Later that evening we received this email from him:
Hey guys I’m here alive and well. It’s pretty cool here! My companion is Elder King. He’s from Mesa, Arizona! Umm they kinda just threw us into a room and told us to write our parents so I don’t really know what to say. I like the way I can already feel the spirit so strong and it’s awesome. I’ve seen a few of my friends already so that was exciting. Anyway you’ll hear from me on my p day. I don’t know when that is because they haven’t told me yet. Alright bye!
-Elder St. John
