I wanted to give everyone some information on where Savannah is staying for the first two weeks of her mission. The picture above is the Missionary Training Center located in Auckland on the North island.
This training center serves missionaries staying in New Zealand, and going to Australia, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, etc. Most programs are two week programs for those that already are native speakers of those specific languages, and a six week program for those learning English.
Capacity for this MTC is 106 missionaries at a time, but the typical number of missionaries housed is around 43. Below are some additional pictures of what the MTC looks like:
At the MTC, missionaries keep busy with class work and meetings throughout the day. In addition to classroom training, they participate in weekly devotionals by Church leaders, motivational/instructional firesides, Temple attendance, weekly service projects, and personal preparation time to read, ponder and write weekly to family.
