Letter to Randy & Robyn & family August 3, 2007

Hey Fam!
So the time time seems like it's going so fast yet I feel like I've been out here forever. It's Sunday afternoon and they gave us 5 hours to do whatever we want with only one rule. No sleeping! It's pretty annoying..this whole napping policy. So I've been going over my imperfect past tense and irregulars (Spanish) flash cards. they are pretty annoying all these irregulars that don't follow the conjugations but whatta gonna do?? Me and a bunch of my elder buddies are sitting here in my room writing letters and studying. It's raining hard outside. It's awesome! I love all the rain. I'm growing so much spiritually it's crazy. Every time I testify in practice discussions I can feel such power in the words that I say. My class teachers say that I am a powerful teacher so I think that's kinda cool. My companion is definitely lacking in his people skills and personal skills but man he is smart. He has the Spanish down and he's very knowledgeable in the scriptures.I love the guys in my district, we have so much fun. Were laughing all the time. The work is intense. We start at 6 and end at 9 at night. Every night my brain hurts. It's allot of stuff we are trying to cram in. A whole language and how to be effective representatives of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The area is really beautiful. I can already tell the drivers here are crazy by the noise and honking in the street. We get to take a walk around the area every Sunday. The food here is not the best, but by Guatemala standards, its pretty good. Today for dinner we had a ham sandwich, a thing of jello and a bag of chips. We had a devotional by the Guatemala North Mission President tonight. He was powerful. Then we got mail. We live for mail here. Mom thanks so much for the letter. I want to hear from the family bad!! So write me! I love you all so much. This has been really difficult , but I am already seeing the rewards of my work. the Lord is helping me out I can tell. Please let the family know that I can't get e-mail until after I get to my mission area. So please write.
Yo amo ustedes Mucho! Elder Bulloch

Hey Elder Bulloch family!! I sent a letter to the "pouch" address. I don't know how long it will take to get there. If you want a copy, I will send. Hoping all is well.
