This week was AWESOME! So much better than the previous week. For starters, we set a new record for the number of lessons I've ever taught in a week with a whopping 46. Elder Gonzalez is learning super fast, and I'm able to let him take the initiative for more lessons now. We've also gotten a lot better at asking "the question" (which I believe I explained in my last week's email), so we've gotten a lot more references and investigators. We found 14 new people last week, so we have a week full of appointments right now and a service project on Friday where we're going to basically paint a whole house with a bunch of jovens.
We've also found some investigators that really want to progress, one of which is named Emily. Her husband Giovani is a less active who came to church yesterday (YES!), but her work schedule changes every week, so she'll only be able to come every two weeks. Normally the rule is 5 church attendances before baptism, but we talked to President Egbert, and he said that he can make an acception for this situation and only require 3 attendances, so she'll be baptised in like 6 weeks (instead of 10)! We've also got a few who I feel can really go far and seem to really want to know our message is true. We'll see what happens with them in this coming week.
I also received the interesting news that Elder Bednar will be coming down to our mission next month to give a devotional to us missionaries, and I'll be playing about 20 minutes of prelude music on the piano beforehand. Talk about pressure, but I'm not super worried. I'm just really excited to hear Elder Bednar speak to us! I think he's coming on the 18th of May, so there will certainly be more on that after it happens.
I actually have a funny experience of the week this week, and it happened during a lesson. We knocked on this door in the new area we acquired 4 weeks ago, and an older lady answered. We contacted her and set an appointment for another day, and we then asked her "the question". She told us her sister lives right around the corner and that she's "super Catholic", which is usually a bad sign for us. Either way, it was a reference, so we went and contacted her. She's actually the least Catholic lady I've ever met. The only thing Catholic about her was that she worships the virgin. She doesn't read the Bible and knows hardly anything about it, and she thinks that death is the end of everything. Like, we die, and... yeah. It's for that reason that she showed a lot of interest in the Plan of Salvation when we mentioned it. We explained a little bit, but we left her with the Plan of Salvation pamphlet, and we'll be going back tomorrow to teach it for real. None of that was the funny part, though. After just about everything I said, she responded with, "Si, güero". Güero means "white guy" in Spanish, so she was basically saying, "Yes, white guy" after everything I said... Including the baptismal invitation. I was a little surprised and of course happy she said yes in the first place, but at the same time, I couldn't help but think, "...really?" Elder Gonzalez and I left her house and just started laughing as we walked to our next appointment.
I also was paid a really nice compliment this week. We taught a lesson to a less-active family in our ward who had some other family from out of town visiting them. Some of them weren't members, so we decided to go with something pretty universal: The Atonement. We taught the lesson, it was awesome, and then they invited us to eat with them for a little bit afterwards. One of them asked Elder Gonzalez where he was from and how much time he had in the mission, and then they turned to me and said, "You're about to finish your mission, right?" When I responded by telling them I only had 4 months in the mission, they didn't believe me. "But you handle Spanish so well!" I told them thank you, of course, but I attributed my success to the gift of tongues that the Lord has given me, and I always will.
As I said, throughout this week I've been Elder Gonzalez take the initiative in some of our lessons, so we've been switching off sharing the spiritual thought during the food every day. Most of the time, Elder Gonzalez would share Mosiah 2:49 which talks about how the people who keep the commandments of God will be blessed spiritually and temporally and they'll reach a state of... "interminable felicidad". I'm not sure how that translates into English. Anyways, he'd been sharing that scripture all week, and we would pretty much say the same things to the members. Last night, however, we taught a less active family a quick lesson, and when Elder Gonzalez busted out that scripture, a different part caught my attention, and I finally realized something very important that is said very often in the scriptures. At the end of the scripture, it says, "Oh, remember remember that these things are true, for the Lord your God hath declared them." I've heard this statement made in the scriptures plenty of times and I had usually just thought, "Oh yeah, that's just what the scriptures say." For whatever reason, this time when Elder Gonzalez read that verse, this last part caught my attention, more specifically when it says, "remember remember". The word remember is so important when talking about the things of the gospel. If we can remember the things that we've learned, the covenants we've made, and the way we've felt as we've studied the gospel, enduring to the end will not be any problem for us. We can easily continue doing the things we shoudl and following the example of Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, Satan wants us to forget, and it is for that reason that it is so easy to do so. That's why it says the word "remember" twice in this verse and in many other scriptures in the Book of Mormon; because it's so important that we remember. The fact that after having heard/read this scripture so many times but that this time it was different only reinforces my testimony of the Book of Mormon. Dad always taught me that it didn't matter how many times he read the Book of Mormon; he always learned something new every time he opened it and started reading. I'm reading in 3rd Nephi right now, and it's so awesome! Jesus Christ is teaching, so you know it has to be pretty sweet. The Book of Mormon is a really special book, and I know it's true beyond a shadow of a doubt. It's the key to everything we believe and everything I share with investigators. If we can obtain a testimony of the Book of Mormon, we can obtain a testimony of anything and everything else. Of that I have testified, do testify, and will always testify.

