Here are some notes from Ty's first letter home. This Elder is not long on words. I hope that will change, but at any rate, here is what he wrote:
It has been crazy and fun! The first day was really good. We helped watch and teach these 3 investigators and I really learned a lot and the Spirit was really strong. My companion is Elder Schvaneveldt (Shwan-velt) and he is way cool and it's fun. Our other 2 companions in our dorm are Elder McCullan who is 6'7" and Elder Mathisen 6'4". Then we have 3 other sister missionaries in our district, but one of them is being transferred because her Spanish is so good.
He then lets us know that he will fill us in on Wednesday, which is his P-day.
