First Letter From California

It's going great! The people in our ward are awesome! We get fed quite a bit and some members just give us money or take us out to eat quite often.  I'm on a bike and my legs are killing me for now.  Hopefully I can get used to that. My companion is Elder Vance from Mapleton, Utah. He's a really good companion. He likes alot of the same things so I think we'll get along. I will have to try and send you pics next week since I don't have the camera with me. We have to go to a libary to email. I am kinda in the Santa Clara, San Jose area.  I need all that stuff and a pair of jeans since we do a lot of service. So I need an extra pair and maybe some candy haha and all packages have to be sent to the mission home.  Some recipes would be nice like for breakfast and lunch mainly.  My apartment address is 100 Buckingham Dr. appt. #249.  If you could put the mission office and my address up on FB that would be great and also mention they have to write me first if they want to hear from me because we're always busy.  Yes, it is really hot, but it's funy because all the locals are wearing hoodies and jackets and complaining that it's cold. But everything is going good so far. We've only taught 2 lessons so far, but this week we have quite a few more. But I'm excited for next p-day because we are planning on going to the beach!  Today I think  we're going to go play tennis, play some rugby, and maybe bowling. No, I didn't get initiated.  I don't think that will happen because the mission president doesn't like pranks.  Some guys already got chewed out for it.  Our president is pretty cool.  One thing I forgot to mention is the second day I was here, we were riding our bikes and this bullet bike goes flying down the road with 5 cop cars chasing him.  It was pretty cool.  It looked like something out of a movie.  Mom, you asked if we have any stores like Walmart here.  We have a Ross and a Target in our area. So it's pretty great so far. I think I'll enjoy it!

Love Shad
