Lots of mail and I love the food!

So, I hope you get this, I'm sending it in a weird way since I cannot for the life of me figure out how to start a new message...I guess not being on the computer all day has killed my brain. But anyways, today was my P-day, I'm so glad that we didn't have to do much today. We did go to the temple which was GREAT!! The dear elder letters have been a LIFESAVER!! I have gotten the most mail out of anyone in my district, please keep them coming!

So my companion is somewhat German, he only lived there for a year and then came here, he is funny! My room got some candy today since one of our district groups left today. It was hard saying goodbye because we were so close. We only knew them for a week but it felt like forever. The classes here aren't bad, you just sit there for like 7 hours a day. The food here is GREAT!! The Elders love to do chocolate milk challenges which the sisters HATE! One of the Elders drank 8 glasses in 40 secs.

I'm trying to think of things to write that I haven't told you about yet, but it's hard. Especially since it's REALLY loud in here and I can't think. So, I'm not homesick anymore like I was.  We either wake up at 6:05am or 6:30am. Today we woke up at 6:05am and had to go do service which was clean some of the chapels in the main building. I've been trying to take pictures of everything while I'm here, and it gives me something to do.

There were a lot of new missionaries to come in today. My room is on the fourth floor, which kinda sucks, but it's nice being away from everyone since the other floors are mostly full. On our side of the top floor we only had 3 rooms full of people, 4 in each one. Today we got two whole rooms full of new missionaries. It's strange thinking that just a week ago we were all dropped off. Time here is really strange, the days go by so slow and then so fast at the same time.  All the days blend into one.

I will fly out for Nebraska on Nov. 27, we need to be up and at the main building at 2:30AM. Our flight leaves at 6am and we fly to Minneapolis Minnesota. We then fly out to Omaha at 11:30am. I will call you either before 6am or when we are in Minnesota.

The food here is so good and the place is huge!! Gym has been pretty cool, it is a 3 story building and has a track and equipment. I usually run about a half mile since I'm out of shape and call it good!

My companion is the district leader so we both get to go pick up the mail, most of the mail is for me which I LOVE!!! It really makes my day!! My companion got a box today that he thought was going to be something really exciting, it was a box of popcorn, just popcorn. He was kinda bummed but we laughed about it!

I love you all, I know the Lord will watch over all of you. I hope everything is going well. I know that serving a mission will not only bless my life, but all of yours as well!

Love you all!!

Love, Elder Searle :D
