(received via snail mail 8 Aug 2010)
I am allowed one letter today to let you know I've arrived safely and started working.
My companion's name is Elder Zarate, from upstate New York. I've seen Ryan a few times as well as other friends from THS and Utah. My district and zone are wonderful. The Spirit is strong here.
I am scheduled to leave on August 24. I will email more thoroughly on P-Day (Mondays), so you will hear from me again soon.
Send food! I love you all
-Elder La Follette
