I can't wait to hear the stories in the weekly newsletter. Elder Nils finally sent a batch of new pictures in last week's post, so we can get a glimpse of his life in Acapulco. Well, life in Acapulco before the quake, that is. Here he is (above) with his companion eating fresh coconuts. Looks good!

At this point in my post, I wish there was a sarcasm font. You know, a type font that would clue people in that the stuff they are reading was meant sarcastically.
So, obviously I don't think being in Acapulco is a chore. Don't send the hate mail. I was being sarcastic. In truth, it looks pretty darn amazing. And I live in Southern California, so I know from amazing. (I also know from earthquakes, living in So Cal. I know that even though you are fine and the house may be fine, it takes a while to get over it. Still, Nils' dad points out that these missionaries are young and probably thought the whole earthquake thing was fun and exciting. I'm just glad there doesn't seem to be any loss of life that we know of so far. So, I'll just shut up now.)
But then, I see where Nils has written:
I think it's 90 today, but in our house it feels like 70, what with the ocean breeze and all. Did I tell you that we are setting up a hammock in the house this next week? I'll send you some pictures. Man, the mission is just so tough.Maybe Elder Nils needs a sarcasm font, too! Ha.
