Through this incredible Missionary Mom Email group I have met so many fun moms with Missionaries serving in Guatemala and El Salvador. They have become dear friends even though I haven't met any of them face to face.
Eileen Swenson's son Shawn came home the first week of January from Guatemala City North and they live less than 30 minutes away from us. We arranged for our sons to meet the Saturday before Jordan left. What a great day....to see Elder Swenson so excited from his service and the love for the people there still so fresh in his heart and Jordan so excited to go there and start his own mission. We spent several hours looking at photos and souvenirs that he and his mom brought over. He answered so many of our questions and set our minds at ease of some of the fears. We are so thankful for this new friendship that we were able to receive in our lives. We were blessed with an excitement unlike any we had ever felt for this upcoming mission experience.
