Presented here are portions of Elder Daniel Willoughby’s twenty eighth 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.
Sorry for the delayed email. Yesterday when we went to the Internet it wasn’t working. We went to three places and they all weren’t working. So I have a few minutes right now. Elder Henson, my companion got transferred Saturday. I stayed in the area and Od Bayar is my new companion. He is in the same group, which is cool. We get along great, he likes to exercise so I’ll start doing that again. As for the first transfer in a mission, mine was great. Some people think it’s hard. It’s different for everyone.
The fair looked like it was tons of fun. The pictures are awesome to look at too. Thanks for sending them. That’s a big TV too, by the way. Happy anniversary! [Rickety note: Jill wanted a big screen TV for our anniversary]
Secret American Store
There is plenty of clothes here to buy and traditional Mongolian clothing. I think the shipping cost is enormously high though. I’ll ask some other missionaries to see what they have done to see what’s best. Elder Henson showed me a secret American store, so we bought a big thing of pancake mix. That is really good. We eat lamb a lot still though. It isn’t my first choice of meat to eat but I can’t complain.
Well. Got to go. I’ll hopefully get to write a good response next week.
Love, Elder Willoughby
