It was so good to talk to him and get caught up on his life - face to face and not over email. He is doing well. He's had some challenges over the past few months but is excited for his new area and responsibilities. He's been transferred to the Westlake YSA Ward and will be the Zone Leader for his Zone.
I sure love that boy and sure am grateful for his example and desire to serve our Lord. We were hoping Emerson's mission call would come before Mother's Day and we could open it all together - but it didn't come... but that's okay - it was a wonderful conversation and the best part was having him give our family prayer at the end of the phone call.
I sure do love all those faces and will be eternally grateful for the pleasure I've had to call them my children. :) It's going to be a looooong wait until Christmas Day! But we can look forward to two skype calls! :)
