I am Katarina's mom, Tiina Watts. I will be posting some of Katarina's letters and other information on her blog each week.

Katarina is anxious to have mail, even  though she has only been in the MTC one day. You can email her at Don't email anything too long, since she has a limited time to read and respond to emails. Even better, you can send her a letter (ask your mom if you don't know what that is) to the Missionary Training Center at this address:

Sister Katarina Watts
2007 N. 900 E. Unit 67
Provo, UT 84602

 Right after getting set apart as a missionary.
 Taking pictures in front of the Provo temple before going into the MTC.

Here are some excerpts from her first email home. For those who don't know the Mormon Missionary lingo, P-day is short for Preparation Day. Missionaries get one P-day a week to do laundry, go shopping, sightseeing and to read and write emails.


I have like 5 minutes to write a message, so....

We don't get P-day this week, so sorry.  I like my companion! Sestra Washburn is great. I'm already seeing God's hand in my time here. I'm so grateful for that. Sooooo grateful. Croatian is awesome! The teacher writes the Serbian lettering right underneath, too. So cool. And Bosnian, I found out, is like also the exact same language, so I'm technically learning ALL THREE. How neat is that. 

Don't remember dad's email. Sorry dad. Post on my FB that people have to email me FIRST because I have zero addresses. 

So far me and my comp have been late to like every meal. We get so caught up in study and whatnot. Also, we woke up late on accident. Only one of us set an alarm, and it didn't go off. Haha. Oh well. I'm in a room of four of us. The other two girls are really great, too. We have a good time. Send me stuff! I've seen a few of my friends that are teachers and stuff here, and that is really awesome. It's how I know all of this is real. Because it still feels like EFY sort of thing.

Okay, that's all the time I got!

K love you bye!
