The first day was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. I am really looking forward to getting out into the field. There was a lot of going to and from places, and there are quite a bit of missionaries going out to Philly. Apparently, every companionship is getting iPhones/iPads for all the teaching tools. My class teacher was Jake's companion for a bit, too! Elder Vogt (vote) is his name. We did a lot of teaching things, like teaching "invesigators" and role plays, stuff like that. I DID have green vegetables! I am not going to gain weight while I'm out here! Day one was a good day. Tell Daisy and baby Emmy I love them.
