I spend the rest of the day with Russell and his family. I sleep in one of my missionary's beds and I get to meet my missionary's parents. I am treated like royalty it seems--going to the restaurant atop the Joseph Smith building. I take pictures, but it is all too much for my simple brain.

I looked at my missionary and began to cry. I felt so small and insignificant as Russell left me in that large meeting room with tears in his eyes. He seemed so happy that I, his “Golden Contact,” decided to serve the Lord as a missionary.
I was extremely intimidated by my surrounds, but there was no reason for me to fear. I could not have been in more error about my fear of hazing. As I walked the halls to receive the items for my stay at the MTC, I felt a spirit of good will, but still felt apprehensive. With an orange dork dot attached to my lapel, I received much positive attention. I was astonished by the help I received just with carrying my belongings to my boarding.
I needed to overcome some several other fears, so, I was placed in a situation that I feared the most, leadership. I was called as the district leader.
