November 7, 2008 - We received our first Email from Colyn. It is finally set up! Yea! He says that thanks to Sra. Denney's Spanish class in middle school, he is really doing well with Spanish. He is remembering a ton! He received all his Spanish materials and he says it is alot! He doesn't know yet when he will be going to Peru. On Tuesday night, Sister Beck, the General Relief Society President, spoke at their devotional. He told Chase that he would have been proud of him. Colyn had to step out of his comfort zone, and make phone calls to "total strangers" at the Recall Center at the MTC. (He has always had his little brother along side him to do these sorts of "scary" things for him - like talk to people.) He thought Chase would definitely appreciate his telemarketing skills. (Chase used to work at a telemarketing company). Chase and I (Mom) got a big kick out of hearing this. He also told us that he needs us to send him like a catrillion things.
Oh how happy I get when I hear from my son! He is missed so much!
