So to start off I should tell you that I am now the new zone leader... for the last week I am here! The first district (District A) left yesterday and their district had the zone leaders. We would not have needed to assign new zone leaders if we didn't have 19 new missionaries coming to our zone tomorrow! The old zone leaders passed on the traditional 'zone ball' to me and Elder Aguirre (he is the other zone leader). The zone ball is only for zone leaders to play with and me and Elder Aguirre have some pretty intense wall ball games with it while we wait for our district to show up before classes.
We are expecting to have a general authority come in to give a devotional tonight or this Sunday. We think this because at our last devotional, they gave us special instructions for when members of the 12 come to talk. Oh and Elder Nelson's wife talked to us this last Sunday. I enjoy listening to all the people they bring in to talk to us but I really kind of hate listening to people with wet mouths talk. The noise that their lips and spit make on their teeth every time they move their mouth bugs the crap out of me. Despite this constant annoyance, Sister Nelson gave a great talk.
Halloween was alright. We put everyone's name tags into Elder Jardon's pants (because they were the closest thing we had to a bag) and pulled out a name tag. The other Elder's name we got, is who we were for Halloween. I had to prove my identity when I picked up my Halloween package because I was wearing Elder Macinnes's name tag and the package was for an Elder Berry hahaha I got it and there were no more problems.
We like our new rooms alright and I'll attach some pictures at the end of this email. We all really love being on the same floor as the Poly's. There is one Polynesian Elder who can sing really good and today he was singing Opera (but he usually sings just about anything). We all share two giant bathrooms per floor. We gathered around his shower and waited for him to come out so we could applaud him because he didn't know we were outside his shower listening. He also plays the ukulele at night before bed.
Elder Jardon and Elder Macinnes (our two Canadians) had to fly to Vegas yesterday to get their visa's at the Mexican Consulate there. I'm not sure why they had to fly all the way to Vegas for it, when there is one in Salt Lake. I was a little jealous because I would of been able to fly home for a day and then come back to the MTC :D. They loved seeing the Casinos but never went down Vegas Blvd. I think they were on the I-15. They showed me pictures they took and I told them what the Casino/Hotel was and told them if it was a dump or not. Elder Jardon ate some tacos from some restaurant down by the consulate and isn't feeling good today... he said he's never going back to Vegas.
I am so excited to go to Mexico! I leave Monday at 3:30a.m. to head to the airport. It's going to be a long day but I am ready!!!!
