sending him a care package of pistachio nuts, brie, sourdough bread.
