Sept. 28th, 2015 update - over one year!

Time is flying by so quickly! Elder Reed has officially passed the 1 year mark of his 2 year mission - wow!! 

Elder Reed shared in his letter that he was greatly surprised with many things this week, and that two of them are journal-related. He said that, when he was baptized 12 years ago, he was presented with 2 journals, both from family, and he can now gladly report that he has completely filled out the two of them and has started another journal! He also couldn't remember how old his brother is this year.... :) But he shared his love to him and everyone having birthdays in September!

He was also excited to share that there was a member there who received their mission call and found out they had only a month until reporting - not a lot of time! But exciting!

Elder Reed said that he also has a great desire to read the Book of Mormon in Spanish during his personal study time, and that he is excited to learn so many new things. Scriptures are such a blessing from a loving Heavenly Father!

Elder Reed signed his letter: "Keep reading, forgiving, and loving your neighbor & family - Until next week, Elder Reed"

They are excited about the essentials of life. :)

Pizza to celebrate the one-year mark!
