Elliot wrote us a letter the same day as his last email, so there was not a lot of news. He was excited that Elder Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve spoke at the MTC and he recounted some of Elder Holland's comments. I especially liked his comments about missionary work being a battle. Elliot quoted Elder Holland: "We're not shooting bullets, we're handing out bandages." Elliot explained that these words made him very happy because "all I really wanna do is make other people happy. And I hope that people will be willing to hear what I have to say." Somehow, I think they will. He also told us that Carlton Reininger's companion was in Elliot's student ward at BYU. Small world. Here is a copy of his letter.
