Day 1: Elder Heiner's First Email

Hey everything is going great. It's been tough, because it's been go go go, and I'm taking in so much right now. I now know why everyone says the first day is the hardest day. Everything is so new and it's strange because we are diving straight into the language and the gospel. The language is really tough, but it seems that all the missionaries in my district are struggling as well, so I'm excited to learn with them, but talking is a struggle because I can't speak Spanish at all. Besides that I am still excited for what is to come, but I've been struggling to open my mouth, but knowing it is the first day, I'm sure I'll be able to do better later. My companions name is Elder Fitt, and he is a cool guy, he has a good sense of humor, and he is from Baton Rouge Louisiana. It's hard to keep a conversation going for a while because he is not a sports fan, and you knowing me, I love to talk about sports, and he ran cross-country which I hate running soooooo that has been bit of a struggle, but it has also been fun. We have not yet unpacked, and I don't have a clue where I am going because all of the buildings look exactly the same. I'm doing my best, and it definitely is a new experience but I can't wait to learn and act as a tool in the hand of the Lord. 
So enough about me, let me know how the fam is doing, I know William probably thinks I'm a poo head still and maybe when I get back from my Mish he'll actually love me (that's what I'm hoping). I hope you and mom aren't still crying cause then I'll cry (again). I bet the transition is weird, because it is definitely very weird for me. I love you all so much, and have a great time in AF. Also today is P day, so I will email you guys every Wednesday. Take Luck, and Recuerda Quienes. Love ya

Love Elder Heiner
