Elder Kvavle has reached Fairbanks, Alaska on 3.1.2011. After traveling from the MTC (in Provo, Utah) up the Anchorage, Alaska. Elder Kvavle and the 9 other missionaries were all able to travel together. Mission President Brother Dance had them all out tracking as soon as they got back to the mission home. "It was fun" Elder Kvavle said in his letter.
"My companions name is Elder Espi, he is from the Philippians! Crazy huh. He is 24, he has been out for 16 months. He is a good trainer and a good guy. Oh the first night i was here is was -10! Its crazy cold here. I am the driver of our truck. So as you can imagine i am learning to drive on ice and snow. Here is Fairbanks there is like no wind which is good. Tracking is interesting haha because the houses are really far apart and EVERYONE here has at least 1 dog!"
"We have a few potential investigators we found since i have been here, but most people are not receptive. We do quite a bit of less active work. The ward has about 90 members? Maybe more i am probably wrong on that guess. It makes me miss home ward, so many more people."
