"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight."

FINALLY heard from him.

Dated - 2/15/2012

"So the first day is done... it's been interesting. I miss you all so much already, but at the same time I know I'm supposed to be here! And it's exciting like no other!!

My companion is a awesome Welsh guy from Welsh!!  Elder Jones, he's really rad!  Rides trail bikes...lol  I know heavenly father loves me haha.  Trail bikes are where they take dirt bikes and get them over impossible objects, rocks and cliffs.  Something I'v always wanted to do!!  My other room mates are cool, one is actually from Canada, and is going to Calgary also.  Awesome accent lol.  These next two years are going to be awesome thats all I gotta say...eh? lol.

MTCs pretty amazing majorly high (something?) but still cool.  Still miss everyone though..  Anyways I gotta kill the lights here soon.  I'll write asap!! I love you guys.  Thank you for everything, I appreciate it. 

Your son, Shelbey"

So he sounds good and excited, we couldn't ask for more than that.  Except for him to be home.  We miss and love you like no other.

We dropped Shelbey off on Wednesday, February 15, around 1pm.  Never saw so many boys in suits in one place.  The church sure has the delivery of these boys down to a science.  I will be posting some photos, when I figure out how to get them off my camera/phone.  (My techie is gone!!!) He made me promise not to call and ask him how to do something with the tv, computer, dvd player, internet or my phone......I don't think there is anything else I need help with.

Wanted to thank everyone in SLC that helped keep us busy on Tuesday.  Gotta love family!!!  Porter, you were a life saver. (You know what I mean..)  Also want to thank everyone for helping us say goodbye on Sunday.  This meant alot to all three of us.  Again, pictures to come soon.
