This entry are reflections of our Skype call on Mother’s Day!  Elder Laing called and we were so excited!  We put the call on our TV so we could see him “larger than life!”

He looked great!  Sounded so happy and told us that he loves his mission and the people! He shared that the two things he was most worried about when he left on his mission was the food and being homesick.  He said he loves the food he has eaten and is not homesick!  His ward had a Mother’s Day celebration complete with a mariachi band and cookout.

He told us that he enjoys sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and seeing the changes that happen in lives of other when they hear it. He shared with us Matthew 16: 24-26 as being especially meaningful to him.

 24 ¶Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We enjoyed the call and love our missionary so much.
