We LOVE Modays.. Its P day!!
Here is Josh's First Letter
I am doing great! My testimony is being
strengthened. I FLY out the 30th at 6 am.
We are leaving the MTC at 2:30 am on the 30th. We have a 3 hour lay-over
in Texas. I have bought some stuff at the bookstore here because we get it
for half price. I am always tired, but I haven't slept passed 6:20 yet. We
are usually up between 5:30 and 6:20. My companion is Elder Ellis. He is
super smart. We follow rules that aren't even rules. Its good tho! My
testimony is growing so strong. I am here because of my testimony. I
love the Lord and this church! I hope the family is well. Don't hold back
information thinking it will make me homesick. I wanna know it all, the
good and the bad.
Love, Elder Lords
We are so proud of Josh and so happy for him! He has already got to meet up with some friends that are in the MTC as well! He told us he went to an amazing devotional on Sunday night at the Marriott Center. Josh is always telling Shayla and Trevin to be nice and an example to everyone. We are so excited to follow him through his mission!
