Week 100

Tanner had been sick with a cough but an investigator gave him some medicine and now he is feeling better. I am glad that the members and investigators look out for the missionaries. This week they had three investigators in church instead of zero. Tanner was happy about that.
This year will be Tanner’s first time to vote. He received his absentee ballot in the mail and now he needs to vote and mail it back to the States. It is hard to vote for people when you are not hear to know everything about them. He only knows what we tell him and what the people in Mexico tell him Good luck Tanner!
Tanner asked me if he could ask us a serious question. He wanted to know if he returned for someone after his mission to bring her back to the U.S. would we get mad at him? Be honest. I was so shocked and did not know what to say. Then he sent sent a picture and said isn’t she beautiful? It was a picture of his zone leader Elder Gomez in a dress. his companion wanted Tanner to play the joke on us. Silly guys.


Week 99

Tanner turns 21 this week. Hard to believe that he is that old but this is his second birthday in the mission field.
Tanner did not have much to say this week. He is working hard until he leaves. Trying to plan what he is bring him and if he is going to bring both suitcases home or just one. I am hoping that he just brings one and leaves most of everything there.
He sent a cool video to watch. https://www.mormonchannel.org/watch/series/bible-videos/i-have-kept-the-faith

Week 98

Only a few more week and Tanner will be home. This week he was able to attend the temple in Mexico City as a zone. He said that it was really cool and that he was finally able to go there.
Tanner is anxious to be able to go to some concerts when he comes home and to be able to play his guitars and listen to his music.
Part of Tanner’s email this week. I thought it was funny!”My companion says I talk every night in my sleep. Last night I was shouting with my fist raised in the air saying,”Si se puede” (yes you can) a bunch of my time. My companion said it was annoying haha. He also says almost every night I am talking in English but he can’t understand a thing. He will probably video tape me one night so I can see what I say.” I hope his companion videos him talking in his sleep, I would love to see it.
We received an email with Tanner’s final travel ITINERARY . He flies home on November 14, 2016 and his plane lands at 2:25pm. I can’t wait. Of course I am taking the day off so I can get the everything ready for him.
