We Just Got a Letter! We Just Got a Letter!

We arrived home from our Ward Family Reunion Sunday afternoon and had 2 letters waiting for us from Brayden.  I was so happy to hear how he was doing.  He says his companion, Elder Mills is the total opposite of him but they get along very well.  The two of them are rivals in every way.  Elder Mills, is from Riverton and went to Riverton High (Bingham's rival).  He attended BYU for 2 semesters while Brayden attended the UofU.   Brayden says he is a very good spirited kid. They are both going to Indiana so there is time for Brayden to convert him from the dark side.  They both leave the MTC for Indiana on August 9th.  The same day as Brach's wedding, which is ok because we aren't allowed to see him off at the airport. I am glad he will be traveling with someone he knows.

Elder Mills, Elder Knowles, Elder Bengtzen
 He told us his mornings start at 6:15am.  (I don't know if Brayden even knows that is an hour on the clock.) He has asked for food.  Dinner is at 4:30pm so he needs his regular late night snack.  The thing he needs most is Dr. Pepper.  He says there isn't any anywhere on campus and so he "is gonna die!" Don't worry, I sent him with a big bottle of Ibuprofen to ward off the headaches.

He bore his testimony and has challenged all of us to read the Book of Mormon and pray every day.  We are up for the challenge and want you all to do the same.

Day 2 was a very busy day. He said they had 3 hours of personal study, 1 hour of companion study and 3 hours of class.  He also had an interview with his branch president and was asked to be a district leader.  He has accepted the overwhelming task and knows the Lord will bless and guide him. I am so proud of him!!!
