"Elder.....what language are those people speaking?"

We heard from Elder Riddle this weekend.  Apparently, ether Bobby is sneaking into the MTC Presidents office to send email, or they have a computer lab set up.  We were informed that the MTC had no computers long before he left.  But things can change. I had to laugh when we got his email,  He said that he is having a hard time understanding what the Africans are saying.  It reminded me of the movie "The Best Two Years" when one new missionary hears Dutch for the first time and asked his companion what language that was. He said that is not the language he was taught at the MTC.   Everything is going good for him.  Sounds like he is just getting settled in, and being kept busy.  I know it has only been a few days, but he said that he has not been outside yet except for the drive to the MTC from the airport.  He said the food so far is good.  Mostly rice, with chicken or fish.  But they did have spaghetti for one meal.  We hope to hear more from him on Tuesday.