Q&A with Elder Groesbeck (questions by Mark Groesbeck)
1. do you teach english classes to the members?
I actually do teach an English class for anyone who wants to go every Wednesday night at 7:30.
2. do you have an magic tricks or things you do to make kids like you? (wilting tie, etc)
Please, I don't need magic tricks to make children like me. I just try to speak Spanish and they all think it's hilarious.
3. how many missionaries in your mission come from Mexico?
I have no idea... Elder Guerra, the third member of my trio, came from Mexico, but Elder Gonzalez is from Costa Rica. I really have no clue what the percentage is.
4. When you say you want to have grandsons one day does that mean you think of your trainer as a dad and when you train a new missionary he is your son and when your son trains you gain a grandson?
Yep. Mission terminology. Everyone is related in the big family of the mission in some way. I supposedly have one brother (Elder Hixon trained someone else) and a nephew (he trained when I was being trained), and Elder Hixon now has two grandsons.
5. How frequently do you teach English to other missionaries or is this just done by companionships
Every evening, Elder Gonzalez and I try to speak English in the house to help him learn, and he actually already knows a lot. Just a few minors things to fix in his grammar, and he'll be just fine.
6. what has been the coolest place you have visited on P day?
We haven't really gone anywhere on P day yet. We're a little far away from Teotihuacan and any of the cool pueblos, so unless we have members that can take us, it's not really worth it to go out anywhere.
7. Are their lots of mopeds on the streets or just bicycles?
They have cars here in Mexico... But people do ride motorcycles and mopeds as well.
8. Do you see people balancing stuff on their heads - like taking food to market?
I feel like that's more Idian than Mexican. Maybe they do that in the pueblos, but I'm more towards the city.
9. What is the weirdest pet you have seen in a home?
I haven't seen very many weird pets in homes, but there's a pet store in our area that has a decent-sized crocodile sitting in a tank. I have yet to see one in someone's home, though.
10. Do you miss mom's cinnamon rolls?
Is that even a question?
11. what kind of jobs do members hold?
They do just about everything. Selling things on the streets, cutting hair, owning an internet cafe, paper shops, you name it. There are actually quite a few of them that work on Sundays as well... the Sabbath Day is a huge problem down here in Mexico. It's so bad that in our ward conference this past sunday, every single talk was about the Sabbath Day, the songs were about the Sabbath Day, and I gave the lesson in Gospel Principles class where the subject was (you guessed it) the Sabbath Day.
Oh boy, this week... I'll start by saying that I don't think I've ever known the sun to be so mean. We had a lot of appointments this week fall through, so at least 2 hours of almost every day (some days 3 or 4) were spent biking around the streets of our area and trying to either think of someone we could visit or unsuccessfully looking for new investigators. I was not expecting such an exhorbitant amount of time in the sun, so I did not put on sunblock for the first few days. Yes, I burned, but only a little bit. And it really doesn't hurt. Fear not, I have learned from my mistake, and it shall not worsen!
This week was also a little stressful for me; it just seemed like everything hit me all at once. Friday night, I was sitting at my desk writing in my journal (Elder Gonzalez had gone to bed), and I just sat there thinking afterwards. I realized that we really don't have any progressing investigators. Even though a lot of them are receptive to us and our teachings, none of them have been to church, and those that have have only been once and then don't go again. We did divisions this week with the Assistants (they're also our zone leaders), and had the most successful day with Elder Clark that I've had in a long time; 10 lessons, all of which were really great lessons. Taking this into consideration, I just couldn't help but feel like I was doing something wrong, or that I needed to change something in order to be a better missionary.
