The One-Year Mark
We recently received this picture in an email from our youngest son, who's serving a full-time 2-year mission in Arizona for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He's the one on the right. Notice the short-sleeve shirts? Ya. It's hot over there in Arizona right now.
Our son just passed his one-year mark on July 17, 2014. That's what the picture is about that he and the other elder are holding. The other elder received that cute picture from his parents. It turned out that July 17, 2014 was his one-year mark as well. In case you can't read the writing on the picture, here's what it says: Happy "Hump" Day! July 17, 2014.
So our son has reached the half-way point of his mission. In one of his emails he said that the first year of his mission has gone by so fast. And in his latest email he wrote, "If this year goes by as fast as the last one did, my mission will be much too short." That's so awesome. It makes me happy to read those words because they show how devoted he is to serving the Lord and the people in Arizona.
Thanks for stopping by!
