hello everyone! i am so glad to hear from you! this week has definitely been hard. the first couple of days i couldnt keep my eyes open, and i was constantly sleeping during class. it was a struggle, but everything was fine after the second day about. my companion is a really cool guy and he will be such an awesome missionary. hopefully we will be companions again later on. conference weekend was good! we watched the first two sessions on saturday, and then priesthood and the other two on sunday. it was an odd feeling watching the sessions at night for one thing, but also, i am in africa which was weird, but on top of that, we had fast and testimony meeting.. haha we did a lot of sitting around in a dark room being tempted to fall asleep. which i may have fallen to a couple of times... lol but i blame it on the jet lag, because what i did hear i loved! after conference the week seemed to fly by. i am really starting to adjust to the heat and schedule. we went to the temple today, and it was so beautiful!! the weather was perfect and the grounds are amazing. i felt so much peace and comfort there. i needed that temple trip badly. thanks for cleaning up all my stuff. im sorry i left everything all over the place. haha thats so funny you found that stuff in my bag, i didnt even know it was there. dad that is so cool that guy wants you on your talkshow! you will have to record it so i can listen to it when i get home. sorry i dont really have that much to talk about, but i will have much more next week seeing that i will be out in the field!
love you and miss you so much
love elder eldredge
p.s. sorry i didnt really take many pics. and i couldnt figure out some stuff on my camera so a lot of them were super dark and not good. but i think i figured it out. so there will be a lot more quality pictures from now on
