June 14, 2010

Cody left the MTC with 15 other missionaries headed to Concepcion Chile today. We were fortunate enough to hear from him when he landed in Dallas. He only had about 15 minutes of talking time but it was great to hear his voice and his confidence. He is excited to go serve the Lord for the next 22 months down in Chile. He is nervous as he knows he isn't great at the language yet but with faith and prayers he will come to know the language in a short amount of time. He asked that we all pray for him to pick up the language quickly as he knows he has made remarkable strides so far with learning Spanish thanks to many prayers in his behalf but knows he will need to learn much more when he gets down there. He will spend the night at the mission home and will be gettting a new companion first thing Wednesday morning (we heard this morning that he has a new companion who will be training him is Elder Garcia and they will be serving in sector of Los Volcanes and located in the city of Chillan) . We also learned from one of the other missionary mom's that his p-day will be on Monday's so we hope to hear from him this coming Monday and he should have closer to an hour on the computer so we may get longer letters from him. We are excited as a family to hear all the wonderful stories about the Chilean people and watch the growth of a great young man. Adios until Monday.
