TERRIFIC DAY!! The day started off with a wonderful phone call from Elder Harris. We were able to talk to him for about 20 minutes. He was in the Salt Lake Airport waiting to board his plane to Arizona. He was happy and upbeat. He said the MTC was mentally exhausting but well worth the effort. He was excited to enter the 'real' mission field. We were also able to speak with his companion for a couple of minutes. Elder Price is from the Salam/Payson area of Utah. He said The Elder Harris is a great companion who really helped him feel the Spirit. He said Elder Harris was ver kind, helpful and out going.
We also got a hand written letter from Kyle that was beautiful! He loved the MTC. He said his district got along very well. He was anticipating the World Wide Broadcast about missionary work and was super excited he would get to attend. He was able to give his first blessing to Elder Davidson and the Spirit there was AMAZING!!
Later this morning we a heart warming phone call from Kyle's MTC teacher, Nate Ferguson. He said the Elder Harris was the best missionary he had ever taught. He said Elder Harris was so humble and filled with the spirit. He said he understood the purpose of missionary work and was more prepared than another missionary he had ever worked with. He had the knowledge and understanding of the gospel of missionary who had been in the field for 18 months. The phone call was very touching and comforting.
We look forward to hearing from Elder Harris in the next day or two. We will post his address and hopefully some pictures.
