So this week went really really well. The language is getting a bit easier to learn and the Spirit is still strong.

Dad, you wanted to hear about the missionaries in my district so here goes:
Elder Christian Little, he's from Sandy and went to BYU for a semester before his mission
Elder Theodore Mulder who was working / going to UVU studying aviation science (he's really really smart, he's DL right now)
Elder Nathan Garrison, I think mom has been talking to his mom so you probably know a bit about him... He's from Boise Idaho and went to Boise State before his mission.
Elder Paul McPherson, hes the oldest elder in our district at 20. He went to high school in Thailand and has been studying at BYU-I.
Elder Jacob Klein, he's the only one straight out of high school... kinda... he graduated early then went a semester at LDS Business College. He just turned 18 and would be a senior right now if he didn't graduate early.
My teachers are great, their names are Brat (Brother) Jensen, Brat Smalley, and Siostre (Sister) Barth. They are all really good teachers and and good at explaining difficult concepts (like cases) to us. Speaking of which we learned our first case yesterday, its the nominative case that words normally are in the dictionary as, its used whenever a noun is the subject of a sentence. Basically you just leave nouns as you find them in the dictionary then case adjectives to match the nouns. Really fun stuff...

So I'm running out of time right now but I love you guys!
Keep sending dear elders (DearElder.com) and letters! I love them.
P.S. One more thing...we were told about the first Turkish elders who got transferred from Bulgarian to turkey (languages are not similar Bulgarian is Slavic, Turkish is something else entirely) they made a mission goal (between the 4 of them) to memorize 100 new words every day, which they did. They were all fluent by the time they went home a year later. Crazy, hopefully i can get that good at memorizing vocab.
