Hello my favoritest family ever!!! I miss you all, and love you so much, but I LOVE it here!! Last Wednesday we woke up at the MTC at 4:45, then went to Pres. and Sister Sperry's home. And I met my trainer!!
OH...mail is SO much easier than we thought. So for my mission they do mail runs every two weeks and that's when I send and receive the mail that came during that time. Pouch is the easiest, and probably only way, we should send it, and you can use envelopes! You just write a normal letter, and address it how you've been addressing the single paper, and write pouch in the bottom right corner. You only need one stamp to get it to Salt Lake and then it comes to me in 2 or 3 weeks. But it's really easy and you could probably even get some pictures folded into the paper!
But the address I gave you for the P.O. box at the Quezon City post office, send ALL my packages to that address! It's just like a normal letter, but it's through the church so it actually gets to me! ha
But I hope everyone's doing good, I love you SO MUCH!! You're the BEST family I could ask for, I appreciate you more every single day :)
LOVE, Sister Benesch
PS -- Actually our apartment is really nice! It's 2 stories, the bottom is a big room with a table and kitchen, and my bathroom, YES I have a shower however it has like zero pressure and doesn't really work so I use a bucket and scoopy thing..haha very interesting :) and it's cold water! But it's so hot that it just feels really good! And then upstairs is a room where our desks are and we study, we have a balcony that we don't use except to dry our clothes that we hand wash!! ha And then our bedroom with a bunkbed and "mattress" ha it's comfortable enough...and then Sister Mabini's bathroom. And we haven't had any bugs or anything and we have like 4 fans that we always have blowing on us, so it's good! our meals have been interesting though...just throwing together Random things we find in the fridge :P
