April 23, 2010 Letter

Hey! I finally got to a computer! My P-days are on Friday so I will be emailing you on Fridays after we go to the temple. I got to go today to the Provo Temple and from the outside it is a little ugly, but inside is beautiful. I had a good experience there and it felt super peaceful. I miss you guys a lot but I know what I am doing here is what I need to be doing. It's hard not thinking about back home, but I am doing a pretty good job and am not too homesick. The language is still really hard but I can bear a basic simple testimony and prayer in espanol and I am working on the 1st vision. I am trying really hard to always stay diligent and do what I need to be doing and it makes it way easier with my companion. He seriously is soooo spiritual. He knows every scripture for everything and he isn't one of those people who likes to rub it in. He is humble and sincere and at times it's frustrating to see everything come so easy to him, it's nice to have him as a companion. I like the food here, it's really good and there is a lot of it. I see Bryan all the time, I have also seen Josh Caskey, Michael Stanfield and Jake Pehrson. I see Bryan everyday and it's nice to see him, we talk all the time. He is doing well and learning the language really well! I have probably gained 5 pounds this week, but it's all mostly muscle because I am working out everyday. The basketball gym re-opened this week and I totally schooled some elders here so tell dad that nobody has given me crap for my yellow shoes, haha. On a spiritual note, I have learned so much about the gospel and want everyone in my life to know how helpful you have been to me. I miss everyone and really really love what I am doing, the work is hard but the reward is great. LOVE YOU! SOMEBODY SEND ME A CARE PACKAGE I AM HUNGRY!!! Everyone who wants to write, send me letters or dear elders because I have limited time on the computer. Mom send me a dear elder with all my friends addresses that you got....I love you guys so much and hope you know that I know what I am doing is right.

Elder Dastrup
