April 29th, 2013

We were able to talk with Braiden while he had a lay over in Dallas, Texas.  It was so good to hear his voice. He is doing so great and we are so proud of him.  He told us of the many who had written him and how much he appreciated all the letters and packages.

Dear Family,
I am currently here in Chihuahua, Mexico. Not going to lie I´m pretty nervous. I don´t get my new companion until tomorrow. Right now all of us Elders are staying in a small house. There are a total of 22 of us in the house right now. It´s all a mix of Latinos and Americans. I can hardly understand any thing here right now. The city of Chihuahua is pretty big. When we got here the President and his wife greeted us and they fed us food. Our mission president does not speak any English at all his wife can speak some though same with his daughter. This mission is apparently one of the strictest missions in the world. I´m positive it´s for our own safety. I miss all of you so much and think of you all the time. I may be really nervous about speaking the language but I know that Heavenly Father will bless me. In fact this morning on the way to the airport I felt the spirit tell me that I will be blessed. I love this gospel with all my heart, and I love my savior. By small and simple things are great things brought to pass. I know that with all of the effort I give I will be blessed. I love you and I am safely in Chihuahua.

P.S. Our P-day is on Saturday.
