Elder July 4th Letter & Pictures




Today I checked the mail...and found my son's latest letter and fabulous pictures enclosed! He's standing next to a giant Book of Mormon-he said it was used as a display outside, but found it's way into the church's basement. His companion, Elder "Spencer" is standing by a road they followed to see a less active member. The statues were created for the World Soccer Games-hosted by Switzerland! The Elders have been able to teach many people this month. They feel so happy to be there :) We love hearing about the kindness of the investigators and the food they provide too. I feel so grateful to the people there, who will invite my son and his companion in for a discussion and hot food. The Elders too are very touched by simple kindness and a willingness to learn a language (and the gospel). We send our love and thanks to all that Elder will meet.
