Missionary Dan Email #13 from Choibalsan, Mongolia

Mongolian children

Mongolian children Daniel recently visited

This week was a busy week with my companion and I running between some lessons to get there in time. We also worked with the branch missionaries to come with us so we could teach more at the same time. We have wonderful branch missionaries here that are willing to come with us almost every day.

This week I started teaching at a new location. It is called The Extra Ordinary Peoples or something like that. The name is really fitting for who they were. I think their job is fire fighting. I came in and they were all rushing around saying, the teacher is here! When they all filed in I asked them what they knew.

Basically nothing besides, my name is…, hi, OK. So they asked me to start with the ABCs. So I taught the song and we sang it a lot. It was so funny.

After singing five or six times I said, “Good.” Wrote it on the board etc… They all started freaking out, trying to say it. What? What’d he say? What’s it mean… Then I’d say it again and they try and try and try. Then after trying for awhile they would want me to say it again, so they would start yelling at each other to be quiet so they could hear me. Ha ha. I really respect their effort. After that I taught them how to count to ten. He he. So that was a highlight of my week.

Transfers are this week. I am sure my companion and I are staying here. I got a couple of texts from a friend of the lady who translated my companion’s letter. That was neat. They just say Hi etc… So no pictures this week, I didn’t really take any good ones. It is starting to warm up a bit to about -20 degrees C.

Thanks for all the support.
Love Elder Willoughby.
