Elder Talbert's First Day
Today our first letter from Elder Talbert arrived in the mail!! It is so good to hear from him. He is doing really well. His letter was positive and he was enjoying the experience of his first day. This letter was written on Wednesday evening. He will get to email us beginning next Thursday. Other than that his letter was mostly full of the details of his first day - standing in line to see if he had the correct immunizations, orientation meetings, food (dinner was great and he loves the lemonade!), meeting with the Branch Presidency, and getting his companion. His companion is Elder Sizemore and he is also going to Jamaica. They are the only 2 missionaries in their zone going to Jamaica and maybe the only two currently in the MTC going to Jamaica.
