Preston's 1st letter to mom from the DR

July 17, 2008
We just got back from doing service outside in the real world, and it was pretty crazy. This place is just like how I imagined it. People going crazy on the streets, poor, people staring at you..It's pretty interesting. It's humid so you can imagine how much I was sweating..My whole shirt changed colors...

My new companion for the MTC is Elder Barrett. He's from California and he's way cool too. We are different in some ways and so it makes it interesting. Oh mom you should see the Santo Domingo temple! It's incredible. Surspringly huge for it being in Santo Domingo. We don't get to go in till next Thursday. You should go on the internet and look at pictures of it. The MTC is not even fifty yards away.

These two Elders from my mission came to the MTC yesterday to make a quick stop for something and they talked about the mission for a little bit and made me that much more excited. I can't wait to get out there! 5 more weeks...

This is way awesome!! Love it! Preston is doing incrediable, and I have received 3 letters from him so far from the MTC before he left for the Dominican. We got to talk on the phone for 1 hour while he was on a layover to Dominican. I will scan parts of his letters and have them posted. I will also post his MTC pictures he sent me last week.
Thanks Ryan for doing this..

Love ya!!
Mom
