I've been getting a lot of questions so I'll answer them here.
Illinois is very beautiful and flat...very flat. The humidity actually hasn't been very bad at all, it's usually it's worse in July so I just barely missed it. My companions name is Elder Freitas, he turned 23 yesterday. And we're actually getting a long quite well, we bicker a little bit about driving but that's pretty much it. He's the district leader so both of my companions now have been district leaders. God better not be telling me something...haha. The Ward here is great, they love us and try to do anything they can for us. Some member gave us bags full of food Sunday, so it turns out I won't starve here, I'm kidding of course. I think it's impossible to starve in Illinois. One of the members who went out with us to see some people took us to a really good taco place, turns out he ordered tongue on our tacos, I'm glad he didn't tell us till afterwards because I probably would have puked a little. It was actually really good though. The first few days were crazy, due to some complications we moved from the Northern part of our area to the Southern part. We had literally just unpacked and then we were informed that we would be moving again, so we packed up again and moved. I actually like this apartment better, so I'm not disappointed at all. The apartment is located in Kankakee. The other days were sort of just filled with us stopping by a lot of less active members houses and trying to get better acquainted with them and then sharing a spiritual thought. We've mostly gone out with members which is super helpful and nice. On Sunday there were two baptisms, they both just turned 8. One of the fathers asked us to step in on the confirmation so we did! My first mission confirmation maybe? Obviously I can't count it as my own but it was still really cool. My Mission is an iPad mission, they're actually super helpful and nice to have. My specific area is in a car share with the sisters in our area, we get it half of the week, they get it the other half. We do have bikes but we mostly walk and take the bus everywhere. The bus has actually given us lots of opportunities to meet new people and share quick lessons.
Oh, yeah! It rained yesterday, well it rained in my opinion, everyone else said that it was nothing. Thanks for ruining my rain senses California...it's actually supppppper foggy this morning. We can barely see in front of us. And about the Facebook, anyone can add me as a friend but you're not supposed to comment on anything or like any of my posts. But you'll still be able to see my posts and I can see yours.
~Cody is still trying to figure out how to get pictures to us, the one of him and Elder Frietas was sent from his iPad this morning. Hopefully we get more pictures soon!
