Dear fam and friends!

This is my second week here at the MTC and its alot faster and better then last week! So far the spanish is going well and I have faith that i will learn it in 8 more weeks! The food here is killing me though... I have gained 4 pounds already, but that is because i dont get as much as i wamt. There is an Elder Tenney here who has gained 10 pounds! Its a bit insane here so far of just being in a single classroom for 12 hours everyday... its pretty nutso so far BUT i do know that it is not as bad as it copuld be. at least i am learning and growing and DOING something worthwhile! If i was home i would just be watching some TV if i wasnt at work... Well today will be the first day of going to the Provo temple which i am excited about! Its beautiful on the outside but i just cant wait to see inside of it...
OH i am missing the tip of my finger! :D just a little accident but my District leader made me go to the doctors... no clue why... Well... it was bleeding ALOT... so maybe thats why... i am fine though and it doesnt hurt and i didnt even need stitches at all. I dont even need a bandaid anymore!
The oldest district in our zone is actually a bunch of great guys that LOVE my room and everyone in it! So... we have some good chances of getting a fridge, and a HUGE leg up in the tie trade here! I have over 30 ties now, and most of them are really great! I got a couple that i wont trade like this AMAZING teal one, or this great one from my companion. And a couple that i brought up with me that i won't trade whatsoever! Oh did i mention how the top of our ceiling is COVERED IN STARS??????? Its pretty epic...
So our teacher loves us, hates hockey, and went to argentina on his mission. OH and he turns 22 next month... weird... Ya... only 2 moths younger than my teacher but he seems SO much older!
On wednesday we grew as a branch because there was a good, 15-20 minutes of laughter to where we even broke our teacher... it was pretty awful.
OH also, there is a HUGE undergropund mountain DEW and Dr Pepper trade here... like insane... I haven't gotten into it yet just because i am afraid... i need most of what i have and i could see me trading everything for 1 more DP... 2 years without DP... that will be tough...
So i am pretty excited about honduras, and i found out that the national flower is the Orchid! Also i cant wait to get there and see the stars...
Well time is up and i need to switch my laundry! Mom... SEND THIS FORWARD!
I love and miss you all and cant wait till you see me all grown up :D

Hola mis familia y amigos!!!
SO today is my first "P-DAY" even though i only really am able top do laundry and then back to learning español! It isnt bad just kind of stressful... I have learned more in the past few days then spanish in high school. Its pretty amazing! It also might be because i FORGOT everything from high school (sorry Señora Carrillo) WELL Yo soy Elder DeGriselles y voy a Honduras San pedro sulas! Yo se que Jesucristo es el Salvador y el Redentor de mundo. WAPPA!!!!!! Man! So... Sleeping is almost non existant, and that is only tiring because i know thats how it will be for 2 years XD I am loving my companion and roommates, they are pretty amazing guys that are really helping me alot. Elder Goddard is from Utah and my companion. pretty awesome guy. Also Elder Lewis and Pugh (pew like a gun noise...) Also there are two missionaries that are heading to Barcelona España! (I found the spanish function on my key board...) Thom is probably excited about the Epsaña informacion, but they are kind of bummed... They might not get their visas in time to get to the Madrid MTC also, so they could be staying with us the whole time... We actually got thrown into a teaching experience yesterday all en español... OH man that was stressful, but it was a pretty good learning experience... Also with it being winter it was really strange but i actually have seen a couple lizards!
The best part of our room is actually a huge star thing on our ceiling!! They are pretty darn awesome! there is Ursa minor and major and orions belt, cassiopia, and the south star! Oh man the stars are actually beautiful up in Utah right now! Well my time is almost up and mis compañero needs to email family also...
God be with you all till we meet again!

So, only a couple more days and Tim is gone! What will happen to him? How will he change? Will he be recognizable? Will he still want to get a degree in Music and have to work at Wal-Mart?