And then Sunday happened. We had 4 investigators that said they were going to go to church, and they gave us a wholehearted "yes, I want to go" along with what they were going to do to ensure they got to church. Not a single one came. We were going to pass by and walk with two of them, and while waiting for one, the other one called and said she wouldn't be able to make it, and then the mother of the first came outside and said that she wouldn't either. We anxiously waited in church for either of the other two with no avail. On top of that, neither of our recent converts came. Needless to say, I was SUPER bummed out during all of church that morning; Elder Gonzalez was as well, but I feel like he didn't feel quite the extent of the failure I felt. We headed home in silence.
Fortunately, we found some jovens in the street that said they were actually looking for us to see if we could help them with some visits to the less active youth of the ward. We didn't have any set appointments for a few hours, so we decided to go for it. Everything changed with them. They knew their way around a little bit better than we did, so we just followed them for a little bit. When we had visited the people they had planned to visit, they told us they could stay out with us for the rest of the night, so we went to work. We went to 2 appointments of ours, and then we knocked on some doors. The first door we tried: "yeah, I have time for a message of Jesus Christ. Do you just want to do it out here?" "Uhhhh...yeah!" Taught a quick lesson, accepted us back later this week. Second door we knocked: "Yeah, we have some friends that are members that live just down the street! (The jovens knew who they were) Do you want to come in? We just finished eating if you want some food, too!" "Uhhhh... yeah!" Went in, sat down, taught a quick lesson, they accepted us back for next weekend. I don't even know what it was, but it was an absolutely wonderful. I'm still waiting on the next miracle, but yesterday really helped animate me for this coming week, and sometimes that's all we really need to keep us going until we find that next miracle. It's for that reason that I'll be trying to get jovens to go with us just about every day (including this evening) to keep us animated and hopefully finding miracles.
Iré y haré,
Q&A with Elder Groesbeck (questions by the Hill Family)
1. Have you seen any llamas in Pachuca, Mexico? If so, how did the llamas migrate from South America to Mexico; did they take a maritime route or cross the narrow neck of land by foot?
Were you referring to the Ecuadorian llamas or the Columbian llamas?
2. Is a sombrero part of your mission approved attire?
If you count my bike helmet as a sombrero, then absolutely. Otherwise, I don't think so.
3. What's your most creative door approach?
This one comes from the elder who was with us for those 4 weeks last cycle, Elder Guerra: "Hi, we're missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Can my companion use your bathroom?" I was so confused, but they let us come in so Elder Hixon could use the bathroom. Unfortunately, they really weren't interested and have always been "occupied" every time we've gone back.
4. The hummingbird prepares for migration across the Gulf of Mexico to the tip of the Yucatan by accumulating fat reserves that are thought to be able to sustain them for a 600 mile flight without stops. They have a intense feeding activity prior to migration is called "hyperphagia" where they more than double their body weight by eating nectar and lots and lots of insects. So the question is, what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Given the presented facts and the average wind speed during the voyage of the migration routes of an unlaiden swallow, it would be approximately 36.839 miles per hour.
5. Do you dream in Español?
I think I've had about 3 dreams that I can remember in Spanish, but I've been catching myself thinking in Spanish a lot more lately with Elder Gonzalez as my companion.
6. What is the strangest response you've gotten while tracking?
Mostly just stories that people randomly decide to tell us that have nothing to do with missionarywork or anything but that they want to share. People here in Mexico want to tell absolutely everyone about their problems in the hopes that they'll get some money or something. Fortunately, we offer something much better than money: The gospel!
7. We are concerned that your improv skills are becoming rusty and would like to help you by having you finish the following diddy from Monty Python's Holy Grail. Sir Robin's Mistrel begins, "Bravely bold Sir Groesbeck rode forth from Houstonia. He was not afraid to preach or... (run from llamas)"
You know, the thing about comedysportz high school was that we didn't play the singing games. We played the acting games which is far more my playing field. Besides, how would you know whether or not I improv'ed it? I have a full hour and a half to type all of this.
8. What is Mexican food called in Mexico?
9. Do South American llamas that have migrated to mexico chase or spit on missionaries?
Refer to my response to question 1.
