Lindsay was called to the Cape Verde Praia mission, which she did not know how to pronounce. After a long five month wait, she reported to the Provo MTC on May 17, 2013.
She said goodbye to her brothers in the wee hours of the morning before her flight took off.
She missed her first flight out of Philadelphia and was unable to call to let us know because shehad no phone! She was able to get another flight and arrived in Utah.
She stayed with Uncle Aaron and Aunt Stephanie over night and they drove her to the MTC the next day.
Her MTC companion, Sister Webb.
…and the other sisters in her district.
And the Elders too!
She had this to say about her district:
Our days here are pretty similar but were a goofy bunch so we keep ourselves pretty entertained. My district is like my second family. We do everything together.
She does a lot of studying, both learning Portuguese and how to be a missionary!
She shared this anecdote about role playing as a missionary.
the other day were were teaching investigators and two of the elders were in the room teachers. Now just some background our investigators are actually our teachers who pretend to be an investigator they had on their missions. So were all waiting outside the room and we just hear a lot of laughter and they came out of the room and explained the following. They were teaching about prayer and asked the investigator to pray. When the investigator said “sure can I pray my way?” they elders were like sure! why not! so the investigator closes is eyes, raised his hands in the air, starts yelling random noises and puts his hands on their forheads while yelling these weird sounds and shaking their forheads. Needless to say our 22 year old teacher couldnt keep a straight face while doing his prayer. Moral of the story, teach your investigators to pray before they offer the prayer.
