P.S. I met an elder going to Armenia in the MTC [referring to Steve Gallardo’s call to Armenia]. I believe he was there for either 9 or 12 weeks. All I know is it is a very long time. Also that’s awesome that Alayna is going to Paris [referring to Alayna Hudson’s call to Paris, France]. It’s no Africa but oh well, not everyone can be lucky enough to be called here.