Well this week was... mehhhh. It went by pretty quickly, which I was actually pretty happy about. We just had a lot of appoitments fall through (mostly with the people in the sisters' area), and the sun was just awful, so I got pretty downhearted a few times. BUT! There's nothing that a little hard work can't fix, so we went out, kept knocking doors, and found some pretty neat people. It's rather interesting, I can be feeling pretty terrible during the day, but when I knock a door and have the chance to talk to someone (other than my companion... No offense, Elder Gonzalez), I almost always leave the door feeling a little bit better. There have been a few times where they just reject us super hard, but those occasions only happen like once a week. If I can get a really good, solid contact--one that's more than just "Hey, can we give you a card of Jesus Christ? No? Oh... have a good day"--I always feel good inside. I get that feeling of "At least we left them with a good impression of us missionaries/Mormons".
Elder Gonzalez is learning really fast; he says he doesn't know any English, but he got a 39/40 on his first English test. Needless to say, he's very humble. Our similarities are actually a little frightening at times. Like me, he needs to be shown an example or two before he can do it on his own, so during week one, I took the initiative a lot and showed him the example. This week, we've been transitioning to the point where he takes the initiative when we teach, and he's been doing awesome. I can't wait to see what he'll be like when we hit the second cycle. His biggest challenge right now is just knowing where in the area we are, but he's getting that down as well. As soon as he figures it out for sure, we'll be able to do divisions and get tons of lessons and investigators and stuff! :D I'm so excited for these coming weeks with him!
Life as a district leader has been fine so far. We had the zone capacitation last week, so I didn't have to give a class. All I've had to do at this point is check up on the two other missionaries in my district every other day or so to make sure they're still alive and take their numbers. Just kidding, they're champs, so I pretty much just call to see if there's anything they need from us as elders (go with an investigator to a Priesthood thing or anything like that). I'll be giving my 2nd class on Wednesday, so hopefully that goes pretty well.
In terms of investigators, I have found myself at times (especially on Sunday when Sacrament meeting starts) losing faith in our investigators. We had invited 5 different investigators to church this past week, and every single one of them said they would go... Not a single one showed up... We even went to the home of one of them Sunday morning to walk to church with her, and she didn't wake up -_- On the bright side, we had our two recent converts and a couple of the less-active families we've been teaching show up. Basically, we just need to find more investigators. If we can invite 20 different investigators, we're bound to get at least one show up!
The other big news of the week is that we got everything moved into our new house. I felt like it was like changes, but worse; We not only had to pack up and move all of our stuff, we also had to take inventory of what we needed to bring with us from the old house and what we were going to put in storage. We got everything moved in about 3 hours, though, so I feel like that wasn't too bad in terms of time. Their house is slightly roomier (which I really like), but I absolutely hate the shower head. It just has a few little tiny streams of water that shoot out of it, so it takes a full minute and a half to wash all of the shampoo out of my hair as opposed to 20 seconds. Ugh. It's a hard knock life.
And that's pretty much been this week. Nothing super crazy/dangerous. It rained pretty intense last night, but that's about it. I lied; the power went out as I was writing this post because a hurricane came out of nowhere... Obviously, I'm still alive and well, and the added responsibility hasn't killed me... yet. I'm really just excited right now to get out and work some more. We'd been talking about a talk called The 4th Missionary for these past few weeks in our district class, and it talks about the 4 different types of missionaries and how we should all strive to be the fourth missionary, who gives his entire heart, might, mind, and strength to the Lord as he serves for his two years (or her 18 months) and his very nature is inevitably changed by the mission; I believe I mentioned this in my last week's blog post. Anyways, in the first district class that I taught, we discussed the last 6 pages of this talk, which focused solely on the attributes of the fourth missionary. There was something that came to my mind as I was teaching, and taking it to be a prompting of the Spirit, I acted on it. The thought was a little something like this: "No fourth missionary has ever said, 'I want to be a district leader' or 'I want to be a zone leader' and yet, normally they become said leaders. My question is why? If they never ask for these positions nor want them, why do they always get them?" My answer is simple: Fourth missionaries area willing to give absolutely everything they've got and then some. They will serve with every fiber of their very being whether they're an assistant to the Mission President or a junior companion, they will serve. The interesting thing about fourth missionaries is that everyone knows is when someone is or becomes one. Investigators, members, fellow missionaries, the Lord (obviously), and the Mission President. It is for this reason that the fourth missionary receives these assignments to be a leader. The only things he will change in these leadership positions will be in accordance to what he needs to do to better serve the missionaries in his district/zone/mission. He will not gloat in his new responsibility nor ask for anything more. He will serve siltently and humbly for as long as he is called to do so, and he will continue to do so even after his mission. I mentioned last week that we need to be fourth members of the church, whether we are an apostle, a bishop, or the sacrament meeting chair coordinator (thanks, Dad, for the idea). We need to give all of our heart, might, mind, and strength in this gospel. It is through this and this alone that we can achieve exhaultation. We may not wake up tomorrow and be able to make a drastic change of effort such as this, but little by little, as we magnify our callings and assignments, we can change ourselves and make our work in the church second nature. I may not feel adequate at times for the responsibilities that have been placed on my shoulders, but I will serve humbly and bit by bit give everything I have until my work is finished. I love missionary work; I love serving the people of Mexico, I love serving my fellow missionaries, and I love serving the Lord.Iré y haré.
