>It looks like both elders will have p-day on Monday so be watching for letters and updates Tuesdays or Wednesdays. I was at the post office Tueseay, sending packages and got some information about sending packages and mail etc. Anything with a first class stamp (the regular ones) can be forwarded at no extra charge. However, don't send anything "Parcel post" because it creates a "postage due" when it is forwarded and costs them money to receive. "Priority" mail costs a little more than first class and is mostly for packages. Priority mail arrives faster than regular first class mail. You have to have a special envelope for priority letters. I hope that clears up any questions about sending packages and letters. For now, send letters etc. to the mission addresses listed below.
Here is Matt's letter from Monday March 1st.
well i made it safely here and got my new companion his name is elder lambe from mesa arizona. he has been out for only 5 months we are serving in concord in the concord first ward. and have been shotgunned into it meaning we are both new to the area. so finding people to teach has been really tough! our apartment is nice but was left really messy by the last missionaries. now i know why dad always has to have things clean clutter drives me nuts! i feel like i'm always putting something away haha. the ward is really nice but its going to take some time to get used to the weather cause it's either cold and rainy or hot and humid. i'm glad that chris got his call to peru that is so awesome!! he is going to make the best missionary! thats cool that the us is dominating the olympics! haha i can't believe that you got called as camp director again! well you will have fun with that. how did tennis try outs go for paul? and when are you going to hawaii? oh and the thing i would like most is some resipes or how ever you spell that. haha cause i'm sick of cereal the members haven't started to feed us and i'm going crazy! my mission president and his wife are really nice the first day we went to a chinese buffett and i had chicken feet cool huh they aren't bad just bones mostly. i don't know my new address. well i love you talk to you in a week
