He's served and loved and learned from the beautiful people here.
Of course, being Travis, he sends home numerous photos of food.
He may be a working machine, but every once in a while, on P-days, he and the other missionaries can play a little--be it on a fútbol field, a snowy volcano, or by a waterfall.
Travis turned 20 last month, and like a true adult he spent the day working. He did, however, buy a Chilean apple pie to celebrate with his companion. (Yes, that candle is a Q-tip.)
My mother-heart is comforted to know that he is happy and finding joy in his service and sacrifice. I am grateful for his personal growth and spiritual journey to truly know God and that he finds simple pleasures along the way.
After twelve weeks together Elder O. has been transferred to a different city and Elder Woodfield will be TRAINING his next companion--a brand new missionary fresh from the Missionary Training Center. On to the next adventure!
