First Week in the Field

Hello All,

I guess this is the first week in the Field for me. I am going to tell you that I have been sent to Utah... I mean Brentwood. but I mean it i am basically in Utah. It looks like Utah, the wards(yes I have 2 wards) are like Utah sized, the members are super happy to help with missionary work, we are fed every night(we have a whole calendar for a dinner schedule, and our wards are in a very nice chapel. so yeah... Utah.
I really love my companion. His name is Elder Tolman. he was actually called Cambodian speaking in the Oakland(so that means we have 4 hrs of study because he has to do language and I have 12 week). It is awesome because he is going to hook me up with some ties that are made in Cambodia, I already have one, they are so cool. He is from Herriman, Utah, and he likes music. and he is a really awesome. also he knows very little about this area, because we got shotgunned into the area, and have to sort through what the missionaries before us have left us. without the members we would of never found our investigators.
Our apartment is pretty cool. except the other elders left it really messy and smelling like smoke. we have been trying to clean it up. but it is taking a long time. I have a car so we drive everywhere because we have two wards. the Brentwood 2nd ward and the Marsh creek ward. They are super helpful. We eat with a member every night, at one the dinners we got to me a Saint Bernard dog he is so big and is still growing
That is all I have to say about to area so far so that is all I will email about till next week.

Note: If you don't all know.  Joshua loves dogs so we loved that most of these pictures of that big Saint Bernard.
