I'm doing very well here at the MTC. The food is tolerable and my companion is a great Elder. Those are the two main priorities anyway. :)
I'm learning Korean at a rapid pace and I love it (I'm able to read it and make short statements). It's very challenging but will be rewarding when I'm able to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to my Korean brothers and sisters in their native tongue. I can see truth in the old missionary joke: English speaking missionaries return as masters of the doctrine. Spanish speaking missionaries return as masters of the doctrine. Asian speaking missionaries return....................................just humbled. :)
I'm racing against the clock here so I'll have to close. Let me just say that I love getting letters from friends and family. It's hard to communicate via email since I have limited time, but DearElder.com has an amazing free service to send letters to the MTC.
I'm excited to be serving the Lord and I wish you all well. I hope to hear from you as I share with you some of my adventures over the next few years.
With love, Elder Bocchino
