There is much good even among the growing hard stuff so I'll share:
First to answer your questions.... I eat a lot of fried chicken, bacon, and I even found those yogurt bags dad told me about. That's about it, and the usual rice and beans.
The ward mission leader here is awesome. He can barely walk because his right leg is so swollen, but he walks like ten miles to the temple every Wednesday. When he isn't in the temple he is with us... He's honestly my hero!! His whole family is inactive but I have never met a man more dedicated than him.

The other funny story in Bogota---its super hard to contact people so me and my zone leader were on divisions one day, and we made a bunch of jello and set up a table and then just gave out jello to try and contact. it actually worked a ton better. I'll send you pictures of that too!
Just got moved this week. 6 hour bus ride to Neiva. New comp from Las Vegas. Smaller town, very hot. Like 100 temps everyday. I'll share more about this next week!

This week I had a couple of spiritual experiences, but one thing was a talk by President Hinckley that I listened to. He said if you go on a mission "I cannot promise you fun, but I can promise you you will re evaluate your priorities in life." How true that is. I look back on how much I have grown in the mission, its incredible and its only been 8 months. I haven't written a hundreth part of the things I have gone through here, but someday I will be able to share everything.
I love you lots and cant thank you enough for your prayers. Thank you for all you do!!
And can you give a special thanks to the Bishop for me. President Erying always talks of inspired priesthood leaders, and he was mine. Let him know that his sacrifices for the priests in little old Brigham city aren't in vain.
Keep me in your prayers and I'll keep you in mine!
