Wednesday night we received a short surprise email from Elder Osborne. We had been told not to expect anything for a while because of the P Day scheduling at the MTC. So it was a fun surprise to hear from him!
Hi Mom! This is J (Elder Osborne). My p-days are Wednesdays, so you can expect more soon. My companion’s name is Elder Huggins. He is fun. I am loving it so far. There is so much to learn here. I hope you are all doing well. I can’t wait to talk to you again with more to talk about. Love you!
And we already have a fun story about Elder Huggins. When we took Elder Osborne to pick up his suits at Mr Mac, we talked with another missionary preparing to serve in Columbus, OH. As we talked, he asked where Elder Osborne would be serving. When we told him Fort Lauderdale, he told us his best friend would be serving in the same mission, same language, and going to the Provo MTC on September 2! His best friend’s name was Elder Huggins!
We are learning that there are lots of tender mercy moments for these missionaries!
