Sis. Gamez, in my old ward, "adopted" an African missionary. Which basically means she writes him letters and sends him packages, because the African missionaries don't often have anyone to do that for them. His letters are SO much fun to read. He's serving in the same mission as my son, Elder Mendenhall. Read Elder Ssesanga's letters and letters from Sis. Gamez's son (who is serving in New Jersey) here.
