Wednesday- Me and about 30 other elders and sisters all landed in the Manchester airport after 15 hours of flying, where we were picked up by a huge bus and a lot of British Elders. It was cool to be able to go through the Salt Lake City and Orlando Airports with all of these guys, and I became friends with a lot of them so quickly. As soon as we arrived here, we were assigned our rooms, companions, and our District. Our District's room has five other guys in it including me and it's pretty small! We then were assigned our companions. My companion's name is Elder Kroes (sounds like "Cruise," sort of) who is from Germany! There is soooo much I could talk about him because I've gotten to know him a LOT over this first week, but I'll try and simplify it. Elder Kroes speaks pretty well in English and is a really intelligent guy. He likes to read and write a lot and isn't a huge fan of the outdoors and sports, aka soccer here. He knows so much about the gospel and can tell you any scripture you want to know off the top of his head. We're pretty much opposite in many ways, but he is a great guy. I love him and I'm going to keep trying my best to get closer to him! Next, we were introduced to our District ( which the guys in my room are, and there are some sisters). My district is the Ammon District and I was called to serve as our District Leader!! I could talk about every single person in my district for hours already, but I'll just write a little bit about each of them.
I love you all so much and please send me letters and emails this week. i would really love some pictures from all of you mailed or emailed to me! It's fun to talk about our families and friends with each other, so please do that :). I love you all and I'll write to you again real soon! Pray for the missionaries. We're working really hard here!
