This week has been great. We have been doing a whole lot. I'm sorry about Taylor's finger (he broke it on Saturday night) but its not all that suprising. I have not met President Brown and haven't been called up in any meetings yet, thank goodness. I did however get to meet my new mission president. His name is President Batt. they are super fun and have quite a few stories. He has grown up and lived most of his live in Rigby, Idaho, and got his masters in mechanical engineering, and his mission was the indians in Minnesota area.
My companion's name is Elder Poulson. He is rather funny. Not out and out funny but he is so quiet and reserved that when he tells some of his stories in a completely common and unexciting way it is hilarious cause they are just ridiculous. He's from West Jordan, Utah, and likes to skate. My district is 7 guys, a threesome and two companionships. The 2 companionships are both going to New Mexico and the others are going to Raleigh, North Carolina. The other New Mexico guys are Elders Meng and Tucker. They are great, as is the rest of my district. We spend all of our time together as a district.
I have met lots of guys I know. A bunch from school who were here or got here the same day as I did, and I'm leaving before all of them! Haha. I did see Tyler Miller and some other missionaries going to Sendai as well. There are a few of those. Oh, super cool is I saw President Eyering today as I was coming back from the temple. Kinda cool. I didnt get to see grandma and grandpa cause I go early on Monday. I dont think I will be able to go. You should read Elder Bednar's Christmas MTC devotional. It is so good. We watched it last night. and I heard that since the first mission in the Phillipines opened that it has gone from 65 members to 650,000 members. Way cool and I thought Matt might like to hear that. All of us in my district are all really wishing we had mail. It is just so nice to get something every day or just every so often. We got here at just the right time cause we hit the Mission Presidents' Seminar, which really confuses us on schedule but is super cool cause we have most of the general authorities here all the time. Oh and I was kinda dumb and gave my self a nice little goose egg last night, super fun. That's pretty much all I have to say.
Ya"ateeh means ITS ALL GREAT in Navaho
