One Week Later

We probably won't be communicating with Garrett for a few more weeks. They can't email from the MTC and the mail takes 3 or so weeks. I have been emailing a Mom from Ogden whose son, Elder Jeff Speechly, went out the same time as Garrett. She knows the MTC President and his wife. She heard from her son today and below is what she had to say. It is great to get any information we can and to find out how things are going in Ghana.

He was at the Temple and the Elders that had been endowed got out earlier than the rest so he got to call. He mentioned Elder Adams. He loves him and I guess they are good buds. He said they get along great. I told him you and I have been emailing on the MM website He was excited. He said the temple was amazing. He said they don't get to email from the MTC but that they get out to see Elder Holland on the 23rd. Jeff's companion is from Ethiopia. He said the humidity is hard to get used to and the food. He said they have eaten the same thing about four times. He loves Pres Froerer and his wife. They have 17 English speaking missionaries and the rest are learning French. There is 51 missionaries there. He said that they have an interpreter in class and it makes it hard to learn because there is so much going on. He sounded so happy and It made my day!!!
