Alright so this is pretty stressful because there is a little clock that is up at the top that is counting down from 30 mins so lets hope i say all that i want to say.
First, thanks for the few letters already. I'm not gonna lie, it is awesome to get mail :) So being on a mission is very hard. Harder than i thought it was gonna be. The first 4 days were the longest, hardest, and most overwhelming days of my life. Time went by so slow and i was just not ready for the missionary lifestyle. Getting up at 6:30am adds so much to your day ha. So the first days I was having a hard time adjusting but everyone was saying that it is normal and that once Monday comes, the days will speed up. And they were so right. I thought monday would never come and now it is Tuesday. It has been so cool seeing everyone i know up here. My companion is kinda sick of me running into so many people i know and stopping to talk to them. I've seen Elders: Hatch (he's gotten kinda chubby but don't tell him I said that haha), Stratford, Warr, Clement, McGuire, Almquist, Smith, Peacock, Hall, and Gooch. And also Sister Powell. Seeing these people who have been here for awhile I can really see a change. The MTC changes people, and for the better. It is so cool to witness this.
So the language is pretty crazy. We can't read the script yet so we have a romanized version (where they put it into letters we can understand but are still weird spelling) to help us learn words and soon translate it into script. I already know how to pray, bear my testimony, and introduce myself as Elder Johnson from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. So that is pretty impressive if i do say so myself. It is a miracle actually and i know that it is only through the Lord's help that I've learned so much. The spirit is really strong here and it is awesome! Oh ya and in class we can only speak in Khmae (pronounced Kah-my) if we have learned the word already. Its pretty tough but it teaches us so fast. I can't wait to get better!
So in just a week we have already gotten new ZL's, a new branch pres., and soon getting a new MTC pres. Its crazy. I really like the new ZL's. We get along really well and we play basketball in gym everyday together. Yes Dad, I only play basketball in my gym time.
