We went to the Bogota temple :)

Hello from the CCM!!!! Life has been fantastico! The days have started to go pretty fast. By the way, I'm already forgetting how to spell stuff in English (also I'm just bad at writing), so if you end up not being able to read what I wrote, I do apologize. So much has happened in the last nine days! The first day I flew in with a bunch of nortes (that's what they call us here) and there were a lot of them! There were 14 missionaries that all flew to the Bogota CCM together. My companion Elder Marsh, is from South Jordan, Utah. In fact the latinos (that's what we affectionately all call the native missionaries that are at the CCM) all say that anyone that comes from the US is coming from Utah. And they are pretty much right XD We have been doing lots of practicing Spanish, mostly by teaching lessons to investigadors in Spanish. It is terrifying!! some of the things that you want to say, are really hard to say in Spanish. 

Also i am still alive because I am eating the food!!! I know what your all thinking.... COMO??? (HOW???) but yes i actually enjoy a lot of the food here, even though it is a lot different. That first morning for breakfast with a hotdogs, hot chocolate, sweet rolls, and to drink we had yogurt. Also, if you dip the sweet roll in the hot chocolate, it tastes really good just in case you were wondering. Lunch is the biggest meal of the day here. 

We went to the Bogota Temple and it was really beautiful, I learned that during the session there was one of the Seventies in our session which was pretty cool. Then I realized that I sat next to him, THE WHOLE TIME! I had no idea, but yeah h sat next to the temple president and a Seventy the entire time. So yeah, life is good, and I Love Being a Missionary!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love you all,

Elder Kendall 

P.S. if any of you are feeling down on yourself, or like you don't know how to carry on, I want you to read Alma 26. Yeah that's right the whole chapter. Its one of my favorites of all time and I know that it can help you find the many reasons we have to REJOICE!!
