Week One

My brother has left his sister in charge on keeping the blog up to date and he is sending me stuff to put on the  blog.

Week one has been a blast. Had multiple lessons with investigators here so i learn what to do when i am in Nashville when i am there. I have been to the gym multiple times and gained 6lbs. since June 13 (no idea where it is going but OK). We went walking around the Provo Temple as a District; took multiple pictures and had loads of fun.

On Tuesday, June 12, we went through the Provo temple as a District. What an experience. The chandelier in the Provo temple is amazingly beautiful. If it were me; between the chandeliers in the Provo or the Jordan River. I would have to pick the Jordan River one if i could have one in my house. 
The Elders in my District have convinced me to go to other temples. On my bucket list, i would like to go to the: 
       Rome, Italy (which will be dedicated in 2013)
       San Diego, California
       St. George, Utah
       Manti, Utah
       Logan, Utah
       Houston, Texas
The Houston, Texas and San Diego, California are the top two out of the list that i would like to go through.

Every Wednesday, new missionaries show up to the Missionary Training Center. So on Wednesday, June 13, my companion and i showed where the residency, classroom, cafeteria, and post offices are since they don't know. Elder Hancock from Manti, Utah is learning to speak Spanish and is going to Mexico near the Arizona/ New Mexico border on the Mexico side.

Having a blast here. I am sad to say that i am a third of the way done with my time here at the Missionary Training Center, but i have to look forward to what will happen next.

A missionary leaves his family
for two years so that the people he teaches
can be with their family forever.

It's Official

I am now a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints. Everybody (5 total) that is going to Nashville, Tennessee is from Utah. 
          Elder Bradley - Vernal
          Elder Haslam - Sandy (Bradley's companion; He knows our uncle)
          Elder Casey - Ogden
          Elder Piccolo – Orem
          And of course myself - Herriman
Come to find out, Piccolo in Italian means small/ short. (funny huh) I am meeting so many people that I know here from High School. It's like a class reunion; but in a weird sort of way. I will remain here at the MTC till around June 25-28. 
Thanks for having me in your thoughts and prayers.

                                          Elder Terre K. Short


June 6th came quicker than i hoped it would. we stopped by the Prove Temple before entering into the MTC.

 The Elder that took our picture here was on his way to the MTC as well he is going somewhere in Russia; wouldn't that have been funny if he was going to Nashville, Tennessee as well.

Ensign Peak Hike

 Interesting plaque I found directly south of the trail head across the street. It mentions Joel H. Johnson who wrote the lyrics to Hymn #5 High on a Mountain Top. Ensign Peak is the mountain it is referring to in the song. I had no idea until I saw this plaque.

Stitches of the top of Ensign Peak. The top one is looking south into the valley, while the bottom one is also looking to the west over the Great Salt Lake. You can see the airport, Antelope Island (which isn't an island due to how low the GSL is) and if you look at the far left of the image, you see downtown Salt Lake.
