Letter from Matlock
Dear (Family – in Japanese Characters),
So yesterday we got a bunch of new Elders from Japan who will be serving in Japan. A lot of them hardly speak English. We went and talked to a few of them. Through broken Japanese and English we were somehow able to figure out that one of them was an accomplished Japanese rapper! And I got to beat box for him. I beat boxed for a Japanese rapper! It was the ultimate of cross lingual and cultural bonding! Coolest thing I’ve ever done, period.
