In the Frontier - Week 9

So this week we picked up a new Nissan Frontier! It is really nice and handles well on the dirt roads that we have.

But, good afternoon everyone!

Elder Baker, how far away is that plane? - Week 8

Preface: A TON of airplanes fly over our apartment. All the time.

One night walking into the apartment:
Elder Tyler: Elder Baker, how far away is that plane?
Me: I have no idea.
Elder Tyler: About 22 months!
Me: Wow, low blow! It's about 9 months for you!

So the other night I experienced the plane joke, as all Greenies should.

Anyway, I had a pretty good week! Ups and downs were present.

First week in the field - Week 7

This week has been amazing!

To answer main questions, I am in the Sahuaro Branch, in the Sahuarita Arizona Stake. It is southwest of the city of Tucson. We are fed every night and we get some pretty awesome Mexican food! My companion is Elder Tyler from Orem Utah. He is very nice and we get along really well! We have similar interests and we have fun and get a lot of work done. He works hard and is a good example. We live in an apartment that is nice and cozy. I am learning what to buy food wise. Last week I bought juice, a loaf of bread, peanut butter, and honey. I have peanut butter and honey toast every morning and I have a nice PB&J when we dont have dinner. I think I need to branch out but it is hard. When I first got here I had to buy some necessary, non-food items.
