"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."
~ Proverbs 3:5-6

We got a call from Shelbey, he was at the Denver airport with a layover.  It was hard, he had other missionaries waiting for the phone.  It was REALY good to talk to him.  He was tired, only having 2 hours of sleep.  He had to be at the SLC airport at 3am!!  And we know this boy is not a morning person.  there was 7 missionaries all headed to Calgary, including Shelbey.  He will be landing in Calgary at 11:30 (10:30am our time).  He will have some time to get situated and pick up a few other items.

Here is the Canada address to use, until further notice:  Elder Shelbey King
                                                                           Canada Calgary Mission
                                                                           7044 Farrell Rd SE
                                                                           Calgary, ABT2H0T2

Be sure to email him, he really appreciated all the packages and dearelder letters.  He said that really kept him going.  So his permenant email address is:  shelbey.king@myldsmail.net  He won't be able to answer, but at least he will get to keep in touch. 

He was really glad to get this news.  Jimmy had his baby, well not him, but his wife!! Hehe  Healthy, beautiful baby boy.  James the III was born the day after Shelbey left.  I think they did that on purpose!!??Jimmy said that Shelbey will be 'Uncle Shelbey' from now on... join the ranks, his family has been calling him that for 12 years!!

Small delay here, he just called back, his flight was delayed for 1/2 hour.  So we were able to talk for a bit more...  one happy mom and dad here....anyway....back to the blog.  At least I didn't cry as much as the first time, and was able to have a discussion. (really embarrassed face inserted here)

Now that he will have a schedule to letters and email, I will be able to keep this site updated on a regular basis. So check back often.
