It has been such a crazy last few days! I do not even know where to begin. I got your letter and I have a letter on its way to you right now as well. Ummm, Friday is my Prep day so that is when I can reply. I miss you guys so much! My thoughts are super scattered right now if you cannot tell so Ill start at the beginning.
After being dropped off I was immediately sent to collect all my books where I then traveled to my dorms where I will be staying (Ill send pictures next week) then sent off to class. Yup, the very first five minutes and I was in class learning the language! It has been super rough but already I can understand a conversation (but I cant really reply yet) A few of the words I know are like oo= yes and indi=no. Pagpangmauyo=prayer bulig=help kita=us and honda=ready. I know a lot more but I do not have time to share it. I leave the MTC on Aug 7 so that will be fun. I also know when I come home. drumroll! June 16 2016 is what I have been told so far! So yay!
How is the family doing? Are you all getting around alright? I would think so!
Well, I dont know how much longer I am going to be able to go so just to wrap up I want to say I love you all and God loves you all as well. Thank you so much for the letter! I now see why elders like getting mail so much. Please keep sending them please! Also, if you can let all the rest of the family and and my friends know about Dear Elder! Its going to be super hard these next 5 weeks trying to learn as much as possible and that is the only relaxing I can get. As you probably know I cannot reply to dear Elder mail until P Day but I can still read them everyday. Let everyone know that please! I also forgot to get a list of emails from people so if they can email me that would be great so that I can write them as well. (Dont worry!! Ill write you first!) Thanks again! I love you!
