Presented here are portions of Elder Daniel Willoughby’s eighteenth email from the Mongolia Ulaanbaatar Mission. If anyone wishes to send Daniel a message, write it in the comments and I will make sure he receives it.
Ulaanbaatar Mongolia West Stake
It was history in the making for Mongolia. The first stake was formed yesterday. I was happy to see how many members were there. What impressed me was when the Mongolians that accepted the new callings in the stake seemed like they had been members their whole lives. To have the Church already have a stake here shows to anyone that it really is true.
We traveled to the country side this preparation day. It was an adventure and took up most of the day so I can’t write much. The picture is of a hike we went on [Rickety note: It appears Daniel sent the wrong photograph]. It is similar to hiking in Utah. The sky is very blue here.
Good luck! You’ll be great. There is granola cereal at the far left side of the cafeteria. I enjoyed that, Paul told me about it. I liked the very front of the bleachers for the firesides and devotionals. Careful though some of the seats are slightly broken and lean forward. Anyway you’ll figure it out. It will be great.
Love, Elder Willoughby
