A Sample from Andrew's letter - (How cats keep warm in Philly)
"My comp is very funny. Its very needful to laugh on the mission, it makes life easier. He is constantly putting out one liners throughout the day about random hilariousness. One time he seriously asked why squirrels were revered more than rats... They are basically the same thing after all, right?
Cats seem to follow us all of the time. I'm not sure why, but many just walk with us from door to door. Its great when they suddenly dart into a random house without them knowing.
hmm what else
the Rodriguez family is as great as ever. We go over every Sunday and Monday night for Family Home Evening and Sunday night dinners. They really load us up with food throughout the week. Sometimes they make excuses to bring over tons of it. One time they said, "ah, there be a storm comming- I be bringing you food." we didn't have to shop that week because they gave us like 6 bags of groceries.
Every time were over there it is so fun. They don't talk- they shout. Everything they do is crazy and way out there. They are always shouting, even when its just a normal conversation. Its so great.
My 10th month mark is on the 21st, and I'll be honest it hasn't gone fast. I have no idea what people are talking about when they say that the mission goes by fast- because it doesn't. Its long, hard work. I think that they say that just to look like they are happy or something. But that's OK, its a duty, and everyone needs this opportunity..."
