So yeah, I’m writing this epic email when all the computers in the internet cafe suddenly restart. So here’s the reader’s digest. Didn’t sleep the whole 40 hours in transit to Mongolia, placed a Korean Book of Mormon in the airport, which they were still reading later, went to Zaicen where the land was dedicated, went out for 2 1/2 hours in the gert districts my first day out, sat down and talked with a lot of people, and got 15 invitations to come back and teach. Had an interview with President Anderson, who is awesome, ate some of Bat Bolthd’s wife’s excellent cooking for dinner, finally got 6 hours of straight sleep after 3 days, got my trainer and assignment- Elder Rodriguez and the city of Bogendor (it’s a little east of UB). And then I came here. So yeah, I’m happy, well fed, and ready to go to work.
Random facts: A lot of Mongolian’s are fascinated by how big Americans can get, they also like people who can wrestle and fight, and have talent in any kind of art or music. And Counter Strike is apparently stupid popular in some of the cities (I didn’t even start the conversation, some of the native Mongolian Elders were talking about it). It’s like I’m made for this country 😎
