On May 22, 2013 Elder Josh Hinkle entered the MTC in Provo, Utah. We arrived early and missed the major traffic jam that we expected. It worked out great! Josh could't stop smiling as his bags were shuffled away, and mom couldn't stop crying.
His first letter from MTC came on that friday! A great surprise to hear from him so soon. Although he had been sick and feeling miserable, he was positive and happy to be there. His MTC companion was Elder Briggs and Josh was impressed with how smart he was.
While in the MTC, Josh attended the Provo temple and had a couple of great devotionals. He really enjoyed the role playing and teaching that they got to do, and said he would have liked to stay a little longer. But after 10 fast and very busy days, Josh, along with 30 other missionaries, was ready to get to work! Baltimore, HERE THEY COME!
