The MTC (week 1)

Hey mom, 

I am doing good here. Everything is awesome. I almost cried when I was saying goodbye to everyone at the airport but I was able to be strong. Are the raya and jacy okay?

There are nine guys just in my zone that are going to buenos aires west and they are all awesome guys. My comp is from gilbert arizona and we sat next to eachother on the flight!!!! Crazy. His name is Bromley Udall. He went to Gilbert high school. And we figured out that we went to the same jr high together but we barely recognize each other. He's a great guy. We have the same sense of humor so we get along well. I'm getting along with everyone because everyone here is so nice and easy to get along with and because no one here really knows what's going on, haha. I feel really comfortable with all the people here.

Its very tiring stuff here. Before, when I read Cole and other peoples emails from the MTC, I thought that everyone was just being a baby about it, but they were serious, haha, it's non-stop hard work at the MTC. 3 years of high school Spanish was pretty much useless but I'm doing my best and its coming along. I learned a lot yesterday. I taught my first lesson yesterday in Spanish and I was sweating a lot afterwards. I haven't heard my teachers speak one word of english yet but I'm determined to catch them if they slip. 

I haven't taken any pictures yet but I'm on it. Also the average height in my zone is 6 foot 2. There's 3 guys that are 6'5, and the rest are between 6'2 and 6'4, then we have two shorter guys and the sister missionaries. My zone was joking around that it's because people don't want to rob super tall guys because we might scare them, plus we can run away quickly!! 

It's really spiritual here. You can't help but feel happy with all the people here with the same attitude and feelings and desires to serve the Lord.

That's it. I'll try to send pictures next week.

Love you, 
Elder Ren Porter
