Elder Smith meeting his Mission President and Wife for the First Time
President James Carl Perry and Sister Sara Lisa Martenson Perry
25 January 2012
Virginia Richmond Mission
Enclosed with this picture was the following scribbled note:
"I made it! I'm here at the mission home in Richmond, Virginia.
Everything went well with my travels with no problems.
It appears that this mission is a lot more diverse than what
I had thought, but more on that later.
I'm really going to enjoy it out here. President and Sister Perry are
amazing. Don't worry about me because from what I've heard...
'the gangs like missionaries here'.
However, I'm sure I'll come home with some interesting stories.
I love you all and I hope that you're not taking my absence
too terribly." (smile)
Elder Hyrum Smith
