Bon soir family,
thanks for all the letters. dad thanks for the update, those are some major miracles and i'm glad things are working out there.
there is so much to tell that i hope i can remember it all. and so i'm going to jump right in. i am great. the flights from the US were long and hard. we didn't really get any cool opportunities to teach besides that one guy on the first flight i told you about.

we finished our laundry a little bit ago and that was an adventure. my fingers are raw in some places. it took me and elder hales forever. but ca va aller (they say that all the time here, especially to me haha).

yesterday elder hales almost died fasting, and i wasn't far behind. i brought some water to drink once we were done because we were going to finish before we got home, but elder hales had to drink it in church because he was about ready to pass out haha. i drink so much water here, because i am constantly sweating. so once we walked for a half an hour to church and sweated out everything we had in us we were dying, but we made it haha.
its ok, we are all fine here. so much to tell but i have to go so i can send pictures too. but love you all, the questions help me focus my writing so thanks for those. and tell everyone they can email me. thanks so much. love love love. oh ps they didn't have a refill for the scripture marking pen i have at the mtc because they were all out, so when you send a package will you squeeze that in there. no rush and don't feel obligated to send me stuff. i can get pretty much everything i need here, but when that comes that would be helpful. thanks again. love you all. Elder Rybin
love you all. have a great week.
love, elder rybin
