The First Letter!

We received Matt's first letter Friday, July 31st. It reads:

Dear Family,
Today was basically just a rush from room to room for orientation meetings, much like the first day of school. I found out there are about 2400 Elders here, and about 300-400 entered today. My companion is Elder Hyer. He is from Dalls, TX, and so far he seems like a great guy.
Dad was wrong about the rooming assignments; the other companionship in our room is going to Dallas and they leave on Monday. Also, even the people in our district are not all going to Cleveland; it is about an even split between Cleveland and Rapid City, SD. Other than that, the food is good, and everything is good. I'll write to you next week. 'Till then, goodbye.

Elder Smith