There are no questions this week
First of all, I apologize to everyone for my lack of writing last week. Elder Hixon was leaving the next day and just HAD to say goodbye to a bunch of people, eating up all of our time to write. This week, however, I have un buen of news (pardon the Spanglish). So as I'm sure you may have realized, last week was changes. Elder Hixon went home, and Elder Guerra left Valle Dorado, leaving me with a new companion. I shall run you all through that day.
I had already known that I was going to be a language specialist (teaching English to the Spanish missionaries) because the Mission President's wife texted Elder Hixon and told him to orient me for it. She also said "I hope he's ready for what's coming!" Needless to say, I was freaking out that morning wondering what was going to happen. We arrived at the changes meeting, talked with a few missionaries for a while, and then it started. First they announced the language specialists, and I had to go up and get some manuals and stuff. No big deal. As part of the changes meeting, President always annouces who the trainers of the next cycle are going to be. I thought, "Oh, that's neat. Look at all of those great missionaries that are going to train the new ones." Suddenly, I could have sworn I heard President say, "Elder Groesbeck va a ser un entrenador," followed by the exclamations from many missionaries saying, "¡Eso es todo, Groesbeck!" and Elder Guerra ushering me up to the special row for trainers. My world melted around me as everything dissolved into utter shock, awe, and silence. I heard nothing else for the rest of the meeting until he said, "In Valle Dorado, Elder Groesbeck will serve as a district leader, and he'll be training Elder Gonzalez," followed by more exclamations of "¡No manches!" "¡Eso es todo!" and so on and so forth. I still have no words to describe my feelings at this point. After having finished my training the weekend before, I became a trainer-district-leader-language-specialist. I stil have no idea what to do with myself. I feel like I have so much to do and absolutely no time to do it.
As if that wasn't all, we received a very interesting call from President Egbert. "Hey Elder Groesbeck. We have some news for you. There are some missionaries elsewhere in the mission that are going home, and some emergency changes have to be made. We're going to be taking the sisters out of your ward, and you two are going to move into their house and have their area as well. Hermana Garcia is going to be coming to the offices at 1 o'clock this afternoon, so you need to go over there now and have them show you their area book." I'm just gonna say, the refiner's fire is real. On top of everything else, I now have double the area the explore with my completely new companion. So much responsibility all at once! Gah!
I have decided, however, to take a different approach at looking at all of this. I am actually quite honored that President Egbert feels that I can handle all of this. Being a language specialist just means that I already have a relatively firm grasp of the language and that I can teach and help other missionaries. He made me a district leader because he has high hopes for me and feel that I can handle the added responsibility. He made me a trainer for who knows why, but everything is actually going quite well with my new companion. Elder Gonzalez is a champ. He's from Costa Rica, and he already speaks quite a bit of english. We speak Spanglish in the house at night so he can practice. Like myself, he's left-handed and an older missionary (he's 26). I have high hopes for my son, and I hope to have a grandson in 11 weeks. I can only hope to shape his mission and overall destiny in a similar way that Elder Hixon shaped mine.
