When I wrote Hayes during his first week, I sent him one page full of questions and left space for him to answer the questions and send the paper back in a self-addressed stamped envelope hoping that would expedite the letter! :) A brilliant idea I stole from my very smart mother. hahahaha
Mom: What was your first day at the MTC like?
Elder Rollins: CRAZY! We got shown around real quick then taken to class and then to a welcoming meeting and never had time to look back!
Mom: Was it wat you expected, or not?
Elder Rollins: More or less. Yes, it was what I was expecting.
Mom: Who is your first companion?
Elder Rollins: Elder Bell
Mom: What is he like?
Elder Rollins: Gabe Dominguez! LOL (Gabe was one of Hayes's wrestling teammates in high school)
Mom: Where is he from?
Elder Rollins: UTAH
Mom: Where will he serve?
Elder Rollins: Independence! :)
Mom: Have you seen anyone you know at the MTC?
Elder Rollins: Preston, Alex & Tanner Field.
Hayes has trouble sleeping...
Mom: How did you sleep your first night?
Elder Rollins: Like a baby.
Mom: What are the BEST things about being at the MTC?
Elder Rollins: The Spirit is constantly there and the family bond we have formed.
