We were SO lucky. We got TWO CALLS! One in the morning with all the fam, and then another wonderful, quiet one in the evening just with mom & dad. (with mission pres. permission of course) We even got to visit with his companion in Spanish-a sharp young elder from Barcelona, Spain. Our Steve is on the right and his comp is in the middle.
It was so fun to hear from him and see his spiritual growth and maturity and yet he is still the fun-loving good ol' Steve. Our evening call was wonderful and the main topic of discussion was his release and the plans..... Guess who's going to Nashville, TN???
Mom & Dad of course to pick him up and take a little tour and escort him home. So we are highlighting the day of April 6, 2009 for a quick (ha) flight to Nashville, then the next day, a wonderful temple visit with the elders, then the next day we get to keep him for good and meet some of the wonderful people he served. Then it's home to AZ and the welcome from the fam.....So you can see we have some exciting times coming in 2009!
