December 9, 2017

Had a remarkable visit from this fella in blue. Ty and his dad Jared, made a special trip on the way home from their family vacation during their lay over to meet me and spend an hour with me and my companion.

I was kinda hesitant that the visit would distract us from the work, but I'm super grateful it happened.  I have to admit, I was a bit nervous that I would be a disappointment to make such an effort to visit me, a missionary in Jersey. All nerves went away when we shook hands and started talking. It was a little tough to find my English words, since we always speak in Spanish, but it was a visit I won't forget and one that recharged my efforts for the next 6 months. 

I really appreciated meeting a young man that you can see and feel the light in. I've shaken hundreds of hands on my mission and spent a lot of time looking into others eyes and Ty is definitely one of those few that you can tell has an awesome heart. I won't forget the efforts and this visit, and I hope they got as much out of it as we did as missionaries. It helped me remember who I was before my mission and why I came out. What a cool family.
