Hey Guys, Hope all is well
Right after you dropped me off i went through a line and got all my crap then that elder took me to my room and then to my classroom to meet my companion, Elder Galuvao, He is an awesome guy and we have so much in common it is crazy, He is from Anaheim California and he is Somoan, i learned the first day how many somoan's there are here when he went missing lol He has a strong testimony and i can feel it. We went to class and was right into learning, We learned more the first day than all four years of high school, go to the first page in pmg and go look at our purpose and you can know what we have been doing and learning since then.
The spirit is so strong here, we had mission conferance where the mtc pres. spoke and it was really good, then the christmas devotional, it is really awesome to be with so many missionaries in one place. We live in 3m on the fourth floor so i get to hike some stairs every day. Mattresses are little and not very comfy but the elders next door who are in my district will tell you there names later had an extra mattress and i kinda sorta stole it with there permission. But last night was good with those two mattresses, we will see today if i have to put it back haha but last night i slept better cause it wasn't so hard.
My day consists of teaching, learning, teaching, teaching, personal study in between. You are so busy here it is amazing. I haven't had time to think about anyone so i have not gotten homesick too bad, but i do miss al you guys, Those Dear Elder Letters are the way to go, tell everyone about it because it gives me comfort to get mail and to read it before i go to bed. Mail is the best and i love you guy's for writing me and tell matt and maryann thanks for the candy, journal, and oil. was good to get some of that. Food is excellent here tho, not as good as your cooking tho momma
The store here has excellent stuff i bought two c-d's that i am going to send home, it is just like deseret book but i get everything 40% off so it is nice. I want them on myipod tho if you could wait to send that.
I want pictures something terrible so if you can send me pics of you guy's and that one of bre that i talked to you about mom, passsed that just letters every day would make me not feel homesick. Let everyone know that i can get mail and be super happy. also if you could find me those tie tacks i would appriciate it cause i really want that one.
The Elders in my room are my comp Galuvao, me, Elder's Lott, and Morris (DL) all of us are going to DC, Sisters are Schank, Brown, and Cox going to New York, other Three Elders are Weidner, Zollinger(marine he is big lol), and Anderson going to San Diego
Tell you the Elders in my zone next week if i get there names down buy my comp sister is in our zone and branch and they came on the same day. Everyone here says that is a first so that is pretty cool
I will try and send a pic next time too but i don't have time and i had some tech problems so i lost about 15 minutes trying to get it back up so next one may be longer too but i am trying to be as obidient or however you spell it, as i can
I am just trying to take your advice dad and Start to lose myself in the work, remembered that one from the prophet as well and it has been working...Before i didn't think it was going to be this fun, but teaching people is soo much fun, exept this one guy but i might write ya at home.
Love you all so much and miss you
