hey mom and dad,
How are you? i'm doing really good i think. It's been a really hard couple of days. but things are starting to get better. my days have been really, really slow, and i feel like i've been here for weeks. We are learning spanish crazy fast and we get a ton of information stuffed down our throats. But i'm learning so much. My companion is elder Richens, the one we met at applebees. He is sort of weird and I get frustrated but we are getting along just fine. there are 3 other elders in my district going to cali. elders mckay and shelley. elder mckay is from arizona and elder shelley is from fairview. My comp. and 2 other elders are going to bogota. the rest of the elders in my district are going to the Dominican republic and they leave in 3 weeks for the mtc down there.
I talked to elder hancey last night for a bit. i don't know if he has changed or if I have changed but I really really enjoyed talking to him. I'm writing a big letter with a lot of details today since i don't have a lot of time.
everyone says to make it to sunday and the time starts flying by. I hope this is true because it is super super slow right now.
i just wanted to let you know that i'm doing ok. you're letter the first day really helped me to forget myself and get to work. but i miss you and you'll get a letter soon with a lot more details but i'm almost out of time.
I love so much!!!
elder corey hoddenbach
