Short email this week; more pictures of things he saw than story. A lot of what he wrote was about transfer day:
Shattering last week's record w/ 3,249 words (I'm pretty sure that that's more than anyone heard from him during the previous 20 years), Matthew shared many details of his week, the highs and the lows.
Matthew proudly told his sister that he now holds the record for the longest family letter (pasting the body into LibreOffice shows 2,565 words)
Matthew's now sending most of his letters to a family mailing list, so more people are getting all of the details there, and I expect that fewer -- mostly non-family -- will be looking here. As a result, these entries may become shorter on average. Or not.
There's little to recommend the town of Fred, but the elders there do have one of the nicest homes a missionary could hope for -- or did.
This week was exhausting for some reason, and Elder Beyeler and I were both more than ready for P-day to come.
