The Final MTC Evening

It's my last night in the MTC, I'll call in the morning, anytime between 4 am and noon.  Also, this is my teacher from my first priest retreat when I was 16 and he has been my MTC instructor for the last three weeks.  It was super cool. 
Anyways, I'll talk to you tomorrow.  Love you

Party on, 
Elder Cody Poppleton

Cody sent me this email last night.  I believe he left for the SL airport at 3 AM this morning.  I had his flight itinerary thanks to a secret weapon we have at the church office buildings!  

I knew when his flights would be coming and going so I could guess about when I might hear from him.  I kind of tricked Bella and asked if she had heard from him so I knew he called her first!  It had to be the Portland layover.  I anxiously awaited the call and just when I thought all was lost and he wasn't going to call I realized that there was a time difference!  Phew!  The emotions that came when I saw a number calling from Portland OR were very unexpected.  It was wonderful to hear his voice.  He is doing fantastic.  He is full of excitement and energy to teach the gospel and I am not sure there could be a more proud mother!   I could have used more time to visit with him and to hear about his experiences so far, but his flight was calling. He did say that he ran into so many friends from school and of course they couldn't hug if they were opposite gender so it looks like they finger touch instead. Snagged this picture from Shonee's Facebook page!   Until Christmas Elder Poppleton!
