27 July 2015

Hmm, so much has happened this past week that I don't really know where to start...

When I was picked up from the airport by President & Sister Cusick and their AP's, I was still kinda in shock that the whole thing was happening, lol.  They took us to their house where we practiced first impressions with Bishop, Ward Mission Leader and Ward Council.  They also fed us dinner.  After they drove us to a hotel, there were 17 of us, so they couldn't fit us all in the mission home.  That morning the AP's woke us up at 5:30 am and we went running/workout just doing different things.  Dang.  It was so stinking humid....Even that early...I was drenched like half-way through.  After that they let us get ready and took us to the church where we had a little more training, just all really general stuff.  At 2 pm we went into the chapel where all the trainers and all the missionaries who were being transferred that week were!

My companions are Elder Lloyd and Elder Haslem!  We are in a trio!  He ws the old AP, and was released so he could train.  They take training super seriously.  Anyways he's great.  He leaves in 6 weeks, which is why we're in a trio.  Elder Haslem is quiet, super and chill, and can cook!

We are on some diet, i don't know why.  But it's breakfast - eggs, bagels and sometimes chicken.  Lunch and dinner is always chicken and rice or talapia and rice, everything with vegetables.

Every morning is workout as part of the schedule.

We had to whitewash the area, so we didn't have must to go off of when we first got here.  We've just been tracting every waking hour!  This week we taught 14 lessons and got 9 new investigators!  It's so awesome sharing the gospel 24/7!

Got to meet the ward on Sunday!  They are so awesome at missionary work, it's unbelievable.  It really reminds me of the ward back at home.

Love you!
