Steven’s first letters home

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Well I received the first letters from Steven today.  It was very unexpected as I didn’t think that I would receive anything until this Thursday and then I was thinking e-mail.

Well anyway he was pretty excited that he saw both Rex and John the first day and said it was awesome to see them.  He saw Elder Houghton the next day at lunch as well (not sure who that is). He said “I feel the spirit a lot and also feel a love for my companion and others in my district.  They are all awesome.”

He didn’t have a teacher the first day so it was a pretty relaxed day, but they studied and worked on their “purpose” (he memorized it before he left =)).

He also PS’ed that he scored a goal in soccer on P day. He sent his love to everyone!

The second letter was short and mostly about his immunizations,  but he did say that they got a teacher and everything is awesome!  I am glad that he uses that word to describe his experience so far. It makes me smile!!

That’s all for now - he did encourage the use of Dearelder.com and I second that, it’s “awesome” lol.

   Having Steven (Uncle Tenin) as a roomate for the last year was a blessing! He is a great kid! He is one of the kindest people I know. He is my best friend! Steven is very friendly with a magnetic personality. Seeing Steven prepare for his mission and getting to know some of his friends that are on missions or getting ready to go on a mission has been a really neat experience. I loved to see him play with my kids. They already miss Uncle Tenin! I am so excited for Steven to have this opportunity to learn and grow and teach and whatever else happens on a Mission!  I hope that we can maintain this blog to help keep family and friends up to date on Steven and his Mission progress.

Steven is leaving Thursday the 15 to Utah, on his way to the MTC, where he will report on Wednesday the 21st of July. You can register an account with http://www.dearelder.com where you can send steven pouch letters to the MTC and to the Mexico City West Mission for free.
