BIG SUPRISE...he loves the food

Blurbs from his most recent email:

I have had so many great experiences here. When I got off the plane...scary. The Border Patrol wasn´t that bad. I was really surprised when all the people with signs were shouting in the airport trying to taxi people. You think that the drivers in Utah are bad? Nothing in comparison to here. We drive on the road and see people packed into buses like donuts in a fat mans belly. The poverty is very sad here, you can see it by looking at the buildings/homes.

I love the CCM, I have learned so much here...a lot of it is because of my latino companion Elder Villegas. He is very helpful with the Language and very compassionate towards everybody. The food here is authentic...very good and some times picante (hot). I can tell it is going to be a great experience. Today was P-Day. We went to the Lima Temple and it was Elder Villegas´s first time...it was really a cool experience.

I will continue to keep y'all updated. Chau!!

Great to hear of Elder Griffin's experiences. It is hard to believe that we are nearly ready to come home as Taylor is just beginning.
