Best Present Ever!
On Christmas day we talked to Elder Guthrie and he sounded great. Everyone said he would sound different.....but not really. He still sounds like a good old-fashioned Island boy, except for the occasional pause whilst trying to remember the English translation for certain words!
The number we called was a member's house and it was neat to hear him conversing with his new Mexican friends. Needless to say, we were all very impressed with our bilingual missionary.
He and his companion, Elder Ray from California, are having great success. He had a baptism last week and one planned for each of the next 2 weeks, so he was feeling upbeat about that.
If I see you in person you'd better run if you don't want to hear about his "McGyver" actions......let's just say 4 missionaries in Mexico once again have water again thanks to Jordy. He is his Papa's (and his daddy's) boy!
Can you tell we are mighty proud?
Jordy sends you all his love and best wishes for the New Year.
Again, thanks for all your prayers and support.
mm to Elder Jordan Lane Guthrie
