Week One - First day at the MTC

Andrew entered the Provo MTC (Missionary Training Center) on May 13, 2015. His mailing address (until May 26th) is:

Elder Andrew Nicholas Georg Lovgren
California Irvine Mission
Provo Missionary Training Center
2005 N 900 E
Provo, UT 84604

After his time at the MTC he will serve his mission in California until 2017. It's a fairly new mission - created in 2013. There are beautiful beaches there and I'm sure he'll enjoy the scenic views from a distance (not up close as missionaries aren't allowed on the sand or in the water.) The Newport Beach Temple is in his mission, and missionaries get to attend it at the time of transfers. (Interesting fact learned from a video on YouTube: the temple is light pink instead of white because surrounding home owners complained about having a big white building built in their neighborhood, so the church changed the building materials to light pink.
