This is it. I'm off to the MTC! I can't express how excited I am. How terrified I am. How grateful I am. I'm embarking on the journey of a lifetime!
This is going to be hard, the hardest thing I've ever done. But as I like to say, I'm sure it will "hurt so good." I know I will learn so much, grow so much, and have amazing experiences. I can't wait to see what the future holds.
I'm a missionary now!
Note from Rachel's mom: I just logged in to her blogger account and saw this draft. I don't know if she intended to publish it or not, but I figure why not. She's been in the MTC almost a week now, and is doing great!
