Oh! I forgot to tell you that the 4th of July celebration was awesome! We went into the gym around 7:30 and were able to listen to patriotic musical numbers and a devotional speaker who talked about freedom and how Christ (like the American flag) is our symbol of freedom. It was a different perspective and I am glad I was able to hear it.
Then President Roach (second counselor in the MTC presidency) announced that we would be watching 17 Miracles as a campus. I've that movie so many times at home, but it never exactly hit me what our ancestors went through to help us have the Gospel. It was a very touching experience.
Then, we were allowed to break curfew to go watch the BYU stadium of fire fireworks display from the parking lot. One of the Elders I sat next to in the gym told me that nights like those never happen at the MTC. I guess I just got lucky!
Love you lots!
