So the first 3 days were rough. I really wanted to come home, but fortunately I didn't. Elder Rawle, one of the Elder's in my room, made the decision to go home after a week. I was actually really sad that he did that because we used to stay up late and talk about Disneyland. The language is kinda hard. Harder then I thought it would be. But I am slowly learning phrases like O a mai oe? (how are you?) and other fun stuff. My P-Days are on Thursday and we get to go to the Temple every P-Day. My companions names are Elder Pulido and Elder Matua. I was put in a trio because Elder Rawle unfortunately went home. The MTC food is pretty good most of the time. This week Elder Pulido and Elder Matua both got sick, it's a miracle that I didn't get sick. I have given two blessings to two missionaries so far and as of right now they have recovered from their sickness, that just proves that priesthood power works! Boo yah. This coming Tuesday we are having our devotional in the Marriott Center! This is the first time for me so I am way excited! The MTC is great and all but I am so excited to get to New Zealand! This week I sprained my ankle... I rolled it pretty good. It immediately started swelling and is now starting to bruise but its noting too bad! Every now and then I get a little bit home sick but it's only for short periods of time. When it comes to companions you just gotta have patience or you are going to end up punching a wall and breaking your fist. Speaking of that... Elder Tapusoa (our zone leader) ended punching a wall the other day and he cut his fist open. Lesson learned, don't punch walls." Well I am headin' out for the week so God be with you till we meet again
