Here are some excerpts from this weeks e-mail. He may be in the MTC and learning Russian but it is the same old Mitch we all know and love : )
The days are long and the weeks are short here in the MTC. My nights are entirely consumed by sleep...not to mention pain. Just kidding...The language is hard and the desk is harder...needless to say, I havent gained much weight. O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, with a voice to shake the earth, and cry repentance unto every people.
to whomever: please send me a package consisting of these things:
-astronaut ice cream
-home baked brownies
-a list of famous russian authors complete with brief biographies
-recent photographs of people laughing
-a picture of a horse drinking a beer
-a cadbury crunchie
That is all I ask for. Thank you for all of your support.
Your's Truly, Elder Paul