I've come to the realization in this past week with all of this change and responsibility that it is not the trials we do or do not face that make us who we are. Trials and challenges will always come. It is in our attitude and how we face them that make us who we are and shape our destiny. And so my question is this: How will you face your trials? Will you sit around and mope as they slowly but surely engulf you in a sea of difficulty? Or will you swim above them? My challenge for everyone is to swim. Swim until you can swim no more, and when you have absolutely nothing left, the Lord will be there to help you. My prayers have become a lot more fervent, and I find absolutely no shame in that. The Lord is always there to help us, but it requires an effort on our part first. Swim.
Iré, haré, y nadaré,
Q&A With Elder Groesbeck (Questions by Pam Smith, his Aunt)
1. Is there much change in the seasons that is noticeable spring/summer, etc?
There's a noticable winter/summer, but there really isn't a Spring. It rained every day for almost 3 weeks straight if that counts as Spring, but it was still super hot.
2. Do you have many dinner appointments with members?
We only eat lunch with members. Lunch here is the big meal of the day, and we eat around 2. We're on our own for dinner at night after planning and everything, so I usually just make a quesadilla or a grilled cheese.
3. How many missionaries in your entire mission?
I think we have about 150? But I'm really not sure.
4. Are there many sister missionaries or senior missionaries?
It seems like there are more sister missionaries than Elders; Thus far in all 3 of the districts I've been in, they've been mostly (if not all) sisters with me and my companion(s).
5. What do you miss most? (food wise?)
I don't know... The food here is actually one of the things I love most about Mexico. It's all really rich and natural. I think it'll be pretty weird when I come back in two years and don't eat every single meal with tortillas...
6. What’s your favorite scripture?
To share, I love Mosiah 2:41. It just applies to everything. To read/appply, definitely 1 Nephi 3:7. Like I end all of my blog posts, iré y haré (I will go and do).
7. What conference talk did you like the best?
Oh my gosh, Generaly Conference as a missionary is the BEST! The sessions just flew by way too fast. I must say, though, I (as usual) absolutely loved Elder Holland's talk. It was so simple but so powerful, and I didn't write a single thing about it. I was captivated the entire time.
Sorry, I don't have like any time left to read/respond to your email! I'll mark it as unread, and it'll be the first thing I do next week! Let Dad know for me as well. It's Elder Hixon's last day, so we've been running around all day saying goodbye to people. For my blog post, you can just say that I'll be staying here in this area for at least another 6 weeks, and this time tomorrow, I'll have another companion. We had our baptism for Paola on Thursday and she was confirmed yesterday, and we ended Elder Hixon's mission with a weekly record of 44 lessons.
Q&A with Elder Groesbeck (questions by Mark Groesbeck, his dad)
1. Where do you wash your clothes?
We wash them at a laundromat semi-close to our house
2. Have you washed your sheets yet?
I literally wouldn't be able to carry all of my clothes and a bunch of sheets to a laundromat. So no.
3. What is the weirdest pet you have seen?
We saw a dog that had a big old tumor on its chin, and it just looks plain weird... Nothing too crazy in terms of specific types of animals for pets, though.
4. Have any dogs caught you yet?
Elder Hixon has had some pretty close (and utterly hilarious) calls with them. He's a lot more afraid of dogs than I am, so he usually runs from them, making them want to chase him more. I usually just try to pet them.
5. Have you seen any bouncing cars (with hydraulics)?
There are some pretty crazy taxis with tons of lights all over them, but I haven't seen the Napoleon Dynamite hydraulics car yet.
6. What was the best meal you have been served?
I absolutely love enchiladas verdes (simple elegance) with strawberries and cream for dessert.
7. What is funniest thing you have done on a p-day?
Play soccer with the young men of our ward. I'm apparently not bad at defense, but that's just because I'm not afraid to take a ball (or 6) to the face, stomach, shoulder, leg, and various other bodily extremities. It hurt, but it was totally worth it.
8. Once you get to 100 pushups will you keep going with a new companion?
We did 100 pushups this morning, and I'm most certainly not going to keep going. I need to work out other stuff than my arms, so I'll be doing a more all-around workout in the mornings.
9. Or will you next start with sit-ups working up to 100?
I just might do that... I don't know, I haven't really thought about it. Elder Hixon and Elder Guerra are leaving me with some of their workout stuff, so I'll probably use that.
10. How many recipes have you collected?
I actually haven't collected any. I think when I leave and can figure out what my favorite foods are I'll get some to bring them home.
