The MTC experience is best characterized by what I call the rule of 12: 12 hours a day in a 12x12x12 room with 12 other guys.

I absolutely loved my experience in the MTC back in November 2008 to early January 2009! It was difficult to not be with family during Thanksgiving and Christmas (not even phone calls were allowed), but it really helped me develop spiritually and acquire life skills that have really improved the quality of my life. The announcement of the MTC in Mexico is exciting and really neat to see all of the efforts going on to successfully train, feed, provide shelter for, etc. for so many people every day. Great article!

I never went to the MTC. It was the mission home in SLC. Anyone remember the old rainbow discussions? I have a terrible memory and those discussions were a major challenge for me.


I know this isn’t what I should be thinking about as I watch this, but it’s remarkable how wrong the Book of Mormon musical gets the degree to which missionaries are prepared to serve before they enter into the field. Caricatures such as the ones that Trey Parker and Matt Stone created and have made so much profit from do not exist in real life, and the reason why they don’t is because of places like this.
