Excerpt from January 31st email: "My new companion is great and we get along really well. Her name is Hermana Alyssa Herrin and is from Idaho Falls. She studied Opera at Idaho state for a year and then studied drama education at BYU, she has already sung 3 solos in her five days here…her voice is beautiful and I get embarrassed having to sing hymns with her. She really reminds me of me when I got to Argentina: totally lost and uncomfortable with the fact that the mission is nothing but glamorous. I am really proud of her though, she is a trooper and everyday complains less. We are really going to enjoy this time together, I am sure of it."
