I am really missing Dear Elder now, but its good to be able now to focus more!
The flight was good, but the jet lag - terrible lol. I’m still really feeling it, but I’m hoping it will pass here soon! My trainer, he is great! His name is Elder Stringham and he is from Utah . He has two transfers left so there is a good chance that I will send him home, but even though he is about to head home he is not trunkie at all! We are working hard, it is great! I think you would like him a lot! He is really nice and very laid back guy that just takes things as they come. I’m learning lots from him!
My mission president is great! He and his wife were very nice with us. When we got here they took us out to eat, went tracting with us and it was gorgeous everywhere we went! Some of the most beautiful architexture I’ve ever seen and I met a lot of great people! It was wonderful. I can’t really remember much of the first few days just because I was half asleep lol, but I’m beginning to acclimate now!
I think the Brubakers are French though I am not sure, they were serving in France when they were called to be Mission Pres so I know that they at least speak French! I love the country and people here and I KNOW that I will love it even more when I can communicate and understand things more fluidly lol, but I have to get going for now! Well I love you all and I will send a letter later today, hopefully filling you in a bit more -till then much love.
