New Area - New Experiences

Well my first week has gone by just fine. My companion Elder Toutai (not Toetai) is a hard worker and knows how to be obedient. So we are getting along just fine and having a lot of fun working really hard. We have quickly learned that you don’t have to know the language to have the spirit as a witness to testify of the truthfulness of the gospel. But we are still studying hard trying our best. We are the story of the mission right now though. The assistants to the president call us a lot to see how we are doing. But the Lord is blessing us a lot in our efforts.

My new house is a little different in some ways. My last house had a boiler but this one doesn’t. It’s ok though. This town is called Aguascalientes (agua for water and caliente for hot) because the water is naturally hot in some places. I don’t know why so don’t ask me. But my last house wasn’t in one of those places but this one is. But there is one problem. We don’t have enough money to pay the water bill. So the water that we have is cold. It’s ok though. The rest of the day is going to be hot so I try to enjoy it. Our house is a lot quieter at night as well.

Well for the package I do still need packing tape. And my memorycard. Maybe some CDs that are consistent with my calling. Like Motab. If you can find a pocket translator that would be cool. But anything you feel like I would need, go ahead and send it. Or also an electric razor. I’m getting some pretty bad razor burn marks.

My new area has a lot more trees and a lot of high steep hills so I love it here. But for some reason nobody can understand me here.

Well that’s all for now. Love ya.

Glad he has a hard-working comp.

That bus stop was just crazy. I think we are not grateful for all the things we take for granted here in the states.
