Monday Missionary Update

I cannot believe it's our last email from Chile. Our very last. Not gonna lie, a little bittersweet. Of course much more sweet than bitter, but still.......


Subject: Re: Our last email

Hello!!! Thanks for the email or I should say, last email. It was great to hear from you guys, I am so happy to see you guys this Friday and to be able to come home. I actually just have 2 days left, today and tomorrow then Wed, in the morning I go to Osorno. That is so weird. THANKS SOOO MUCH for depositing the money I really needed it. I will get some AWESOME souvenirs!!! I love you so much and am way excited to see you guys!!!! thanks for all that you guys have done for me. There is lots to tell but I will tel you Friday. Love you!!

Love Elder Catmull


Early this morning I got a call from the office in Osorno. It was another missionary calling on behalf of Elder L to let us know he was out of money and needed more. For a minute I about had a heart attack thinking that they were calling to tell me something had happened to him. Just money? Yeah, I can handle that. Crisis swiftly dealt with and now just to get through the next couple of days.

Melissa, I am so excited for you and your family! Like you, I thought the bitter-sweet part of sending a missionary out was at the beginning. But there were definitely feelings of "Finished? Already?" that accompanied our son's return.

(Don't be surprised by the fact that he will be, like, a hundred years old in many ways, and as dumb as he was the day he graduated high school in others! You're both in for an interesting year...)
