basic training

our first day of training has come and gone, and we now completely understand the definition of the term “information overload”. we had the opportunity to see all of the equipment, but did not have any hands on training which was tough for arminda and me, both. so it was extremely hard trying to remember how to set up all of our equipment without getting to get our hands on it.

we were split up into different group and we are of course in the married peoples group. the other married couples are close to our age and it has been really cool getting to know them and learn with them. one married couple that we have become really good friends with is ashley and steve barnwell. they are a really cool couple who just got married in january and have a love and passion for God, His gospel and students.

here is a picture of us after a long day of training!! miss you all!

it has been a long, long day, but it was pretty cool because minda and i both (thankfully haha) passed our driving test and had the opportunity to go to the west coast famous in -n- out! mmmm tasty burgers. i wasn't the biggest fan of their fries, but we were told that we had to get them "animal style"; which apparently is their fries with melted cheese, bacon bits, thousand island dressing, and grilled onions on top. sounds pretty crazy good, so we are definitely going to have to make a trip back to check that out.
