One thing I would extremely encourage you to do is go to BYU-Idaho website and try and find Elder David Bednar's talk called "the Character of Christ". He gave this talk to the MTC a couple years ago and you can only watch it at the MTC (the BYU-I version is online and very similar. He just doesn't say a couple of things.) but it is the best talk I've ever heard. Read it, listen to it, and apply it, because that talk helped me more then anything. I've never felt the spirit so strongly in my entire life then when we watched it and we plan on watching it again this Sunday. (Every Sunday evening your district can choose a movie/talk to watch out of a small category, like Meet the Mormons, the Character of Christ, and other church movies). I've already given 3 blessings while I've been here and went to the temple today! Provo temple was cool but did not compare to the one in Bountiful!
