Elder Kilmer in Ponca City

Hi everyone,

We finally heard from Josh today.  It had been 10 days since his last letter and we were unsure of where he was, but he has arrived safely in his first area, Ponca City, Oklahoma.  According to Google Maps, Ponca City is Northeast of Oklahoma City, not far from the Kansas boarder.

Population in Ponca City is 25,000, and apparently not many of them are Marshallese speaking as he has only had one opportunity to speak Marshallese so far.

Once again, he has two companions.  They are Elder Nicholus (Nicholas? Nikolaj?) who is also Marshallese speaking, and Elder Bills who is English speaking.  Both have been out for nine months already.

Elder Bills will be transferred with the next transfer in a couple of weeks.  We are not sure if Josh is staying there or not; he seemed uncertain.

If any of you are interested in sending him a letter, you can do so directly at:

Elder Josh Kilmer
1016 N Pine Street
Ponca City, Oklahoma 74601

When he wrote us he said he hadn't even had a chance to unpack yet, so he must be busy.  He said we can be happy that we are more important than his luggage.  He said he would write a general letter we could publish soon.  That's it for now.  Thank you for your love and prayers, support, and letters.
