Here is an excerpt from Elder J. Morgan’s recent letter home:
So, my new companion is Elder Ribitskii!! He is from Ukraine, he knows Ukrainian, Russian, and hardly speaks English, so this means my Russian will improve a lot this transfer. Basically I will have to speak Russian all the time now ha ha.
We celebrated New Years on Saturday, nothing special, we just made Dinner, had some Buckwheat and Chicken, and told scary stories which literally prevented me from falling asleep for a few hours ha ha so new years day I was very very tired. Also someone knocked on the door in the middle of the night and I flipped out and couldn’t fall asleep after that ha ha. Pranksters!
