Man on a mission!

 Colton sure does miss driving the 57, he found a pretty close match. 
 Elder Thomas & Elder Colligan
 On the couch:  Elder Fotofili, Elder Colligan, Elder I can't remember (sorry) and in front Elder Vera.  Yellow chair: You know! 

 Not sure why he didn't pick a tree with a bigger trunk.
 He must have liked this yard decoration to send a picture of it.  Funny!
So I was informed by Colton that some of my post titles (ex. Happiness) are to girly and not manly enough.  So from now on, only comments and titles will appear on this blog that are manly.  Judging from the picture above of him sitting in a kids play structure he should definately send more manly pictures!

All is well with Elder Thomas.  His 3 month training is up so he could possibly get transferred today (7/15/13).  I will keep you posted on his address change if there is one.

A letter from the Pres.

Colton's branch President sent out an e-mail with pictures to all the Elders families.  Super thoughtful!  Here are some of his kind words:

"What a wonderful group of missionaries.  They will be future leaders of the church and what leaders they will be.  What wonderful love they have for the people.  They are so willing to assist and serve in any way they can.  We so deeply appreciate how they have been raised and for the testimonies they have.  We love them here and will be sad when they get transferred.  They are doing so well and love the work.  Elder Thomas always has a smile on his face!  I'm sure you love and miss them but we need them here a little while longer."

I love hearing that Colton is happy, his letters express that and obviously it shows on his face!
