Surprise phone calls from Elliot!

Early this morning, my phone rang and showed an 801 area code.  I didn't immediately make the connection that it could be Elliot calling but it was!  His MTC branch president told the eleven missionaries heading to Oklahoma (six English, five Spanish) that they could call their parents from the SLC airport.  Elliot called his mom first (naturally) and then me.  It was such a great surprise to hear from him.  He loved the MTC but is really excited to be in Oklahoma.  He said that his Spanish is coming along really well.  His flight left this morning sometime after 9:00 a.m. so he is undoubtedly there by now.  We are really looking forward to hearing from him and finding out where he will be assigned and who his companion will be.  We'll post his mailing address as soon as we have it.


  1. Ahhh so exciting!! I heard that there was a 5.1 magnitude earthquake in Oklahoma this morning.. hopefully he's doing okay!

  2. Crazy! Thanks for letting me know. I just put up a post about it.
