3 Weeks Down, 3 More to Go!

Here is Jake's letter he sent today.  If you don't know who Devin Graham is then Google Devin Supertramp.  He was in Guatemala City this last week.

Hello everyone!
So we were able to get new missionaries in last week. Some of them are going to El Salvador but not my mission. Next week we will get the new Latinos going to my mission. So our schedule is basically like this: wake up at 6:30 then we work out for an hour and then study till breakfast. Study till lunch and then finally... Study till dinner. Oh and study till bed. So lots of studying.. The weather is always perfect and I love it! We saw rain for the first time today but it was only for a min and now its like a trillion degrees outside. It's awesome to hear about everything at home! This week we are doing an English fast and we aren't allowed to speak any English. It's really hard but we learn a ton
and it makes things pretty funny. We took another picture but we still haven't gotten it. Oh and it says that we can't receive packages but we can. The prez was telling us that they always let them in, just make sure it says Elder Stiles. One of my friends just got a package from his mom with a bunch of stuff in it. And I have not gotten any of the Dear Elders. They usually take 7 to 14 days. This new group we got lot of Dominicans and their Spanish is really bad. They make their J's sound like S's which is quite annoying. Something interesting we learned this week which I thought was pretty funny was that we are Matchmakers here in the mission and we are out here to find our investigators one true love... God. We are like that friend that hooks two of your other friends up. We have come to the conclusion that they ARE starving us for the mission field. Cause every week we are more and more hungry. I've learned to love salad cause its good to fill up on after we scarf down all our food. Devin Graham came and spoke at one of our teacher's wards and he was telling us how much he loved him and I showing him the picture of the drift trikes and he thought they were the coolest things ever.

Love Elder Stiles
