Day one is over. It was a little hectic, but I didn't get lost too much. At least, I don't think I did... Did I? Uh... right.
My companion is Elder Miller. He was called to the Paraguay Asunción mission also. But that isn't the really neat/weird part. He is from Joseph City. [note: Joseph City is about 15 miles from my home.] We haven't been together for a full day yet, but I think that we'll work well together.
Other news of questionable value: I forgot soap and shampoo in the van. Oops. I'll have to stop by the book store and pick some up. An interesting note about the bookstore (well, interesting to me): it sells a lot more than books, so it's not very aptly named.
The elders in my room are pretty cool so far. Four of us, including myself and Elder Miller, are off to the Paraguay Asunción mission. The other two elders are going to the New York Rochester mission, speaking Spanish.
This morning was kinda funny. Each one of use has an alarm clock, and none of them were set for the same time. It sure helped me to get up, even though I wasn't able to sleep until about midnight or so. I hope that I'll be able to overcome this little problem of mine. If not, I'm going to be very tired. I feel okay right now, but I've only been up for about an hour.
The food was pretty good, and there was plenty of it. I wasn't able to finish it all, though I came close.
Elders Thomas and Pribyl are reading the Bible right now. I'm quite impressed by them. They discuss the chapters between them. I never even thought about doing that.
Well, I don't think I've got any more stuffs to talk about. I'd say I done pretty good for only having a couple of hours to write about.
