We got our first official email today from Elder Berthelson. He is learning and having a great time. He said that within 20 minutes of being dropped off at the MTC, he was in a full on Spanish class, and it has been all Spanish, all the time. He also said that he has seen 9 elders that he knows since he has been there - including Elder Meikle who is from our area. His companion is Elder Miller, who is from Queen Creek. Elder Berthelson also said that he got to go to the temple today. Each missionary has what is called p-day. This is their personal day. They aren't expected to have meetings, teach the gospel, etc. This is their day to write letters/emails, do something fun in the area - maybe play a game of basketball, and catch up on things like laundry. He said....
Its cool to walk out of the temple and the first thing you see is the BYU football stadium, I thought that was pretty funny. (I'll have to send some pictures)
Here is a map that shows you the 3 landmarks that he talked about in his letter today.....
