When we got to lansing and we ment the president and sister jones with the AP(assitents to the president) we went to his house. then we went out and went tracking for a house around michigan state(MSU). Then we went back and had dinner their which was pizza haha.. then later that night all the missionaries we all went to bed around 9, but we stayed up talking tell about 10 or whenever we all fell asleep, then we ment are traininers the next day during lunch at the church. then we went to the mission home and got everthing their, but the only package that i got was my beding and the stuff that was in their. but everything is going good for now. My new compaion/trainer is from new zeland, he has been here in alpena for about 4 and a half mouths now. yesturday(friday) was is 9 mouths he has been out in Michigan. but then on thursday was my first full day in alpena, it went better then i thought tho i wasnt nerves like i thought i was going to be which was a good thing i guess. Today we have to wash are cloths but we are not going to do that tell later on this evening sometime after we have are service around 2 michigan time(12 noon your time). are service we are going over the soup kitchen and help serving it to other people. we also have to go and get some food for are apartment like milk and eggs and a few other stuff that we need. and we have branches for church right now thats it no wards yet, and we go at 10am so 8am your time.
