BEST PHONE CALL EVER!!
On Monday, October 8 Maveric left the MTC and headed to Puerto Rico. His flight left Salt Lake City at 6:00 am. We did not receive a phone call from Salt Lake and we were a little disappointed. However, as soon as he got off the plane in Texas we got the call. Best Call Ever!!! As soon as I heard his voice I broke down. At that moment I realized just exactly how much I have missed that boy. We were able to talk to him for quite a while and it was wonderful. Dave and I both took the day off work and the girls missed school so we could all talk to him. It was a blessed day!!! That is, however, the only time we heard from him. There were no more calls. We tracked his flight online and made sure it landed safely in Puerto Rico. Whew!!! The next couple days were tough for us. We just wanted to know that he was okay and that he found the right people once he arrived. We received an email from President Alvarado, the mission President, and he told us that Maveric arrived safely and he has already been placed with a companion and they are busy doing the work. We feel very blessed knowing that he is okay. The only way we are able to handle this is through prayers and faith. We believe full heartedly that he is doing the right thing and we are so very proud of him. But, it definately is hard to have him gone. I ask my Heavenly Father every day to watch over and protect him and I believe that those prayers are being heard and answered. Thank you to all of you for your prayers as well. It truly is appeciated. I love you all!!! Monday is his P Day so I am hoping for an email. I will make sure to let you all know how he is doing. Also, I am hoping to get an address so we can start writing to him:)
