Elder Prescott update

Elder Prescott has now been out on his mission for almost 5 months! I cannot believe it has been that long! Even though we miss him, we know he is doing exactly what he is supposed to be doing! It's worth the sacrifice - especially every time he sends me a picture of his smiling face! I love that he is becoming a Disciple of Jesus Christ, you can see it in his countenance!

Since these pictures were taken, Elder Prescott has been transferred & is no longer with Elder Huata nor is he in the same district with these other missionaries. I'm so thankful that he has served with some awesome young men so far. It is wonderful to see the change in him as he has learned to love so many different people. That alone is a witness of what the spirit of Jesus Christ can do for a person! I am so thankful for the members in Utah too - I can't tell you how many times I've received random texts with pictures of him & his companion. It brightens my day every time! Next time you have missionaries over, snap a picture of them & send it to their parents. It is a wonderful surprise & they will LOVE it! Most of all I am thankful for a son who is willing to leave home, his family, his friends, his band, his skateboard, a comfortable life & everything else to teach others of Jesus Christ & God's plan for us. It is truly amazing to see the transformation that is taking place in HIM as he searches for people to bring them a truth that will change THEIR lives.
