I got a letter!

One of my best friends Doanld, is on his mission in Peru and has been for almost 2 years! It has been a very emotional time for me firstly because he was gone for 2 years and also because in the 2 years, I've recieved ONE letter. ONE. I wrote maybe 75 letters and I only got one. So I have been really upset about it this whole time but my dad called me on Sunday and said that Donalds mom called and said that she had a stack of letters for me!! For some reason all of his letters were returned to him so he just sent them home. A whole stack!! And then yesterday I got a letter from him in the mail. He also included a picture of him and his companion on P Day in a field with llamas... of course. It's Peru what else do you do on P Days?! :) So I'm very very happy right now. He gets home August 13 and I can't wait!King of the Mountain in Peru
