GREATEST DAY EVER!! (OR AT LEAST FOR THE LAST 7 WEEKS!)
So, today was pretty much the greatest day! Tyler sent an email around 12:30. In it he said that when they returned from the Temple this morning, several of them were called into the Travel Office at the MTC. They told the missionaries to pack a bag and that they would be leaving the MTC at 2:30 to fly to Boise to meet with the Consulate about their Visa’s. He said 10 missionaries would be going. They would fly out on Monday afternoon, meet with the Consulate on Tuesday, and then fly back on Wednesday. Around 5:00, my cell phone rang, on the caller ID was a number that I didn’t recognize. When I said ‘hello” the voice on the other end said “Hi Mom”. It was Tyler calling from the airport!! He sounded SO GREAT!!! He said everything is going great and he loves being where he is! His voice had a little bit of an accent and he said that sometimes he can’t think of the English word for what he wants to say, only the Spanish words. He was glad to have a little field trip and get out of the MTC for a couple of days and if everything goes well in Boise, he will be flying to Mexico two weeks from tomorrow. He has been in the MTC for nearly 7 weeks. It was so great to hear his voice. I have been missing him so much! I could not be more proud of him! That was the greatest Christmas gift I could have received! When they are in the MTC at Christmas, they do not get to call home so I guess this was to make up for that!
