My companion is now the D.L. [District Leader] which is pretty cool. Our Dai-Senpai left, so in two weeks we will have been here the longest out of all the Japanese speakers. And we will still have 3 weeks left in the MTC.
I got to be a host missionary, which was fun! It was fun to help new people come into the MTC. What wasn't fun was finding out all of the people I helped would be leaving almost a month before I did. Sometimes I feel like the MTC is really long, but I couldn't be more grateful for it.

So I found my cousin Ryan Morrill! He came in about a week ago and I loved seeing him again. I found Gerrit Burgener yesterday, too. I didn't get a picture w/ him because he had just gotten there and I didn't want to bombard him or anything, but I did meet him and give him a hug. I have yet to see Elder Hunter.

One of my favorite people here is Elder Law. I'm including a picture. He's from China. He's probably one of my best friends here in the MTC. His companion Elder Lee is also from China, and he's also one of my best friends. I love their broken English, and they love to give hugs.

Also, my companion received some peppers in the mail. Like the really hot kind. I didn't eat one, because I actually care about my internals. But it was hilarious to watch other people eat them.
