Mother's Day Phone Call

Christopher called today and it was wonderful talking to him.  We talked for about an hour before church and about and hour and a half after church.  While we went to church Jacob stayed home because he has been throwing up and he talked to him by himself for two and a half hours.  All the kids got to talk and Richard and I talked.  This is our last phone call from him.  He only has a little more than 4 months left.

He loves the branch he is in right now.  He also loves his companion.  I can't remember his name but he is from Las Vegas and likes hard work.  Hurray!  Yesterday he roofed his branch president's house.  He was also very excited about finding some boots at a yardsale for $5.00.  He teased Kaber for having a 9mm pistol. His quote was,"There is a place for 9mms in the world.   I think it is in someone's purse."  It was very funny.  He also shared another quote with us it was by N. Eldon Tanner .  "The greatest blessing one can enjoy in life is to go to bed at night with a clear conscience, knowing that he has lived that day in harmony with the teachings of the Savior and has accomplished the work assigned to him to do." He did not know where it was from or who said it so I Googled it for him.  It was from 1975 January New Era.  I love the internet.  It is such a great quote.
