Just a note for packages, USPS doesn't give us any notices anymore if they drop off a package at our apartment’s management office, so if you send a package just let me know so I know when to check.
This past week was a bit hectic. Had to drive the visa waiters to the airport at 4 am. When we dropped them off there, we ran into Elder Murray's MTC companion. I got to drive the truck though, which was fun. I was a bit jealous they got to ride on a plane, I really, really miss flying.
Later that day I picked up my new companion, straight from the MTC, Elder Zeng from Chengdu, Sichuan, China. He's a funny guy. In Chengdu, people eat really spicy foods. He brought his own peppers to make his own "red oil" that's really, really spicy. He also brought a packet to make the spicy hot pot. We went to Subway and he asked for the most spicy sauce. He said it was sweet, not spicy. It's kind of fun seeing him transition to the US. He tried his first root beer float the other day and thought it was okay. It's great to have a testimony of someone who is really, really Chinese. I think it's going to help the work in this area a lot.
We spent 5 hours at the DMV on Saturday helping one of our investigators get his license. He's got a baptismal date in two weeks that we're really excited about.
For some reason this past week, we've been eating a lot a lot of Chinese food. It's really good and delicious, but too much! Elder Zeng lost 25 pounds in the MTC that he doesn't want back on, so we gotta stop all this food!
