We received a letter today from Alex. He was allowed to write and let us know he was safe and sound. He said he would like his mailbox to be less empty. He is in a tripanoniship ( 3 missionaries) and he likes them both. He is learning Spanish already. His branch president is the judge who convicted him of a misdemeanor! He is scheduled to leave on September 7 for the Spain MTC if he gets his Visa so say your prayers please! He said to go to a wbsite called DearElder.com to make his mailbox less empty! It was great to hear from him.
