to Italy!

This morning I awoke to one of the sweetest sounds I can imagine. This boy’s voice:


Leaving the MTC at 4 a.m., he called from the Salt Lake Airport and is flying to Chicago, Frankfurt and finally Milan. If you read his last letter, you can imagine his tone— giddy, happy, so very excited.

Me too. He’s calling again from Chicago.

    I just noticed a huge grin on my face while reading this. I’m thrilled for you! Counting the minutes until you hear his voice from Chicago.

    Love you!

    Oh I love you. I hope he spoke some brilliant Italian to you. What a beautiful way to wake-up.

    I’m so glad to see the link to Ben’s mission blog! I don’t know if I missed it before, but I look forward to keeping tabs on him.

    I remember! You are probably talking to him now. Have a wonderful day! I hope the smile stays there for days!

    I can’t believe he is already past the MTC stage. How wonderful to hear his voice again. I just know he will be this incredible force for good out in Italy. So excited for the next chapter in his missionary journey.(And hopefully with a “cooler” companion;))
