December 16, 2011

Everything here is going good. i'm still getting along with my companion and everything. It's funny, we both think very similarly, like yesterday, we were having a discussion in class about our purpose as missionaries and the doctine of Christ and things like that, and every time either of us was gonna say anything the other one said it first. I'm really grateful that I got a good companion to start off with. That was my biggest worry when I was heading out. I'm still getting along with most of my district too, there's only a few people that are starting to bug me, but oh well. I haven't met any apostles or anything yet, but this past Sunday the BYU men's choir came and sang for our devotional, which was really cool, and then Tuesday, the young women's president came and spoke. Apparently Tuesdays are the days when apostles and such come, so we'll see who comes this week. I think I'm adjusting well, we're always busy. There's hardly ever any time that we don't have something to do. The language is coming really well. Out of our entire district I'm one of the ones that knows it the best. I think it's because I took it in school, and because I learned it when I was little with the jennings, and because we live in Arizona. It's been cold, but not unbearably so. It snowed a little bit a few days ago, but none of it stuck, which is alright with me. If I get a chance, I'll try to get on again later and send you another email.
Le amo mucho.

January 10, 2011

Hola familia! I am doing great. My companion is really cool, in fact, my whole district is pretty cool. At least so far haha. My companion is Elder Zufelt, and he's from Winslow, AZ. If I could pick my companion out of the elders in my district, I would probably have chosen him. We have a lot of the same interests, and we seem to think along the same lines most of the time. My p-day is usually on Fridays, but this week my schedule is different since it's only a half week, so it's today instead. It was crazy when I first got here. Right away we had class, and the teachers only speak spanish to us except for things that are super important, but practically all the time, only spanish. They're really cool though, and very patient haha. Yesterday, I had to teach my first investigator, and all in spanish too. It was pretty difficult, but we got through it. He's not a real investigator, just a member who is pretending to be an investigator, but it doesn't matter. The schedule is so busy here, so it seems like I've been here way longer than I have. Thank you all for your letters. It's great hearing how you are all doing. Thanks for the package too. I just got it today, but apparently they had it at least yesterday if not the day before. Oh well. I feel like I'm learning a lot of spanish even though I knew a lot before. I'm learning a lot of new words and phrases and such. We try to speak in Spanish as much as possible, so that we can remember all the words we're learning. And we all learned how to pray in Spanish so now whenever we pray we try to do it as much in Spanish as possible. It's tough, but it's fun. My roommates are going to Peru, so in three weeks, they leave and go down to the MTC in Peru. One of them is my district leader. He's pretty cool. They're both from Utah. They are Elder Hulet, and Elder Driggs. Almost my entire district is from, Utah, except for me, my companion, a guy from Boise, Idaho, and a guy from Oahu. Well I think my laundry is done, so I better go. I love you all, and can't wait to hear back
