First week in country!

Hey everybody!

Well I made it to Cambodia safe and sound from the MTC! I'm gonna have such a great 2 years here! I'm so excited to get out there and serve!

I'm trying to wrap my head around the people and the culture and the language and everything, but here are some things that happened this first week of my mission:

1.) An old dude told us so casually that he can't go to church because he is coughing up worms.

2.) Someone bore his testimony for half an hour and said, "don't angry bird". Whatever that means.

3.) Someone else told me that when i go home from Cambodia that I need to, "tell America that           Cambodia is messed up." Silly! I still have 2 years to go!

4.) Last night I had a dream that I was going home, and I couldn't sleep afterwards! So scary! And then I just started laughing hysterically thinking about how one day I can say that I spent 2 years in Cambodia. How random is that!

Well, one day when I finish my mission it will be great to say that I did it. I achieved the impossible. That I've learned a lot.  But that day is so far away.

Until then, see you next week :)

Love, Elder Slavens
