I'm in Heaven!!!!! Dalton, Georgia!!! My companion's name is Elder Rayon. He's from Veracruz, Mexico and the only other native missionary in the mission. This is his last transfer, so I'll kill him. :) Of the two native missionaries in the mission, one is my son and I'm killing the other one haha. :) In Spanish Ray is pronounced rey which means king. We call ourselves los dos reyes, or the two kings since both of our names start with Ray. He's an amazing missionary. OUR APARTMENT HAS A DISHWASHER!!!! This area has a lot of Hispanics from all over the place. It's a wonderful opportunity to speak Spanish almost all day everyday. I love it!
Sounds like things have been going well back on the homefront. Flash being silly and Kimmee stepping on deadly reptiles...what else is new. >:) haha
Anyway, no requests for the package this time...oh! More tuna thingies. Those were rockin'! And peanut butter crackers. It's so hard to get peanut butter stuff around here you know.... haha, just kidding. It's like I live in Mexico, but still have peanut butter. :) I'll actually write a letter this week. I have a little bit more time now that I'm junior companion again and don't have to worry about nightly phone calls and stuff.
Oh!!! Guess what my companion and I bought this morning?!? A tongue!!!! A hugenormous 5 lb cow tongue. We boiled it and made it into tacos. It's actually really really really good. It's just like steak, but more tender. The only bad part is that it takes 6 hours to boil. It's solid meat--there's no fat, bones, veins, nothing--just meat. Once you get over the fact that it's a tongue, it's really quite tasty.
Love you all,
